I have been in support of this movement right from the early days, and I am still. But I take this oppurtunity to make an appeal to all doctors, regarding stop '' calling peoples from quota as incompetent''. Many a times people from such quotas outshine we people. Moreover, its against our etiquette to talk and protest preaching such cheap slogans. I agree such reservation should not be implemented at higher education level( post grad, post BE ). I welcome some healthy responses

I am here quoting the views of Prof. M Balakrishnan, a computer science professor at IIT Delhi. You can get the details at the iit4equality yahoo group.


Nearly six decades after independence, this country is planning to
announce that majority of its population is backward and does not
have equal opportunity to pursue education and employment. Along
with this, it is going to open up a Pandora's Box by various caste
groups to be classified as "backward". What an interesting way to
begin the 21st century when finally India was beginning to emerge as
a serious player in the new knowledge economy! The major carrot that
is being doled out is the seats in the elite medical, engineering
and management Institutes. What bothers me is no one is interested
in even consulting the people who have built these Institutions and
brought them to this stature. I have strong views on efficacy of
reservations in general but here I would confine myself to the
issues concerning IITs. At least here with my three decade long
association, I can claim to know something. Many of these arguments
may be applicable to the other elite Institutions in medical and
management disciplines as well.

Today IITs are considered excellent educational institutions. There
is a countrywide scramble to get into these with many students
spending the best part of their teen years in preparing for its
entrance examinations. This should not be confused with ranking of
universities where just a couple of IITs make it in the top 500.
These rankings deal primarily with the research output and not with
the quality of undergraduate education. I can confidently say that
any ranking of quality of undergraduate engineers produced would put
IITs in the top 20 worldwide if not in the top 10. And it is this
achievement that is going to be hard to maintain with the proposed
reservations policy. Before we go any further, it would be best to
examine how this excellence has been achieved.

The fundamental contribution that the Central Government has made to
these institutions is in generous funding (by Indian, not global
standards) combined with unmatched autonomy. The main point of
engagement between the Government and these Institutions has been
through the appointment of Directors. Except for a brief period
during the last administration, the Governments had refrained from
any major politicking in these appointments. They have by and large
appointed the best available applicant Professor from the same or
another IIT for the job. These venerable people had themselves a
great pride in these Institutions and have ran the Institutes with
the best of their abilities (maybe not always efficiently but always
fairly) without major vested interest.

For someone outside IITs to understand the power of this position is
not easy. The Director virtually appoints the complete senior
administration including the deputy directors and deans, chairs all
the faculty selections including that for the Professors, is the
chairman of the senate and thus the academic head, is the financial
head and also the administrative head. For most people living in the
campus, which includes 90% of faculty and students, he is also the
chairman of the local municipality (all major complaints on water,
electricity, sewage etc. would reach him). This ensures that the
buck almost always stops with him and thus decision making is
unavoidable. This autonomy that has been the hallmark of these
institutions is being eroded. There were attempts in the last
Government (fortunately not vigorously pursued) to tell IITs what to
teach. The present decision would strike at the fundamentals of IITs
as the Government no longer feels whom to teach and how many to
teach is best decided by these Institutions themselves. This in my
opinion is the most dangerous fallout as it strikes at the very core
of the success of these Institutions. Once the lines of control gets
blurred, there would be no stopping, as today's political
functioning is clearly not dictated by long term vision. Soon we
could have reservations in faculty and create a caste based
patronage system which has destroyed many of the once excellent
state universities.

In IITs, the faculty selected and promoted solely based on merit has
maintained a high standard of ethical behavior, have taken their
teaching and research seriously, refrained from politicking
themselves and supported the Institute in many ways to fulfill its
commitments. Who are these faculty members? A large number are our
own alumni (undergraduates as well as postgraduates), majority of
them have studied or conducted research in the west and almost all
of them have had opportunities of pursuing financially much more
lucrative careers in India and abroad. Thus each faculty member is
here by choice and he/she has exercised that choice with one major
attraction - opportunity to teach, interact and work with extremely
bright students perhaps unmatched anywhere. It is this attraction
that is being tampered with. In a situation where all IITs are short
of faculty and desperately trying to innovate to attract faculty
under the constraints of the pay commission dictated salaries (while
competing with Sensex based salaries), this is not a pleasant
development.

IITs have had reservations for SC/STs for decades. Why would this be
different? Aren't these students likely to be better prepared than
the students admitted under the existing reserved category? Here I
would like to share some of the facts with the readers. IITs have
been admitting SC/ST students for years under two modes. From the
general category, a significantly lower JEE cutoff is decided and
reserved category students scoring above this cutoff are admitted
directly to the UG programmes. Another still lower cutoff is decided
and reserved category students from this set are admitted to a one
year preparatory course conducted by IITs themselves. After passing
this course, they can join the programmes without having to appear
in JEE again. Even this exercise collectively yields less than 15%
in IIT Delhi though the quota amounts to nearly 22.5%. Half of the
reserved category students manage to clear courses comfortably while
the other half struggle on the margins. What would be called a good
performance (cumulative grade point average or CGPA of 8 and above)
and is achieved by nearly forty percent of general category
students, is rare and occurs once in many years among the reserved
category students. It is not that all general category students do
well. There is nearly a 5% "dropout" rate even among them which is a
cause of concern but mainly attributed to the burnout due to JEE
preparation phase. The "dropout" students have no effect on teaching
as they neither are regular nor make their presence felt in classes.
The remaining part of weak students is too small and at present
hardly any instructor would pitch his / her course at that level. On
the other hand, the present policy may introduce a large band of
weak students which no instructor can ignore. This would definitely
result in drop in the quality of education. It is the hypocrisy of
the highest order that on one hand the reservation for SC/STs is
considered a success and quoted for extension to OBCs, and on the
other hand, no hard data on the performance of these students is
available in the public domain. Some administrators I talked to
consider this data as sensitive! Analysis of where the reserved
category students go after graduation would be enlightening. I do
not have the sensitive data but my experience shows that most of
them either go to services like IAS/IES or to the public sector
companies. Normally this choice of careers by IIT graduates should
be a matter of satisfaction except that both these entries are again
using the reservation quota. Is it empowerment or crutches for life?

In this whole episode, the most stunning news for me was when the
Hon'ble minister announced increase in intake to compensate for the
reservations. This would amount to nearly 56% overall increase in
undergraduate intake in the IITs. This showed complete ignorance of
what makes IIT undergraduate education tick. There are few
Institutions in the world where undergraduate students get to
interact one to one and so freely with such high-caliber faculty.
Students are advised on courses in small groups, interact over
hostel dinners, go on industrial trips and finally carry out a well
supervised project. Every undergraduate student does an
intensive "novel" project either individually or in groups of two
and he/she is effectively "supervised" by a faculty member. Many of
them result in publications. This system evolved when the student-
faculty ratio was 6:1 and is getting strained at the seams when it
has reached 12:1. In some disciplines like Computer Sciences and
Electrical Engineering where market competition is heavy, it has
already gone to 20:1 and above. Though currently producing excellent
results, it is a highly non-scalable mechanism. Intake increase on
this scale, when effectively faculty strengths in key areas are
decreasing could sound a death-knell to one of our few international
brand names.

I have a poser for Prof. Jayati Ghosh, my well renowned colleague
from JNU and a member of the knowledge commission. She has justified
reservations in IITs based on the poor ranking of IITs
internationally. Her argument is anyway these Institutions are not
great, why they should crib about the quality of intake. She nowhere
states that any of the 400+ odd Institutions worldwide which are
ranked above IITs have achieved their status through reservations.
In that case all Tamil Nadu Engineering Colleges with 69%
reservation for decades (openly defying the Supreme Court suggested
norm of 50%) now should be at the top.

Postscript: Finally, I would like to seek opinion on the composition
of our next Olympics team. We have admittedly done much poorer in
sports than education. Should our next Olympics team be chosen on
caste basis or perhaps with adequate representation to athletes
aged 40+ who are at present completely unrepresented? After all we
do not have much to lose as we only win one bronze medal in
alternate Olympics. I would no longer be surprised if some future
Sports Minister considers caste based quotas for our national
cricket team. After all that would be worth a few votes and the
nation would have been well prepared by then to cheer only for its
own caste brethren!

To: President Of India
Following are the problems because of the Reservations in Private Sector:
1. Talented people will not get good position. So they will get migrated to other countries.
Causing India loosing the Talent.
2. No new MNC will enter India. Becoz they won't spare employees without Talent unlike our Govt Companies.
Causing Unemployment in India.
3. Existing Indian/MNC companies will stop their units and will slowly migrate to other countries where they will get benefit.
Causing degradation of development.
4. People will fight each other on caste basis.
Causing violation in India. No peace can exist.

These are the major factors which will affect the nation.
I request you to please stop the proposal of Reservations in Private Sector. Also try to remove them from all the sectors. Please make the reservations only based on the economic status rather than caste.
Some political leaders to cash the vote bank are trying to put reservations based on caste and religion in private sectors too.

Please stop this and make India as a developing nation.

Sincerely,

Hi Guys ..All of u r doing great work...But still I think the movement is not completely organised...Instead of different cities organising diff. activities on diff days, why not organise things on national scale (even international), in which all the anti-reservation activists would show their strength together at the same time on same day..Remember that on May 01 (May Day) workers all over the world struck work simultaneously...we need to do somehting like that on national scale...
2)To achieve what I said above, we have to organise ourselves...First Associationwise, then citiwise and then on national scale...The 1st step is to elect core group of 5 peaople at each of these levels...Honestly speaking I myself want to actively participate in these campaign not just in action but also in planning, but I don't know who is planning body...Please throw some light on this, so that we can come together and shake the whole nation from deep slumber...

Caste based reservation and tushtikaran policies should be completely removed from India as they are spreading the poison of inequality in the Indian Society. What right did they have to touch the sacred Constitution when it was clearly written in the constitution that the reservations should be only for ten years. Are these people think themselves bigger than Dr. Ambedkar? Bhrast log tushtikaran ka jahar pilakar bharatiya samaj ke saath 'divide and rule" ki neeti apna rahe hain. Throw them out!

As told in the online interview , if Arjun Singh claims not knowing the ABCs about the education pattern in OBCs, what he is doing in Indian politics since last so many years, only managing party funds. What the opposition parties doing till now. Varun Gandhi, wake up! The Indian youths will be behind you. Reservation & Rising Prices are today's burning issues.Corrupt politicians are involved in rigging the stock market and commodities market. Inhonen Garibon ke Aate Dal ko bhi nahin chhoda , usme bhi satta (speculation) chalakar garib aur kisanon ko aur garib aur backward bana rahe hain, aur backward classes ko aage lane ki sirf batein karte hain. All BCs and OBCs please beware!

ACHIEVEMENTS OF UPA GOVT IN TWO YEARS........

PLEASEEEEEEEEEE READ THIS

Friends,

Is this just the reservations that are bringing our Nationalism out today or is there something deep rooted within us since long that wants to come out. Isn't something simmering on since long enough thats talking this all. Isn't that, we, in our own country feel persued, prosecuted, being denied the right things. Politicians making a mokery of the system to suit their needs. Even after paying our taxes sincerely, we can't even get a proper electric/water supply and we claim to be on the threshold of modern age.

Just read my post which I wanted to share with all my nationalist brothers and sisters.

Let me remind you some of the events that took place since this UPA Govt has assumed office:

1. Removing Anupam Kher unceremoniously as the Censor Board chairman. He was branded RSS man by Lefties? Is that democratic?

2. Removing NDA appointed Governors just after assuming Govt.

3. Re-writing history books. - Long live the Arjun, who is doing a Duryodhan's job, so that you only get the perspective they want you to know. Btw, if you are not aware, most of historians in the panels that draft history books are patrons of Left parties.

4. Union Cabinet minister gone underground - Shibu Sorent has murder charges and FIR pending. Imagine a cabinet level minister gone missing. These are the kind of people who make laws for us?

5. Democratically elected Goa State Govt is made scapegoat and thrown out by cheating by Governor/Centre.

6. Bihar election results are declared null and void by Governor Buta Singh and see what Supreme court delivered on it. Still this man took the salute on 26 Jan, which is a shame for us. Tax payers like you and me bear the 200 crore cost of unwanted election.

7. Natwar Singh, Sonia Gandhi are named beneficiary in Oil for Food bribe scam by UN's Volkers report. Natwar gone, she is still in there as the chairperson for the remote controlled PM. The commission set up to probe it will never be complete.

8. Bofors- The guns that will never fall silent. - Mr Q in Italy is helped by Ms Gandhi to get away with millions of Tax payers money stached away in UK banks and how they make us believe that it was CBI that did this and the Law minsister, Ms Gandhi and PM knew nothing. Can you buy this argument.?

9. Reservation for Muslims in AP. High court, Supreme court came down heavily on the Govt. Still they are finding out ways to get around this and continue appeasement policy. Are they secular..? Btw, OBC reservations do cover muslims and Dalit christians? Why they converted to Christianity, if they still wanted a Dalit tag?

10. Minority status for AMU. Even after receiving hammering from Supreme Court. The recent AICC convention has shown how the Govt is defiant in taking in the ruling and is still going ahead with its plans.

11. Bangladesh in Assam - The demographics of the state has changed virtually with the unabated influx of Bangladeshi's. The supreme court scrapped the IMTD act (Applicable in Assam only) - which allowed free home to Bangladeshi. Now with that act gone, the central Govt is setting in a tribunal under Foreigners Act to allow people to prove that they are not foreigners. How difficult is it to get a ration card in India..?? Rs 500-1000. Thats the way the Govt is planning to allow these people to stay in Assam and make one more Kashmir for us.

12. The Govt. tinkered with the idea of compiling data on Muslims in Army. About their field positions, social background and other such info. Isn't it making tasks simpler for likes of ISI. They will get a compiled report. Armed forces so far have been apolitical and based on merit.

13. Scorpene Submarine Scandal - Known commission is to the tune of 800 crore. Could we not have more IIM's, IIT's and AIIMS with the whole deals money which is Rs 18,500 crore? Do we need submarines or more schools/colleges? Ironically, it may end up in yet another schools scam.

14. Office of Profit - Did we want a re-election in Rae-Bareily? Why is our hard earned money wasted on such events. Madam Gandhi started this by targeting Jaya Bacchan and when she saw fire engulfing her, she became socalled ""Supreme"" by Sacrificing her MP seat, just to re-enter parliament wasting tax payers money and what happened to the Office of Profilt thing. Simple, the Govt just modified constitution to suit their needs. Exclude all such posts that UPA ministers/MP's are holding. Is this not killing the constitution and using parliament to suit their own needs. - Be it Congress, "Moral High" Lefties or BJP's

15. Delhi Demolitions - MCD/Politicians collude with builders - allow rampant violations of Land use. Shut their eyes on illegal constructions mushrooming all over Delhi. When the High court goes after the illegal encroachments/buildings, Our honourable MP's (ALL OF THEM) pass a bill putting demolitions on hold. Are they doing Public service or dis-service??

16. Mandal - II - We all know what this is all about. Driving a wedge between society. Govt could not get reservations for muslims, "Dalit Christians" and ofcourse their OBC vote bank. Who is benefiting by this reservations? People in AP, Maharashtra, Orrisa are committing suicide because they can't support their families. Can they afford lacs of rupees as fee for IIM's and AIIMS? Its the creamy effluent layer in OBC's that is benefitted by this policy.

Btw, remember the previous Congress Govt..? Narisimha Rao. Some of their achievements
- Security Scam/ Harshad Mehta
- JMM bribery case for saving Govt in parliament. (Shibu Soren)
- St Kitts Forgery case (Lakhu Bhai Pathak)
- Sugar Scam
- Coal Scam
- Urea Scam
- UTI scam
- Petrol Pump Allocation Scam

This is what I could gather from my short memory. Almost every ministry had a scam to its credit and even the PM was not spared. Accused by Harshad Mehta and Lakhu Bhai for having received money. The scams during that period were to the tune of Rs 1300 crore (including the famous Laloo Fodder Scam) and where are we today..? Nothing happened. Just commissions constituted, with no outcome. Was even a single politician prosecuted.

This is the report card of the UPA Govt in just over two year. Imagine what Congress has been doing around for past 50 years it has ruled India. Its just that now we have these mediums to share our thoughts and view points.

Thats why we need movie's like RDB to rekindle our senses and make us stir up our lost memories about freedom fighters other than the Nehru/Gandhi Parivaar and before another Gandhi (rahul) is super-imposed on to this nation. We need to get up..

Was wondering whom the newly developed airports would be named after.. Which Gandhi this time..??

Please think brothers.. The English left shores 60 years back, but they left the Italians and Congress for us to deal with. Think....!! Help this nation rid itself from dynasty rules, corrupt politicians and people with ideologies which are regressive for the nation (Left parties). The Left parties which today claim to represent the poor lot have their masters in China. If anyone remembers, these are the same people who were busy raising funds for China during the 1962 Indo-China war.

Keep this list updated by adding where ever the Govt falters and read it before you go out to vote next time.

PLEASE VOTE - thats the only way we can bring in about changes, if not by jumping into the world of politics.

PLEASE CIRCULATE AMONG YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILY - PLEASE DO SO
If you cant email it, print it and hand it out to people


Cheers Pals

whts da deal in the south? 5/21/2006 3:27 PM
im a medical student from chennai studyin in a private clge and the lack of response in my city disgusts me.1 reason could be that since already 69% reservation is implemented here most students in all clges have come thro reservation n they obsyly wont b against it.but this kinda selfish i dun give a shit abt my country attitude scares me....

unfortunately tamil nadu is the future of india if this new reservation comes in2 force.n leme tell u ppl sayin reservation has wrked in tn are simply put-lying.it is one of the states most divided on caste lines.caste based politics is rampant n discrimination occurs at every possible level.its a myth dat reservation has wrked...it has only sharpely divided the society futher on archaiac caste lines.

n its not surprising that official figures say chennai has the highest no. of gratuades leavin to the us...n again its no shock that the line outside the american councellate is ever growin...the so called upper caste are outcastes in their own states n they have to leave their country to be able 2 fulfil their potential.

il jus like to say jus cuz i belong to da so called upper class upper caste section doesnt mean that this country belongs to me any less n vice versa,its painz me to see any citizen of this country treated as 2nd class,this kinda reverse discrimination is 1ly goina create more strife and a vicious cycle where different sectionz feel victamised alternatively.

but unfortunately an unhappily n angry electorate is wht all politicianz are looking for n we cant let them win!

I am very happy and still very sad, happy because now whenever i'll see a doctors my respect for them will be much much more and sad because of the lip support given by my fellow IIT Alumni and general public.
To my medico friends and other students, keep it up now it seems that you are the only guys who has guts and believe me the support you have is much much more than what you can see .
Only problem is most of us are very much self centered and tries to duck our responsibility but we still know you are RIGHT and doing service to the nation .This movement is growing and more and more people are realizing how much strength people voice have .
My appeal is let us plan this movement properly..
1) On websites we have to have links like How can I support
2) Collection of funds so that we can take this movement to every village and city of this country.

Huge number of people are their to support us but don’t have time or for some other factors cant be with us on streets . They need concrete plan to go ahead and lets provide them one.

For any help contact me 9873266667

I fully agree with Mona please launch a website and register a society where we can support you financialy from USA in fact others from overseas. It is very important at this point to include all other colleges not just medical.Remember medical service is very important for the society so if this strike is prolonged it will loose its strength as the patients and relatives will get against the movement. Before that happens think about running the emergency services with appointed doctors in rotation before the pro reservation cash this situtation. we all are with you. If the student leaders can get the copy of original constitution and show that to every one . It was proposed for a fixed time frame and that time is already passed.
Remember the calculation which govt is proposing . For example you have 100 seats 50% reserved which is 50 to each group now if the seats are increased for example 150 in that case 75 seats to both groups . look at this situtation there is significant increase in reservation seats because the way population is increasing the seats should be increased any way and if that is done than there is no need to increase the reservation as reserved seats will increse automatically with total increase in the number of seats. All youth are same at professional level and the competetion should be fair. The new poilicy can be a cut off percentage for getting admission in professional colleges beyond any reservation for anyone. How many reserved candidates who score good in merit apply in open quota , you can find many but can you find anyone from open quota applying for a seat in reserved category.
Open competetion is what India needs now. have national central exams for all professional courses and decide the cutoff . this cuttoff should be the prerequsite for admission because this will decide whether you are worth for the profession or not. now above this cutoff see how many reserve candidates are there and than priority can be given to the reserved class who are above the cuttoff and according to there quota. If it is not filled up than it goes in open quota.

It is very important at this point to include all other colleges not just medical colleges.Medical service is very important for the society so if this strike is prolonged it will loose its strength and impact as the patients and relatives will get against the movement and the government and pro reseration group will take advantage from this. Before that happens think about running the emergency services with your own selectd doctors in rotation before the pro reservation cash this situtation. We all are with you.
If the student leaders can get the copy of original constitution and show that to every one . It was proposed for a fixed time frame and that time is already passed.
Remember the calculation which govt is proposing .
For example you have 100 seats 35% reserved and 65% open . So the seats are 35:65. Now if the Res is 50 % it will be 50:50 that means 15 seats increased in reservation and 15 seats decreased in open.
Now if the seats are increased for example 150 and reservation increased to 50 % in that case 75 seats to both groups . So there is only 25 seats increased to open and 40 seats increased in reservation group. Look at this situtation there is significant increase in reservation seats.
Now because the way population is increasing the seats need to be increased any way and if that is done than there is no need to increase the reservation as reserved seats will increase automatically with total increase in the number of seats.

All youth are same at professional level and the competetion should be fair.
The new proposed poilicy can be a minimum cut off percentage for getting admission in professional colleges beyond any reservation for anyone.

How many reserved candidates who score good in merit apply in open quota , you can find many but can you find anyone from open quota applying for a seat in reserved category.

Open competetion is what India needs now.

Have national centralised exams for all professional courses and decide the cutoff . This cuttoff should be the pre-requsite for admission because this will decide whether you are worth for the profession or not.
Now above this cutoff see how many reserve candidates are there and than priority can be given to the reserved class who are above the cuttoff and according to there quota. If it is not filled up than it goes in open quota.

We need to come out with a solution ourselves otherwise government is just splitting two groups and if that happens we do not gain anything . This is going to be worse than religious war. Finally we all have to work together for the country. So lets come out with solution . Stick on cuttoff which is common for all open and reserve and than it is a win win situtation for all.
Government will not take the reservation back as its bullet which had left the gun . If they do so they lose the vote bank. So please come on something which makes competion fair and what we need is high cutoff to be eligible for reservation.

Jawahar Lal Nehru wrote on the 27th of June 1961, to the Chief Ministers of that time. He said, "I dislike any kind of reservation. If we go in for reservations on communal and caste basis, we will swamp the bright and able people and remain second rate or third rate." This way, he added, "Lies not only folly, but also disaster.".

Now the congress is comletely forgetting that.

The repercussions of this bill going through will be huge. The one thing which most people are not considering is the extent of fragmentation this will cause. Its not just dividing India into the Sc/STs, the OBCs or the Upper Caste. Not so far in the future, you will have a "leader" emerge in Bihar who demands that there should be a quota within the quota for Yadavs. His counterpart in Rajasthan will make a similar demand for Jats. And they will both win. Once the OBCs have been split into hundreds of different subgroups, there will be a split in the subgroup itself. This will go down to the level of the individual. This is how parties like the Left, RJD and SP have maintained their grip over power.

The extent of claims and counterclaims that have been made in this debate reaaly makes me sick. A politician claims that reservations have worked in the south and that quota students score only 1 or two marks less than general category students in the entrace exams. Others claim that quota students are outperforming general category students. On the other side, the anti-reservationists say that the reserved category performs miserably. In a political establishmenr where the Government jumps at every opportunity to set up a judicial review committee, why are they so reluctant to look for the facts. Its not like we are demanding the abolition of the existing system. But why cant the Government for once, set up a comittee which really serves a purpose.

i propose a few other reservations (although I never knew OBCs were ever discriminated against).

Since there is mutual discrimination among north and south indians, I propose reservation for north Indians in south India and for south indians in north india.

Since the north east has been discriminated against, let us have reservation in the rest of india for north-eastern people. And vice versa.

Since mumbaikars discriminate against non-mumbaikars, we should have reservation for non-mumbaikars in mumbai / maharashtra. Ditto for kolkata / WB - let's have reservation for non-bengalis in west bengal.

Since Kashmir has discriminated aginst pandits, let us have reservation for pandits in Kashmir.

Since villagers are discriminated against in cities, let us have reservations for villagers in cities.

Since we have been discriminated against by the British during their rule, let us also ask for reservations for Indians in the UK. As far as the discrimination under muslim rule is concerned, let us ask for reservations for indians in countries like Afghanistan and Iran as well. For fairness' sake, let us also include France and Portugal.

Please think of some other reservations also that are liable to bring 'equality' and end 'discrimination' in the world.

I want to mention that I was not very much impressed with the energy level of the people.Around half of the people were appealing to the other half that we should be silent and not shout out slogans.The rally came to an abrupt end without any discussions taking place.
Guys I want to say that if we dont extend the boundaries (Here i dont mean break them) I dont think we are violating any rules.
We must be more enthusiastic and determined to thwart away the evil face of reservation that is creeping into our education system.

We have been divided, again and again, on basis on not only religio n and caste, but also language, idealogies and reginal identities. When the communists banned English in West Bengal 30 years ago, they single handedly wiped out the potential of an entire generation. When the south parties insist on regional language as the medium of education, they stifle the chances that people of those states have of competing on a global stage.

Respected doctors
please dont be so adamant on your stands because the manner in which you are organizing the anti-reservation stir will actually lead to hardening of the opposition also.
India does not constitute of doctors alone there are hundreds and thousands of people, who are biding their time, so the issue gets resolved peacefully.
The govt has also agreed that the general seats wont be affected, than what is the problem.
Does this mean that upper castes want to maintain a monopoly on these elite professions.
Please see the other side of the story and go beyond the entire merit debate.
The OBCs and backward castes are dismayed with the kind of behaviour put on display.
If the medicos refuse to see reason than it very likely that lower caste people would also come on street. And mind you when this happens than a mindless blood bath is ensured.

Bahujans ready for street battle

OUR CORRESPONDENT
Bangalore: Upper caste medical college students, who have grown fat on our sweat and blood, have come to the street to fight our human rights (reservations).

Their opposition to reservations to Backward Castes in higher education remind us the 1991 violent anti-Mandal war and violence launched by the same well-fed forces in Delhi.

Editor’s house attacked: Our Editor had just then shifted to Delhi, taken up a rented flat in Vasant Vihar and started publishing DV when Prime Minister V.P. Singh suddenly announced implementation of the Mandal Commission Report. That triggered student violence. It began in Delhi University, and spread to JNU where the Dalit students became the target.

Though Mandal report had nothing to do with Dalits but only BCs, the victims of upper caste violence were the Dalits­— not BCs.

Four JNU Dalit students had taken shelter in his flat and that made the upper caste students to attack the Editor’s house. Doors were broken open, and DV and books were thrown out.

The Editor was not in the flat. When he came in the night, doors were wide open and the upper caste neighbours were enjoying his agony.

“National” newspapers, however, put out false reports, a self-immolation was staged by pushing a BC boy into a fire lit opposite the All-India Inst. of Medical Sciences junction.
There was curfew. The whole of Delhi was forcibly closed down.

Dalits defend Mandal:

The upper castes were on the rampage. The Central Govt. itself became helpless. The artificially manufactured upper caste agitation brought down the V.P. Singh Govt. itself.
And in disgust and sheer helplessness, the Editor wound up his office after suffering over Rs. 1 lakh loss and went back to Bangalore as he could not bring out DV which was burnt in the JNU Campus.

The beauty of the whole drama was though the Mandal was to benefit the BCs they only attacked the Dalits at the instigation of upper castes.
But it was the Dalits who fought back and defended the Mandal report. It was the Dalits who suffered for the BCs.

Hate as staple food:

The BCs were sleeping. The vigilant and cunning Brahminical people took advantage of the BC weakness and made BCs to attack Dalits. And thus they succeeded in making brothers fight brothers.

In the latest anti-BC agitation by the upper caste boys and girls, once again the BCs are mum.

Instead of holding rallies in support of Arjun Singh and taking the upper caste boys head on, there is total silence on the part of BCs as this is written. We want to impress upon the BCs that they cannot win their human rights without fighting, suffering, dying and sacrificing.

Dalits will definitely come in support of BCs though BCs never supported us in our struggle.

India’s road to social justice is only through caste war. The upper castes hate us only because of our caste. Such a caste hatred is centuries old.
In spite of Western education they continue to live in their little world where their staple food is hate. So we cannot expect them to change.
In fact the more educated are more aggressive and more violent.

BCs have to get ready for the caste war and the Dalits will be ever ready to support them. The upper castes have to be confronted and countered.

Both in population and our physical strength, we can finish them.
Justice and Truth are on our side. And we have nothing to fear. What we lack is imagination, proper strategies and tactics.

In the coming days there will be more violence and we should be ready for street battles.

The government will not set up a commission on it's own as it will be seen as a move against the reserved castes( it's vote bank ) and also because Lalu Prasad Yadav( a member of the OBC lobby) is a major partner of the government, without whose support the government could collapse.The Congress government, if it has to survive has to ensure that it does not displease Lalu Prasad Yadav.The only way out is to get the courts to do the job. At the same time, we have to keep up with the protests and morchas and awareness campaigns on our part. We have to take the help of the lawyer community on this step which, I believe, is also supporting our campaign.

2) Collect funds (if required) for those students who may be removed from the hostels due to the strike.We have to ensure that they are given proper accomodation during the period of the strike. After all, we are all fighting for a just cause and we need to support everyone who is in this movement. I am absolutely sure that not just the student community, but also the public at large will come out in support and help us in our fund collection drive. Also, this collection drive will generate more public awareness about the entire issue.

3) Take out morchas every Saturday/Sunday in all cities so that even working professionals/ housewifes/school-students can attend the protest march. Taking part in morchas on week-days is difficult for working professionals like me.After all, our intention is to make this a mass movement of the public at large.So we have to take out morchas on days when it is most convenient for the maximum number of people to attend.

mineguruji,
You musr understand that the merit debate is only side side of the picture. I have seen OBC students so intelligent that I could never, in my sane mind question their merit. When we say that merit will be hurt, we do not only mean merit in deserving students. There will be a lot of OBC studnts who would like to seek the easier way out even though they are perfectly capable of making it on their own. Also, we would like to knwo when someone will be held accountable for the condition that certain classes of the society are in? Why shouldn't the government be held responsible if even one seat in any college goes vacant? We deal in facts, but are not aware of all of them. But the Government deals entirely in rhetoric. The 2% cess has generated a revenue of 20000 crores for the government in the last two years. What has the government done with this money? You must also realize one thing. most of the people who have joined this movement have nothing personal to gain from it. I have already passed out of college. I have nothing to gain, in the traditional sense.

we should ask govt why there is no reservation in army and other armed forces ?
after all if govt see reservation as only mean of upliftment of weaker section then there should be reservation in N.D.A and I.M.A.
also.
why is govt not ready to take 50%
of officers in army from weaker section ?
answer is because govt cannot compromise with nations defence
but this same govt is ready to compromise with lives of general public by reserving seats in hi
gher education.

The idea of a Public Interest Litigation
(PIL) someone proposed is long term and
effective. That does not mean we do not
continue with these protests.
PIL is a legally accepted way
of bringing the government to task. If
the government has sat of things for the past 30-40 years, then it cannot pass the
buck onto any collective protest and related matters. I suggest that the PIL be based on the government encouraging casteism which is banned by our constitution. Hit the rascal point blank so that doing it once would be
sufficient....for eliminating the rascal.

We fight and hurt them politically. The medicos have, because of the inherent good inside them, set up parallel OPD's to help patients. The Government knows this and tries to exploit it. Close down everything. Bring the entire medical system to a complete halt. On the side of us professionals, we can raise funds and we can boost numbers in street protests. You probably wont be able to air any ad on any indian channel. rope in CNN BBCWORLD. oay them to show what is being done in India. We have to pick our opponents carefully. Isolate Arjun Singh. Tell the Government we wont deal with him in any way. Make the Congress feel he is an increasing liability. Try and get to Sonia Gnadhi. Get the middlemen like Pranab Mukherjee out of the way. We may not have much political power but we can have incredible lobbying power.

I think now the time has come that this government should go. They are hell bent on dividing this country.
What kind of social justice are they talking about? In spite of being in power for the most part of post independence India this government still cannot provide quality primary education. The state of primary schools in India is known to all.

For the 'Black Day' protest today...I have prepared a Pamphlet and I am going to distribute copies of it to people ...The contents r as below:
YOUTH FOR EQUALITY

All of us are aware of the ongoing agitation against the reservation for OBCs proposed to be introduced by Arjun Singh, HRD Minister, UPA Govt. ‘Youth For Equality’ is an organization, which has been formed to coordinate the movement against proposed reservation. Whether it is the Medical students of Mumbai, who courageously bore the brunt of Police atrocities or AIIMS students who are on hunger strike for last 9 days or the IITians and other students all over the country, who are risking their life and career to get justice, their efforts are truly commendable. The Govt. has now started resorting to cheap blackmailing. The striking Medicos of AIIMS have been served notices to vacate hostels. All this is being done to suppress the fight against Injustice. But, the Govt. fails to realize that the youth has now awakened and the small spark has now grown into an inferno. Forget not that in 1975 (Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi) it was the youth only who changed the course of Indian politics when the then power became power corrupt. The youth then played its role, today it is our turn. Can we stand up and rise to the occasion? Can we give our future generations a just and fair society? Can we for once drop our ‘Chalta Hai’ attitude? If your answer is ‘Yes’, join this movement.

By youth we do not mean people who are young at age. Students, Housewives, Senior Citizens, Working Professionals, Entrepreneurs everyone who feel for this cause, we need their support. After all, ‘Age is an issue of mind over matter, if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.’

Today, this 22nd day of May, 2006, UPA Govt. has completed its 2 years in office. Youth For Equality appeals to the entire nation to observe this day as a ‘Black Day’ by switching-off their lights for 10 minutes starting from 8:00 PM and show their support and solidarity for the movement.

For those who just might be having the slightest of doubts about our success, I would like to say this. The fact that the Government proposed to increase the number of seats and introduce reservations in a phased manner is a HUGE victory for us. Because in the history of this country, the Government has never buckled in to a group that did not affect its vote bank. It did not do so because of any sudden change of heart, but because of the realities on ground. In a country of 100 crore people, if the medical fraternity decides to stop working, the impact on the elctorate can be catastrophic. Every time the Government lies about the strike coming to an end today is a signal that they are getting jittery. The fact that they threatened to evacuate doctors from their hostels shows they are nervous. A crowd of 5000 people in a country of 100 crore cannot make much of a difference unless they are the backbone of the entire system.

The following excerpt has been taken from ndtv.com:


Expressing opposition

Meanwhile, two members of the Sam Pitroda-led National Knowledge Commission have resigned over the ongoing controversy.

Pratap Bhanu Mehta and Andre Beteille have resigned on grounds that the government is not open to any discussion on reservations.

Speaking out against the proposal for OBC quotas, Mehta, Member-Convenor of the Commission, said the quotas violate the cardinal principles of a knowledge-based society.

He said the government's measures are not based on assessment of effectiveness, and the proposal is incompatible with the freedom and diversity of institutions.

He added such a move would thoroughly politicise the education process, injecting an "insidious poison" that will harm the nation's long-term interest. The measures, he said, will not achieve social justice.

Beteille too said in his resignation letter that the quota proposal is a cynical misrepresentation of the recent provisions of the Constitution.

Pointing out that the caste quotas are not required by the Constitution, he said any such policy would be unwise.

I feel there is major improvement required in the education system of India. Apart from the quota thing i wish India should be quota free as soon as possible. The Education for economically weaker should be fully funded by Central Govt. We guys are paying so high taxes. Most of us guys posting here belong to middle segment of the society. Have all completed our studies in private schools and struggling hard to get into any of the govt colleges (MAMC, DCE, NSIT, AIIMS, HINDU, SOMAIYA, NITIE, IIT) why not amity or other pvt. universities. So Most important is to bring this point forward to bring a revolution in govt schools. If govt can bring such a drastic change in giving admission and scholarships to so called backward classes(which i dont prefer to seggregate). First motive should be to make education free. Promote Govt Schools. Pump in teachers. Keep check keep tracks on teachers and education standards. Free Books. Improved Libraries.
Also i heard the Finance Minister said yesterday the reservation thingworked in the south, so it will work there as well. This much atleast i have experienced in my life at 23 years of age that system is not a nut or a bolt or a RAM of PC which can be plugged everywhere and anywhere. Systems need to be customized according to the situations. They might need to be modulated on different frequency depending on region.
I have been tracking the whole issue closely on NDTV some one from IIM said open a new Reserved Category IIM. Phuleez We should not let this happen, we are not to promote castism, but to erase this word and make it history.

A suggestion:
Coming back to Education issue: Govt policy of Each one teach one doesnt seems to be working. I have not taught myself any underprivileged. A Major change is required in the whole education. Each one of us B.TEch. B.E, MBBS, B.A, B.Com, CA, MBA, B.Sc, M.Sc, MCA. to name any Graduate or Post Graduate Level course should have compulsory module to teach in some govt. school as assistants or trainee teachers.
Everyone who needs there degree have to teach in any of govt schools in there respective states.
Benefits:
1. Those places where there is lack of teacher every-year thousands and lakhs of people graduate so more teacher(though temporary ones)
2. Individual like me and you see the situation around hence i feel i would try to be more responsible Indian citizen.
3. Some pay should be there from govt. to these temporary teachers (stipend) which motivates them to work as a govt. trainee employee. There should be a certificate issued to every candidate without which degree shouldn’t be considered completed.
4. A individual who teaches obviously for those people who have some hesitation to give lectures and can improve interpersonal skills.

bhai logo!
as govt is telling that general category goys interest will be taken into account.As Arjun singh says"guys who are agitating for reservation policy roll bak are also our kids we cant' do anything for their disinterest"
aur bhaiyo wat do u think abt people getting MBBS degree from private college only on the basis of money,and they build up a multifacility hospital also which accomodates best dr from premier institutes and that guy head them all..
to aap iske vare mein kuch khaenge?
bhaiyo aur bahano due to reservation many deprived families are finding their status in hindu society and according to a survey conducted by national human welfare commission most of poor belongs to obc and sc/st so giving them opprtunity through reservation is purely not a politics agenda..its towards the slogan of congress ka hath aam aadmi ke sath....i really appreciate the move of the UPA govt.
when govt. is giving these poor and deprived(socially and economically) to aap log inke pait per laat kyoun maarte ho?

Taking KALAM's permission for suicide ?

Instead let us politely ask him to open his mouth.
Did he not talk to 1,00,000 children the year before he got elected ?
How are we going to achieve his Vision 2020 ?

Dear Mr. Bhanu Pratap Singh, the reason is simple. Equal opportunity for all does not mean that SC/ST/OBC candidates be denied of their entry in premier institutions. It just means they should compete with General category candidates for education. There is no question of "pet pe laat maarna" as you have suggested. It is just that a meritorious candidate should get the seat instead of non-meritorious candidate. If SC/ST/OBC candidates have merit in them, nobody can deny them, right? -NEO.

Friends

on 21st may 2006, a group of 23 students from Delhi university, J.N.U.., and Professionals went to President's House and filed a petition appealing the president to allow themselves to end their lives in case this bill is implemented.

This is historic, it is first time in the world history when such a large group has requested " mercy - death" sanction from the state head.

we appeal all of you to read that appeal and if you feel the same , then please do forward similar requests to President of India.




21 May 2006

The Honorable President,

Republic of India



Respected First Citizen of India


Sub: Appeal for permission for mercy-killing of self


The "Reservation Policy", as being proposed by the Government of India, attempts to divide the people of India in name of caste. It puts a permanent deathblow to our dream of a unified India where all are equal. It also severely jeopardizes our future in terms of earning a rightful career and livelihood.



We want to emphasize that the government is obliged by constitution to not only protect our right to life, right to education and right to livelihood, but also the right to live with dignity.



Following the examples of the great builders of our nation, we have always learnt that a life without dignity is worse than death. With implementation of the proposed reservation policy, this hope of living with dignity will be destroyed forever.



Thus, we, as law-abiding citizens of India, seek your permission to allow us to end our lives through mercy-killing, in the event of implementation of the proposed reservation policy.



Thanking you,





Yours respectfully



The Undersigned

This thing about the reservation working in the south is false. What happened in the south is discrimination and not reservation where only a very small section of the population was in the general category. Thanks to the rest of India this small section could be absorbed in institutions outside the states.

I strongly support the students movement across the country against the policy of reservation being forcefully introduced by the UPA government.We will not give up until this is stopped.If we do so it is as good as giving up the country and concept of India!

Going through the interview I could only feel that he has only Government and Parliament as his shield to protect him against the stupid, orthodox decision he has taken.

He dint have answers to any of the questions. What sort of minister he is that he doesn't even have that much of farsightedness to judge as to how much time will be required for setting up new infrastructures and recruitments.



He is a bull headed fellow, adamant on his thoughts,

Taking it against his ego to rethink upon what he spoke.



If this thing happens to us, tomorrow any Tom Dick and Harry like him will

Come and start taking any useless decisions and hamper our very future.



Some people think uselessly from their less used minds to take useless decisions.

NATIONAL ANTHEM IDEA... IS REALLY GREAT...
CONSIDERING:
IF SOMEONE DISTURBS YOU WHILE SINGING NATIONAL ANTHEM THAT PERSON IS ACTUALLY INSULTING THE ANTHEM AND IS SUBJECT TO PROSECUTION.
ALL ARE SUPPOSED TO STAND STILL WHILE SINGING NATIONAL ANTHEM OR WHILE A NATIONAL ANTHEM IS BEING SUNG.
GREAT IDEA TO NAIL THOSE POLICEMEN AND POLITICIANS...

The Congress-led UPA Government is completing two years in power today. The former Finance Minister (during NDA Government), Yashwant Sinha, always said that our country is in the grip of an economic depression but he forgot that students' depression can create a crisis worse than that. The NDA Government had to face the music in the year of 2004. When the Congress-led UPA Government came to power in 2004, we, the youths, were experiencing strange excitement and enthusiasm and were expecting that something is going to happen in the future. But our experience with the UPA Government has been rather negative. A bitter sense of humiliation, harassment and frustration has filled young people in the wake of the proposed reservation policy of the Central Government. The reservation policy being introduced by the Government is reminiscent of the British Raj aiming at dividing the country on caste and communal lines. Any movement against the injustice being meted out to meritorious students in the name of reservations is being suppressed by lathis and police might. Are we living in a democracy? The Hon'ble HRD Minister Arjun Singh has spoken that those who speak against reservations should abide by the Constitution. One must remind him that Constitution was being framed by the people and for the people. No Constitution deprives any movement for education and jobs solely on merit. Each citizen of this country has freedom of expression. There is a need for an open debate behind the rationale of enhancing reservation quotas and the injustice being meted out to merit. We acknowledge the right of the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes to be able to have access to formal education and development. But the Government, instead of equipping them with education, is hell bent on merely providing reservation quotas for the OBC/SC/STs. Many people belonging to "socalled" backward castes in villages do not have access to basic primary education, sanitation and skilful employment. They are still being discriminated while a privileged few who have the resources, take advantage of such reservation quotas and gain entry into government jobs or higher education. The Government should honestly think as to why no real upliftment of the backward castes has happened despite imposing reservations over the last 58 years. The above reservations instead of bridging the gap between the haves and have-nots is deepening the divide between them and is poisoning the secular fabric of our country by depriving certain meritorious students from higher education and jobs. The politicians cutting across all political lines, are not concerned with the equipping of the backward castes with basic primary education and ensuring a level playing field for them, but merely announce reservation quotas which benefit a privileged few and seem to have fulfilled their promise of caste upliftment. As the elections in India is decided on caste and communal lines, votebank politics ensures the continuance of reservation quotas and neglect of merit. This spells doom for an emerging vibrant India as it deprives the meritorious students from deciding India's future. It is these students from the fields of engineering, medical, management and science who are going to shape the future vision of our country and not our tainted politicians. Reservations does not even help an OBC/SC/ST student, as there is always be a question mark over his talent, howsoever educated he may be, because the society may look down upon him as being benefited from quotas.

Everyone should be given equal access to participate in a 100 metre race. However, before the beginning of the race, u cannot have one person near the finishing line, while leaving the other one behind. Reservation quotas are like participating in a Formula One race, where the OBCs, SCs and STs hold the pole position, while the others occupy the last positions. In such a case, there is always a question mark over the winner of the race. The Government is now keen on taking up reservations in private sector too. A day will come when even hawking zones will be demarcated along caste lines. So the very purpose of reservations instituted by the Architect of the constitution Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar for unifying the backward castes alongwith the others is being defeated and it encourages further caste bias and disharmony.
The peaceful movement being organized by the medical students cannot be ignored by the Government and suppressed by lathis. 'A small movement today can spark off a major revolution which will ensure a vibrant and developed India, where each person irrespective of caste, creed, religion and community will have access to basic primary education, drinking water, sanitation and academic development solely on merit. There shall be no misgivings and disharmony among today's youth in their endeavour to integrate the various sections of our society in a bid to develop an unified India.'
Let us support the cause of an unified India and say 'No' to reservations.

Yours faithfully,

Anjani K. Tiwari,
