Reservation & Anti-Reservation – 2

For Part 1 of the series click here.

The protest against reservation still continues but the Goverment is going ahead with its proposal. But what is it that these guys actually want. Do they have a solution as to how OBC’s and SC’s and ST’s get higher education. What is it that should prevent these guys from education and who are we to prevent them.
If reservation is the way to get education for them, so be it. But is the benefit actually reaching out to them?
From what I have seen happen, though not everyone can be categorised.

The quota allocated has to be filled as much as possible. When the guy with lowest of lowest marks enters the college for higher education
1) Finds difficult to cope with the academics. His primary interest might be on other topics but hes now into this place where he is not able to understand what is being taught. His classmates dont have much time to spare for him since they have to study to clear the exams.
(a) What he ends up doing, steals question papers from faculty’s room.
(b) Bribes attendant with few bucks and add’s sheets of answers copied from textbook
(c) Tries to smuggle in papers with pre-written answers or important points

2) Faculty rarely explains in detail in class, one needs to refer to books in library. He is lazy and does not want to read more on the subject. The end result he fails in the subject.
3) His class mates talk something which is unable to comprehend, this makes him to develop an inferiority complex. He distances himself away from the class and leads to hatred for others.
4) He gets into a group of similar guys and spend time in smoking dope and other habits follow. He spoils himself.
5) He does not actually like studies. His primary interest is something else. But he is pushed to this world of competition which does not allow him/her to enhance his skills further in his area of interest. The end result he is not able to do anything worthwhile.
6) He drops out inbetween and gets into nefarious activities.

The other set forms the creamy layer among the reserved category. He is pushed to the General category to create additional seat in the category. This denies oppurtunity to another deserving candidate in General category. This guy in the creamy layer should also be allowed only within the reserved category.

There are survey’s which points to vacancy in the reserved section. There are also reports which mention how they are unable to come to terms with competition. While providing a candidate with admission under the reserved category there should be questions put forth like

1) Is he interested in continuing studies or is he forced to study
2) What is his primary interest. If he wants to do farming what benefit would he get by studying medicine or engineering. He should rather pursue studies on agricultural and ways to improve on that segment.
3) What does he plan to do after studies
4) What is his past academic record. He need not have scored 99% or 100% but something like say atleast 60%.

Having said all this, am not against reservation but it should reach to deserving candidates among the category.

  6. Sir

    I wish to bring to your attention that many backward castes, most backward caste listed in Tamil Nadu’s reserved caste category speak language other than Tamil. The list is seen Tamil Nadu website

    These includes countless communities where Telugu is spoken at home, also several Kannada speaking caste and Urdu Muslim communities who essentially speak Hindi.

    The chairman of Tamil Nadu’s minority commision is Pyarelal Jain appointed by Karunanidhi, a Hindi-speaking Jain.

    Tamil Brahmins despite being the “biggest scoundrels” according to Karunanidhi are still Tamils. How is that Karunanidhi is reaching out even to North Indians for votes by printing Hindi pamphlets in last election. Why is DMK hating Tamil Brahmins but at the sametime reaching out for North Indians residing in TN.

    Many CBSE schools in Tamil Nadu continue to impose Hindi (as compulsory subject), while Tamil can be conveniently skipped. This is sharp contrast to Karnataka where all schools including CBSE school which dont teach Kannada as compulsory subject will be de-recognized. Karunanidhi has come to power the 4th time now. Still the Hindi impositition in CBSE flourishes.

    Why are Tamil Nadu’s ports of entry i.e airports and ports staffed by people who speak Hindi and dont know Tamil?

    Why has Karunidhi failed on his promise to have mandatory Tamil annoucements on all Tamil Nadu flights.

    Recently there was court case against use of Tamil as official language in TN and also opposition. Many people who oppose this are also covered under Tamil Nadu reservation.

    Why are evils such as 2-tumbler system and seperate well system so prevelent in Southern TN where there is virtually no ‘scoundrel’ Brahmins left. It seems that amoung BC caste there is lot of descrimination and Dalits are still suffering while the bloody TN govt, Karunidhi etc are wantonly ignoring and supporting this.

    It all looks like that the reservation policy is the most convenient means by “Tamil” politicians to destroy Tamil, Tamil society for their personal gains.

    Tamil patriots would have done something great if they had reservation for one Tamil caste in TN rather than commercial certificates which many non-Tamil speaker can purchase.
