Some more thoughts on a similar topic here.

http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=180118&KW=re servation

Would like to add to this as well. Mainly on two points,

Mr.P.Chidambaran's views from television yesterday mentioning yet again the oft repeated pro reservation stance of what about reservation of seats in the form of money?

This is the most ridiculous and silly counter people give to answer reservation on the basis of caste (social status in society).
If I have the money I will pay. If I dont have the money, I will take a loan, beg or borrow, hopefully not desperate enough to steal. In any of the above mentioned ways I am responsible or will be held responsible for my education and actions, and not the government.

Now for those that bribetheir way into school then the issue is -definitely not- forward caste or backward caste. It is corruption.

So Mr. Chidambaram should spend time thinking and disseminating to his esteemed colleagues what the difference is between corruption and reservation.

Then we can talk further. After all if I can take a loan then so can you, If I can study so can you. If I can go to school so can you. If any of these dont seem a possibility then make those happen. Ask for those tools. Dont just jump the gun.


The second point that is oft made.

"Most of the IITians and the such leave the country for greener pastures. They dont benefit their motherland."

This statement is really so myopic.
DOes working for Coke vs. working for Infosys really mean that you have deserted your country? How bizzare is that. Does one have to sit at home twiddling their thumbs, or writing dozens of tests to get that one opportunity in the most unrewarding and intellectually demeaning set up in a sickeningly corrupt environment in a government of India job to show they care?

Don't discount the attention of the global audience. The IITians and their like have put the Indian mind on the world map today. So for all those out there that cry themselves hoarse that so many IITians are not gruelling in those dust laden government offices with boxes and boxes of paper, sorry that they dont. They didnt have to do that to make a difference in their own lives, and in the lives of millions of others.

There are some that stay back and -lay their life down- like Satyajit Dubey. Who cares? Not a peep out of Mr. Arjun Singh then. It's all just bogus, the larger part of the electorate is OBC=> more votes=> Arjun Singh and his team have rejuvenated interest and sympathy in the upliftment and betterment in the lives of these improverished souls. The others can take a long walk.

It depends on who is better, not all quota doctors are bad. Dr.Mohammed Rela , one of the best surgeons in the world who lately was called in to operate on Pramod Mahajan took admission through quota. Also since I am from an OBC family, many of my brothes and sisters have taken admissions through OBC quota but they have successfully completed the course, and are doing very well in their fields , one is a M.D. In KEM Hospital, the best hospital in India and others are at high posts in the IT industry. Though I have never used the OBC tag to me and all the admissions I have taken are purely on the basis of merit.

Taking my view.....

Though I m highly educated.... I am an average intelligent student.... I have appeared for CAT once and got reasonably good marks but still I cant go to reasonably good institution.... through open class.... I never complained about it but now is the high time.... its not the question of our future but the future of next generation....

A revolution is called for and it wl happen........
