The famous saying Small family is a happy family has been significantly re-quoted as “Healthy family is a Happy family” since health is very much related to happiness. Therefore it would be wise to say that a ‘Healthy District’ is a Happy District asserted Lunthang Haokip, Executive Member (Vety.&Med.), Autonomous District Council Sadar Hills while adding that when all the district of the state becomes healthy, Manipur will be automatically a happy state.Lunthang Haokip was speaking on the sidelines of the first Free Medical Camp conducted yesterday at Chalva village, exactly 50 Km away from Kangpokpi along the Imphal–Tamenglong road.
