Happiness is the ultimate luxury you can have. Choose it.
I STARTED OFF SIX MONTHS AGO by exploring the concept of luxury through these columns. It is a journey that I enjoyed immensely. I realised how shallow some ideas of luxury were, how they changed from time to time and from place to place. I realised luxury isn’t always about opulence. Sometimes the things we take for granted at a particular place and time, for instance water, become a luxury at another. Imagine being stranded in a desert. Given a choice between a Patek Philippe and drinking water, most of us would choose the latter.
