The song “Happy”, written, produced, and performed by American singer and producer Pharrell Williams, became a viral phenomenon earlier this year as countless tribute videos filmed around the world were uploaded online.

Better late than never, Sushmita Pakhrin of Lens Craft Production has made a version for Sikkim, a landlocked northeast Indian state located in the Himalayan mountains.

The video was uploaded to YouTube on August 28, 2014, and received accolades for the high quality production.

Ms. Pakhrin commented in an interview with online news site Sikkim Now:

We have tried to showcase the scenic beauty of Sikkim along with well-known and upcoming artists of the state.
