    First lady Melania Trump helps a student as she visits a language class at Chipala Primary School, in Lilongwe, Malawi, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018. Mrs. Trump is visiting Africa on her first big solo international trip, aiming to make child well-being the focus of a five-day, four-country tour.

    The happiness curriculum, started in July 2018, is a flagship programme of the Delhi government in the education sector, and seeks to help children relieve stress, meditate and openly speak out on issues that trouble them. Under the programme, students spend 45 minutes daily meditating, telling stories and sharing their experiences while a teacher oversees the process.

    “The Delhi government is keen on showing Melania Trump a few other programmes they have started, such as the entrepreneurship curriculum, but her visit is expected to last just an hour or so. She and her team have expressed a desire to witness a happiness class as it happens, so that is definitely on the cards,” a source was quoted by Indianexpress as saying.

    US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump will fly to Ahmedabad on 24 February where an event is scheduled to be held at the Motera cricket stadium that will also be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    Afterwards, they are to depart for Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and later proceed to Delhi.
