State of Seema is the largest state in terms of both population and land in the Union of Zapra, a democratic republic. Aindi is the official language of Zapra as the majority of Zapri (as the citizens of Zapra are popularly known) speak Aindi; though in different states of Zapra, different languages are spoken and recognized as the first language of the state concerned. The majority of the population in the state of Seema speaks Ulugu, which is the mother tongue and belong to the Amish religion. In Seema, there is a linguistic minority community Zomili, originally from the state of Zomil, whose mother tongue is also known as Zomiland a religious minority community which speaks Kurdu. There are very few or no primary schools offering Zomilor Kurdu as medium of instruction at the primary level in the state of Seema and children of the two communities are forced to study in either public schools or private schools. The government run primary schools in Seema follow a one language system and children in the age group of 5-14 are taught in Ulugu. The private schools in Seema put much emphasis on learning English as well. Many other states in Zapra adopt a two language system in primary education and teach primary students two languages, one being English, which is widely recognized as language for international communications and expertise in English is considered as an asset in the global world and the second being the official language of the state. But in Seema, it is only later at the College level that the medium of instruction is bilingual and the students have the option to opt for either Ulugu or English as the medium of instruction. Mr. Ram Rahim Robert is a prominent figure in the state of Seema and a film Actor turned politician. In the year 2005, he established a school called Little Flower Convent (LFC), affiliated to CBSE, in Jumpa village near the city of Donden in the State of Seema. The purpose of establishing this school was (i) to provide an inclusive education to all sections of the society. In pursuance of the same, the school provided a 25% reservation to students from economically low income groups and disadvantaged backgrounds; and (ii) to give importance to Zomili and Kurdu languages to the students in their schooling. Students under this 25% reservation category get not only free tuition but also boarding and lodging facilities along with stationery and books free of cost. Coincidentally, 50% of the school’s management happens to be from a certain minority group and belongs to the Zomili linguistic minority in the State of Seema. The selection procedure for the 25% quota is based on the recommendation and referrals made by the local NGO’s and also referrals made by parents of children already admitted. Parents of the students approach LFC through the NGOs. LFC, upon verification of the application and pursuant to running background checks both psychological and physical on the children, admits them to their school, i.e., LFC. The Union of Zapra in order to provide importance of free and compulsory education for children between 6 and 14 has enacted Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 and came into effect from 1 April 2010. After coming in to force of the Act, the state of Seema has issued notices to the LFC and has asked LFC to strictly comply with the stipulations of the Act for starting its new academic sessions from 2013-2014 as the LFC admitted students in violation of the provisions of the Act. LFC Challenges the said notice. Note: The Constitution, other statutes and case laws are similar to the Union of India and the State of Andhra Pradesh as may be applicable.
