Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Friday, said the Happiness Curriculum aims to make children happier, recognise their potential and become better humans.
Modern education should cater to the needs of every child, Kejriwal said while presiding over the closing ceremony of the Delhi Government’s Happiness Utsav 2022 here.
“We designed our courses by keeping these three things in mind. One of those courses was the Happiness Curriculum. We wanted to ensure that every student becomes a good human being. This course has transformed thousands of lives by now,” He said.
Terming peace of mind elementary for an individual to be a good human being, the chief minister said the purpose of the course is to keep the children happy and peaceful. “We also believe that God has given a unique talent to every individual. Some people are able to identify that and some people cannot identify that. Every individual who has taken birth on this planet has a purpose in life. Meditation in Happiness classes helps the children in identifying their talent,” he averred.
He claimed that his government spent Rs 90,000 crore on the education system in the last seven years. He called it an investment, an expense.
