FB Discussions - more on reservations
Some people say that reservations is not reaching the poorest and so to scrap it. I would have expected the answer to be, "demand it reaches."
And though much correction is needed, it does reach. One of my village boys is a government school teacher. It happenned only because of reservations. Another is a librarian - similarly.
Poor village government schooling, illiterate families, poor nutrition, crises in homes, studying in a one roomed hut, facing subtle discrimination in colleges for being SCs. Want more reasons why I want reservations, and more of it ? I can go on.
