just in.... govt plannin 2 reserve 50% of seats in colleges like iit, iim n lotsa du colleges.... wonder where we r heading to... its newez tough, what wid ppl gtn a 90% failin to gt admissions in reputed colleges. guess if the govt goes ahead wid their plans, we'd all either hv 2 convert to sc/st/obc, or plainly luk outside india fr gud colleges given the fact that colleges like iits n iims might nt be wat they r at d moment... quite inevitable if they have 2 choose 45 percenters ovr 90 percenters... so much for the government's "strives fr excellence" in the field of education. hrd minister put the blame on manmohan singh, which if it is true is such a shame, as he is awez perceived 2 be sum1 above petty vote bank politics of caste, creed and colour. nice way of screwin ur image up in the eyes of youth tho... nice way of maskin ovr ur incapabilities to provide the backward classes a fair chance at education... n then bypassin them into a stream wich they might nt be able to handle... this is for those who solely depend on quotas etc n nt those meritorious students who exist in every strata of society. on the risk of soundin deranged/hypersensitive n far-fetched, this can lead to a serious employment problem later, with the degree holders being well incapable and thus ineffective, and the worthy candidates who were denied f their rights doing nothin bt resentin the government and maybe the scs n sts too. cuttin back to present, this issue might pose a serious threat to the autonomous and impartial nature of these deemed universities.... and until and unless the govt doesnt wnt outraged youth turnin against em, well maybe jus keep this decision on the backnurner n do wat would actually benefit the people of these categories... ensure they get a decent if nt d best education in schools, n leave the task f judging who deserves to be a part of d creme de la creme of indias colleges to the admn of these colleges only. is arjun singh listenin?

Well ... thats something very well put. Persoally i am quite of the opinion ... that sc's and st's are definately do need uplifment for sure .. but uplifment of this sort is not making them equal on the contrary making pople more divided. it is also making tthem take adavnatage of the situation and not woring hard. end result loser colleges with loser students. Well definately uplifment is necessary .. but other forms can be adopted .. like cutting out on fees.. more chances to give entrances,.... by bringing these people into colleges of high degree without them bing worthy is simply like hitting the axe ones own foot. If we have incompetent youth we can never expect india as a nation to rise inthe future and on the contray succumb to more discrimintaion among people .... thus just by giving more seats to the sc's and st's u are not uplifting them but telling them here just because u are lesser in population and were tortured now u can do whatever u want casue we are a free and emocratic nation and want u guys to work ... evn if u are not capable of it....

i am what i am said...

hi........i totally support u nd thnk its very wrng for the govt to just give away so many seats to the sc/st's............nd consider the future of india in anothr five yrs..........these sc/st ppl who r gonna graduate sry to say but will be quite looserish nd we are ruining r country's future. Also i realise education is imp but a gud education is only ment for those who actuallly deserve it..........and shud be based on merit.
This is so messed up..........i like the way the govt. is playin with r future's. i wsh tht we cud protest in some way coz at the end of the day its r future they r toying wth. Lets do somethng..............like write a letter to the prz or somethin..........we cant just sit arnd nd wach

I am not totally against reservaions..But iam against the lines that the pre requisites for reservations are based upon..I mean Caste is no scale by which u will be givin reservations.. If the leaders feel that re defining the scale on which the reservations are based would affect their vote bank then they might consider givin reservation in schools rather than in higher education or professional education.. I believe that a socially crumbled kid who has recieved proper elementary education is on all grounds par with a student who has studied in some metropolitan state..

There is also another solution.. a bit difficult and almost impossible i gotto say.. "Re-defining"..re-defining the basis for givin reservation..they should give reservations to those who are financially crumbled...
