Congress following the footsteps of the British – Divide and Rule!!

Congress following the footsteps of the British – Divide and Rule!!

Doesnt seem unnatural though, Italians are close friends of the British no doubt. But this is limits if Sonia Gandhi, of Italian origin wants to stick to the age old principles of the British of Dividing India into castes and Ruling over us. And we as usual are fighting amongst ourselves as they would most love it. What else can one say that the government is so hell bent upon introducing the quotas instead of such a huge outcry from the educated citizens all across the nation. We may never have seen such a huge uprising of the nationals since Independence.

I was totally enthralled by an illustration made by an imminent personality from the IIMs at a debate on a news channel last night. His words were- " Suppose a child has polio. He has no way out but to use crutches to make his way around. He is dependent upon those crutches for the rest of his life. What the government must plan to do is to organise mass immunisation drives to eradicate polio from its roots. But instead, what the government has decided to do is to let polio exist and spread, let more and more people suffer from it, and that we will provide crutches to the people suffering. This is what has been happening with the reservation schemes in the country till date. Instead of trying to eradicate the caste system and their backwardness from the very roots, we are helping them to stay backward and be dependent on the reservation system for the rest of their miserable lives."

What an example. Mind blowing. Hats off to you sir!!

Here are some amazing statistics that were also uncovered in the same debate by imminent personalities like the Former Director of IIT Madras, MBA Genius Arindam Chaudhauri. Over 60% of the seats reserved for SC/ST/OBC in premiere institutes go vacant every year. This because of the fact that inspite of the reservation, the students of these communities are not clearing the minimum passing marks for entrance. What a shame that atleast over 45 seats in IIT Chennai go vacant every year in the reserved category. What if those seats could have been occupied by someone in the merit category. We are spoiling many lives, careers, futures and the country because of this.

Another amazing statistic that I never imagined could be true – The last census that was made to actually find out the number of OBCs/SCs/STs in the country was way back in 1931 – that too conducted by the British. Right now no one knows how many OBCs exist in India today. And on these figures, and depending on a constitutional grant that was given out in 1964, the government is deciding to establish reservations in 2006 for the next 25 years!! Well hats off to those who maintained that file since 1931. I had absolutely no comment when I came across this, but was just able to give a mocking laugh.

What a pathetic state we are in. When will we ever grow up from this caste/religion/race/colour battles among ourselves and realise that the human brain is much more powerful than all that. And all humans are bestowed with a brain that is equally capable, no SC/ST/OBC reservations on brains made by GOD!!

Your thoughts please..
