This is exactly whats going on in India in the name of reservations.. reverse discrimination.
A student with 90% score is denied his rightful seat in an educational institution just because there is another candidate who belongs to the politicians created class called OBC even though the OBC candidate has a much lower score in the entrance exams than the general merit student!! Isn’t this a crime on the general merit student? Isnt he been denied his rightful seat in the educational institution? The situation might even be so worse, thanks to the mindless government policies, the reserved candidate might be the son of a rich IAS officer (who himself might have become an IAS officer not based on merit but based on his caste!!), while the 90% score holder general merit student might be the son of a poor school teacher!!!!!
One of the greatest racial discriminations is being conducted in India in the name of reservations today… Where is the end to this?
Shouldn’t reservations if they are really needed be based on economic basis than on caste basis? Does poverty discrimate between OBC and upper caste?? Does one need a harward degree to understand this simple commonsense?
The government has failed miserably in its obligation to provide quality primary education to all the children of India. In an effort to pass the bucks and to fuel its vote bank politics now they want the private sector to provide reservations in the jobs!!! Can somebody please tell me if they have heard anything more insane than this ?? Companies run business and for the business to succeed they need best of the brains and best of the brains are evaluated based on competition and merits, not on reservations… Can a 40% scorer be asked to design a pentium chip at Intel?? Is there a bigger joke than this? Most reserved candidates do not complete their IIT courses because they are not able to cope up with the subject as they never learnt the basics in the lower classes and were selected to IIT simply based on reservation!! Wouldnt such reserved seats have proved their worth if the same seat was given to a merit student instead of being wasted like this?? Arent we losing more einsteins and abdul kalams in this process? Isn’t this a denial of his fundamental right for the merit based student???
Why is the government so hell bent on creating a second class knowledge society in this country? I am not against the upliftment of backward classes. I would be more happy to see all 100% seats being occupied by SC/ST/OBC not based on reservations but based on their own merit. That will mean a India poised to become a superpower. People belonging to the so called backward classes have to realise that the government does not want them to come up because of the fear of losing their vote banks and hence instead of providing quality primary education to students of these classes (and of course to all), it is sticking to cheap populistic but disastorous political moves like reservations. The government is determined to permanently label these classes as backward! What has the government done to provide quality primary education to children of these classes ( and of course to the poor in all classes upper or lower) in the past 60 years??
In our IT industry if a single project of 2 months fails, we have root cause analysis, lessons learnt documented and those who erred might even get fired. What do you think should be the punishment to these politicians for having failed to deliver their promises? Indira Gandhi’s grand son is still roaming and campaigning in the state of uttar pradesh for elections using the same slogan and its derivatives used by his grand mother ‘Garibi Hatao’ (Remove Poverty!!)
In another 50 years it will be the so called today’s upper class who will be feeling that they have been discriminated for a century and then the upper class will start a movement for providing reservations to them… Where is the end to this vicious cycle??
Can any sane person in the government explain me how come the number of castes in SC/ST/OBC list has increased n folds in the past 30 years while logically speaking should be decreasing?? Does it mean that government (especially the congress party) suddenly realised that due to its inefficient functioning more and more communities are becoming backward as time progressed??
Making it a law to provide quotas in private sector will lead to the following immediate negative effects in the country:
- Multinational companies want quality not quotas in the candidates and will leave India if forced to provide reservations
- China will naturally overtake India even in the IT sector in which India had its lead till today. India currently leads the world IT offshoring services thanks to its merit based talented middles class and thankfully for the government not interefering in the way the IT industry conducts its professional business. But not anymore, government wants to tell IT who it has to hire and fire!! Who knows the government might also create a law where no reserved candidates should be in the list when a company has to do a layoff!!
- More importantly, more and more frustrated brains will drain out of India to join NASA, IBM and Pentagon and our ISRO,HAL will continue to import spare parts for its satellites from US and european countries…
The government is saying to a General Merit based student with 90% score
‘Go to hell, you are a GM student’
The GM student will tell the government
‘You go to hell, I am off to US’
Coming days will decide who went where…
Atleast now we know what it really takes for India to be a superpower.. keep the politicians out of this entire business…
