BEO told to allot RTE  seats to four kids without 2nd lottery 23.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The High Court of Karnataka on Friday directed the Block Education Officer, Bengaluru South, to allot seats to four children to Class I under the Right to Education (RTE) quota to another neighbourhood school without insisting that they undergo the lottery again.

Justice L Narayanaswamy passed an order in a petition filed by four six-year-olds who were allotted seats under the RTE at New Millenium School, Cooke Town. The school later rejected their seats claiming that it is a linguistic minority institution and appealed before the high court. Minority institutions have an exemption under the RTE Act.
Third round of lottery

The Commissioner of Public Instruction submitted before the high court that they would conduct the third round of lottery for allotting seats under the RTE Act. The government had previously informed the court that it has closed the allotment of seats under RTE. The third round will be conducted following pressure from parents.

Two boys stand up for their favourite tree 22.6.2017
"Trees are home to small flora and fauna. They also have the right to live as much as they can and should not be axed for our right of way.'' This message from two boys has saved a 30-foot-tall fig tree from being axed near Bellandur lake. Parth Choudhary (9) and his brother Arjun Choudhary (7), residents of Euphoria Apartments next to Bellandur lake, have given a new lease of life to their favourite fig tree in their apartment complex. The roots of the tree were hindering the sewage line. "It all started around four months back, when the apartment association decided to improve the sewage line. It was found that the tree's roots were damaging the sewage line. The association members decided to uproot the tree. Parth and Arjun revolted when the contractors started chopping the branches. The boys' questions made us think and in one month, we found a solution. But we decided to implement it during monsoon and in the last two days, the tree was saved," said Prashanth Choudhary, their father. The children ...
