Whatsoever resemblance to any living or whosoever dead is INTENSE-NULL

Everything is set RIGHT

Placed for decades under the Directive Principles of State Policy, it wooed the civil society. Not anymore. India reaches the historic milestone wherefrom every children of the age group 6-14 has the right to free and compulsory education. Education, beginning April 1 of this historic year, becomes a fundamental right although its absoluteness is yet to be determined. So far, only Article 17 and 24 of the Fundamental Rights are absolute in nature, having no reasonable restrictions whatsoever.

Concerning RTE, the government needs to clearly define the provisions. Compulsory is okay but free? I wish it is free only for the disadvantaged groups of the society so that their education is taken care of in a hassle-free and much advanced way. Anyway, the delight is so enormous that such questions are easily scrubbed out.

So, the massive task that lies ahead must be dealt on war-footing bringing together the social organizations, volunteering agencies and many other concerned departments like health, finance, public works, sports, women and child development and the most important of all, Panchayati Raj Institutions. The conventional system also needs to be changed so that this INCLUSIVITY does not wear out over the years. There should indeed be, as cited by Mr. Sibal, a stress-free and friendly learning environment. He and his team, only now, truly deserve a huge round of applause, speaking of which I once again like to remind about the faulty ‘New Clear Lie Ability Bill’.
