New Delhi, Jul 31: Praising Delhi government's 'Happiness Curriculum', Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday said if the country is a happy lot, the problem of litigation will be over.
Mr Gogoi who was addressing the Delhi government's first 'Happiness Education Conference', said,'I am very happy.This is a great day, the first anniversary of something big and unique. 1024 schools, 8 lakh students, 45 minutes every day, learning to be happy.'
"As far as the children are concerned, I think this is a brilliant idea. Catch them young when they are still open. Teach them to be happy. Teach them the values.As the chief justice of the country, I was thinking that if I have a happy lot of people in this country, my problem of litigation will be over. There will be no cases, because everybody will be happy. I've seriously thought about this, and I perhaps should share this with my colleagues, that we should perhaps have Happiness classes in our judicial academies also,' the CJI said.
The inaugural session was presided by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, were the guests of honour.
The conference organised at the Talkatora stadium marked the culmination of a fortnight-long 'Happiness Utsav' across all 1,024 schools of Delhi Government which commenced on July 16.
