Dying Democracy? April 10, 2008

Posted by xk0der in : In My Opinion, Random Musings , trackback

I do not know what to make out of the ruling by Supreme Court (SC) of India with respect to the quota for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in “IITs, IIMs and other Central educational institutions” the ruling adds that the SC “excluded the creamy layer from the benefit”. Here is the full coverage of the verdict at rediff.com:


Who decides who belongs to the creamy layer of OBCs? How do they decide who belongs to the creamy layer? and why the hell do we need reservations based on castes/creed/religion/sects and the like?

Quoting from the article: “All judges favoured periodic revision on the implementation of the 27 percent quota.”, remember when the original constitution was drafted and the reservations were to last just for 10 years? What year is it now? 2008!

It is but clear, why after every five years the reservations policy is extended to yet another five year term. And every now and then new categories are added to the beneficiary list.

When will this vote politics end? Never!

What to do about it? Think beyond caste, think beyond they-me, think beyond their state-my region, Think beyond India, think Global, think Humanity!
