First Lady of the United States had visited the Sarvodaya Co-ed Senior Secondary School in Delhi on February 25 to experience the Kejriwal government's brainchild "happiness class" which includes 45 minutes of the unique activity-based curriculum such as meditation and mental exercises.

Launched in July 2018, this innovative idea is a programme implemented by the government of the capital city. Students are encouraged to take part in many activities such as meditation, street plays, storytelling and others. The concept is aimed at reducing anxiety and stress among children.
