The US first lady is likely to watch Delhi government’s innovative ‘happiness’ course

During the United States President Donald Trump’s maiden visit to India next week, First lady Melania Trump is likely to visit a Delhi government school in South Delhi.

“The school which the First Lady is likely to visit is the one school located in Nanakpura area,” said a person familiar with the matter.

Apart from taking various innovative steps in improving the education system, the Delhi government has also introduced happiness curriculum. The curriculum, which was introduced for the students from Nursery to Class 8, was later adopted by some of the private schools too.

US President Trump, and his wife Melania Trump, will spend around 36 hours in India, and visit Ahmedabad, Agra and New Delhi, where they will attend several events.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
