Passage of child labour amendment bill raises activists' hackles 30.7.2016 deccanherald.com
Child rights activists have expressed concern over the repercussions of the passing of the contentious Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill, 2016. The Bill was passed by Parliament recently, despite stiff resistance from the Opposition and a section of the BJP members. The Bill allows children below 14 years of age to work in family-run enterprises, besides reducing the number of banned professions for adolescents. Kripa Amar Alva, chairperson of the Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (KSCPCR), said the committee had sent a booklet, opposing the draft of the Bill several months ago, to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and to all sitting members of Parliament from Karnataka. "Passing a bill like this has taken our country back by almost 50 years. This is contrary to the Right to Education Act, which mandates free and compulsory education," Alva said. She said that the number of child labourers was hardly coming down. "There is a provision for children to work in ...

Karnataka shuts down for Mahadayi 30.7.2016 deccanherald.com
The dawn to dusk Karnataka bandh call given by pro-Kannada organisations to protest against the Mahadayi Water Disputes Tribunal order evoked mixed response across the state. The bandh was by and large peaceful with stray incidents of violence and stone pelting being reported from some parts of the state. The bandh was total in Dharwad, Gadag and Belagavi, the districts which were to benefit from the Kalasa Banduri drinking water project for which the state had sought permission to utilise 7.56 tmcft water from the Mahadayi river. The state's plea was rejected by the Tribunal, resulting in public anger.

Schools and colleges remained closed. Buses of state road transport corporations kept off the roads as a precautionary measure. Private ...

With the forest trees cut,/ the lake lies naked and lost/ in the bare hills. — A haiku poem by Richard Wright. A child prodigy, Senaka Senanayake reportedly created large paintings on his own when he was just six. Before he entered his teens, he already had solo shows not only in the city of his birth, Colombo, but also in New York and other places.

His paintings can be seen hanging, among others, at the UN building in New York; the White House in Washington DC; the National Panasonic Headquarters, Osaka; and the Berlin State Museum.
