Khush Khabri: Double-Decker Bus turned into a classroom 

A double-decker bus belonging to the Kerala State Transport Corporation (KSTRC) is now a classroom and a place for recreation for the Government Lower Primary School students.

The two-tier classroom has been created out of one of two decrepit low-floor buses out of hundreds meant to be scrapped by the State-run transport body. The bus was donated to the school located within the Government Teachers Training Institute (TTI) campus at Manacaud.

The classroom on wheels has a TV, chairs with multi-coloured tables, an air-conditioner, benches, and shelves for books, but the steering wheel and the driver’s seat have been retained so that children can play as if they were driving the bus. The upper tier is designed for reading and recreation.

Good news: Spain’s New Bill on Sexual Consent

In a historic move, the Spanish parliament has approved a bill that broadens and codifies the definition of sexual consent in Spanish law. Earlier, the entire onus of proving a sexual assault was totally on survivors.

The bill defines consent as an explicit expression of a person’s will during a sexual act, stressing that silence or passivity does not mean giving consent. Earlier, to prove sexual assault, the survivors were required to prove that they suffered violence or intimidation or physically resisted during the act.

Have a happy June!
