A two-week-long festival to commemorate one year of the Delhi government’s flagship happiness curriculum began Tuesday with activities across all Delhi government schools. The happiness curriculum was launched in 1,000-plus schools on July 2 last year. It has since become one of the government’s most publicised education initiatives. Education Minister Manish Sisodia said the aim of the ‘Happiness Utsav’ is to help articulate benefits of theprogramme better. “Many people feel good things are happening through these classes. The most articulate ones will share their thoughts at the zonal and district levels. On July 31, there will be a finale at Talkatora Stadium, in which these thoughts will be shared,” he said. Sisodia said invitations to the festival have been sent out to education ministers of every state: “We have already received confirmation that a Japanese delegation will be attending the event”.
