The subject has been brewing around for quite a while. Everyone with a tongue in his or her mouth has discussed it. I am talking about the wonderful brilliant idea of a set of amazingly bright politicians to reserve further quotas for the ‘underprivileged people’.
I am not against it. No way. I just love the thought of being treated by someone who got his/her qualification because his/her seat in the medical college was booked the day he/she was born.
I also don’t mind using software designed by an idiot with the brains of a termite but with a degree from a premiere university. No really, I do not. All software crash anyway.
But I will mind… oh hell yeah … punch-in-your-face mind … if someone ever suggests that my friend who knows more about her subject than anyone I know from her field, got her degrees because she belonged to a certain caste.
I will mind if someone sniggers at my engineering buddy and mentions he got his promotion because he was a you-know-who.
And I will most definitely mind the mentality this “quota-system” will create… that the so-called underprivileged people can only make it in life… thanks to what they are and not who they are.
It befuddles me completely … I mean, someone please tell me again, how is this reservation thing going to help anyone?
