Mera Bharat Mahan. May 27, 2006

I don’t understand the Govt. It capitulates to the demands of terrorists and hijackers, especially when the daughter of a politician is at stake, releasing dangerous criminals, but it refuses to concede to the legitimate demands of medicos. If lives were involved in the IC-814 case, so are they now! I would hate to think how many people are slipping into critical conditions, and even dying because the doctors are locked in a stalemate with the government.
For crying out loud, the latest reservations are so obviously a political move, aimed more at securing electoral berths than at creating a more equal India. If they had been honestly attempting to do something for the future of India, I would understand their sticking by their decisions and convictions. But I don’t understand their refusal to budge significantly from their position, when LIVES of non-participants are at stake.

I DUN THINK THE DEMAND OF THE MEDICOS IS JUSTIFIABLE BUT ALL THE SAME WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT THE ONLY POSITIVE THAT SEEMED TO HAVE EMERGED IS THE GOVERNMENTS DECISON TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF SEATS BUT THEN AGAIN ONLY MEDICAL COLLEGES ARE BEING CONSIDERED ……

the medicos are asking for a commitee to review whether the previous such quotas has actually helped the OBCs. And today in the paper they mention that they will not stop at an increase in only medical seats; they want it across the board.

i too oppose the medico strike, coz patients CANNOT be left in the lurch, but it is also true that India only understands the danda. i dont know how the increase in seats will function, because i don’t know if the infrastructure will be sufficiently updated.

thedemand of the medicos ios not only a judicial commitee but also that the quotas be rolled back …..other than that what is even more disturbing is the rhetoric being used and the so called backward classes being subconcioucly called non-competent,lazy,over privelled etc etc …..

i also feel that there needs to be a smarter system rather than quotas …..something like the point system in jnu

I don’t know about the point system in JNU.

And weren’t the medicos demanding a roll-back of the LATEST quotas? The OBC quotas, not the SC ST ones?
I very well understand their concern, especially in the medical sector, for as it is the number of seats are very few. On top of that, now a handful of seats will be left available for the general category. Creating a new minority to uplift the old minority is pointless and as bad as not doing anything.
I know ours is a very caste based society, and caste needs to be addressed for the progress of the country as a whole, BUT unfortunately, I have seen around me plenty of people who do not belong to the general category(i’m talking about un-disadvantaged people, economically very comfortable) sit on their asses and not work hard because they know that they wont have a problem with education and then career promotions etc because they happen to be the right caste.

A commitee ought to be set up to investigate how many sc/st/obc people(those who actually need it) have till date utilised the quotas as opposed to how many unfairly make use of it.

And while we’re at it, why doesn’t the govt make quotas at the school level? there are many more schools, private and govt, than there are colleges; and schooling is the most basic requirement of people. Make the rich, private schools enforce quotas, for then the society would truly benefit.
That way we will need less quotas at graduation level, and more scholarships.

I wish the politicians could read these blogs and then make their policies .. Do they have any clue what they’re doing ??
I am against any kind of reservation other than reservation for the handicapped .

Thanks for leaving a coment 🙂
I think we should also have reservations for the economically backward- they dont stand on an equal footing so they need something.

Sad part is that even tho there is reservation for the handicapped the seats dont fill up coz the infrastructrue is so damn bad. No ramps, no proper toilets. we need to work on it a LOT.
