Actually every thing, every right, every facility is misused, in our country. Basically it was for the deserving people, but it has never reached to the right person. The creamy class among SC, ST, OBC, who are otherwise more rich and powerful, than any even General Category person, are taking its benefits. So it is just to keep an SC on our head always, and there is no use of it nor for the deserving SC, ST, OBC nor for any other. As they are giving the reservation to other cast, i feel in future they will give the reservation to the general to come ahead in their life. this matter is become a good point for the politition which they always used for the election. i just want to tell how many people are taking advantage of reservation. .When the law was passed, such people did not have enough facilities as the upper/rich class. So consideration was given to them. Thats the same reason why, in many educational institutions they have rural and urban quota. Rural areas doesn’t have ample facilities like libraries as they do in urban. But situation has changed now. So the reservations based on caste should be brought down. However reservation for physically challenged, women, and rural areas must remain.
Reservation was and is necessary but it is being misused by politicians for their selfish gains during election times. Since reservation has been there for a long time now, at least the ratio of reservation should be made lesser and lesser every year and eventually end it all together. But, I’m afraid this will never happen because of our unscrupulous politicians.
NO RESERVATION MUST BE THERE FOR ANY CAST .IT MUST BE BASED ON ECONOMIC CONDITIONOF INDIVIDUALS AND THEY MUST BE FINANCIALLY AIDED/HELPED TO GET EDUCATED AND AFTER EDUCATION MERRIT MUST BE THE ONLY CRIETAREA FOR JOBS AND PROOTIONS. I FULLY REJECT THE IDEA OF RESERVATIONS ON CAST BASIS BECAUSE WE CAN SEE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES AND MILLIONERS ARE GRABBING THE BENIFIT OF RESERVATIONS AND THE REAL PEOPLE IN NEED FAL TO GRAB THE OPPORTINITY.PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT RESERVATION WERE FAIR BUT NOW PEOPLE HAVE LOST MORAL VALUES AND EVERYONE WANT TO PROGRESS THROUGH SHORTEST ROUTE,I.E.BY HOOK OR CROOK . THIS HAS FAILED THE SLOE PURPOSE OF RESERVATION against I am completely against reservation on any basis. Reservation is a kind of protectionism which is given to the weak so that they can survive in the competition.
The consequence of this is, it hampers the competition. If some sort of protection is given to the incompetent people that will be unfair to the competent persons and this will also discourage them and will encourage the incompetent persons to remain incompetent. That is why any kind of reservation, may it be on the basis of cast or other, should not be given so that it will be justifiable to all. Furthermore, now a days the law has banned all the practices which were discriminating against people from lower cast. Discrimination for the lower cast has become thing of the past. I see reservation as a new way of discriminating against upper cast people by refraining those competent upper cast people in jobs, education or any other sector. Every one is just concerned about the reservation in education field. But the matter of fact is that when the reservation will be removed. It will simply hamper and deteriorate the condition of those unprivileged sects who are still barred from the benefits of reservation. (and the fact is that they still don’t know about any thing like reservation & it’s benefits).
If every one is thinking about equality then why a mass number of them are still unprivileged. (can say they not at all equal among commons). Those who are getting reservation are very small percentage. Compared to the mass numbers. Yet to be developed. Alright friends. Here I am want to share some of my thoughts regarding this matter. Surely reservation is not a good idea. For a democratic country we need and in fact we right to have euality. And this reservation surely ruins taleneted brain causing brain drain. But my question is after removing this reservation will we get equal respect in other aspects of life also. Will a brahmin guy marry a SC or even a ST girl? Obviously I am not talking about the love marrieges, I mean arranged marriage. In marriage why we still see caste? I have a personal experience regarding this fact during my sister’s marriage. Two to three proposals had been cancelled for this reason. If reservation has to be removed from education then first of all it should be removed from our mind and heart. People should be broad mined like other developed countries. Unless and untill it won’t be removed from our soul, reservation always remain as it is. favour
In this 21st century the upper caste In this 21st century the upper caste Hindu people may not practicing untouchability publically but their vicious minds still practices the untoucablity. Read any Newspaper you will see crimes happened against Dalits all over in India every day. These crimes happen publically but there are also a lot of cases where the partiality, discriminations and even crimes against Dalits occurred in an Institution or a Government Body. The Upper caste Hindus discriminates and hinders the path of Dalit students and employees in various ways even though they are scholars. In Government Bodies they change the policies of promotions when there is a term of promotion for a Dalit at higher posts. For the last 5000 years Dalits were not allowed to do any kind of job out of their casts, not allowed to educate , not even allowed to save money in any form and levy a lot of monstrous restrictions so that the Dalits will always serve ‘Sawarna’ hence the Dalits remained poorer than any other else in society and even today most of them are still poorer.
If you ask the BPL(Below poverty Line) people which caste they belong and 99% answer will be a Dalit Caste! Reservation is not meant for ‘Garibi Hataw Andolan’ but it serves as the opportunity in education and employment and bringing the backward class in the main streamline of the Nation and more important it secures the Dalit seats in Institutions and Government Bodies from Upper Casts Hindus otherwise they would not even gave a single seat to a Dalit even if he were a scholar and acquired more marks than upper casts. There is also a Women Reservation Bill in Parliament, does it mean that all the Women are Poor??? Why it is needed such kind of bill? Because women know that their representation will be suppressed as usual hence this bill is for Women’s emancipation. Thus the Reservation for women is social based but the Reservation for DalitHindu people may not practicing untouchability publically but their vicious minds still practices the untoucablity.
RESERVATION MUST BE REMOVED AND IF PEOPLE ARE ARE FINANCIALLY POOR PROVIDE FREE EDUCATION AND LODGING BOARDING FACILITIES TO SUCH PEOPLE WITHOUT LOOKING INTO CAST THATS WHAT IS REQUIRED TODAY. NOW THIS A TOOL FOR POLITICS AND POLITICIANS ARE UTALISING THIS TOOL TO GET POWER
Reservation – why, its achievement and its failure to deliver Well before we slam the politicians and all let’s look in to the past and observe why was the reservations done in the first place and its present impact. In the past(before independence) its true that the higher classes enjoyed more benefits – I mean what all the titles like Rai Bahadur, and etc were mean tot create a social unrest which was utilised to its best by the British. It seems that to reverse things a bit and also appease the SC/ST s reservations were made. Moreover the census of 1932 too showed that the SC/ST s and OBCs were larger in numbers. So it can be said that for general appeasement of masses it was also a political step by the Country makers at that time. Moreover with the proximity to USSR at that time the word “equality” may have sounded different at that time. Reservations were made not only in castes but also between states at lets keep J & K out of this since it had its own problems to deal with. If we look into most of the Government PSUs made after independence we would observe that they intentionally kept Maharashtra and West Bengal out of it purview since they were the most developed states during in and around independence. Former being the seat of the commercial capital and the later being the seat of the country’s capital in the past.
Rather New Delhi being the capital of India only for 96 years whereas Calcutta was the capital from 1772 to 1911 – 139 years.Now initially there was a time frame for implementing the “social upliftment” – the term coined by all those pro-reservation politicians (may be that includes everyone except Sidhu pajji) now. After that time frame got over it was found that they still lag behind so it was increased and more time was given but it reached its peak with the “Mandal commission”. Now after 60 years of independence if “social upliftment” has not been achieved then it clearly indicates the process thus chosen was wrong. Reservation always meant to deny the deserving from the pie and give it to some who doesn’t deserve it. Frankly this whole drama is appeasing the masses but there is a flip side of it. It’s this that General Category class is still ahead. It meant that due to competitions for fewer seats the generals are getting better day by day. And they are still ahead despite of all the reservations against merit.
Who is actually benefiting, are the labour class of SC/ST s benefiting? NO!!! The service class is biggest and perhaps the only benefactor. The people whom we meet everybody in our offices, schools, parks, restaurants belonging to this class are “THE” biggest benefactor. Reservation in my opinion should be made for every one who heralds from a lower economic status for one-time for either govt. jobs or govt. educational institution. Once availed it cannot be used for the next 3 generations and that too after calculating the economic status. This would ensure that it comes to an end one day.There is another point I would like to make is why did politicians suddenly warmed up for reservations in premier institutions and private firms.
Well, during Mandal commission, our present PM Dr. Manmohan Singh did introduce something called “Liberalisation”. Credit to him for having such a long-sighted concept, slowly it became apparent in the late nineties early millennium that there aren’t sufficient jobs in the government sector and most of them were going after private firms – that meant that reservation in government sector is not that valuable any more. So this is the only way out. But kudos to Private firms and IIMs, IITs and not forget the medical fraternity who has the biggest influence in the social setup who stood up against this “social menace”. But above all the Supreme Court who proved time and again that it would not be the part of cheap politics.
Like a coin had two sides, reservation had its own advantages and disadvantages. For example people in the villages, because of the reservation we can see them in high positions, as they came from low level they know the pain and they may work hard for the development of our country, also in India we had a disease of “caste”, since reservation is present& since they are getting opportunity people who are down trodden can proudly stand on their feet. Because of reservation many talented person get wiped away from their dream jobs, colleges as a result we are loosing gems this is leading to brain drain, which leads to drastic fall down of our growth. Other countries by using our brains they are heading ahead. So ultimately reservation as well as opportunities should be provided on merit basis.
