Dilip Joshi, who has been raising laughter through his show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chasmah talks about things that makes him happy

What brings a smile to your face?
Happy faces bring a smile to my face. Nature, flowers, birds also make me happy.

Are you a happy person in life?
I am a happy person because I am content. I follow the path shown by Swami Narayan. Any honest and innocent effort makes me smile.

What do you find happiness in?
Little things bring constant joy and happiness in life. Big joys happen only once in a while. They cannot be a constant source of happiness. A small flower given by somebody, a person walking on the road looking at me and smiling, a child waving at me in recognition, some nice food made at home, a child laughing innocently... One has to enjoy all these, if one wants to remain happy.

What tips would you give people to be happy?
Live and let live. Be kind to people weaker than you. Remember that a small gesture of kindness can bring a thousand watt smile to somebody's face. Don't be in so much of a rush that you can't even appreciate a flower in bloom. Remember that laughter is very precious. Enjoy it and preserve it. Even if you are angry laugh it off. Don't let that anger simmer inside. Your personality should be such that when you meet people, it should automatically bring a smile to their face. Be positive.

Do you think it's nice for someone to be happy-go-lucky?
It's great to have a happy-go-lucky nature. But sometimes people go over board and use this to disguise their indifference towards others, which is not good.
