Need of positive psychology in Indian Hospitals

Hospitals of India are more or less gloomy places where patients are not required to play and be merry. Facilities like carom, table tennis, amphitheaters etc can create an aura of positivity among the patients. There can be a separate department for "Patient Happiness" in large hospitals who can afford to hire a team. It is like nurturing people from the same planet where we live, eat and breathe. It is also a great way of attracting researchers in the area of positive psychology in its clinical applications. The field as far as clinical applications are concerned, is still primitive in India but has a large scope, considering the fact that even spiritual processes are well defined in the country.
