    Have been following your blog for quite some time now. I’m sure you have been told this by people earlier that your ability to cull out the relevant data and articles is impressive.

    Youth for Equality, Bangalore Chapter is starting a move to give articles related to the reservation issue in popular print media, so that the real face of reservation is exposed to a larger section of the society. Would you be interested in writing some articles in a form suitable for print media. We believe that’d go a long way in creating awareness, which is the dire need of the day.

    Please write back, if you are interested.

    Yes, I would like to do that.

    I am facing problems getting access to all these state reports. I plan to buy some books (which have excerpts from these reports).
    The publicly available data is not pretty, trust me! A large scale encroachment is happening right in front of our eyes in the name of social justice.

    Of course, I am talking only about OBCs and not about SC/STs.

    Would be a great idea if you could translate your blog /articles into hindi and tamil.

    Your analyses are excellent but to reach a wider audience you need to get this mirrored somehow – maybe ask any of your readers if you cannot do it yourself.

    Hi RC,

    I am trying to find out some detail about land acquisition by infosys (esp the price and whether it was on par with market rates).
    Will appreciate if you could help


  13. realitycheck said, on March 22, 2007 at 5:17 pm


    There was an explosive article in the Outlook about a year and half back (When Dharam was CM). I will check if I can find the hard copy. You can also try online.

    Just remember, 845 acres is larger than Central Park in Manhattan.

    Perhaps I missed this but would you have any comemnt on the recent NCAER report that appeared to suggest that Muslim economic backwardness may be a myth?

    Hi Reality check,

    Some of my works are posted on

    I was wondering if I could write in your worldpress.


  18. Sapr333 said, on June 14, 2007 at 6:05 am


    Are you the one who posts in Outlook?


  19. realitycheck said, on June 14, 2007 at 2:08 pm


    Sorry, thats not me.


    Sorry, I completely missed your comment in all the noise.

    You are welcome to write on this blog if you stay on the topics (quotas, naxalism, SEZs, IT and Tax holiday gimmicks, etc).

    Email me and I can create an account for you.

    Sorry for the late response.

  20. Muthukaruppan said, on December 17, 2007 at 3:31 pm

    I am from a ‘forward’ caste I DO believe that there ARE managerial and supervisory positions in corporate organizations which won’t be hurt by quota appointed people from other castes, the jobs being done quite responsibly and well, as much as by people from forward castes.

    I also do a bit of blogging on Society Related Issues but have been amazed by the analysis and writing skills of yours.

    Keep up the good work.

  22. Anand said, on December 20, 2009 at 11:40 am

    I have written an article on the alleged communal secular divide of Indian politics. It doesn’t contain baseless allegations nor its random rants. You can find that article here

    Would you mind adding it in your blog (if you find it worthy)


  23. Mihir Jha said, on December 31, 2009 at 6:36 am

    Although you make many valid points, here are a fee things to keep in mind:

    1. A cardinal principle of any negotiation (yes this is a classic negotiation exercise), is to have “anchor points” that are not necessarily the end points at which you hope to end a negotiation. You need to provide your opposition with some “wiggle room”. The draft bill provides an anchor point (untenable in your opinion), but the end goal will most likely be something not as extreme.

    2. If a LokPal (Corrupt or otherwise) gets on your back, you are free to approach the Supreme Court and the court is obligated to assess your complaint on its relative merits

    Dear RC,

    This comment need not be published. I wish to translate your recent post about Sanskrit in Tamil and publish it in the website (Its a tamil website for Sanskrit lovers). Please let me know your consent.


  27. Rahul Dewan said, on January 17, 2017 at 4:33 pm


    I’ve been trying to connect with you on your twitter handle for delivering a talk on the disastrous effects of RTE. Would you be willing? I run ‘Indic Talks’ where we invite speakers to speak on Dharmic topics to help spread such narratives. Could you drop me a twitter note or connect at my email ids.


  28. vinver19 said, on December 15, 2017 at 6:46 am

    I wanted to discuss an idea about CORE implementation with you. Can you please email me so that I can communicate on email?

  29. Arvind said, on April 2, 2018 at 2:09 pm

    I am Dr Arvind Agrawal and I came across your blog through your Twitter account.
    Like you even I am very concerned about the ground realities and practices in the education sector. Scenario is really bad and alarming and somehow we cannot have much hope from the government Think Tanks in this regard — all they can think about is the formal education; and the whole world today knows that the formal education system created in 18th century is, in fact, crumbling.
    I am creating a system based on social processes and with that we can be wit optimistic that the spirit of education will be preserved to some extent.
    If you need any help I will be most happy to do something.
    Arvind Agrawal
