My name is Gopi Menon or just Gopi for short. I have been involved in electrical engineering most of my working life and am now retired. However, my
passion has always been about the philosophy of happy living rather than engineering.
Throughout my childhood, my teenage and adulthood, I have been
absolutely confused and disappointed with the traditional methods for
achieving happiness taught to us by ancient religious teachers and
So for decades I have been avidly searching for the truth about `happiness’ by reading books, by attending seminars and so on. However, it is only after much introspection that I finally stumbled upon a way to be happy every day of our lives. I learned that we can enjoy serenity and happiness in spite of the confusion, sorrows and miseries of daily life. This is what I share in my first book Daily Happy Living.
I have always loved reading books of all types (including fiction and non-fiction) but my favorite genre is self-help, inspirational and motivational books. Some of my favorite old authors were William James, Emerson, Napoleon Hill, Og Mandino and so on, whereas my newer favorites are Tony Robbins, Mike Dooley, Don Miguel Ruiz etc.
Regarding family, my wife and I just celebrated our fortieth anniversary. We are blessed with three wonderful sons and four lovely grandchildren who bring us endless joy.
