Reality Check India

OBC quota judgement today

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on April 10, 2008

 

The bus has finally arrived at the fork in the road. 

SC upholds OBC quota, but excludes “creamy layer”

[UPDATE]

The conductor asked all passengers named Data and Reason to get down from the bus. The driver then took the left fork with the remaining passengers. The next bus stops on the left fork are

1. Hike Creamy Layer to arbitrary high limit – 1 Km

2. Private University Quota – 10 Km

3. Faculty caste quota for each department in IIT, IISC, IIM – 15 Km

4. Private Sector Quota – 20 Km

5. Caste wars among OBC jostling for quota share – 25 Km

6. Bengal wanting equal benefits as TN – 26 Km

 

Yes, we have been thrown out of the bus at the fork.  It is mid afternooon and the Indian sun is beating down,  but we will continue on foot on the right fork.

    I think this may mark the beginning of the mental partition of the next generation into democrat vs communist (population proportionality). History has shown innumerable times in many countries that this leads to a probable breakup of cohesion in society. Now that the last obstacle to reason has given way to political equations, it remains to be seen if a significant disaffected population decides to proceed onto the next logical step, physical separation. The seeds have been sown, and India as a single entity is doomed unfortunately.

    The Indian family planning office should be formally dismantled, since it is clear that in a mobocracy like India, only numbers matter. I doubt the boundaries of India will look the same as they do today in another 100 years. Oh well, India was a great concept while it lasted. This century belongs to China.

    RC,

    India as a political entity is a very recent creation.An important milestone was Mandal 1.We are proceeding in the same path.VP Singh must be grinning.Let us not forget that Arjun Singh is a thakur as well.

    The dominant landed castes do not seem to be well disposed towards ‘india’.I suppose our society has to go through this ‘amrit manthan’.It has been great to follow your campaign.

    In her patented cheap dravidian style,Jayanti Natarajan spoke about historical oppression,compensation,the first amendment and ‘social justice’-TN style in NDTV.These zombies seem to love this topic.There was a JNU loonie as well.

    Having experienced the effects of 69% reservation in TN, the collective hopes of the general category were pinned on the central government.

    True, the local states are run like fiefdoms, but the hope was always that the constitution of India and the supreme court would not let the people down. It upheld the indian spirit and could look past the overly petty, partisan politics to judge what was truly right and fair.

    Today I feel let down as a citizen. I am worried about how far this will go and what rights will be left to me and those after me.

    It’s a sad day indeed..

    This is a very good blog site. I have been back a couple of times during the last 7 days and want to join your rss feed using Google but can’t find out how to do it exactly. Would you know of any sort of tutorials?
