Winning a heart for Valentine

the IndusNetwork eMagazine is turning 2 this month and we would like to take a moment to thank all the loyal readers and followers of this eMagazine. Thank you for keeping us closer to your heart! We are continuously growing and the credit goes to you for introducing us to your social network. As our anniversary special, we have introduced a new section - Tamil Songs Channel - to enable you to continuously stream all the selected videos on demand. We are confident you will enjoy this channel.

It is the time of the year when hearts beat faster than other days as they express their love for one another. As someone said, "Love is just a word until someone can come along and give it a meaning." But have you ever wondered how much does it cost to win a heart? Experts report that it could cost anywhere closer to $150,000 over a period of five years or 30,000 every year. It should not be a surprise if you know that Dating industry is a billion dollar industry. If you are single, it is time to sock up your savings!

Due to the stuttering economy, many reported that they will be spending less for this year's valentine. The average expenditure budgeted by many was 100 dollars. So if you had received a gift more than 100 dollars then you were above the national average.

Ironically, in spite of the economic gloom and doom, people across the world have reported that they are far more happier than four years ago. Indonesians, Indians and Mexicans top the list of happiest people on Ipsos survey. US stays in the middle band and Europe forms the end band on happiness. Also, the survey found that Married people are lot happier than Singles and people below age 35 are more happier than people who are above 35. One thing is very clear - money is not driving people's happiness!
