Amir I'm big fan of you, i liked all ur Satyamave Jayate Episodes but i didnt like the last episode 'UNTOUCHABILITY'. what you shown in last episode that is not real, you should also discuss about the Reservation and you should try to "STOP RESERVATION". Many Brilliant Student having much more talent than other students cant get admissions in colleges just because of RESERVATION. This is a curse to general category. Now condition is this SC/ST caste People are on respectable posts in various Departments and there is no way to general category to achieve a good job or take admission in good colleges or universities. Reservation should be on financial condition basis not on caste basis, you should also discuss on this topic.
Till the time one single person who believe in castism is alive, reservation will be alive. Reservation isgiven to take them up so that they will be able to stand with us. Some have came up and many have to come up. Castism is the base of reservation not vice versa. If reservation will be removed no any reservation person is going to get the respect of brahmin. what is there mistake, why they are tagged with this low caste. They need to be financially and socially more strong. That's why reservation is givento them. Why everyone is jealous of their facilities. If you will get their facilities are you ready to acceptthe tag of low caste on you. No sister it is not possible. You should have seen the face of boy who wasskipping his lunch because of discrimination. It is very bad to behave like this. Educated people aremaintaining castism at the place of eating food also. What is this nonsense. I was shocked to see this.As Dharmadhikari Sir said people who believe in castism have to die fast. till such human beings are alive who believe in castism, Reservation has the reason to be in the system. How could we expect fromthe mind to score in our equality.where our mind is full with passion and their mind is thinking why theyare called low caste, what is their mistake. With such mindset noone can score good marks. Because getting birth in any family is not in baby's hand.So, if punishment of insult anybody is receiving then hecannot perform best like us. We need to study more.So, we are getting angry. If we get ill treatmentdue to our birth and if anybody will treat us as we are low. Then we cannot concentrate in appropriateway.Our half mind will search answers for why we are called as low caste people. I wish people who believe in castism should get next birth in such dirty places which Aamir has shown on tv.
My Name is Dalit,Its not the matter of Reddy's or any other higher caste or lower caste.Aamir khan is also high caste man. Believing and maintaining caste differncesis just a disease in human mind which is not getting cured from last 65 yrs and people are saying reservation is the reason for its existence which isincorrect. All are human beings, no one is high and low. goodness shouldwin in everycase and that is only good for coming generation when we willbe no more.Fighting has no outcome as all are one only.First respect andacceptance is important of every individual after that we can ask for removalof reservation from the system.
Reddys in Andhra come under forward cast na? so Y U R hitting khuladi on ur own leg dear?
i am with u mam..."Stop Reservation Gain Dignity"...
You mean as reservation will be removed from the system. Brahmins and reservation peoplewill be treated with same respect ? Then why discrimination was present before reservation came into existence.
Dear I think topic was UNTOUCHABILITY forget reservation my question for you guy is" Have you ever dare to eat your lunch or dinner with your cleaner.sweeper,or your maid (imagine they clean themself) ? I am in DUBAI I am a doctor I should not tell that I am RAJPUT but may be ottherwise you will take my comment otherway. You know when I was in India no lower job perso like above dare to sit with me when I was eating or doing something but I was normal . netural for me that time and I never notice it but when I came here You want belive but I am eating with them because we have common room for our food in our hospital no discrimmination what ever you are! and I am sure your are from city so spend some vacation in your nearby village and see the situation. Really I am feeling happy here and when ever I am visiting india and our maid is sitting in floor I am feeling very auckward even my wife is feeling same so may be your point is right for reservation but I think you are changing topic!
The so called "Upper Caste" has long back extended their hand for the Equality & Dignity. Now its time for the so called BCs to stand up for themselves and say NO 2 RESERVATIONS. Otherwise they would end up using these crutches for another 600 years and still be called BACKWARD CLASS.
please stop identiy by caste, it only by nationality....As Indian.
Before demanding to STOP reservation system, we should demand to stop Untochablity from the society in practical.
LALWANI JI. I think NATIONAL LEVEL EXAMS must be held. But still I say that Lower castes must be given free education and good respect from society. They have been torchered for years so we all must help upliftment
THIS IS REPLY TO JAY! Yes I have eaten and shared my meals with lower caste people. My room mate was a what people call BHANGI and we ate our dinner in same plate because we were good friends.
TRUE SPEAKING I M STUDENT I D'NT KNEW ABOUT CASTES AND SO ON UNTILL I WAS IN 10Th ,BECAUSE WE WERE TOLD ABOUT INDIAN CONSTITUTION BIENG SAME FOR ALL.....THEN IN 12TH WHY WE WERE ASKED ABOUT OUR CASTE??????????? TILL 10TH I HAD A LOT OF FRIENDS....AFTER 12TH MANY LESS BECAUSE MOST OF MY FRIENDS INSPITE OF GETTING LESS MARKS THAN ME(EVEN THEY REACHER THAN ME) ARE SELECTED FOR MBBS AND M NOT...!!!!!!!!!! IS MY FAULT IS THAT I BELONG TO A BRAHMIN FAMILY WHO IS NOT RICH..CANT AFFORD INSTITUES LIKE AAKASH AND ALLEN AND EVEN PRIVATE MEDICAL INSTITUTES....can only afford governmental institution...in every institution there is 50% on the basis of caste....even in colleges on 10+2 level.my di cant apply for computer research centre because every seat is reserved.she is an engineer wanted to do research in field f computer.FOR "AMIR KHAN":SINCE U R RICH....U DONT UNDERSTAND AND U CAN NEVER . IN MY VILLAGE MANY GUYS LEFT STUDY BECAUSE THEY EVEN CANT AFFORD GOVT COLLEGES PROVIDING 10+2 because for them there is no priority...and for other caste(not descriminating rich or poor) there is everything...
IN INDIA ONLY TWO BACKGROUNDS OF P'PL EXIST RICH AND POOR.........THINKING SHOULD ROLLED DOWN IN THAT DIRECTION... AMIR IN UR SHOW NO EXAMLE WERE FROM "CITY" AND NO EXAMPLE WERE OF "RICH"...WHY????
How many rich SC/ST people you saw in your 12th standard. If they are notusing reservation will they be called as Brahmin. No, even though they become engineeror doctor first they will be called as SC/ST and then doctor engineer. You saidyou are brahmin, then ask to any Brahmin of any temple is it possible for himto give respect of higher caste SC/ST person if he is financially stable. Brahmins only parted SC/ST people from our high caste, So ask him to take them back.Somepeople of SC/ST has got the respect and dignity by their money and position.They don't use reservation. And Brahmins have got full 100% reservation till 3000yrs.Then also why Brahmin is poor. Fees is high now not before. And no one hasstopped or humiliated brahmin from going school. Then why brahmin is poor. Brahmins need to reconstruct all the caste by financial position. So, brahmins who are poor after enjoying 3000 yrs of 100% reservation will come in lowest categoryto avail reservation. And financially stable SC/ST will come in higher caste. i hopeyou will not have any problem with this. Because you also don't believe in castism.
These people (who call themselves Backwards) would never understand your point of view. They just think that being from the Upper Caste we are against Caste Reservations. As U have rightly pointed out, Reservations should be based on talent and financial condition. Give FREE admissions/tutions/books etc. to a really deserving talented student from any Caste. No one would have any issues. But offering admissions at 50% marks is an insult to the entire Education System. Likewise, giving discount in fees to the students from strong financial backgrounds is also a cruel joke on the face of the talented poor ones.
I sincerely wish, our people were really rational and sensible enough to foresee the vices of the contemporary Caste system by way of RESERVATIONS.
Aamir is against the ill treatment. Why that 10yr old kid is skipping his lunch.What you will doif you are at his place. What is the reason for making him to sit separate. Why different dresscode for reservation people. Why they cannot take water by themselves. This is the issue.If you have to wear different dress code and if you will get ill treatment like putting lassi from up distance. How you will feel. And how much you will study with such mind set. This Aamiris trying to show and you are talking about reservation. Reservation is given so that each andevery reservation person will come and stand with us in equality. Anyhow we got full 100% reservation from last 3000 yrs. Thats why we are rich and our looks are also rich. Now theygot just for 65yrs and you are showing anger. Be calm and look at the in humanism.They arefacing more troubles and you are
Does our social system has accepted financially stable backward families to be the part ofour society or family. No, even if girl and boy is good in all aspects our society doesn't accept intercaste marriages with backward people. Even though they are standing in equalitywith us. reason behind this is discrimination.And Aamir is against discrimination.If we get special respect for getting birth in high caste then we feel like we are blessed.That time we never thinkthat when these backward people will get that feel.If they will get favour in fees then we areangry.It means we shud get everythg.
Dear Ashish, Kaushikikrishna, Lalwani Ji,
I would like to contradict here. Lalwani ji is saying Reservation is snatching there right to go to avail better education and jobs. Answer one thing do you think we have enough jobs/school/colleges to accomodate all the deserving population in the country. Even if reservation is removed you will still not get watever you are expecting beacuse of LACK OF RESOURES and POLICIES OF GOVERNMENT.Now one more thing as Mr. KAUSHIKIKRISHNA was talking about, there is also a discimination of rich and poor. Rich can buy there MBBS/Engineering seats by paying hefty money. But no andolan, dharna or social group has been formed against that. In medical profession donation is very very common. And believe me when people become from this route a patient has to more scared then if an SC/ST is becoming one.Ashish Bhai, If discimination is on the basis of caste then why not reservation on the basis of caste. We should remove using all our surnames and bring equality in the society. But being from higher caste is a matter of pscychological advantage and vice-versa.
Caste Discrimination is not about richness or being poor, its about humuliation, killing self respect and self confidence (MOST IMPORTANT FOR A HUMAN BEING TO BE HUMAN). As even Mr. STALIN said in the show that dont want money from shit picking business. An IAS is discriminated even after becoming an IAS.A poor people can work hard and become rich but a humiliated person will wont even attempt due to the fear of humiliation. Its not easy to fight it when everyone powerful around you is causing that humiliation. Please understand the problem is deep and not on the superficial level.One more thing. Caste is not only the individual identity but the identity of the group. In this caste structure, so called Upper caste were kept on the top levels of hiearchy. hence the situation now is that in upoper caste people are occupying every top position (Barring Few) in all domains including Business, Media, Teaching, Politics, Dotors and what not. Kindly observe the surnames of the poeple on the high posts and you will understand what i am saying. It doesnt mean that low caste people are not smart enough to reach there but there were not enough opportunities available to them or made available by the higher caste (bacause the power was in there hands)
There is lot to say but this stage is not enough to debate i guess.Shoot for any clarifications.Cheers!
RESERVATION IS JUST TILL THE TIME EVERYONE IS USING THERE SURNAMES AND EXPRESSING THERE CASTE IN THE SOCIETY. REMOVE YOUR CASTE AND ABOLISH RESERVATION.
Can you give right for Poojari in your hindu temple to Shudras ....or toher than brahmin can you give right to do Havan pooja in your house to Shudras.... Can you accept husband for your sister or daughter belongs from SC ST .... You r the people that are really backwards.... by upper caste because yr thinking is lower and dirty.
I govt should take National Level Test for giving scholarships.. It will be better. I have seen in PET that sc/st/obc of zero marks got good colleges and even zero marks gained by general got college. Now think of the future of INDIA. zero marks gaining engg. who will employ them?
Jai ho Rekhaji, jai ho! Good thought. Aamir to apna political platfarm bana raha hai, chhodiye. Bhulgayi, Aamir ne film LAGAAN me bhi KACHRA ko reservation provide kiya tha!
Rekha ji, You are talking of brilliantstudents of self-proclaimed ‘uppercastes’ The brilliant and meritorious doctors ofso called upper caste are killing people like animals.Recently a new born baby was declared dead by one of these meritorious doctors even though the child was living. In another case another meritorious doctor amputated the left leg when it was the right leg that had to beamputated’ what to talk about proper medical knowledge many of them do not have the basic knowledge of surgery and medicine.
The doctors who were called in to operate both for Mr Vajpayee and Mr Mahajan are from SC, STand so please stop this malicious and mischevious propaganda that SC & ST are notmeritorious…. forget yourselfbeing compared to OBC. Please stop living in yourfool’s paradise any longer.
mam i am not agree with your comment why you are saying to STOP RESERVATION.seats are divided category wise if there will be a Brilliant Student he/she crack everywhere.
Oh dear you said the topic of episode was untouchability so it was not of Reservation. We should only request AAMIR JI for also highlighting this topic for a better solution
JABTAK INDIA ME CASTE RESERVATION SYSTEM RAHEGA SOCIETY ME BHI CASTE UNTOUCHABILITY RAHEGA.
Sanjeeb Mishra, will you be ready to do such dirty work if you will get reservation for yourself in exchange till as many generations you want ? Not even reservation, free food, expensive clothes and all the free facilities only you need to do such dirty work as your profession, Will you be ready ?
It is surprising how you are connecting reservation to such in humanism....You didn't saw innocent boy skipping his lunch because of discrimination....and you are educated person
Require 100% Caste Base Reservation system for Every Work in INDIA .
Dear Mishraji..... Reservation to Bahot Salose hai.... Bharat aazad honese pahilese hai... Kya Mandir ka poojari koi aur hota hai.... Sirf Brahmin hi hota hai... kyo... Pooja Havan ka kaam sirf brahmin hi karega kyo.... baki log anpadha hai kya... Aap log padhkar unche post par vashile ke sath jate hai... kyoki aap ke hi community ke log vaha hote hai... ya phir jo fail hote hai voh log mandirome purane pothiyoke sath hamare diye gaye bhik par jite hai... logo ko ullu banakar .. darakar paisa aithate hai... pahele aap logo ka aarakshan khatam karo phir dusari baat karo....
Apka kehne ka matlb kya hai? RESERVATION denge to ap UNTOUCHABILITY karenge..? aisa.. NOW THIS IS TOO RUDE. UNTOUCHABLE kya hota hai.. ? ye bataiye. CONCRETE NOUN pata hai? every man, building, material can be touched. ABSTRACT NOUN :- Love , happiness , sorrow cannot be touched.. AND few things cannot be touched like:- GODS, ANGELS, FAIRIES, MERMAIDS.... to ap kehte hain lower caste ke log ANGELS hain? how sweet of you.. :D think sweet like this and reservations ka matter laake kisi ke sentiments hurt mat kriye.. :D all are equal
Mr. Sanjeeb, could you please elaborate what does your comment mean?
YOU MUST SAY JAB TAK CASTE UNTOUCHABILITY RAHEGA. TAB TAK INDIA ME CASTE RESERVATION SYSTEM RAHEGA. BECAUSE UNTOUCHABILITY IS FOR LAST 3000 YEARS AND CAN'T BE REMOVED IN FEW YEAR. RESERVATION IS JUST 80YEARS OLD. IT WILL TAKE TIME DEARS. THOSE WHO OPPOSE RESERVATION, THEY STILL HAVE UNTOUCHABILITY IN THEIR MIND.
MISHRA JI...... ye typical pandito wali baat mat kro aap aisa lag raha hai ap 19th century ke me jee rahe ho.... kuch to HUMAN BEING bn ke socho
Sucheta Mishra leave abt sanjeeb....sucheta....we cant change people like this....the way he has writen that na...thats really bad yr....even after watching show if one can have that perspective shame on this....
abe oye mr sab reservation tum hi loge toh baki kya karenge
See ye ladai krne ka time nhi hai.. :D we must remove untouchability first
utterly stupid comment. untouchability was there before reservation. so one has nothing to do with the other.
what u mean
when i joined my B.Tech college NIT Durgapur, then our senior used to slap after asking about questions related to caste. If someone says that he is from this cast then they used to slap him. they have taught us if anyone will ask you are from which caste then say "STUDENT CASTE". from then i never differentiate people caste-wise.
Rahu SrivastavaBhushan Steel Ltd.Dhenkanal, Odisha
BUT YOU COULDN'T REMOVE SRIVASTAVA FROM YOUR NAME. SLAPS DIDN'T WORK.
caste has nothing to do with surname... y cant i have a surname and still i don't belong to any caste... y cant castes exists but still they are all equal.. the major issue here is we consider some people untouchable, we don't give them the equal rights to be around us as we give to some other caste people.. we must not consider people untouchable no matter what caste, religion, colour, they are from.. we need to get rid of untouchability from our minds and people must never feel inferior/ashamed or superior while talking about their caste, etc..
Such learning should be given to each and every Indian to make a caste free India.....Good Senior, good learning and that'swhy you are also good Rahul...I never thought such thing can happen ...what a idea !!!!
Hi Amir Sir,I am Sourabh Patil. I would like to share my experience about caste system.I am against untouchability and harassment of the 'Dalit Samaj'. But i wouldlike to enlighten you about the system about the RESERVATION.Before I tell you about this, I'd like to introduce myself.I am Sourabh Sanjeev Patil from Jaysingpur, Dist. Kolhapur, State: Maharashtra.I'm 18 years old and now I've completed 12th in Science. I come from OPENcategory.I wanted to take admission in College Of Engineering, Pune(COEP). But due toacute shortage of 4 marks, I cannot claim the seat over there. I'd scored180/200 in CET and the merit for OPEN category closed at 184. But the studentscoring 130 from ST category claimed the seat over there. Is it that if we arefrom OPEN category, we need to study more and if one hails from OBC/SC/ST/SBCetc., category needs to study less? Why is this RESERVATION system prevailingin India? The system of untouchability is almost abolished in India. Then whyare the people from backward class still enjoying the RESERVATION system? Iasked this same question to one of my friend who hails from one of the backwardclass. His answer shocked me! He said that the Brahmins in earlier days did alot of sins so their further generations are suffering this problem! Now sir,do you believe that the punishment of one person's mistake cannot be given toany other person? Then why should we suffer from RESERVATION system?I do believe that the rights of the backward class people must be safeguarded.This doesn't mean that they must be given excess rights. After results, I and myfriends were discussing about our further admissions. Some of my friends evenafter scoring low marks were happy telling that they will easily get admissionin their expected institute on account of their caste. Then did we make anymistake by taking birth in a high class family? Do you believe that a person’ssins start right from the time he/she is in his/her mother’s tummy? If yes wereally did mistake by taking birth as a human. Isn’t true? The real merit of astudent depends on his/her study, isn’t it? Or is it his caste that decides howmuch he needs to study? If so then what is the difference left between modernIndia and ancient India? Earlier where one’s study/work used to depend on hisforefathers and religion? Do you believe we are moving in a modern world byreserving seats for backward class people? If the government wants to help thebackward class people then it should help ECONOMICALLY backward class peoplewho really strive to live. But this help doesn’t mean that they must get somereservations. They must be helped economically. They too can move ahead and canclaim the seat of their merit.
Have you ever seen reservation system in US/UK/otherdeveloped nations? That’s the reason why they are moving ahead. They care meritand not caste/family background of the person. Finally they care hard workwhich is the key to success. Why must we tell our Indians that their seats andplacements depend on their caste and not on their hard work? Are we in theposition that we need to go ahead and take our country to top? Or just we aretrying to build up caste system in the reverse way that we saw in ancientIndia?
We must make our citizens aware that we must develop ournation and not develop caste system. If India needs development then the systemof RESERVATION must be abolished. This is the bitter truth that the peopleenjoying RESERVATION must accept and develop our country.
Do you agree it? Must share this fact to LokSabha orPresident of India. Please make aware of this fact on your show.
And Sourabh, you are talking about US/UK. In UK, when Shilpa Shetty faced racism. Their whole country opposed Jade Goody and they gave full support to Shilpa Shetty. You don't compare Indianswith US/UK people. If they don't have reservation then they have very good humanity. Here peoplekeep mum when lower caste face any problem. They don't keep mum when anybody face racism.
All the channels shown this news :Ref:Satara: In a shocking incident, a Dalit widow was assaulted and reportedly paraded naked at Mulgaon village of Patan tehsil in Satara district, western Maharashtra, two days ago, after her son eloped with a girl from a high-caste family. Patan police on Wednesday arrested Kisan Dattatray Desai (45), Hambirrao Bapurao Desai (39), Shantabai Kisan Desai (35), Vimal Vishwas Desai (32) and Sunita Hambirrao Desai (35) in the case under Indian Penal Code sections 143, 149 (unlawful assembly), 354 (assault with intention to outrage woman's modesty) and 324 (causing grievous hurt). "We are investigating further," Sub-Divisional police officer Fattulal Naikawadi said. On Monday, Rekha Chavan (42), a Dalit woman, was allegedly paraded naked and later assaulted as her 22-year-old son eloped with a girl from the Desai family.
Same way all the channels should show news that this Desai Family has got full oppose from all Marati Brahmin Community. They got full boycott from marati brahmin community.
Sourabh, what you will do if you are at that Boy's position whose widow mom has got such in humanic treatment from any family. Indians do drama that they don't believe in castism because everyone keepmum when such inhumanic incidents happen. How lower caste people will feel that we have accepted them as human beings now.
And what you wrote :This is the bitter truth that the peopleenjoying RESERVATION must accept and develop our country.
What about the development of removing castism from India for the development of humanity in India.
If they are facing trouble then we will keep mum and if we are facing trouble due to reservation thenreservation people have to understand that higher caste people are getting trouble due to reservation.
Financially stable SC/ST people will boycott reservation if high caste people boycott such cheap nonsense people from their society who believe in castism. But, such things never happen and peopleask removal of caste based reservation because castism is no more present.
Sourabh,How many people don't believe in caste system from your place. As my memory goes this is the incidenttook place on Thursday, January 12, 2012, And this Satara place is at some 2-3 hours distance from your place. Does your marati speaking society boycott such cheap human beings from your society. This is also not fair. And in US,UK people get very strict punishment with such acts. But, in India people are left after receiving money. I heard that in your Marati Area water pipelines are separate for lower caste people. In US black people faced racism and they look very different than white people. But on which basis this SC caste is made.Because all people look same in India.Only our south indian people look black in India. And you peoplebehave good with OBC people. Why ? I know every one will not remove clothes of SC people but definitely castism is very highin your Marati Kolhapur Satara Area. This Desai is also Marati brahmin I think right ? Even after 65 yrs of independence it is difficultto expect at least humanity from human beings. After knowing all this even if some people don't want to use reservation will feelwhy not to use. Do you boycott all the respect you receive on the basis of caste. Have you made your place as heaven for SC castepeople before asking removal of reservation. And this case is closed by police and politicians by saying that it was family issueand it didn't happened. I don't understand one thing when girl is leaving her home by her wish why you people do not perform such punishments with your own girl. If anybody has kidnapped her then also it shouldn't happen. But why you marati people do like this.I think people take education to earn money only.Rest uneducated and educated people both believe in castism/in humanism. We need to be extremely good with such people after that only they will leave the reservation by their own wish. And such incidents make peoplefeel that castism is not over, it is just drama that we don't believe in caste system. Your marati brahmin community should also show high oppose and rally against such in humanism in your area. But no one bothers right. When other person suffers this much badly your society don't boycott such cheap family. Actually such people deserve untouchability. And its not like lion and elephant has eloped. Human beings only eloped na. Then why people do such nonsense.

hello mr. sourabh patil your voice is the voice of all forward class people those they enjoying allfacility for a long2 time 15% people of india having85%resources of the country.it is very2 shameful to talk about reservations.the aim of reservation is to give representationof the backward class because they are backward in all field like education, power&money for more than two thousands years .after geting independence to establish eqality liberty fraternity &justice for all the native of India.if you people are want to abolish the reservation you must abolish the cast system of India you forward class people must surender all the lands&industries to the govt. of India make everyone on the same level then there will be no need of reservation for any person.THE CAST SYSTEM in India is reservation made by Hindu law in MANUSMRITI Brahmin had100%reservation of EDUCATION&RELEGEON Kshatriya had 100%reservation of power RULER &Vaisya had reservation of money sources&85% SHDRA HAD NO right they all are servant forever.
sourabh,i do like ur comments.
dear Amir, your today's telecast on manual scavengers were incredible but i think you mixed two thing altogether i.e. pathetic situation of scavengers and, lower and upper caste problems...today, untouchability is less practiced in India which was more highlighted in your episode and the sufferings of general category, due to reservation, were untouched which is unjustifiable....
if you really want to showcase the reality of society than you must survey that who are suffering today, its general category or dalit. since, the policy of reservation has come, it has only benefited the reserved category and brought generals to their end....it has become unbearable that a general category student at the rank of 600s in UPSC does not get IRS and a reserve candidate becomes IPS, do you find it justified....
Dear Reemaji, if you hv seen this episode properly, it showed the inhuman treatment meted out to some people from so called lower caste. As shown in the episode, untouchability is prevalent in India, but caste based discrimination is more rampant. Reservation is totally different issue. What reservation has to do with inhuman treatment or discrimination to the so called lower caste people.
After the policy of reservation, lower caste people are able to study in schools and colleges, they are able to get jobs, they are now more aware of their rights and law. All these things happened because of reservation. If you are talking about suffering, then so called lower caste people have suffered for the last hundred of years. What about that. At that time also, there was reservation but only for so called upper caste. What about that. 100% reservation was given to so called upper caste. Still they are given around 70% reservation. SCs/STs get only around 25%. So who is still suffering. You are talking about such menial ranking in some exam. Reservation has empowered them. It has given them a sense of belonging, dignity etc.
Why is it when something like" resevation" comes in highlight ...it pains you and you have voice and why u keep mum when u see this kind of social injustice which is not new in our indian community but ancient . untouchability and casteism are part and parcel . U r born prevelidge .... Put urself in their shoes and live atleast a day ... u will forget ur UPSC rank pain because the latter is too complex and painful if u listen to their stories
Reema, Agreed to your concern i am too a open category student and more a Muslim (NRI --- Nor required Indian), we should thanks Aamir for the Job he has done by at least speaking what the society is facing, in his show he has never justified the reservation policy, his effort were to make INDIA as INDIA by the constitution it has.
You and have research and you will be shocked that the reservation seats which are on offering in colleges and school are going vacant in the villages because the society so called "Modern" deny to give the education to them.
My solution to your problem is that we should have reservation for one generation like for e.g a person should be given reservation till the time he becomes educated and self employed after this reservation from his immediate family should be taken off. In one or two decade the result will be good.
@ Mr. Azmi: I like your NRI tag, and totally get the sarcasm :) I am sure you would have had your share of go-back-to-pakistan types in your life. Such is our "rashtra" (as highlighted by Justice Dharmadhikari) - the pledge to live together we have taken.
@ Ms. Reddy: Why do we have this escapist attitude of suggesting all the solutions to the GoI? Given its past record, it doesn't work well anyway. How about doing something at home? Inter-caste marriages cannot be enforced by the government, but can certainly be encouraged individually! Maybe we'll get a step closer to inter-faith marriages, some day.
Yes, reservation should be taken off as reservation family take it once and as it is taken off that family should be treated as general high caste family...and if anybody will insult him on the basis of caste thenagain reservation should be given to same family because if they are competing in open then they shouldget respect of high caste same which we get and if they are not getting same respect then reservationshould be given to them again...
