Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi today gave a new solution to reduce the burden of litigation on the country's courts: happiness classes.
'If we can teach our youth to be happy and content, there will be reduction in litigation,' he said on Wednesday and mooted the idea for running happiness classes in judicial academies.
Gogoi was speaking at an event held in New Delhi to celebrate the first anniversary of the introduction of happiness classes in schools run by the Delhi government. 'People are so unhappy that there are huge number of litigation pending which go on for years leaving people further unhappy. If we can teach our youth to be happy and content, there will be reduction in litigation,' he said.
'It was a brilliant concept to have happiness classes. We can explore the same in our judicial academies as well,' he said.
The event, which was held at Talkatora stadium, marks the culmination of the 15-day Happiness Utsav being celebrated in Delhi government-run schools on completion of a year of the happiness curriculum.
