Hi, I'm Sandip Roy. I am a Medical Doctor and Positive Psychology Blogger. I am currently living in New Delhi, India.

My interests range from Positive Psychology to Bionics to Cosmology. I read around 20 books a year. I am also interested in writing, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

I'm the founder and chief editor of the positive psychology blog from India, Happiness India Project.

I also speak to corporate, student, and general audience on Happiness Science. I talk on how one can raise their happiness levels, and how being happier can bring sweepingly positive changes to one's personal and professional stories. My happiness techniques are based on psychological research.

Happiness India Project is a resource site to read science-based articles on well-being and happiness. The project is also about coaching, engaging, and sharing the authentic science of well-being and life-satisfaction, via social media, blogs, lectures, and workshops.
