the idea of happiness sounds quite alien to a discerning mind. Orwell is a firm believer it happiness being a western concept of negation. He discusses, in great detail, the idea of heaven being that which is not hell! Right from catholic idea of happiness of heaven to be well fed and watching the torments of hell to the islamic viewing of being free to choose among the 77 virgins promised to those who are heaven-worthy, the idea of heaven is churlish at best. So what comprises of happiness, is happiness an ideal worthy of living for?
