In Pictures: Melania Trump visits ‘happiness class’ in India
The US first lady took in a project aimed at reducing children and young adults’ anxiety and stress.
US first lady Melania Trump has visited a “happiness class” at a government-run school in the Indian capital of New Delhi.
The secondary school’s curriculum dovetails with Mrs Trump’s Be Best initiative to teach children and young adults to be kind, avoid drugs and to take care of themselves.
Mrs Trump toured a reading room, spent time with kindergarten students and watched a yoga practice.
She sported a floral wreath around her neck as she stopped at a reading room, spent time with kindergarten students and watched a yoga practice.
Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, who oversees education, tweeted that the scheme’s early results had inspired confidence among local officials that the “happiness” classes are the “ultimate solution to all violence & hate in mindsets that we are facing worldwide.”
This continued the pomp and pageantry the Indian government had lavished on Donald Trump a day earlier, as he hailed a successful meeting with Indian PM Narendra Modi.
The US president described the trip as “unforgettable”, “extraordinary” and an expression of “love”.
