The debate and the discussions have been done to death by now But I came across this brilliant piece of interview
May I add, I've just about fallen in love with Karan Thapar!!! Arjun Singh really NEEDed someone like him to do that!But know what, If he is as thickheaded to propose the whole reservations thingy, then he might probably not UNDERSTAND that he got screwed!!!
Everyday we (that would be either Sindhu and Me or Sudeep and Me) discuss the "Reservations" issue till our blood boils ,veins burst and head explodes. We have discussed every possible way of "getting rid" of these insane , despicable creatures (aka OUr beloved minishters) right from leaving them to starve in a parched desert , to making them stand in a line and shoooting every one of them( I am with Rang De Basanti on THIS issue!) , to kidnapping them and Threatening them to go on vacation to Hawaii forever (Believe ME, their doing NOTHING is akin to quite a bit of progress for our nation!)
I fail to understand how educated people , today's generation, can rally FOR reservations?? I heard one of the girls in this pro-quota rally saying " Forward Caste people have dominated us since Time Immemorial!"| How can someone who is educated , make such a biased and non-factual statement? Why bring in castes at all or as some idiot said "Forward castes have 73% reservation in this country!!!"
Somebodyyy Just Shoot Meee…
Have they become as myopic as the vote-hungry , money-crazy politicians?? How can they NOT see that reservations can only do harm? People should analyse WHY they are not able to compete on the same platform. If there werent enough schools , then building SChools is an answer. If there was no electricity and you could never study because of that, then Providing electricity is the answer. Reservations is merely a shortcut which is never going to take them forward in life.It was only a temporary stand suggested by the Mandal Commission some 20 years back, (infact Mr. V.P Singh ,another guy who I would LOVE to butcher, gave a totally different colour to the Mandal Commission in 1990) Reservations were meant to be "reduced" as the years went by and infrastructure at the primary levels were to be improved and there were many more "sensible" suggestions.But then what can you expect out of people who buy their votes and are all meant to be in Jail!
I have only one phrase which I keep repeating " Our country is Definitely going to the DAAAGS"
I got this awesome forward which I have to quote now
I think we should have job reservations in all the fields. I completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting this. Let's start the reservation with our cricket team. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced for a reserved player. The four hit by a reserved player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a reserved player should be counted as 8 runs. A reserved player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century. We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our reserved player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to a reserved player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal. Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, a reserved player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.
