New Delhi : Washington State's Lt Governor Cyrus Habib on Thursday visited a Delhi government school with city's Education Minister Manish Sisodia to get a glimpse of the educational reforms carried out by the AAP government here.

At the school in Patparganj in east Delhi, Habib was briefed on the reforms in Delhi government schools and observed the Happiness Class along with Sisodia, a statement from the government said.

In the Happiness Class, students explained that they can now take their attention away from exam related and other stress and focus better on education.

During the interactions with students and teachers, Habib shared the importance of never giving up with his own story - how he lost his eyesight to cancer at age eight but went on to study at Oxford, contesting elections in the US and becoming the Lt. Governor.

A student asked him about the challenges he faced in politics as he could not see. He replied: "Politics is more about talking, and more importantly listening."
