    And the worst part is..a large portion of the reservation will go to the well off OBCs, who are already filthy rich...These are the guys who control politics in India, and hence cant be alienated... the bright students belonging to the poorer Backward classes never get the opportunity to make it..

    What Govt. doesn’t seem to understand is in the private sector competition is fierce we are competing with the world unlike government institution which have no competition whatsoever.

    You can afford to put idiots in government institutions, who are they competing with? and if things are not upto standards (obviously they aren’t) due to incompetence who cares? There are no ramifications for incompetence in the govt. sector.

    What about the general public don’t they have any rights? A person who doesn’t belong to any backward cast has to get twice as much percentage to “try” to get in the same seat as the backward class. Is this fair?

    So now the more qualified person doesn’t get the seat he “rightfully” deserves because he doesn’t belong to a backward class.

    You are punishing the privileged ones because they are privileged?

    Reservations will be the demise of everything we achieved in the past decade. We are going back to the old congress days when rice was being smuggled, you had to wait 10 years to get a telephones line and when passports were assigned after your death.
    yeah the congress party has always been a sell out party in every way, except during the narshima rao term.

    i remember seeing on ndtv one obc guy pointing out that most of the business, media, education etc in the country is in forward caste hands. well thats like saying that most of india's cricket is in bombay's hands. the reason it is so, is that it was always bombay that has always produced the gavaskars, tendulkars and nari contractors. so if the obcs want a presence in the business sector, in the media, in education sector than they should produce an ambani or a pranoy roy or a bakul dholakia. one halfwit called kancha illiyah or somethign also pointed out that the guys in iits and other top institutes are not smart at all but its only their knowledge of english that makes them beat dalits and obcs!! so what was stopping kancha illiyah to get into iit, since he knew english well?

    i do not mind reservation per se' - its the way its done that sucks. they shoudl leave the top institutes like iims and iits alone and instead increase reservations in ALL colleges by about 10%. that way a lot more obc's will be benifitted, and at the same time prize schools wont be messed with. the ones abongstthe backward castes who are indeed smart can get into iits in any case or with the little quota that there currently is. increasing quota in iits and iims is like india's development - small pockets of posh offices and shopping malls like say a noida or gurgaon, while the rest of india is a dirty cess pit. token cosmetic changes dont help, in either examples. better would be a small (say 10%) increase in sc/obc quota in all colleges in india.

    Funny. but no so funny. I won't be surprised if any of below is voiced by one of our politician someday.

    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. We should have 10 percent reservation for Muslims. 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.
    We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib aktar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal.
    Also we should have reservation in Olimpics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters. There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let's recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country.. ) Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country..)
