Dharamshala, June 22: Deputy Chief Minster Manish Sisodia of the Aam Admi Party (AAP) government in Delhi announced the launch of ‘Happiness Curriculum’ in Delhi government schools which will be taught to students from the nursery to class VIII in the upcoming academic session.

While addressing a press conference at the Delhi Secretariat on Wednesday, Sisodia said “The ‘Happiness Curriculum’ is ready and it will be launched by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Dalai Lama on July 2”.

The final draft of the curriculum was approved at a review meeting chaired by Sisodia on Wednesday. He said that work was started on the curriculum from January this year by a team of 35-40 experts.

Delhi government had commissioned a team of experts, including schoolteachers for preparing a framework for the happiness curriculum.

According to the Deputy CM, the curriculum will include meditation, moral values and mental exercises and its core idea is to produce "sarvagun sampann" (versatile) "professionals and human beings who could serve the society with happiness”.

He added, “After ten years or more, these children will become professionals like doctors and engineers filled with happiness and serve the society”.

Mr. Sisodia also mentioned his visit to the Harvard University as a factor that gave rise to the formation of the “happiness” program.

Temporarily, officials at the government schools are concerned about the implementation of the idea. A government teacher told DNA, “It is an interesting concept but implementation will be the key to any result. We need to involve experts to handle the students' issues”.
