Answer 1: The Prince was happy indeed. Being a prince he lead a luxurious life and got everything or more on just a little command. He was always kept safely away from the misery and the harsh reality of life through a high boundary wall. He was happy indeed and was always so. He remain in his happy world where sorrow was not allowed to enter. He never got a chance to see the misery and the suffering of the poor and unprivileged people on the other side of the boundary. He was quite happy in his own way as he had never felt or experienced either physical or mental pain and sorrow of real world. He never had to cry from being unprivileged or been ever hungry. One cannot be deplored for being born into happiness as on cannot choose its destiny rather its destiny chooses who will be privileged and who will be not.
