Reservation Policy of India makes me rethink, Is India a Secular Country ?

Hello all..!

Today I am going to give my personal opinion on Reservation Policy of India. (Please take some time to give your opinion on this issue, you will get the link to Facebook Questions at the end of the post.)

If you are an Indian, you must have read in class 7th in Social Studies, that India is a Secular Country.

And if you are not then too You must have heard of it.

In a Secular Country it is expected that every citizen gets equal rights.

Our country claims that it is a secular country but when I try to think the other way then sorry I don't think the same.





I am going to give you an example.

You are in class 12th (higher secondary education). You are too good in studies  and eager to become a doctor.

And you have a friend who is also a classmate of yours, who is an average or below average in studies. You both have many things in common.

You are best friends.

You both have your own owned house, you both are neighbors. You both have got equal respect and other things in life.

And when exam results comes you scored 92% marks, and your friend just 51% marks.

And You do not get admission in Medical college even at self financed college and your friend gets admission in Medical college that too at Government financed.

Thanks to the Reservation Policy of India, that did a great justice to your hardwork.

The only difference between you and your friend was that he belonged to a reserved caste like ST (Social Tribe).

Your dream is churned out and the one who didn't have thought to be a doctor just becomes a doctor because he got admission.

Is this a justice ? Will you still think the same ? Is India a Secular Country ??

Every day thousands of millions of dreams are churned away by this reservation system of our country.

Many undeserving candidates enjoy the benefits at the same time.

I always wonder what these doctors and engineers who are not that qualified will give to our society.

They might even take life's of people as they do not qualify to the dignity honored.

Think a student who somehow passes the exams becomes a civil engineer because he belongs to certain reserved caste, followed by he gets a job in government as construction engineer again because he belongs to certain caste.

He never studied hard because he was assured that he has pool of opportunities as he will get out as reserved candidate.

He has insufficient knowledge. And then he gets a job and then he works on major projects.

This Engineer will construct bridges, airports, grounds like Commonwealth games, Who knows he may also construct a Nuclear power station. I fear these are bound to have some problems or errors. This may kill masses.

I am not sure where this reservation policy will lead us. 

Ohhh the other side, what about the open caste students, job seekers ?

To be a good doctor, engineer from a reputed institute becomes too hard or just a dream. Getting a government job is next to impossible to them. Thanks to our Great Reservation Policy.

There are many many people who belong to open castes, who are very poor. Who do not get right education, right job. At the same time there are many many people from other castes, Who are rich, have everything in there life, they are no more socially out-casted. Still they eat up these poor open castes candidates seats. Though open caste candidate may have scored higher, though they are more talented, though they are comparatively poor and have faced more social concerns then these reserved castes. The reserved caste candidates get that seat which the other guy actually deserves.

After Independence the social status of reserved castes is increased, there is no more discriminations between people based on castes in most of states of India.

But still we have this Reservation policy, which indeed is creating discrimination.

So this is high time we need to revise this  Non-secular reservation policy.

Today's Reservation Policy secures above 50% of seats to the candidates from SC, ST, And other backward castes (OBC) which is even against the Mondal Commissions suggestion that Reservation should not be above 50%, And this reservation policy was framed by Mondal Commission only. Also the government itself is confused with the term, "OBC" (Other Backward Castes)


I am in an opinion that this caste based Reservation policy should be taken back to its fullest.

And there should be no reservation policy. 

This will give equal justice, rights to all the people.

Let there be a healthy competition, may the best win.

Let there be no reservation, Let there be no discriminations.

This will make India a truly SECULAR country.

And then Every Indian will be truly proud of being an INDIAN.

  4. Yes Kunjan.
    Absolutely right.
    This reservation policy has given nothing to open caste people except mockeries. And the worst part is year by year increase of reserved seats.
    Thanks.

  6. ye..thats what..we had few of our classmates who in spite of no attractive % got into medicine. Now imagine the kind of doctors they are or rather let me put it that way, the false proud they carry on their sleeves and flaunt about themselves in their community that they are doctors now!! Of course I never deserved to be a doctor but neither did they! there were much deserved people whom i know lost their confidence after 12th and regained it only after a lapse of time!

  7. If the reservation policy continues than I won't be surprised when half of the youth migrates to some other country because of a better education environment there which allows them to flourish. In all I am totally against caste based reservation. However income based reservation where only 30% of the seats are given out might be the way forward for a huge country like ours.

  8. Hello Mathur you are right. Reservation policy might be a good reason why indian student's going out for studies in good numbers, also there are more opportunities. I also support income based reservation but it should be no more then 20% is what i think.
    Thanks for taking time and reading it. :)

    Yes,I agree that reservation were necessary in old times as the people of sc and st had no chance of raising their social status.But now sc/st have become a brand.The children of parents (who are sc/st and have taken benefit of this reservation)are also getting undue advantage as it has become hereditary and the real talent are not getting chance of general category. This reservation is now passing from generations to generations and government should stop it

  10. You are right Rudreksh Ji. Yes the reservation should not be heredity. Once used it should not go the next generation as the previous generation would have developed using it. I strongly believe reservation if any should be on economy  based. Because poverty does not comes seeing the Caste and Religion.

    Thanks.

  13. Luk at the distribution of seat during admission process.. A obc sc st student cn take his/ her seat on the basis of all india rank means without use of quota but a vaccante seat of obc sc st can not be provided its remain vaccante through out the season ... This law is same as untouchable system only name of depressed group n ruler is exanchange .. Such system luk like revange... It is a form of social discrimination it is mudered of humanity...

  14. Exactly!Even i am also thinking in same way.that Is India secular?
    as we are given reservation to the caste basis and not on the Financial basis.so how can we say that we are secular.

  15. With respect to the thought & provocative negation as it is evident in the above write up . More importantly not only is it misleading in many dimensions but also not backed up with deep thought & understanding. Comparing General Category Students with so called Reserved Category Students is as an Idiotic way to compare as comparing bananas and oranges despite they are fruits. Agreed that some students do get undue advantage and this is unfair to some extent but if you think in the similar manner as by quoting an example as my friend here have quote let me give you still better example. Lets suppose two twins are born , with twins I assume the are genetically identical in their so called capabilities and qualities let one of them be X & the Other be Y . Lets now suppose that if after they were born the chid A is given all the nutrients, food and vitamins and resources to grow well physically & intellectually well & Child Y be deprived of all of the same nutrients and goodies. so now at the age of say 12 when they are supposed to be relatively competitive and well grown now both the Child x & Y are given same quality of food , nutrients and what not . NOW you All So called Professors of equality tell me one simple thing . Which one of the above Chid will be more competitive, strong and well best ???
    No rocket science is required to figure this out . Most of the childs growth wether physically , mentally or even emotionally is done in its early age (some research say its in its early 6 yrs) , so it is evident that no matter what you give latter to improve the other child who was mall nourished after the age of growth , there cant be any equal comparison on performance or rather any ground between the one who has been enjoying the quality life since early age and the one who has been given extra efforts to grow after extreme late stage. No some Intelligent people will argue how on earth this example is correlated the ongoing argument of RESERVATION IN INDIA .
    Well see most of the people or rather all of the people who have been down trodden due to the earlier cast system which prevailed in India for centuries & now one cant just justify the injustice done to them for centuries by providing reservation for meer 60 or so years, its if not inhuman then utter injustice & thinking against reservation while you & your ancestors have enjoyed worldly prestige and privileges is even shallower a thought. Its so shallow to think that just because I have to get the medical seat or something the other should not . And please quote appropriate examples It never happens that a 51 percent SC Students gets a seat while a 92% Gen category student didnt get one . It does happen that a 88% or so SC student gets the seat in comparison with 90-92 % in realistic situations. Quoting such ambiguous non realistic example just make the rift between the cast MORE n more & people who do tht are the one who actually support cast system & discrimination on the long Run . I personally do oppose reservation on cast system , I personally believe reservation is instrumental in India's success however it should be shouldered responsibly and should be disbursed in a proper structured manner. And being the young dynamic Indians we individually think before we make anything that will have greater impact of the rest of the population. I have too much to say but should sum this up.

    2. Hi Mac Rumors - Sorry for so late response. I really liked your example in this case both will be of same caste as they are twins. One is hit by poverty and other is rich. In any case they belong to the same caste. Assuming they are from reserved caste then both of them will get the reservation which is fare for the poor fellow while the other did not required and that fellow will have unfare advantage over the poor. Assuming the second condition both are from open category both will not get reservation. this is right for the rich but injustice with the poor.
      In this scene we can see that the injustice is done by the reservation system if its done based on caste. It deprives the economically backward open caste people and it gives power to already rich reserved people who no more require reservations. there is need to introduce reservations based on economic condition only is my thought so that in either of the case in your example justice is being done. Regarding examples i have is my senior and my brother. i cant share their marksheets or names as i dont want personal details of the reserved fellow out because he has power of law and he can sue me for revealing his caste to the world. he took the benefit of his ST caste and he puts his surname as patel instead of his ST caste. both had same potentials. His father being a construction engineer (thanks to reservation) and his grand father being an engineer (double thanks to reservation) he had not suffered anything and he also got good environment and facilities. You can take many such examples nearby and many are in news as well like failed maths student got selected as teacher in rajasthan or IAS topper has lower marks then IAS failed fellow. Thanks

  17. Just 4% of population but 7 Brahmins in Indian XI?
    ARVIND SWAMINATHAN writes from Madras: Does caste play a role in Indian cricket? It’s an old question which the Australian social historian Richard Cashman addressed in a landmark book Players, patrons and the crowd (Orient Longman) 28 years ago, and an Australian journalist has raised it again today.

    Sure, we have had Palwankar Baloo, the spinner who was India’s first pre-test Dalit cricketer. And we’ve had the likes of Eknath Solkar, the son of a groundsman at Hindu Gymkhana, and Vinod Kambli, the son of a mechinist born on the other side of the Kanjurmarg railway track, going on to join the cream revolution.

    But…

    But, deep down, there has always been a lingering doubt over whether cricket, a colonial legacy, has been able to shake off the heavy shackles of caste that Indian public life and politics is weighed down by. We are not talking of Test match teams alone, but State teams and local teams and club teams.

    This question is sparked by an article in the Sydney Morning Herald today by Andrew Stevenson titled “A class act?“, which effortlessly confuses between caste and class.

    In the current Sydney Test Indian XI, there are 7 Brahmins (Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, V.V.S. Laxman, Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, R.P. Singh, Ishant Sharma), one Jat (Yuvraj Singh), one Rajput (M.S. Dhoni), one Muslim (Wasim Jaffer), and one Sikh (Harbhajan Singh).

    In other words, nine Hindus (seven of them upper-caste) and two non-Hindus.

    Given the preponderance of upper-caste Hindus in the team, Stevenson gets some experts to address the question whether caste is indeed a factor despite cricket spreading far and wide in the country thanks to one-dayers and television and the “cricket as religion” culture. The responses?
