OBC Reservation: Knowledge is Powerless !

Just imagine this scenario:
Year 2020.

Dad: Show me your report card son.
Son: (with smiling face): Here it is daddy.
Dad: (frowned): WHATT ???? (yells and calls for the kid’s mom)
Mom:
What happened? Why are you yelling ?

(Dad passing on the report card to Mom, with a sight of disgrace on his face.)

Mom: Hey Bhagwaan (Oh God)! How did this happen? What will we do now ? (she is in shock !)
Son: Mommy ? Pappa ? What happened ? (lil kid with all the curiosity and surprised to core)
Dad: Who told you to get 98% and top the class ? (looks angry)
Mom: Honey, its ok, cool down ! I would call our TV cable guy and get some movie and cartoon network channels so that he can spend time on TV. How about buying him X-box and lots of games? He wont study and hopefully if God and luck is with us, he wont get high on merit in future.
Dad: Its so depressing you know r8? Remember when I got 98% in JEE, and still couldn’t get into IIT, I was so much depressed. I wished my DAD was OBC!

(Screen play: Myself)

This scenario is not so far from reality. Though seems little bit exaggerated, but hold on, is 49.5% reservation for OBC also not too much ?

Such cheap political strategies are so familiar, I am not shocked. But what concerns me the most and may be its more like a nightmare feel to me is that what about FUTURE ? My future, your future and the future generations to come! With India going-to-be a global power within the next few decades (that I strongly believe) we desperately need talented brains that can present a secured future to India as visioners. By further extending quota system into higher educational system we are restricting not only bright talent but also the growth of the country as whole. Not surprising then, do we see Indians leaving the country and becoming successful elsewhere in the world.

India has globally created an image as worlds most successful democratic and free nation. Democracy by all means sounds a perfect synonym for equality. Then why reservations and divide the youth? Reservation is the worst thing a country can do. India and China (our direct competitor I believe, and a threat) produces 6 times more engineers and scientist. Unlike India, majority of leaders in China and Japan are engineers or atleast well educated people, and not bunch of illiterates (Lalu) or bandits (Phoolandevi). Giving seats to SC is the worst things India can do. It is already so high. 22.5% is really high. Making it 49.5% means students with the best grades won\’t be able to get in IIT, IIM, AIIMS (the core to Indian knowledge hub ), etc. We can understand 5% reservations, but 49.5%? Intolerable !!! India is doing great, second to China in growth but this move will put India almost at the bottom in next 10 to 15 years.

Barkha Dutt (From NDTV): Reservations have become a joke. We all know the statistics. More than 80 per cent of Dalit students never make it past Class X; more than 80 per cent of the reserved seats in vocational institutes remain unused; and in engineering colleges it\’s even worse — more than 90 per cent of seats in the reserved category just lie empty. (Source: NDTV news )

I don’t have any grudge or hatred towards the OBC’s, but the government’s decision has given a spike�to discrimination. As a citizen of India everyone has equal rights to dream. Reservation in education is just killing those dreams of millions aspiring.

Any idea why not 49.5% reservation in our Defense?

I have full hopes, faith, sympathy and prayers for the protesters. May God give them all the strengths to fight strong and smart. Amen !
