An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Reservations

This Reservation thing is really getting out of hand. I was just reading comments of Mr Murthy of Infosys, and he rightly said he supports reservation and quota for OBCs and Scheduled Castes, and he suggests we have reservations in our Cricket team and Olympic Team too. I mean why not? Why not have 50% OBCs/Scheduled Class players, and also have some 30% reservation for Muslims and Christians, as they are also in Minority in India!!
Really, why dont we have 50% reservation for OBCs/Scheduled Castes in our Parliament? Isn’t it the place where all this should start from? There should be a Nation wide protest to say all types of reservations are agreed to if the Government is ready to implement the same quota in our Parliament, and reserve seats for the backward classes. Let us see if these politicians are ready to take the actual responsibility of bringing up the underprivileged, and can they do it when it hurts them too?

    I agree with you!! Charity should begin at one’s own home!! So let the politicians start implementing reservations in the parliament itself!!

    For heaven’s sake – there was this provision for all political parties to field 30% women candidates and NO political party is even close to that!! Of course, it was a self-administered “GUIDELINE” – so there are no implications for not adhering to it.. which goes on to show how serious these political jokers are for “Equality”!!
