YEAR 2030

A year of revolutions!! The marginalized General category out on streets protesting against the system for “outcasting” them and setting the bar higher for them to gain entrance into the educational institutions spanning from kinder garden to college and from peons to CEOs on professional front.

--Political Game
Assuring people of taking up the matter in both the Houses and setting up a commission taking the number of commissions to 1,00,000 (to be precise).

--Vote bank Mantra
“If I come to power”, I promise that my party will pass a bill for the reservation of the“Non-creamy” layer in the General category with immediate effect.

So, is this the solution? “Setting Quotas within Quotas”.

My! My! I have been wondering that why for the past numerous years India has been a “DEVELOPING NATION” and not a “DEVELOPED ONE”. And the answer has been in front of us all along and we didn’t realize! You tell me that in a nation where people are fighting to take a bite in the pie of Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward categories and Economically Weaker Sections, then can it progress?? Can it progress when people are hell-bent to be a part of “the so-called weaker sections” in order to get better opportunities, progress and may be an edge over many of their perseverant “non-weaker” counterparts? I am not against reservations but Yes! I am pertinently in favour of reservations only for those who truly “Need” and not “Want” reservations.

If your thoughts are not in resonance with mine, then pause for a minute and think about the future of that poor child sitting in shabby clothes who might enter (if he ever does) a school as a janitor. Think about the neighbor who is burning the mid-night oil to get into his dream institute while you are flipping through the TV channels in cozy blankets just because you have to score only 50% for that institute as you were “privileged” enough to be born in a family with “OBC Certificate”!! You say it’s “Birth Right”, I say it’s “Shame” if you don’t deserve that in actuality.

“Need” and “want” are really strong words. If India as a nation wants to develop and we as people want to progress on the path of success, equality and harmony, then I strongly feel that the whole concept of “Reservation” should and must revolve around these two words only. Otherwise, I think in the following years, when different parts of the globe would be boasting about their high GDP’s, literacy rates and technological advancements, Indian government would be busy distributing reservation certificates to each of its citizens. PITY!!!!! 

If we don't find a panacea to this chronic problem, then I think that the Gods of this religion fanatic nation would have to consider allowing the germinal babies to choose "privileged" families for an unshakable future.

  1. This is a very divisive topic. The initial thought might have been right coz all said and done, the lower castes have suffered for a long time. However, all systems are prone to misuse in India and this has been no different.
    I feel reservations should be given to economically weaker sections irrespective of caste. It should also be limited to 1-2 members of such families and leakages should be prevented.
