Heavy showers in Karnataka are causing floods, throwing life out of gear, but despite the many challenges children in different parts of the state are motivated to go to school.

A group of 10 high school girl students taught a lesson to the staff of a government bus, which failed to arrive on time on a day it was raining heavily. While the girls decided to walk the distance to their home, the bus caught up with them when 2 km of their journey was still pending.

Students of Yadaga government high school in Kalburgi district, the girls commute on a KKRTC bus daily. After school, they travel to Bibballi that is 8 km away. For this, they take a bus that arrives between 4.30 pm and 5 pm.

But, on July 8, the group was waiting to go home but the bus did not arrive till 6 pm. It was raining heavily, but the girls decided to walk home as there was no other transport available and it was getting dark.

The students set out on foot and walked till Kachur for 6 km but saw the bus coming towards them when the final 2 km of the journey was left. Furious by then, the girls stopped the bus in Kachur and started protesting. They demanded that KKRTC officials must address their woes or they will not let the bus move.

“We are facing many problems because of the bus staff who never keep up time. Many days, we miss the first two classes as the bus is late. Now, if we reach home so late, we are scolded by our parents. Many of us fear losing out on our education as our families are worried about our safety,” one of the students said.
