Why do SC & ST candidates flaunt reserve?

Why do SC & ST candidates flaunt reserve?

To be clear, this is the definition of the word brag in English according to Google.

In my opinion, flaunting is a desperate attempt to get the attention of people who feel insecure about their status in society.

How do they flaunt SC / ST?

  • Do they put their JEE ranks or CAT percentiles on social media profiles?
  • Do they post the notes they get on social media and compare them with others?
  • Do they wear caste signs on their foreheads or threads around their bodies to indicate their reserve status?
  • Do they use special accents when speaking to indicate their caste or reserve status?
  • Do they indicate that or

  • Do you promote skin care products to change skin color to match theirs?
  • Do they ask self-promotion questions about how beautiful, smart, or hardworking they are?
  • Do they ask for the full name in an attempt to identify the breed?
  • Can you think of memes like 'Don't mess with me, I'm from the reserved category'?

Reality of Dalit discrimination in India

SC / ST are highly discriminated in India who often desperately try to hide their caste names, skin color, accent to match that of the privileged caste Indians in an attempt to blend in with this new world. This is to avoid caste supremacists.

Here is a video of what Dalits face and fear in their daily lives.

Video: Dalits are flogged mercilessly by privileged castes

Here are stories of discrimination faced by a Dalit in modern India.

In each of these incidents, the Dalits did not flaunt their caste, they were trying to hide it to escape discrimination.

Someone muttered 'Chamar'

I was born in Meerut into a Dalit family and I never knew what a caste was about until the day they called me chamar. I didn't understand why they called me that. In school, few students discriminated because of who we were. I still remember that a Brahmin boy asked me what my caste was. I spoke the truth: a Dalit. I still don't understand why he didn't believe me. He asked me to bring my caste certificate! it is as if they do not believe that we can be handsome, fair or polite. On the day of my father's retirement from work, my father did not receive a warm goodbye or reception compared to the other employee, who was also retiring on the same day. I felt a pang of discrimination when everyone was paying attention to the other employee and my father was standing there, with no one to join him. Someone even mumbled 'chamar'

It's the same in Nepal

I am an orthopedic surgeon from Nepal. I was born in a remote Nepalese village to an extremely poor family. My father plowed the landowners' land to feed his ten children. It is nothing less than a miracle and the grace of God that I was able to study in one of the best medical schools in Asia.

I am a cheerful person and I make friends easily. But being insulted, being beaten for no reason, having to wash off illnesses after eating in a hotel and not being able to enter the houses of higher caste friends was normal in our town. At ten I was selected to study with a full scholarship to study at a boarding school in a neighboring town. At one point in school, nearly forty of my classmates were not speaking to me. That is more than two-thirds of the total population. I was only 11 years old without any support. Thank God I fought against that and now I am a surgeon trained in one of the best centers in this region. I never lied about my caste, but it made me feel miserable. I still have patients asking about my caste. It is a very common question in Nepal. I smile at them and tell them that I am 'untouchable' and if they still want to be operated on by me. There is almost always an awkward silence.

My parents had to say "You are my mother, my father, you are my supremacy and I bow down to you" to 'higher' caste people

"Bhujang? Bhujang mhanje kon? (Who are the Bhujang?)

If I had a penny for every time someone asked me this question, I'd be so rich that I wouldn't have to put up with all these questions anymore ... such illusions.

I grew up as a child raised in a "normal" convent. Oblivious to castes, religion, and all the so-called social ills that children don't normally care about. Now that I think about it, I have a vivid memory of teachers walking into my fifth standard class for a kind of convenient SC / ST roll call and announcing 'all those kids raise your hands'. Sure enough, there would be 5 or 6 of us. He would raise his hand like it was something special and go back to the clowning.

I still didn't do any of that, because I didn't know anything about it. As for me, my little brother and I were just like everyone else. I wore the same uniform to school, I did well in school and other things I pursued, we didn't get everything we asked for, but we did get the occasional Barbie doll and roller skates. Books were never denied, music was cultivated as a theme (from Marathi morning folk songs to ghazals and old Hindi songs and the list goes on). Parties and meals celebrated with aplomb. Clothes and appearance were taken care of, shoes were always cleaned. I had the same computer assembled in '96 that everyone else had, the same Encarta CD, Rahul Dravid posters adorned my walls, and the slow but steady collection of cassettes. '

To add to it, my name wasn't exactly a gift. 'Neha Bhujang' wouldn't necessarily sound the alarms, so I was a happy chameleon.

A fourth grader said, "People of your caste are at a lower level than even sewer pigs."

I was born in Mumbai to a middle class family and my parents insisted on providing us with a good education. He knew about my caste because my dad was socially active, but not that he was "inferior." Until I had a discussion with a fourth grader about celebrating Ambedkar Jayanti at home, a normal event for us. Somehow, he ended up responding with, "People of your caste are at a lower level than even sewer pigs." I felt very hurt and could only say: "You are also the same." A friend stood up for me, but somehow her words never left me.

I am 32 years old and that incident is still etched in my memory, which is a testament to how deeply it affected me.

I did not face discrimination in school until I took advantage of the reservation is the 10th standard. The mother of a close friend scoffed, "Quota people are easy," when the credit for the open category at my university that year was only 2-3% higher than mine. After this incident, I began to hide my caste even though my last name immediately revealed my lower caste status. I learned to ignore teasing or hide or run whenever my caste was mentioned.

They called us "Sheddus". The rooms they assigned us were on the ground floor, we were very ragged, looked down upon. I got over it thanks to the convent education my father gave me. Then the colleagues started saying that 'I am a SC fraud'. Because they couldn't associate doing well with belonging to a programmed caste. My brother was wrongly booked by the police simply because he was in a relationship with a Brahmin girl.

Even in the Public Administration there is discrimination, but not openly. You don't get good posts and you always fear surveillance complaints against you. People shoot you. They want you to fail. They try to spoil their ACRs and thwart their growth. You cannot rule like a baniya or a brahmin. Your subordinates talk about you behind your back.

Most of my friends, colleagues, and subordinates know my caste, but I'm still wary of "dating" for fear that it might affect my daughters' confidence. They are young and I don't want them to go through the same discrimination as me. Still, I try to stay strong by boycotting those who boycott us.

Education is the only tool that can give you strength, for which I am grateful to my father. Only with education can I face this society.

Kya Bhangi Jaise Kapde Pehne Hai

Most people think that this discrimination based on caste is a thing of the past and does not occur in a metropolitan city, especially today. No! it happens everywhere. it is the deep-seated prejudice that people exercise along the same lines as sexism.

It is like the pink elephant that is always around, but people are afraid to recognize it. It exists in the insults "kya bhangi jaise kapde pehne hai" to "chori chamari" that even children use. It happens when you go to rent a house (a real incident that happened to my friend, both assistant professors at the University of Delhi) "Aapki caste kya" when they replied jatav, the high caste owner denied them a house, even though It was recommended by a friend.

It occurs in the matrimonial columns of the newspapers, conveniently aligned according to caste. It happens when you want to marry someone you were in a relationship with for years, but you can't do it just because of your caste. It happens when no matter what you achieve, how hard you work, people find out about your caste and assume that all your achievements are due to quota. And blame all your failures on the lack of a fee, regardless of how low your actual scores are.

To answer the question, SC / ST does not flaunt reservations. They are one of the most persecuted social groups in India.

The attempt to generate hatred against the SC / ST shows the moral bankruptcy of the privileged castes of India.

Martin Luther King Jr. expressed it eloquently in the following words.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad guys, but the appalling silence of the good guys. - Martin Luther King Jr.

Those who think it is okay to ignore aggression against SC / ST, because it does not affect them now, will continue to pay the price of fostering hatred in the future.

My experience, SC. I was from a chaotic middle class family in the Tier II city of India. It can be said that some of my family members are uncivilized and totally lacking in civic sense. I have faced family disputes over property disputes, use of foul language in public. He had an unstable family. I mean, my father (stubborn / cold) left our family for almost 8 years when I was 7. Childhood was stressful and irritating watching my mother fight and feed us. But now the conditions are better.

Now, answering your question:
I don't. Instead, it is rather whether it is a blessing or a bane. If I don't use it, I may not get a good seat.

Childhood was stressful and irritating watching my mother fight and feed us. But now the conditions are better.

Now answering your question:
I do not. Instead, it is rather whether it is a blessing or a bane. If I don't use it, I may not get a seat at a good university. If I use it, it's another story, did I deserve this seat or not? In my case, I used it to get into a decent engineering college. When I was in my engineering I slowly developed an inferiority complex that, around me, is better since I came here with a reserve fee. It made me try harder than my peers. And my total after BE was 74-75 (VTU, Karnataka), it seems it was above average, it seems my inferiority complex helped here. I entered MNC on campus placement. While at work, when he was unable to complete some assigned tasks, he again goes back to stage 1. "Did I deserve this job?" My brother also used the quota and is now abroad. Still, we both feel very insecure when it comes to comparison and competition. Today the debates on reservations and protests are increasing. In the movie "Aarakshan", he (Saif) says that the starting line must be the same before starting the competition. It gets very complex when you think about what you mean by "starting line". We are faced with a subtle inequality. For example, perhaps your parents first verify if the future boyfriend / girlfriend comes from the same caste even before knowing his qualification or personal achievements, they begin with a saying "looking for a boyfriend in this or that caste", in metropolitan areas you will not see but how you moving to villages in India, Most of the villages have geographical areas divided according to their caste, when there is a marriage between a couple of upper / lower cast it sometimes ends in the massacre, the Vemula case in AP, etc. Therefore, I sometimes end up arguing fiercely on quora when the reservation policy is questioned.

I'm a SC and I have a few SC / ST friends, none of them flaunt it. Instead, it just makes us more insecure and constantly makes us judge our ability as "Do I deserve this facility?"

Edit 1: I have faced caste-based inequality even as a child. When the chapter on Ambedkar (in our curriculum there used to be a chapter on him in all grades up to 10th), I started, everyone used to gasp heavily! even the professor's behavior was a bit awkward. No one was happy that there was 1 less chapter to study for an exam ...

To be clear, it is not the same for all St / Sc

Yes, some of them are due to a caste-based reservation rather than a poverty-based reservation ... (Especially for Sc / St)

Thanks to two friends of mine, because that is why I spoke with them and understood that I am writing this here.

So how can it be justified? Five possible reasons you may have thought of are as follows.

a) To tackle social discrimination and hopefully reduce it:

A SC or ST may be rich today, but overall, the existence of a caste system in India and its relationship to the power structure in our society during our long history suggests that the probability of a SC / ST being rich in the last 500 years before 1947 it would have been much lower, so the SC / ST person or family

Thanks to two friends of mine, because that is why I spoke with them and understood that I am writing this here.

So how can it be justified? Five possible reasons you may have thought of are as follows.

a) To tackle social discrimination and hopefully reduce it:

A SC or ST may be rich today, but overall, the existence of a caste system in India and its relationship to the power structure in our society during our long history suggests that the probability of a SC / ST being rich in the last 500 years before 1947 it would have been much lower, so that the SC / ST person or family may be richer probably due to the efforts made after 1947 and not so much before. The caste system led to the domination of the upper castes (and in particular, the Brahmins) and the subjugation of the SC and ST who were treated as slaves and were not allowed to receive education or own property: they could only dedicate themselves to jobs servile (such as cleaning human shit or garbage) and could not be treated as equals to upper castes or other sectors of society.

While economic prosperity may have caught up with them to some extent (which is why the SC / ST type is rich today) for various reasons, economic prosperity does not always have to lead to a change in society's mindset towards SCs. / ST. Before independence, Ambedkar, who had done a PhD from the London School of Economics, faced untouchability. Even today, SC / ST people face discrimination along similar lines; the only change may be in the subtlety of the discrimination. You can read this site to know more:

The death of merit

So what is the idea behind the reservation? The idea seems to be to fight against that social discrimination that a rich SC / ST boy or girl can also face by having them enter through a reservation and make them reside among the upper castes. The hope is that the higher castes (and other people) possibly interact with this boy or girl, try to understand him as a person and it may be that this will reduce their hatred for SC / ST in general and make them realize that such discrimination or system caste is wrong and SC / ST are normal human beings like them who deserve to be treated as equals. And if they change, chances are their children (and later generations) will not believe in the caste system or follow it either.

b) To take into account the different educational backgrounds of general caste and SC / ST students:

Remember that SC / STs were not only poor but had low social status in society and could not even dream of receiving an education before British rule due to the caste system. So although higher caste generations were educated and those advantages were transferred when the British introduced a modern educational system in India, it was not available to SC / ST people. According to research studies carried out, it is essentially difficult to learn educational skills and abilities for that generation within a family going to school or learning center or the first time, as their parents cannot help them to learn these skills and they have to learn them on your own. And this can also have an impact on the learning of people within the family across generations. Therefore, while the learning would probably have been easy for the higher castes,

So considering this the idea is that the learning curve is steeper for SC / STs to go up compared to upper castes, society and government say we will make it less steep for them by introducing reservations and relaxing the criteria for qualification.

c) A SC / ST group affinity and the ideal

Remember that because SC / STs have been discriminated against, they are very likely to have a group mentality (as a reaction to what they and / or their ancestors have faced). Now because of this, a higher probability is that one SC or ST will look to another SC / ST in times of trouble such as problems at work / workplace or problems in education / university. And through the reserve, not only the rich SC / ST but also the poor can also enter.

Take, for example, an SC / ST type, let's say from a poor family who has entered some educational institution. This boy is not doing well on exams and he wants to do well. Who would I go to? A high probability is that you go to a SC / ST student who is doing well on exams, as that type may be more helpful and helpful in understanding your problem compared to a general or higher caste student who, in First, you may not understand your background. and the reason for a possible poor understanding (due to their varied backgrounds) and also due to past history and related comfort.

Which SC / ST student is most likely to score well on the SC / ST exams? The one whose parents are educated or the one whose parents are not? The wealthy SC / ST may not be doing better than the average group of general caste students, but it is highly likely that that person is doing better or being the best among SC / ST students. And this student may be the ideal that other SC / ST students can turn to for help. Obviously, the rich guy may be too arrogant, bossy, or useless by nature, but the likelihood of this happening is not high enough that we can rule out reservations in this regard.

This is not just the case in education. It can be in government offices or schools or other places as well.

To these three, I add the fourth reason for what I understood from the Dalit perspective.

d) The hypocrisy of merit

When the nation is formed, the suggestion is that the SC and ST communities become equal partners in the development process. But when the time comes to make them equal partners by giving them participation (say in the legislature, jobs, educational opportunities), ways are found to remove that participation by introducing the idea of ​​"merit." This is just a continuation of what was happening in the caste system.

Previously, upper caste people and generals feared that if SC / ST got an education, the hegemony of the upper castes would end in a few generations and SC / ST with their high numbers and educational and social skills would become rich and powerful. That is why they were not allowed to educate themselves.

Now, due to the Constitution, there is no other way than to give a share to SC / ST through the reserve. Who is the best to take advantage of this bet: rich between SC / ST or poor between SC / ST? The rich, because a greater probability is that they can be educated and can be ideal for the community and also do good to other SC / STs who are not well-off through their education and the positions they reach in the future. For example, a SC collector can assist SCs in the area in which they are stationed.

And so the SC / ST feels that the upper castes still want their hegemony to continue. So what do they do? Reduce this bet by opposing reserve and introducing the idea of ​​"merit".

And hence SC / ST calls the idea of ​​"merit" total hypocrisy.

And finally, the fifth reason:

e) Threat to national unity:

Related to d) is the fact that the general assumption in a society seems to be that power is concentrated in the hands of the rich and it is this power through which they can decide who gets what. So if the SC / ST wants to have a stake in power or education or anything else, a major requirement on their minds may be to get rich.

But if the rich SC / ST are also not put into play for one reason or another, what is the hope of the poor that their voice will be heard, especially by those who are not from their communities and who may not be facing the same? ? discrimination like them? Ambedkar had no such belief after what he faced in his life, even after becoming a Ph.D. Why would a poor SC / ST have such hope when that hope will never be fulfilled?

If this hope becomes null or negligible, there is a probability that the SC / ST could ask for an independent nation where they can exist together, something like Pakistan (Islamic state) except that this would be a SC / ST state, where at least there are hope your voice will be heard. And if lawsuits arise for several of those SC / ST states, then who knows when India may break. We already have Kashmir and Nagaland, since 1947. Are we ready for another 20-30 SC / ST nations that want to form by dividing our country? It is something our nationalists would have thought deeply about.

To avoid such potentialities, the people of the Nehruvian-Ambedkarite idea may have introduced reservations (they both apparently talked about this threat in different places).

Personal Story: Should We Blame the Reservations or the Caste System?

My origin: 27 year old Indian male.

Alma mater: IIT + IIM

Schooling: boarding + stay with parents only on 11 and 12

Before the entrance exams, like anyone else, I didn't know what my caste was. I never used it anywhere and nobody asked me. One fine day, my school was reviewing the categories the students belonged to. I was surprised to see that my friends were marked as generals while my name was marked as SC.

Personal Story: Should We Blame the Reservations or the Caste System?

My origin: 27 year old Indian male.

Alma mater: IIT + IIM

Schooling: boarding + stay with parents only on 11 and 12

Before the entrance exams, like anyone else, I didn't know what my caste was. I never used it anywhere and nobody asked me. One fine day, my school was reviewing the categories the students belonged to. I was surprised to see that my friends were marked as generals while my name was marked as SC. I immediately called my parents from the school office and they said it was correct. I was silent, went home and asked for more details. I got the same standard response about being repressed and treated as untouchable in the past. I didn't buy that. But anyway, I was a 17-year-old boy who had to listen to parents. Entrance exams happened and although I didn't do my best, I managed to get into IIT.

I started hearing taunts from my school friends and there was a guy who came with me to IIT and said I could get a better branch if people like me didn't take seats. I felt really bad. I felt like I didn't deserve all of that. I used to see regular taunts from people with a low CGPA that they weren't good and that they came in through reservations. My closest friends never saw me as a reserved candidate. But sometimes I could feel my opinions being ignored in serious debates and I was never able to express my opinions. But this was only sometimes. He had decided that he would never use the reserve on anything in the future.

4 years passed and it was time for placements and higher education options. Placements were the first level playing field where everyone would compete together regardless of category. I did very well and I was placed with one of the most coveted consulting firms, even before my friends.

Then came the second series of entrance exams. I got greedy, forgot my promise not to use reservations. I used it against my own will and entered IIM. Again 2 years passed. Internships and placements were again level playing fields. I did an international stint during an internship with a major multinational consumer goods company, beating many of my classmates. I was hearing spiel from my classmates about reservations and how easy it is for upmarket kids to get in. They attributed the reduced quality of the students to the reserves. I realized that I didn't deserve them because I was reserved. My caste had become my greatest insecurity. I decided that I will not use the reserve for myself or my future generation. I broke my caste certificate so as not to be tempted as before. Since my country gave me that privilege, I decided to give back to my country by working only for an Indian company and contributing to our GDP. Consequently, in the final placement, I accepted a job in a private company that is Indian at heart and soul. I'm still working here.

I fell in love with a girl. Things were going well. I didn't hide anything from him. She was angry that they deserved reserved removals. I agreed with her. I also told him that I would never use it. That's when things started to shake. But I had convinced her that we will succeed. He had a conversation with his mom some time later. His mom was against it. I don't know the details of their conversation. But he definitely changed his mind drastically. These are the exact words he texted before breaking up:

“I cannot explain more. Different states trust me it wouldn't be a problem. My family would never accept yours. my mom won't let the maid into the kitchen. Do you think he will let you and your family in asking for my hand? You don't understand the stigma "

I understood that this is a unique case. My question is simple. How can anyone judge me for my birth 27 years ago? There are so many things I have done in these 27 years. I was hurt. Won't they look at my work, character, etc.? I have always been a good citizen. I did not do anything wrong. Yet he had gotten over it. I had moved on. But the word 'stigma' bothers me even now.

I met another girl 2 months ago. She was very forward thinking. She understood the evils of society, the dignity of work that is not in our country, the perceptions that are formed in people and how society is not always correct. I thought I had found someone good. She was also interested in me. I told him about my caste. He had very strong opinions against reservations. I understood it again. I explained my side of the story and how I have decided not to use it at all. But in 2 days, he said he wants to end it all.

Now I'm sitting heartbroken wondering what went wrong. Are these exceptional cases? Or is this the general trend? When I tell my colleagues that I am a vegetarian, they ask me if I am a Brahmin. Can't a person be a vegetarian because he doesn't eat animals? When I tell my friends that I want to save money for a business, they ask me not to behave like a baniya. Some of my colleagues call me Marwari from South India because of my money management skills. Some distant friends who do not know my caste openly ask me not to go into any business with a chamar. Things like this make me hide, avoid, and sometimes even lie so that the Breeds don't judge me. I even thought about converting to a different religion to remove the seal. But all religion is pious in itself,

I'm also having doubts about everything now. Do people born SC face even more difficult challenges? Did my dad brag about me because he felt a sense of emancipation in society? Did you want me to leave the country so as not to see the stigma? Did I make a mistake in deciding to serve my country for all that it has given me? Did I make a mistake breaking my caste certificate? Should I leave my country and go? Will people treat me the same for being my caste even if I don't use the reserve?

A friend of mine joined as an Officer in the Department of Government in a high position. He is very talented and does not need reservations for his success. An incident shook him and changed his perspective completely.

After 2 years of training, he got a position in Mumbai. He worked hard and no one ever filed a complaint against him. Their chief was a Brahmin. It was his first assignment after training.

A friend of mine joined as an Officer in the Department of Government in a high position. He is very talented and does not need reservations for his success. An incident shook him and changed his perspective completely.

After 2 years of training, he got a position in Mumbai. He worked hard and no one ever filed a complaint against him. Their chief was a Brahmin. It was his first assignment after training. At the end of the year, a Confidential Annual Report is compiled to assess an employee's worth. His boss gave him 47 out of 100 despite his excellent performance. The boss wrote that this employee is inefficient. He does not know the job. Unable to handle challenging tasks. His language skills are inadequate. This child was called in for a promotion interview because of his scores on the written test, but was not promoted for the Bad Confidential Report.

The boy was stunned. He had a strong academic background and high performance, although he did not get a promotion due to the poor Confidential Report. The first report of her life was brutally spoiled for being a low caste. Imagine how much pain he must have felt? He was afraid to raise his voice. He contacted the SC / ST Association, but to no avail. The leaders of the Association are the most ungrateful idiots. Nobody heard his voice. He had come from one of the poorest slums in India to this position. He didn't want to lose his job in any situation. He was completely devastated and dejected.

The boy took the test again and in his next interview he started with this story of injustice before the interview began. He is now promoted to the next grade and is fighting the new demons of Caste Conscious Bosses.

He tells me how his permission requests are rejected for no reason. Benefits and benefits are withheld or delayed. He is scolded for being ineffective. But the Tiger does not have to depend on the mercy of the goats. He is fighting a relentless battle to teach his elders a good lesson and has brought many to their knees.

Reserved candidates must be brave. They must not depend on the mercy of their elders. Exploitation is wrong, but allowing exploitation is a crime.

To quote John Stuart Mill

"A person can cause harm to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in any case, he is justly responsible to them for the harm."

Reservation is needed to protect the interests of SC / ST candidates. As long as the upper caste continues to deny them their rights, it will not be easy to give up the reservation.

Caste-based discrimination is the progenitor of the reservation. First, the upper castes must renounce their discrimination, then the reserve will automatically disappear.

I don't blame SC / ST / OBC for the reservation.

What is SC / ST / OBC?

According to the Constitution of India, article 340 (1) (2) (3), 341 (1) (2) and 342 (1) (2), the president in line with the governor of a state and Parliament by law they have the power to include / exclude social groups in the SC / ST / OBC categories.

The constitution itself does not describe or identify anyone as SC / ST / OBC. It is the government's job to give us our Breed.

It is the government's job to assign the groups, the oppressors and the oppressed. General caste is the oppressive caste and SC / ST / OBC is the oppressed caste.

It is the government's job to assign the groups, the oppressors and the oppressed. General caste is the oppressive caste and SC / ST / OBC is the oppressed caste.

When did it arise?

The British government passed the Government of India Act 1935 on the basis of the 1931 census. They called it a reserve for the depressed classes and incorporated it into the law, which came into effect in 1937. The British indisputably did this great act of humanity to improve the economic condition of poor Indian citizens. They loved India so much that all their laws and policies were aimed at putting India as an economic power in the world.

India's share of the world economy was around 25% before the arrival of the British in India. When the British left India in 1947, India's share of world GDP was less than 2%.

The queen loved our Kohinoor so much that she kept it to herself. They rightly justify removing the Kohinoor diamond by saying that it would be safe with the royal family in England, which is probably why they took all the wealth from India to England to keep it safe for us, because they love India so much.


It is not the government of India that came up with the idea for the reservation. It is the British who did it out of their love for India and its people.

Before the introduction of the reservation, anyone eligible for a job was free to apply for it based on merits, but after the introduction of the reservation in 1937, their qualification was not sufficient.

When filling out forms for a government service, people first had to learn about their CASTE. Before 1937, the British only used the term "caste" to assign groups.

In 1937 the CASTE concept was born. The people of India were now divided into castes:

  • general
  • Schedule caste
  • Schedule tribe

The almighty government has given me a caste and if the government wants, it can change my caste any day by law.

All those who belong to the "General Caste" are the hounds of society, they are the oppressors. But, anyone who can successfully obtain a government SC / ST / OBC certificate. He will belong to the caste of the dispossessed or oppressed.

In fact, you can change your caste simply by obtaining a certificate from the government.

What does the reservation guarantee?

The reservation does not guarantee anything. Everyone who succeeds in life does so through determination, devotion, and hard work.

I know that our political parties love our nation so much and their hearts are filled with nothing but compassion and well-being for the citizens of their state.

Look at these nationalists who endure so much pain so ordinary Indians can live a life of luxury. My heart is overwhelmed!


It doesn't matter how private it is in your life. You will not have access to any government institution, be it educational (IIT, AIIMS), services or banking, if you do not subscribe to a CASTE provided by the government.

If you do not choose a CASTE, your form will not be accepted.

Assigning CASTE to bring people together has to be the most revolutionary idea in human history.

You need a certification from the established government to be officially recognized as private.

Brahmins who live frugal lives, at the very least, chant mantras and dedicate their lives to the Vedas. Brahmins who are not allowed to pursue wealth, pleasure or power are the oppressor class, as the British and now the government said.

Kshatriyas, the warriors who give their lives to protect the borders, sadly have no reservations. It is the only meritocratic government institution where it is not necessary to subscribe to a government-provided CASTE.

Shedding tears for our fallen warriors is foolish. The Kshatriyas are the other oppressors in our society, as told by the British and now politicians.

It is a scientifically established fact that Brahmins who fast and chant Vedic mantras are directly responsible for the Islamic invasion and British colonialism. It was not the UPA that was involved in scams of 12 million lakh rupees, it was the Brahmins and the Kshatriyas who deposited money in Swiss banks and other tax havens.

These upper class people deserve to be abused and hated because they are certainly a cruel class group and more dangerous than those men in America and Europe who practiced slavery and racism.


The reserve is the greatest blessing bestowed on India by the British to spread love and unity among the different communities in India.

Politicians in India are the epitome of charity, compassion and selflessness who will protect the reserve until their last breath. Even my parents didn't love me and they cared so much about me.

They don't want to leave the reserve because they are getting jobs, college admissions, scholarships, fewer college fees. If they leave, they will not be able to benefit from them.

Here are two examples

I was a student at Nit University. During 3 years of university life, they were all the same. They all have the same hostels, bathroom, classroom. Non-discrimination at the university. When last year started and some PSU companies started coming here, he shortlisted the candidates. Some of my friends called for an interview plus they have a low CGPI. I was surprised how it is possible. Then i came to know

When last year started and some PSU companies started coming here, he shortlisted the candidates. Some of my friends called for an interview plus they have a low CGPI. I was surprised how it is possible. Then I knew that they belonged to the St / St categories. I was surprised. They were rich and had all the facilities. His parents were working in government departments. I was thinking on what basis they would get reserve. They are rich enough ... enough resources ... they don't face discrimination ... so why were they getting the benefits of the reserve?

The people who really deserve it from the Reserve are those who live in the slums. There are many st / sc people who live in the slum area and they are poor. They also fall to benefit from the Reserve. But they are not getting it because some rich and educated people from St / St don't want to give it up. And they are taking advantage of this advantage. So the reserve is misused by rich and educated people.

2.

Tina Dabi (UPSC topper 2015) is an example of this. She took advantage of the reservation while her parents are IES Class A servants.

both of Tina's parents are very successful. Tina has always had a high level of education. She never faced or saw any financial problems. She never felt the problem of social stigma related to caste. She is also quite a sensitive girl. So the question arises: shouldn't I have avoided being in the reserved category? If he had avoided being in the reserved category, the beneficiary would have been someone else, he could be needy, Dalit. That is why some require a review of the reservation.

Therefore, if the government wants to develop a certain number of people per reserve, then the reserve system should be changed. So that deserving people can take advantage of some of its benefits.

Well, converting to SC / ST won't be easy for you. The reasons are according to the law that their conversion means that the next generation would have to convert.

The current population only sees the reserved category as an advantage. But they undermine the kinds of atrocities they have faced for many centuries. Before independence, SC / ST were undermined by the kind of work they were forced to do. Clean people's feces. Doing the hard work. In response to that, they were not granted property rights or the right to education. This population has faced atrocities for centuries.

La población actual puede obtener los beneficios de la propiedad y la educación. Éstas son las únicas ventajas. Todavía hay muchos candidatos SC / ST que son mejores que la población en general, pero aún son tratados de la misma manera.

Well if you really want to convert based on % of seats in reservation then it would surprise you that at central government, SC has 22.5% reservation, ST has 8.6% of reservation, OBC’s have 27% of reservation and women (irrespective of caste or religion) get 30% reservation (as per the stats, 15% of these are from pre mentioned categories, 15% reservation is enjoyed by women of forward caste).

Reservation % is calculated based on social, economic, educational status of the caste. Probably, now i will leave it to your intelligence, if you want to compete and come up in your caste, or you want to change to lower caste for only success and face insults for the rest of your life. Choice is yours….

Is good or bad ???

PLINTH TO PARAMOUNT Trip

  • La reserva solía ser algo trivial, la gente solía verlo con indiferencia hasta la implementación del informe de la comisión MANDAL, ya que se le dio a las castas más poderosas como JAT y ahora la gente encuentra algo de grandeza en obtener reserva.
  • Just think it started with SC/ST, then it reached to OBC, now EWS . Still demand is not getting calm as MARATHA and JATs of HARYANA are asking for it. It will never stop as well.

KILLING MERIT

  • it is my personal opinion that govt jobs (except few) are not innovative so I think, it doesn't matter, whether you are meritorious or not . Merit works for clearing exam, after that i dont think MERIT is needed.
  • I would say govt jobs are itself killing merits, not reservation.

Why so hue & cry

  • Govt jobs make 3–4% of total jobs in India. Big percentage of it is clerical jobs. Crores of people aspiring for becoming clerks & then we call our selves meritorious

Uplifted reserved vs poor reserved

  • I think reservation has reached to saturation level as some have uplifted enough to reap its benefits again & again . Classes have been created in SC/ST & OBC itself . Real beneficiaries are very few and they will not get their share

Killing genuine MERIT

  • Reserved category people are highly attracted towards govt job and they will never look at the brighter side of utilising their own talent

For example - i have many rich friends. Many of them are in IIM, many of them went to foreign for further studies and rich SC/ST/OBC are still aspiring for govt jobs.

So this is very true, when something is engulfed in your mentality then you cant think beyond that bar.

No need of Self Contempt

This all problem starts when we enter some govt exam competition or some college admission .

(We dont enter, we dont care )

General category people cursing themselves for taking birth in general category .

I would suggest next generation people to prepare your kid for acquiring skills.

For example - i have one friend who started working in TCS ( 25k/month) . He acquired more skills and kept changing jobs and now his salary is 16 lac/annum . Now he is also planning for going to AMERICA for more opportunities.

Creating Poor Mentality

Just think when EWS reservation was given . How people started running to get the certificate.

How can a country go forward, where people of that country are working hard to prove them BACKWARD by any means.

Brain Drain

Yeah it is very true . May be reservation has some small or no link with it as good brain will not aspire for govt jobs (except few )

As these people going out do not do govt jobs in USA.

major reasons are different like good opportunities, better packages, better civilized life , fun, less judgemental people.

No change at ground level

Has caste system stopped ? ( Caste system and Reservation are two brothers who will keep supporting each other )

Did intercaste marriage start happening?

Did SC/ST get uplifted ? ( Even we got some more in form of OBC /EWS )

Did untouchability stop ?

Yes in cities -

not because of RESERVATION,

because of

URBANISATION, INDUSTRIALISATION , EDUCATION

Now you can understand why it is prevalent in villages .

100% RESERVATION

Govt can opt for 100% reservation by giving 25 years lease time to general category. It will painful for general category people but this clear idea will give General Category students better perspective . ( Next generation of general category wont even prepare for govt exam )

The way govt is increasing reservation 10–10%, it is very devastating as general category is most affected by this as they enter in brutal competition for 40% seats and get themselves trapped .

So conclusion is this :

I ( individual level ) dont think it is bad . Coz it is bad when we enter in ARENA , if we dont enter we do not care.

At broader level it is benefitting less & costing a lot somehow.

first lets see what is the meaning of the development

an event constituting a new stage in a changing situation.
current status of population of india

AS SHOWN IN ABOVE PIC
the population of india according to castes

Primero veamos cuál es el significado del desarrollo
DESARROLLO como lo define google
un evento que constituye una nueva etapa en una situación cambiante.
estado actual de la población de la india

COMO SE MUESTRA EN LA FOTO ARRIBA
la población de la India según las castas

ESCENARIO SEGÚN DISTRIBUCIÓN EN TRABAJOS DEL GOBIERNO


claramente, las castas avanzadas tienen más trabajos en proporción a su población y viceversa es cierto para sc / st

what reservations is doing is to ensure a proportional representation
DEVELOPMENT in terms of general category/anti reservationists
according to them if a sc/st
1.owns a fb account
2.owns a cars (honda city) refer to my answer in this (Why do people just hate the reservation system )
3.owns a mobile phone
4.lives in flat
THEN IN THEIR ACCORD HE/SHE is a developed guy/girl
although the development not only means building economic well being and ablity to buy flats and cars
but also means building a social capital and self esteem

PS:-(if you mean that the ablity to buy no of cars and nos of mobile phone is the development then you have a long way to go ahead )

REAL MEANING OF DEVELOPMENT
the day when a dalit will not be rejected on the caste basis on the social scenario be it a job or a marriage,
renting a flat or caste exclusion
THAT VERY DAY WE WILL DEVELOPED
the day these types of headline will become common

OFCOURSE this thing is not possible without good scholling and infrastructure


AT LAST I WILL ONLY SAY THIS
can sc/st can only develop because of reservations
my answer is NO along with reservations we also need to counselling centres and coaching institutes to ensure there mental and social development
surely one have a long way to go ;)

That day would be start of civil war in India whose end result is only Bloodshed.

The reserved class population is 70%,they have numerical strength.

The Indian economy would be derailed, foreigners would withdraw their investment from India, the rupee would weaken. If the rupee weakens, inflation would skyrocket, we would become like Zimbabwe or Venezuela.

The best option to remove the reservation is that the general caste must come forward to open their own universities and must demand minority status for their institution. And private institutes are not required to follow the reservation policy. The added benefit is that you can

The best option to remove reservation is General caste should come forward to open their own colleges and should demand minority status for their institution.And private institutes are not liable to follow reservation policy. The added advantage is that you can reserve 50% of seats for your ethic community, if you are linguistic minority.

For eg: If a tamil person opens the college in Madhya Pradesh where Tamils are in minority, with minority status he would be able to reserve 50% seats for his tamil brothers and sisters and no need to follow sc/st/obc reservation.

For eg:. Now if a Punjabi person opens a medical college in Uttarakhand, then he can reserve 50% of seats for Punjabi persons and no need to follow sc/st/ obc reservation policy.

Christian community has already done for their community that's why you will see in each Indian state christians run majority of top colleges and this community is most educated community of India.

General caste people spend money lavishly on marriages, if we INVEST this money to open colleges then problem of reservation is solved and in addition you earn money and your language can be spread all over India.

This is most peaceful solution to reservation problem. And if you are once educated you don't need Government Jobs and you can find jobs all over world or you can start you own business.

So,Request to all communities of India, please give a thought on my suggestion.

Comments are welcomed.

P.s I am from unreserved class.

Long Live India! Jai Hind! Vande Mataram!

Ni siquiera habrías hecho esta pregunta si supieras por qué existen estas reservas.

Getting to the point, according to the population of the SC / ST communities, that a large part of the seats are reserved, and it is only to ensure the adequate representation / participation of these communities in the management of this country and all the opportunities available in this country. . .

Since a nation cannot be developed without including marginalized people in the task of nation-building, all communities must be equally participatory. And according to government statistics, SC-STs are not adequately repr

You wouldn't even have asked this question if you knew why these reservations exist.

Getting to the point, according to the population of the SC / ST communities, that a large part of the seats are reserved, and it is only to ensure the adequate representation / participation of these communities in the management of this country and all the opportunities available in this country. . .

Since you cannot develop a nation without including the marginalised people in the task of building a nation, every community must be equally participative. And according to the government statistics, the SC-STs are not adequately represented according to their population.

Now, since the idea of reservation is completely irrelevant to the economic situation of an individual, you should concentrate on securing maximum marks that you can and not on whether to enjoy(?) the reservation policy.

Note: I don’t know whether you have observed this in our society or not, but even if you are a millionaire, you’ll always be a ‘lower caste’ in the eyes of so called higher caste people (excluding 2–3% people like Dabholkar). Caste consciousness is really hard to remove from the brains of caste Hindus. Now the choice is yours.

Edit 1: Since someone merged ‘I'm facing a dilemma. I'm against casteism and communalism…….’

Casteism is a (mental) disease and reservation is just one of the measures for countering the adverse effects of casteism which are harassing downtroddens since centuries. So ‘reservations are cultivating casteism’ is just a hearsay, a lie, false propaganda, spread by media(Media is almost completely controlled by ‘upper’ caste males) so you MUST NOT believe that. So there is nothing wrong in getting admission in reserved seats. And even if you get into a college without reservation, still you’ll have to face the casteist minds in the society. They will find your caste anyhow.
