Highlights of Reader’s Digest February 2016, issue: Happiness Begins with Humour Of Love and Money It’s February and while the world celebrates love (we do too), we also know it’s still the beginning of the year and we’re all still hanging on to our resolutions. It’s the best time to make a sound financial plan, rather than scrambling at the end of the year to put together investments. But since there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, our cover story lays down the basics and helps you build on these. But because money can’t buy everything, we have a heart-warming tale of what our loved ones really want from us. In our other special stories: Shafqat Amanat Ali on what he’d do if he ruled the world, an interview with Michael Caine, how to get lucky, and whether the new black money law really will work. Plus, a look into The Making of a Jihadist and why a healthy young man did what he did. There’s also something for us to sleep over: a special report on sleep, how we, in India, are not getting enough of it, and how we can get our full eight hours. Travel down Australia’s Great Ocean Road, and round it off with a story of a film-maker who has lived well beyond his years, with the support and love of his family. Yes, love does make the world go around. So don’t miss our Valentine’s Day special: To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This...
