Every child does have a right to education. That is his or her birth right, inalienable right, whether you pass a Bill to make an Act or not. Of course, the Act makes it mandatory for the governments to ensure that children get education. A welcome move indeed, a bit too late though - coming after 63 years of Independence. But we have such an Act to protect child workers, and we know how much it really worked. We remember once more: 'No Nation is great or good, because Parliament enacts this or that, but because its men are great and good.' 'So, make men first.'
