"For Indians, it boils down to comfortable living conditions, robust health, good financial conditions, friends and social circle and to have a purpose in life. Hobbies and interests are important too," said Parijat Chakraborty, Country Service Line Leader, Public Affairs and Corporate Reputation, Ipsos India.
