YOUTH FOR EQUALITY

"I have referred to efficiency & our getting out of our traditional ruts........I dislike any kind of reservation, more particularly in services.I react strongly to anything which leads to second class standards........If we go in for reservations on communal & caste basis we swamp the bright & able people......I WANT MY COUNTRY TO BE FIRST-CLASS COUNTRY IN EVERYTHING.THE MOMENT WE ENCOURAGE SECOND CLASS, WE ARE LOST..............This way lies not only folly but disaster."
--Pt. Nehru

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHO ARE WE?
Youth for Equality
is an initiative by Medical students & professionals from
UCMS(UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES), AIIMS(ALL INDIA INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES), LHMC(LADY HARDINGE MEDICAL COLLEGE), VMMC(VARDHMAN MAHAVIR MEDICAL COLLEGE), MAMC(MAULANA AZAD MEDICAL COLLEGE) .....who feel strongly against populist measures (reservations on basis of caste, religion) which are wrong, unjust and harmful for India's future.


WHAT DO WE WANT?
We want the government to immediately scrap reservations.


WHY?
1.Reservations compromise the quality of medical care as merit is ignored and those who might not be competent enough might get seat.
2.Reservations have been a colossal failure.If 60 years after initiating reservations the govt is feeling the need to extend them, it is but obvious that these measures have failed.Needed instead are newer & more innovative measures like better facilities.
3.Reservations are crutches which severely limit the ability of such backward communities to equal or even better others.
4.
Such measures do not benefit the really improverished and backward people, rather only end up dividing us.
5.Reservations add momentum to the already increasing trend of braindrain


We feel that NOW is the time to take matters in our hands as it is OUR future at stake.

For our voice to be heard, it is imperative to form a representative body of students from all across India. We shouldn't be divided into Eng, medical, law, arts, science, commerce, etc.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT YOU OR ME , THIS IS ABOUT US.


HOW TO GO ABOUT ACHIEVING THIS?
1) MOBILISING PUBLIC OPINION. Via media, demonstrations, signature campaigns.
2) LEGAL RECOURSE. Filing PIL (esp against reservation at postgraduate level)

Therefore we invite all Indians who feel stongly about this and wish to contribute in some way. We should be united, and make a powerful statement on this issue.


We realise that achieving this is an uphill task.... but we also believe ITS NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

We really would like your suggestions on how to effectively form such a body, and carry this forward.
Write to youth4equality@gmail.com

We are also on Orkut....see link on this page

Divisive Reservations: Opportunity Denied is Dignity Denied

Friends as you are aware that the politicians of the day have yet again attempted to undermine the spirit of an equal society and divide the youth of India.

The attempt to create dissentions amongst us, and to deny the basic right to self respect to many of us by offering ill meaning reservationist policies should be opposed tooth and nail.

The recent recommendation of the Government of India seeking to offer 27% reservation in all educational institution to OBC`s (thus making it a total of 49.5 % reservations) under the garb of upliftment of “backward communities” may be better read as “vote bank politics”.

Are we going to accept this unjust policy, which stifles merit, and jeopardize the chances of the best talent to blossom in the nation?

Are we going to take this injustice hands down?

Are we going to accept the crap that our greedy politicians have put forth in the form of unjust and irrational policy decisions?

This fight is not against individuals or communities but to prevent further divisions in already divided society of ours. Not just this, the fight is to prevent the denial of dignity to the communities who are being offered crutches when they don’t seek them and crippling of many more meritorious students.

The time for complacency is gone….
The fight is now or never! So lets join hands and nip this misadventure in the bud.

Beware greedy politicians! The youth of India is now awake and refuses to be divided by your populist measures.

Views from all sections are welcome. Tell us how you can help us to make a difference.

HISTORY OF RESERVATIONS IN INDIA: KNOW THE FACTS!

1951: Amendment to constitution says that states can make special provisions for advancement of any backward caste.
1953: Govt. sets up 1st backward castes commission, under Kalelkar which submits report in 1955.
1963: Supreme court ruling limiting max. possible reservation to 50% in any institution.
1977: Mandal commission set up... Recommends OBC quota in "JOBS" in 1980.
1990: VP Singh proposes implementation of Mandal's reccomendations.
1992: SC upholds 27% quota for OBCs in govt. "JOBS" subject to exclusion of the 'creamy layer'.
1993: Govt. defines "creamy layer". Mandal implemented.
2006: Arjun 'Mandal' Singh proposes resevations in all centrally managed institutions/ universities (both funded and non-funded). AND we can already see him drooling for petty votebanks... SHAME ON SUCH REGRESSIONIST 'LEADERS'!!
They are no more than a bunch of crooks who can see no further than their own vested interests...

i totally support you guys and it's endorse your view regarding reservations. I think right now the efforts are fragmented. On orkut only quite a few groups have been created. I think the youth should move together to make the voice audible.
One such group is "Rennaisance Men". I think we can tag other realated groups on respective community & then we can have teh respective moderators sharing a single platforms where a mass movement can be decided upon.
kudos to you guys.

being a doctor is not just being educated.it means much more than that.the lives of the people are at stake.and u cant ignore that just for the sake of the said "upliftment" being taken care of by the politicians of our country.this is just vote bank politics and nothing else.anyone with a sound mind should oppose this menace of reservation.the max that should be done is give them scholarship once they are into a college and that admission is on basis of their merit and not other considerations like caste.

Why does my education seem to be my biggest burden?
Why does my conscience seem to be a cross I’ll have to bear all my life?
Why do I feel unwanted in my own country?
Why is the India of my dreams sinking & I can only sit and watch…

Well, yes what the hell am I doing, sitting here and contemplating , what its all about….

Well, it’s the MURDER of society and civilization .its almost genocidal in proportion. Its akin to the murderous holocaust wiping out a whole generation of Indians
Are we blind & deaf , can’t we hear the guns and ammunition
Or wait..
Are we pathetic cowards, who wouldn’t nudge even if our parents were murdered. True ,we are the pop generation. Hail instant gratification!

Oh ya ! you will forward this thru e-mail & sms to all your pals

Well , it’s the RAPE of our pride and our self respect .That’s because they are using us for their own pleasure. We are victims of a perverted twisted political ideology.
And we just watch!
Oh yes ! we are pathetic cowards , who will do the same when our sisters are raped. Perhaps the smoke from our cigarettes & the high from spirits will help us forget the unpleasant reality.

Oh , forward that too ! will ya !

Well , its also EXPLOITATION of our abilities because we are lugging forward the aspirations of a whole nation & are severly reprimanded if we do not provide for the comforts of people who refuse to take control of their lives and take India two steps back for every one step taken forward.
Well what do we do, just watch , while we are still forwarding e-mail’s & sms’s .
Yes ! we definitely are pathetic cowards coz we watch them throw us out and take over our homes and lives.

Well dude ! I know u forwarded that 2 thnx man! Ur gr8!


Oh yes ! if it seems terrible it is !
Welcome to reality !
Welcome to the jungle. where every body is just looking for his next prey to pounce upon, albeit under cloak of a civilized society


What has India come to?
What has happened to the youth of the country , the fuel and power of the nation , for whom the MURDER , RAPE & EXPLOITATION of their own country is lost in a maze of sms’es , e-mails & inaction ?

Will I chose to escape from it all?

Will I resign to to a life of ignorance and go from cowardice to regret & remorse & finally to fade in frustration.

Or will I chose to come together and fight and build a future & an India that we all are proud of………

Many people feel helpless about it,they say "Kya hoga demonstration,dharna,signature campaign".

My take is-- Guys don't be disheartened
the arguments that we medicos have are very strong + the Indian Medical Assoc. is supporting us.

So, we probably can stop it from happening to us.

Our duty till then is to maintain the hype and not let the issue die.

Where do I go
I am a medical student of general category unfortunately I had to take a drop during my pre medical tests where I wasted one whole year of my life time doing absolutely nothing. Today after a long wait of 4 years I am in the last and final year of the course and awaiting what becomes of me in the post graduate entrance test . I have not one but many things to think about my offers are already limited by the fact that the number of doctors passing out with me during the year far out numbers the number of seats available for PG courses. The number of people who sit for the exam again outnumber the number of people passing this year by a great margin which narrows down my chances of getting a PG to the bare minimum. United Kingdom has already figuratively stopped accepting non European doctors. United states puts a big hurdle at the visa office. The last and the final blow comes form nowhere but my own land by giving reservations o as high as 27% to the backward classes of India in a professional post graduate course. It does not matter how competent one is but it does matter how backward one is. Don't take my comment as a mockery to the underprivileged but what I want to put forward is ; is it right to let a mentally or skillfully less competent doctor take a course of a specialty just because he/she belongs to a backward class? Is it right let a person play with the life of a patient when we know he or she is not competent enough? This is the question I want to ask the government today: where do I go?
Let there be a fair competition. Let there be help to them by providing them opportunities to study and not back door entries to courses. Let the competition be equal for all. Let them prove their competence for doctors' job I something that requires skill and knowledge irrespective of what caste or creed one belongs too. How would Mr Arjun Singh like to be treated by a doctor whom he knows is there not because of his capabilities but his previleges

Which is more important your protest or the need for the UPA government to return to power?

The new reservation policy by HRD minister Arjun Singh is unfortunate. At a time when everything was booming and nation was making steady progress he has brought in this vote bank gimmick.
How long shall we carry on with these reservations and how many more reservations are going to come up? First reservations in the jobs. And now New reservation and that too 27 % .

Enough is Enough.
Dont bend a stick so much that it breaks.

Another disappointing aspect to it is that it will apply to private unaided educational institutes as well. Government should stop interfering with the private sector for all the wrong reasons. Give freedom to the private sector to grow. Individual talent and the capabilities have to be recognized and suitably rewarded.
Why is the government passing on its social responsibility to the private sector. Government is already collecting taxes and i am sure a major chunk of it is contributed by the "general category" and in the process fulfilling its social responsibility. What more do you want? Aren't we working and earning honestly?

Let hard working and meritorious students not suffer and suffocate. The time had come that the government should have actually started reducing the reservations in stead of throwing up this new one. The needy should actually be given the facilities for learning and not the seat itself. If candiadates are made to suffer this way their faith in the system and the government will melt away soon.

I urge all of the people affected and sympathising with those affected to come forward and oppose this move at all possible steps. Let our voices and dissent be heard and communicated.

It is crystal clear that this proposal of extention of reservation is based only on caste-based vote-bank politics. It is reverse discriminatory, will introduce mediocrity in this country as opposed to excellence, and definitely has the potential to cauase a wide spread exodus of meritorious students belonging to the G-cat.
We would wholeheartedly support any action taken by the govt for the upliftment of the backward classes; reservation, DOES NOT, however, lead to the upliftment of the backward classes for the simple reason that it does not target the people who actually need upliftment. Those who can take advantage of this are actually the small creamy layer, who are already well educated and socially and economically well off. If the people, for whose upliftment this policy is being introduced, can't even get primary education or even holesome dal and roti for meals, how can they ever benefit from reservation in some premier institute cxalled IIM or IIT or AIIMS?
If in a nation the merit seats in institutions of excellence are given to non-meritorious students at the cost of meritorious ones just because of ther "caste", then the only direction in which the nation can go is downwards.
With reservations in private schools and private jobs also in the pipeline, the people belonging to the G-cat have no other option but to either truggle against all odds or to flee from this country for good.
If the govt actually wants to do something for the upliftment of the backward people, it should provide them with adequate facilities for primary and seondary education, free food,free books, extra coaching and adequate employment opportunities for those below the poverty line. They can be uplifted only by providing them with a path to success and helping them in their journey, not by reserving seats at the destination which not only harms the lives of the general people, but is also useless for the actual backward people who do not even have adequate access to the 'path'. In this respect, the govt has failed in its duties.

Hi,
I wanna say that the time has come that we do something radical. Following this Gandhian Philosophy of petitioning and begging for our rights has to go. We have to snatch them away from these deaf and blind politicos who dont give a shit for principles. Lets not forget, this is the same congress which Gandhi set up. And this is the same congress which split up India. Jawahar to Indira to Rajiv, The Nehru Parivar has always been empathic to India. These politicos have always played in the hand of their subsideries like this old man Arjun Singh. We the general category, have always suffered because of two reasons.
1.Our sympathy to all. These shaddus have nothing to lose. They have always been one and get ready to fight for their rights at once. We have to understand that we have to fight. Fight with guns if possible. Marx said "Revolution demands blood". Bose said "Tum mujhe khoon do, mai tumhe azadi duga". Agar jitna hai to bahar aao apne is dar se aur chauda seena leke khade ho jao. Tabhi hamari awaz koi sunega.
2. And stop being sweet to these shaddus. Comments like they are fighting with us, and standing by our side. BULLCRAP. Hamari ladai inse hai. Tell them to fill general category form in PG exams. Fight along with us. Not one will come forward. BOYCOTT them. They will not stand by our side.
Till we dont spill out o the streets, till we dont reach decibels of a launching spaceship, till we dont draw blood, we will not be heard. and only the youth are not involved. Involve the elders also. This movoment is just not for the rights of the student community. It has to be a war of the masses, war for the masses.

Jai Hind.
Long Live The Revolution.

Truly saying this new step of the govt. 4 vote politics will harm the harmony among the various sections of the society and it will GREATLY affect the educational growth of a developing country like India. The cut throat competition takes a hell out of children n with the seats for reserved category declining it will eventually lead 2 brain drain to other countries WHICH HAVE NO RESERVATIONS.
Its the time 4 us to join our hands and fight against those polititians who are neglecting thye future of INDIA 4 their own vested interests.

i strongly support the ongoing campaign against these regressionist measures tried out by arjun singh,who seems to have no better way of avoiding alzheimer`s at his age than put all of us in delirium!what he`s trying is absolutely to be condemned.no less.our families have a middle class mentality of buckling ourselves for the fight ahead,and study harder,but i believe we always do that,and do the biggest crime of all--take injustice lying down.gandhi condemned such insane behaviour.it is as good as whipping ourselves and deriving vicarious masochistic pleasure from the act.delivering crutches to a man who can walk is not a done thing,as our friends on the other side realise.merit must win,at all costs,if we want our country to progress the way it is.wish youth for equality all the best!

We shudder to think what is going to happen to al our institutes once the reservation comes into play... take AIIMS, as an example of a central govt institute. We have 50 seats per batch in MBBS...49.5% gives 24 seats to the quota (Cunning government bast*rds know that 50% cant be imposed so they put 49 point goddamned 5 %...Fu**ers)...

we are left with 26 seats...and there is a mandatory 10% reservation for foreigners...so tke away another 5 seats...Remaining is 21.

One seat is reserved for Physically handicapped persons...giving a GRAND TOTAL OF 20 seats or less to compete for...from 33 to 20.

This fight is not really for us...majority of us were planing to move out after MBBS anyway (and dont call me anti national please...its just that i dont consider myself good enough to get a good seat in AIIMS PG)...

This is for the POOR G CAT KID
who is giving his ass in Aakash Institute and Brilliant Tutorials and Narayana and Sri Chaitanya and OES...For the kid who stays up all nights even though his mom tells him to go to bed...preparing with honesty for PMTs or JEE or CAT...they have no damn voice...should we go into these coaching institutes and ask them to join the movement? these are our future fachchas and fachchis after all...

Whats next, arjun bhai? anoter such reservation if imposed in CBSE PMT would literally kill any ambitions of a school kid to become an MBBS doctor...

ANd reg that post abt Reserved Cat guys being against us...im not sure thats always true...some of them just feel they are morally not justified to oppose an OBCs entry hrough reservation, since they themselves havecome through the same route...they are not bad people. We have a problem with increase in reservation, NOT with PEOPLE WHO ENTER THROUGH IT.

Whats wrong with a person trying for a reseved seat when there is a reservation? its not their fault, its the governments fault for trying to increase it. why, had there been a quoata for indian students in US colleges, i dont believe many of would have had any problems tAking advantage of it!

I am not against reservation but reservation at PG level means some people who are qualified doctors, getting benefit of being SC/ST. This is injustice, reservation should done at primary level. Politicians are not at all concerned with the future of these people, they are only conerned with their votebanks.

This reservation does not help those people who are really suffered from the backwardness, in most of the cases only those people are benefited whose families are already in strong position, or their parents have already got good job because of this status.
There should be some mechanism that one people will get this benefit only once in his lifetime and his descendent won't be allowed to take the benefit of this reservation. Otherwise even 50% reservation won't help them much.

"PROJECT 19"
A JOINT PROTEST ON WEDNESDAY i.e. APRIL 19TH 2006 AT
RAJ GHAT
RAJGHAT
RAJGHAT
BE THERE AT 1500 hrs





The Governement, recently made its intentions clear to increase the OBC quota, taking the reserved seats up to 49.5 %, effectively half of the seats in all centrally funded Universities and institutions of higher education, including the IIT's and the IIM's.
This segregation policy of the Government, which aims to create distinctions among the students of India, has attracted a lot of criticism from various student bodies.
As an Indian, this affects you. If you think you are out of it, think again. Populist measures such as these have attempte at selling you, the Taxpayer short, and it's about time you find your voice. After years of being alienated from the policy-making process, you don't frankly matter.
But this might be your last chance. Now, with this threatening to jeopardise your college aspirations, and in a lot of ways, your future, we request you to fight for yourself. When this reservation quota comes through, probably, it might be a little late.

TIME: 1500 Hours, 19- 04- 2006
Venue: Rajghat, N ew Delhi

Find your voices, and get as many people as you can in this noble endevour, to reclaim yourself, the citizen of the largest democracy in the planet.
People in other cities, please get in touch with us as quicky as you can. The more united and co- ordinated we stand, the stronger we are.
We would also request to forward this e- mail to as many people you can, doesn't matter whether he's a student or a parent, it AFFECTS everyone. Thats the least you can do.

Reading the news, blogs about the protest here in US, I can very well feel the fire set up there. Wish I was there....

Guys, this is a moment of change. If u dont protest now, our generation would be labelled as cowards and people who never dared to shape their destiny themselves. We would be held responsible for letting the country go into hands of some uneducated shit-loaded politicians.

Well, I believe this move of the government is :

1. First of all to create a vote bank, which soon will oust them who created it. Hence I believe they are being foolish in thinking vote banks as a permanent feature.

2. The government is trying to hide its inadequacy with a zero investment step. The government in all these years has failed to implement 'Education for All' particularly for the underprivelged cases. If the government had created equal standards of education for all upto 12th grade, then we wont need a system of reservation. We would then simply rely on merit in the entrance examinations.

The government is essentially trying not to curb the root cause of the problem, but rather just alleviating the manifestation.

One single guy who thought of this bill sitting on a shit pot cant change the future of the millions....

Its our society, we make it, the government is a part of it, if it doesnt behave the way it has to better throw it out than keep it in the society....

Carry on the fight guys.....

Hi, why only Doctors, in this fight against injustice i suggest that you contact engineering graduates as well.
2. secondly why only students, why not professionals. Request your senoirs, peers & all, to launch a non cooperation movement against government. Its high time. We now need to fight for equality. If SC/St's & OBC's have to come into mainstream, they have to pass the same tests as we do.... A more definite solution is need of the hour.
3. I suggest we draft a policy / proposal. A solution which will actually help the downtrodden & suggest the same.... i.e. lets take proactive approach.

Thats a great effort you guys have started. Its about time that somethings are put in perspective and one of them is that we belong to a generation which wants to be globally competetive. We don't need any help from our politicians coz by now we have realised we can do without them but its high time they stop messing with our progress and potential. Can't imagine any other country which sacrifices its brightest brains in the name of equality and progress.

I know many who are not students but who want to do something. Its important to find a way for others to be brought in otherwise this would die as a student movement and nothing else (and believe me i have been a part of three such failed movements in my 5.5 years of college). I can't imagine a way though I fancy a few heads put together might. I don't think a lot of them are powerful but at least they may be willing to do something.

There are a few of us who are sitting abroad and though I can't say that for everybody but I think at least some would defintely be willing to come forward and help you guys. Do you think some of you can organize yourself and think about a role for me and others like me. Also do you think a PIL could be filed for exploitation on this ground. There might be some law students who could be put to work for this.

We really need a globalized campaign against such measures otherwise there would be others like me who won't have a choice but to move out.

Lets not just sit back and do nothing about this.

Protesting agaist Quota is not the only solution. You must suggest correct ways of achieving what government pretends to achieve. If PIL is to be filed then it must not only contain arguments against reservation but also contain right ways of upliftment of the underprivileged. for example story in previous comment

Study Affirmative Action program of USA designed for Black people. Supreme court of USA has given several decisions saying quota as unconstitutional. But they have still succeeded in achieving diversity.

Let me make a few suggestions :
1.If our political leaders(?) are so emotional about reservations,let them visit physicians from reserved category only; whenever they are admitted to any hospital, the team of doctors treating them should comprise of physicians only from reserved category.
2.Siblings of MPs/MLAs have to study in our country in goverment colleges, at least upto graduation, and without going through the ministerial quotas. They cannot run the rot here and let their children study in world class universities abroad.
3.Let us form a group, try to build a consencous and support a political party that opposes reservation.

1.litigate
sue OBC doctors asking for reservation under caste/income categoty for post graduate seats..as they already have a huge ..and hence come under creme layer of obc..but anyway take reservation...
sue the government of india for subverting the fundamental rights of equality and social justice with later ammendments.the issue being whether a future law and subvert fundamental moral principles?....
2.confront...may not work... as we have seen the high handedness of the delhi..police beating women doctors
self immolation...not ok.. its against the law... and we all have parents to think about.. fast...no body care. i.e. medha patak and modi.. mail the president... he keeps strange silence... is he still there?
3. exodus... imgs are returning fromuk.. us too saturated... we dnt have another country to move to....
4. unite and segregate... this is the best option.... discriminate against those who discriminate against us...... bar all non meritstudents from fraternities etc... cause a social turmoil ... if it is the only way..

I wish that now we don't have to loose the oppertunity to get this shitty reservation right from the grass root. This is not the fight of only Govt funded higher educational institutes but its a fight of every one in the country who is paying TAX for the betterment of the society and the NATION. Its a fight of everyone who born in this country for the better future on the basis of MERIT. I never say that there is no reservation, but it should be really on the level of Economic level. This researvation anyways not on the "SEAT" level but on the getting basic education so that he or she can be equally compititive enough to take part on higher compitition which other candidates are facing.

This is not the fight of only Govt funded higher educational institutes but its a fight of every one in the country who is paying TAX for the betterment of the society and the NATION. Its a fight of everyone who born in this country for the better future on the basis of MERIT. I never say that there is no reservation, but it should be really on the level of Economic level. This researvation anyways not on the "SEAT" level but on the getting basic education so that he or she can be equally compititive enough to take part on higher compitition which other candidates are facing.

hii ppl awesome to see people respond the way they r ..its breathtaking

really, im completely against quotas COMPLETELY !!! but thats becos im for equality .. and tht means not just being against the quota system but treating everyone as equal, we r all(ppl frm general category,ppl frm quotas ) fighting against this quota system which was created by these wretched politicians to divide us to fill their vote banks.. we r all fighting as ONE whether we belong to any quotas or not .. but guys what r we fighting for at the end of the day .. FOR EQUALITY.to show these politicians they cant divide us... but i have felt frm observing things around me tht ppl r somewhere forgetting the real meaning of equality, u cannot be misbehaving with ur own batchmates n fighting for equality,u cannot be treating ur own batchamtes as unequals n fight for equality,u cannot be creating ill- will in ur institute n fighting for equality.. ppl who have come thru these quotas r also against quotas , cos thr should be no line to divide ppl.. but at the same time ppl who r already in these instiitutes thru the quotas u cannot treat them badly, they did not steal these seats , they were getting an advantage why wud they not take it , tell me if u or me wud be gettin an advantage thru proper legal means will we not take it.. n be honest pleeease!!
the answer us obvious! guys n girls pl lets respect each other then only any1 else will respect us or listen to us.. cos at the end of the day these ppl r ur batchmates , they r ppl, humans.. n u gotta respect them NO MATTER WHAT!!!

P.S: this is esp'ly directed at certain senior girls from MAMC who r fightiong with great gusto!! great going girls im with u , but dont get carried away with it , n mistreat ur own kind

YOUTH FOR EQUALITY- SUPPORT GROUP- D.U.

WE , STUDENTS OF DELHI UNIVERSITY
SUPPORT INITIATIVE BY MEDICAL STUDENTS AGAINST DIVISIVE RESERVATION POLICY OF GOVT. AND WE APPEAL ALL STUDENTS, THEIR PARENTS, ALL STAKEHOLDERS AND ALSO ALL THOSE WHO FEEL FOR THE NATION, TO JOIN US IN THE PROTEST.

lets remember one thing that great student protest at time of mandal commission was failed because we were not together and efforts were not coordinated.
LETS DONT REPEAT THAT MISTAKE.
GET ORGANISED.
SUPPORT THE STRUGGLE OF MEDICAL STUDENTS .
ITS NOW OR NEVER.
ITS DO OR DIE.
COME JOIN THE STRUGGLE.
WE APPEAL ALL STUDENTS OF DELHI UNIVERSITY TO JOIN THE STRUGGLE, ALL STUDENTS WHO ARE WAITING FOR THEIR RESULTS AND ASPIRING TO LIVE AND WORK IN THIS COUNTRY WITH DIGNITY.
INFORMATION FROM YOUTH FOR EQUALITY BLOD BY MEDIAVL STUDENTS-
WHAT DO WE WANT?
We want the government to immediately scrap reservations.
WHY?
1.Reservations compromise the quality of medical care as merit is ignored and those who might not be competent enough might get seat.
2.Reservations have been a colossal failure.If 60 years after initiating reservations the govt is feeling the need to extend them, it is but obvious that these measures have failed.Needed instead are newer & more innovative measures like better facilities.
3.Reservations are crutches which severely limit the ability of such backward communities to equal or even better others.
4.Such measures do not benefit the really improverished and backward people, rather only end up dividing us.
5.Reservations add momentum to the already increasing trend of braindrainWe feel that NOW is the time to take matters in our hands as it is OUR future at stake.For our voice to be heard, it is imperative to form a representative body of students from all across India.

We shouldn't be divided into Eng, medical, law, arts, science, commerce, etc.
THIS ISN'T ABOUT YOU OR ME ,
THIS IS ABOUT US.
HOW TO GO ABOUT ACHIEVING THIS?
1) MOBILISING PUBLIC OPINION. Via media, demonstrations, signature campaigns.
2) LEGAL RECOURSE. Filing PIL (esp against reservation at postgraduate level)Therefore we invite all Indians who feel stongly about this and wish to contribute in some way.
It is not necessary for others to join us.
If somebody out there (like in DU, IITs, IIMs) has already formed such a body, then we can join you .The important thing is that we should be united, and make a powerful statement on this issue.
We realise that achieving this is an uphill task.... but we also believe ITS NOT IMPOSSIBLE.
We really would like your suggestions on how to effectively form such a body, and carry this forward.
Write to youth4equality@gmail.comWe are also on Orkut....see link on this pageWe have received some comments and are thankful for same. However we request you to put your name, if not then atleast ur institution and batch.we also request u to kindly leave ur mail id's so that we can send u an invitation to join the group and support our common cause.

Need to do-

Hon'ble President of India http://presidentofindia.nic.in/
Prime Minister of India www.pmindia.nic.in(click on feedback link)
2)GBM in all 5 medical colleges on monday i.e April 17th

i just want to say that every so called 'category' person like myself who supports these reservations needs to do some introspection, for if u are competent, as we all claim to be, then we dont need any reservations... i have seen the state of my village, n having reservations for higher educations makes no sense... vot v need is better primary and secondary education facilities... there are no teachers in government schools in the villages,no furniture... nothing..... these are just namesake schools... we are indians first... i want to shun this label of 'category' that has come upon us... we are equal... we are as good as everyone else... we dont need any bloody reservations... we cant let this bloodthirsty bloody government divide india for votes!!!!! please here me out, my brothers!!! Any of us who have any self-respect, any pride in themselves, should oppose these reservations and join the movements against them!! i know i will!

Reservation ? Ok lets start reserving seats in Cricket too. A "reserved" class batsman if he hits a four he shall be granted 8 runs. If he is bowled, he still gets a second life. Mr Arjun Singh doesn't it sound gr8 ? Half of the country is already crazy for cricket and majority of them would be under our so called "Quota". A gr8 opportunity to gather votes I guess ? What do ya say ? Let's try and pass this bill too !!
I came to know about the present situation from a very close friend of mine in Lady Harding Medical college. It was shocking yet expected from a government like ours. Reservations were made in post Independence era to let the underprivileged and backward ppl have an opportunity to study,to work to live a life of dignity. Right now it's being misused by our politicians to satiate their own whims and fancies. It's thru these demonstrations only that we can open their eyes and tell them that India isn't sleeping.

Whosoever wrote this "its a pity that you so called doctors ( open category )are so ignorant about history. Ur Bas@#$ fore fathers had for since civilisation created untouchables for ur own benefit......" DUDE, wake up its 21st centruy, we are already busy screwing things at molecular level, who cares abt macro level..i mean humans..anyways, get some basic facts of life clarified.

1. Whatever be the state of society, there will be some stratification and people down the ladder are always the hardest hit. If castism was there in India, look into other cultures and u will find even more gory incidences than u wrote out of emotional fire. And in todays world, its financial stratification....so put this ladder system out which is inherent in every system and concentrate whats on hand.

First of all the basic purpose of the bill in the past was to allow enough number of years to get the backward classes at par with other castes..It was potrayed in this way, but it made the government win enough votes and then it helped the ones who were the priveldged in those so called underprivelded.

If u feel that reservation is justified then why dont u go out to villages and start teaching those kids who never had the opportunity to get literate though the bill was created to allow them to get into IITS and IIMS...frst make them literate, support the basic education system of INDIA and then think abt reservations...

And this bill isnt backed by any statistical analysis that says that so many years will allow for equality and blah blah..

The fury with which u wrote mail on the grp whud be used in villages in making people literate that there is a so called reservation bill also....dude, dont waste ur fuel, for it wud make us more justified in our approach, rather pack ur bags and leave for some village and start eductaiong people...

Guys, keep the fight on...

resoect for merit is what this government has failed to achieve.and what is more disturbing is that it is trying to get away by an extension of reservations.
this is nothing but a means of DIVIDE AND RULE.the youth are being divided on the basis of flimsy grounds.
the government's argument that it is a measure to bring about equality is but a lame excuse.it is a way of securing vote banks.

it is indeed saddening that the government is introducing resevation at tertiary level where pure talent must be trained for the profession.

BY EXTENDING RESERVATION BIRTH AND NOT WORTH IS BEING GIVEN IMPORTANCE WHICH IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

We all know that reservation is vote bank politics so one of the action plan for 5 years to abolish reservation could be:
1) Consolidate efforts try to bring in people who are getting reservations but think differently in the loop- women,SC/ST, OBCs etc etc.
2) Form a platform or talk to already existing communities like BM, Paritran, other social network to create a plan wherein the lower strata of society(i.e. economically disadvantaged) are advised to demand water, food, electricity from their elected reps instead of more quota seats.
3) When the time for election comes anywhere in any state and in any constituency stage a mass boycott of elections till reservations are removed.
4) For part (3) to be effective part (1) and(2) are required because you need to be big to have any effect.

Don\'t give up guys. no matter what. Someone had to raise their voice and why not our generation??? over the years we have become a nation of people who take things lying down. But its time to change. Its time to teach those stupid fools who call themselves neta\'s that our vision for india is radically different from their\'s. their priorities are misplaced. Their ideas are all wrong. I would rather not use unparliamentary language but I pledge to offer all the support that i can... don\'t give up. carry on and make sure the the voices grow so loud that even the materialistic masters of the media organisations are forced to play only what u all are saying on national channels through the day, national papers make you front page news... compell people to join... ask your parents to wear black badges. tell you dhobi, nai, mali, paan wala, anyone who supports this movement should wear a balck band. let people with black badges become a common sight... make families march.. young and old. dig out records of those who were injured and killed in the mandal commission protests. All govt hospitals would have them... contact their families and friends. get them to join you. make this mandal two minus the blood and gore. get smart and get even. this is the time to take the flame further... more to follow

our so-called elected reps hv learnt just one thing from the british, how to divide and rule. they only go in for populist measures and forget about development.
if reservations for the past 50 yrs have'nt benefitted the country, how making more of them will?
the debate is on in campuses across the nation and needs to be taken to the masses. Even with such vote-hungry and irresponsible mps as arjun singh and his govt i still have some faith in our democracy. i believe if we make this movement big enough the govt will have to rollback this proposal.

he is nobody to decide the future of so many students pursuing a helluva several courses at this pt. of time.this man functions at SPINAL LEVEL n needs to be told this vote bank politics is not gonna work anymore

I extend my full support for this cause. The fire must not die out.

The media is already calling it "MANDAL - II"...but it should not really go MANDAL - I way...for then...we all are certainly doomed.

Mr Arjun Singh has already maintained that the quota law has already been passes...it is only to be enforced now.

Making him stop this..is therefore a mighty task.

It needs everybody to be united and stand firm.

In an effort to bring every concerned youth of this country..on the same page..so better action can be taken..i ve made this FORUM and am forwarding it to Youth For Equality convenors to Moderate.

Alrite this is another of action plans and well not those 5 year ones but a current strategy:
1)Mass protest, nation wide including every college,every university,every school.
2) Women, OBCs, SC/STs should be part too.
3)Slogan should be- We will not vote for the party which gives reservation.
4)Emphasis on and tht should be said in rallies too-"Everyone should vote all people who can cast their vote should make it a must that they vote but not for the party which has given reservations right now"
5)When political parties see that some party lost their seats of power due to their reservation policy there are going to be some changes!

the no. of "educated voter" in india is miniscule.so if you and i and many others who understand the vices of resevations don't vote you cannot bring down a government.because the crowd which brings (or doesnot bring) them to power is the illiterate crowd who would vote any dumbass as long as they are given a bottle of liquor.

Regarding 'Give deprived section better facilities so that their competitiveness increases' : Practically we cannot give the education facilities a person in city enjoys, we can not have kind of schools at village level that city/towns have, not even to the level of Central School/DAV school/Navodaya Vidyalaya/GIC etc, leave alone the ones like public schools. Then comes Coaching part which is quite costly and now a days a very important thing required to clear entrance exams.

Except for the genius and strong willed ones its not easy for such people to compete with the resourceful ones.

UC vs Dalit : Skilled Vs Semi/Unskilled jobs :

For semi skilled/unskilled jobs : Pls tell how will upper caste person fare better that his/her Dalit counterpart

For Skilled Jobs : Pls note high end companies like Microsoft, Oracle, TCS, WIPRO, INFY etc hire several average scorers as well to do routine jobs let Dalits at least come in here. TCS/WIPRO chief should well know that computer engineers from good institutes (IIT's, Pilani, IT BHU, good NITs), do not attend their campus session.

The upper caste Hindus are very good at identifying their upper caste counterparts and reject rest on basis on communication/presentation skills, religion (Muslims) at resume shortlisting/interview level.

UC poor child VS Dalit poor child: UC wins :

Regarding Reservation only on basis of economic criteria : Well according to me poor upper caste will always fare better than poor Dalit child not because of genes but because of history, role models (including someone in close relation), parental emphasis on education and dalit child will miss all these. Thus except for genius and strong willed, its not easy for dalit child to compete successfully.

MUMBAI: Even as Delhi rages with protests against the Centre's reservation policy, the Congress-led Democratic Front government in Maharashtra has quietly approved a draft ordinance that will bring in a staggering 50% reservation in private professional institutions.

Please save Indian education. Please rope in some colleges from Mumbai too..please..

How long does it take for parity to be established? Okay, the Govt. brought a disadvantaged candidate till graduation... isn't that enough? Everyone reads the same books, sees the same patients, writes the same exams, and has the same environment. So then beyond graduation why reservations?
Professional courses deal with communities of people where each one has to be equally competent. Essentially, that would mean there's no need for reservations.

I STRONGLY OPPOSE EXTN OF RESERVATION FOR OBCs.FIRST LET US SIT BACK AND ANALYSE WAT GUD HAS COME FROM THE PAST 50 YRS OF RESERVATION.

------------------------------------

WEN SELECTIONS TO ALL PROFFESSIONAL COURSES ARE BASED ON ENTRANCE EXAMS,WHY DO DEY WANT TO PROVIDE A BACKDOOR ENRTY TO LESS DESERVING STUDENTS BY RESERVING SEATS FOR THEM.IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER AN INDIVIDUAL IS AN SC/ST/OBC/GEN.CATEGORY STUDENT IF HE/SHE IS COMPETENT ENOUGH,HE/SHE WUD MANAGE 2 CLEAR THE ENTRANCE EXAM AND IF NOT DEN THEY ARE NOT WORTHY OF THE SEAT AS IT IS!!!

 
At 11:58 am, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Its not that we the student community is only bothered about their seats,if extended reservations are introduced in2 proffessional courses the quality of proffessionals produced as a result would not be up to the mark.AND I SAY THIS NOT BECAUSE I THINK THAT STUDENTS BELONGING TO SC/ST/OBC ARE IN ANY WAY INFERIOR TO THOSE BELONGING TO THE G.CAT BUT because if reservation is introduced evn if someone belonging to the G.CAT has more marks,he will not get a seat while on the other hand someone with lesser marks would get it just because of his belonging to a particular caste...
And since the proffessionals produced would not be the best,the quality of services would suffer, affecting the common man adversely!!!

I feel dat the reservation on the basis of caste is wrong and wasteful bcoz if the govt is genuinely interested in helping those who hav lack of educational oppurtunities,it should impove the infrastructure at the school level and provide economic aid to those who cant afford education ...Keeping in mind the amount of competetion in our country for quality higher education.there is NO SPACE OR NEED FOR RESERVATION OF ANY KIND!!!

I firmly believe in the values of merit inplace of reservations. there are meritorious persons amongst reserved clases also. Shri APJ Abdul Kalam is one amongst them.

Reservatons are made only for votes.

I fimly believe that Govs will implement it at any cost. No agitations can stop them because we elect incompetent people for different elected posts.

I propose the following in this case. Propgate it if u like it and make it an issue:-

Let them taste the Reservations for themselves.


In this case I propose the following reservation for Prime Minister CMs MLAs MPs and all other elected posts.

In post independence history, the Union Government has been in seat from 13 days to five years. PM, Ministers,Members of Parliament & Assemblies all are public servants. There should be reservation for them also on weekly basis because no body knows how long the Govt, Parliament or Assembly would last. Every assembly or parliament seat should be declared to be won by at least four candidates on the basis of reservation i.e. from SCs STs , OBCs General and others and it should rotate amongst them on weekly or monthly basis. Even the PM, CM and Ministers posts should rotate amongst persons from general and reserved categories on weekly basis. Let the country, where the ability is always sacrificed for politics, go to dogs. Let the country go to dogs and let the politicians prosper at the cost of people and country.

Our constitution can be amended to this effect, as has been done earlie, to suit political ends, because it is the empire of politicians. But the so-called rulers don’t know that it is the people and INDIA who are supreme not the constitution, Parliament, or Court. When there will be no INDIA there will be no Constitution, Parliament or Govt.

Arjun Siingh is just an incompetent sycopahnt of the Govt. Whole Govt, rather all parties are responsible for this.

No political party or its office- bearers have spoken against RESERVATION. They all are hand-in-glove to ruin the country for their selfish ends and for benefitting their PROFESSION OF POLITICS, which is highly lucrative profession.

Let their be reservation for them also.

WHY RESERVATION?
After independence we had been divided into INDIA & PAKISTAN ; Whose consequenses we facing in this new era . i think by provoking this reservation issue our govt. is again going to d a blunder.we all are equal & diffentiation is only done on the basis of how much a n individual can study not on the basis of class.
THUS , NOW NOBODY COULD DIVIDE & RULE ON US . WE ARE EQUAL & REMAIN EQUAL.
THANKS!

Instead of improving the delivery of educational services at the primary and secondary schools, Arjun singh is hell bent on diluting the excellence of the premier institutes of the country. Reservation should be restricted to the under graduation/graduation levels. Though I am a working profesional, I fully understand/support your cause. Kudos for taking this up in the interests of youth. May you succeed in your endeavours!
