Children of a lesser god – by Harish Khare
Here is another article written by Mr Harish Khare in the Hindu. In this artilcle again he tries to hoodwink the public by piggybacking SC/STs with OBCs. Mr Kharey this is getting really old.
Consider this golden excerpt.
Television crews have been despatched to find voices of "merit" that are aghast at the very idea that institutes of management, presumed bastion of merit and competition, are now sought to be pried open to admit children of the lesser gods. Captains of industry are on record as to how a few hundred seats in management schools will erode India's competitiveness in this age of globalisation.
Really ! Children of lesser gods ! Is he talking about OBCs or SC/STs ?
The children of lesser gods are fine thank you. Many of them own hundreds of acres of farms, attend the best schools in both India and abroad, have maximum political representation and clout. They also beat the children of greater god regularly in entrance exams.
After this assertion there is no point in reading the article further, because it is all emotional nonsense.
If children of lesser god have 80% of MLAs in assembly, belong to the richest community in the state, have maximum land holding in the form of rice fields, banana farms, coffee tea estates. If children of lesser god fill up top boarding schools in ooty, kodai, and also face no discrimination today or have faced in the past – heck we all want to be children of lesser god.
What do you expect from a junk rag communist paper ?
