So that proves that many people do think that we “need” reservations.

So…do we really need reservations? I’d say ‘yes’.

Some people are saying that there is no caste system, but then we have this:
http://blogs.reuters.com/criticaleye/200 8/05/16/a-horrible-day-in-haryana-and-a- challenge-to-indias-police/#comment-111

An honor killing based on caste and locality. And there are certainly other caste based crimes in India. Caste /is/ very similar to ethnicity, in that its largely an imaginary thing made up to discriminate against other people for.

It’s true there is no caste SYSTEM. There is no system, it’s all local , overwhelmingly countryside tensions. There are no ethnic issues anywhere else in the world , except India, 1.3 Billion is a lot of people. Main thing is people are the same race, so these differences are not very serious and have already faded away in Urban India. Racial discrimination in the west etc is a bigger issue due to the “eyeball” factor.

I don’t think reservation has helped and still we see people working as labourers. economic status based reservation might help. but anything will fail without strict enforcement. i have seen a lot of people becoming scheduled caste and tribes.

Only merit should determine the fate of thease. After 60 yaers, it is way past the time to move on. I belong to a small minority group. I want think the welfare of the Country is more important than that of a nay given group.

A poor student is the one who needs state support; he could be high caste or low caste. And once you have equipped him with education/training matcing his abilities, he is ready to be on his own in the job market.
This the simplest of points. But obviously, politicians have different, selfish priorities.

Isnt it too much stress on the nascent Indian IT sector to restrict jobs based on political constraints instead of practical considerations like merit, experience and benefit to the organization. Why not let the best person get the job as it is in the industrialized countries. People who support political arguments and want to tilt the dialogue in the direction of caste or region instead of practical factors are in fact enemies of the nation as they adulterate the process of good decision making.

Today’s India is roaring for money not culture or history, centuries of subjugation is venting out in form of money-hunger and its prevalant across all the stratas. So, make economy the only basis for quotas, change past. Or I suggest give the desired reservation to lower castes, and allow the poor upper castes to be part of it, select the poor upper clas students, and if they provide income certificates then they shud be considered on part. Its like punishing todays kids for their past life karma, bullshit..don’t devide the future generation, or India will be a fgramentated dream, gone on a wrong path…
