Melania Trump is set to join President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump-Kushner and Jared Kushner in a two-day visit in India. The First Lady of the United States is expected to join some events with the POTUS while in the second-most populous country in the world. However, Melania is said to venture solo to witness a ‘happiness class’ in South Delhi.

Reports have it that Melania will be spending an hour at a Delhi government school to witness a unique curriculum, per CNN. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is said to give the FLOTUS a school tour and orient her of the local government’s public education experiment. Moreover, Melania will also get a chance to observe how students in Indian public schools co-exist with each other.

Up to this writing, no concrete details of the school where Melania Trump is visiting have been made public due to security reasons. Despite this, numerous teaching staff across the Indian state’s government schools are thrilled to meet and greet Barron’s mom.

"We hope Melania will visit our school. The curriculum has gone through so much change and we would love to show the improvement it has brought in our students," one teacher said. "Attendance of our students is increasing. They are self-aware in their interactions now with family and teachers since special classes started," another educator added.

Meanwhile, Melania Trump, reportedly, formed a group of 10 women, who would assist her during the upcoming state visit, headed by a female Indian Police Service (IPS) officer. International Business Times, previously, reported that the former model is expected to meet the team, who underwent special training on how to communicate with the FLOTUS and was ordered to wear trousers and blazers, upon her arrival.

In the official statement released by the White House, it was revealed that President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi expect that the trip would further strengthen the strategic partnership of the United States and India. The visit will, also, highlight the “strong and enduring bonds” between the American and Indian citizens.

Aside from Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump-Kushner and Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump will, also, be accompanied by Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, NSA Robert C. O’Brien and White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
