”We are the only nation in the world, where people fight to be called backward.”
There are times when you don't find enough words to express; and there are times when you don't have words to say. Take out all the dictionaries, of the known languages -- spoken; written; unsung; discover few -- still you wouldn't find the right word to say it, and more you say it; lesser it will be.
Let me correct it. There is no *backwards*. That's the wrong word chosen to insult one - tell'em you are not equal - make'em believe it every day - feel'em leeser - turn'em in their paper of votes . The difference is at the first place. “Device & Rule” is not out. It’s here… in every one of us.
On another note; it’s not enough to have mission, vision statement. One need to find the correct path – path with takes you there – path which may not be shortest one, but with better route – path where every milestone has something to cheer, believe, learn and proud; path which shows target from anywhere. Without that, it’s non-sense. Project without planning will lead to more destruction …
There are ways to do things rights, unfortunately plenty more to do in other. We are little more intelligent here. There were thousands; we discovered the next.
It was my high school exam days; I was at a friend’s home to get a book when he offered us a tea and some sweets. Reason was that he was added to sc list and so was happy that he would be part of quota which appearing engineering entrance exam. While swallow a piece cause of courtesy; something hit my mind and occupied a room till now; “is it a reason to celebrate or …?” How can be adding someone to a group which is referred as “backward” make one proud?” “How can blessing one with reservation can solve the big picture problem?” “Aren’t we making another breed which would suffer from this?” “Wouldn’t we miss out more talented guys?” “Are we doing it on cost of someone else?” “Aren’t we making them lesser creative and a bit lazy?” Remember best comes in challenge; creativity rises in pressure. Degree of performance depends on difficulty of task.
These questions are still unanswered till now. However I think there could be better ways to do it. Have some subsidy on fee, books, may be more facility but by no means we can give a feeling “Its okay; I don’t need to be better than all; I need to be better than my cast”. Frankly speaking, that’s the worst feeling. It’s like asking a fish to be in pond and well … fish is happy in that.
On the other side of coin, there is another set who feel it injustice for’em. Injustice when they find a lower rank gets a seat, Injustice when they find someone running of their stolen shoes. There is another set which hopes one day they will be part of quota.
And it’s not that all of them are benefited in one way or the other with this. There are some out them which make it worst for them itself. Take an example of handicapped quota. Most university has only 1 seat for this quota. There are some who actually need it; and there are some who just fall in. Food is not served to needy.
It isn’t like all of them are totally illogical. It’s partially correct somewhere. Take an example of a handicapped quota. Quota part is wrong, but there are some unfortunate who need a little assistance to prove their worth. I learned this from one of my good friend living his life without a hand. Despite that he is very passionate, confident, extremely talented and above all proud for himself. But his writing speed is actually hampered; there I feel – personally – he can have few extra minutes in exams.
Feelings injected in the mind doesn’t stop here, syndrome is getting bigger day by day, now it’s in blood ‘n’ everywhere – you name it, its there; whether it is education, state, business, language, profession.
Racism: Prejudice or discrimination based on an individual's race; can be expressed individually or through institutional policies or practices.
Isn't it another find of racism? I hope it doesn’t turn out as child’s seesaw game.
So where are we heading? Few decades down the line, there would be some kicked from bihar; some bihari kicked from maharastra; marathi from U.P, northies from tamilnadu, tamils from gujrat; Panjabi from kerala; malyali from
Definition is changed there days. “I am first a general … then north Indian …then anything else. Yeah, I’m an Indian … but only if asked on some news show covered widely.
There would be some ST, SC, Brahmins, thakurs, marathi, hindi, tamils, bangali ... none else.
... There will be none"
