Freedom of choice ?

Some days ago I had an interesting discussion with Ankush. I was of the opinion that people of older generation were less happy because they did not have much choices to recreate. Choices for me have represented freedom and consequently happiness. Choices generate a sense of freedom or empowerment over what is going to happen. It was a long standing thought process in my mind which was questioned that day.

Ankush had another theory. Having more choices bring more disharmony and restlessness according to him. Consider the choice of spending time with smartphone vis a vis sharing days events with wife, he said. Disharmony is guaranteed. Jokes apart I agreed to his point to some extent. Choices make you rue for chosen one over the other.
