Anti-Reservation Protests All Over The Nation

with 5 comments

The protests against reservation has been going around for quite a long time and no luck till date. The speeches given by Arjun Singh is making the protesters even more fierce and problem is getting big day by day. As an individual I also feel the same as the protesters feel. There shouldn't be any reservations.

Ok, coming to the point…there is going to be protests in most parts of the country on 20th and 21st.

Check out http://protestcentral.blogspot.com/ for information about protest activities in your city and how you can join in the protests.

Its better to let know the visitors of this blog about "Why Anti-Reservation"

Why we oppose reservation?
1) It is going to kill meritocracy, and hence destroy India's image as a technology hub.
2) It is dividing India into caste lines which our freedom fighters and social reformers fought so hard to eliminate.
3) It is against the fundamental right to equality as safeguarded by the Constitution of India.
4) The benefits of reservation have been denied to really deserving people by the rich and powerful in their own classes.
5) Reservation is just a populist measure used by politicians for electoral gains.

  2. In democracy it is not enough if one is a good citizen. In order for democracy to work effectively it is necessary as a Good Samaritan one ensures that others are also good citizens. If one observes bad behaviour one needs to be vocal about it and condemn it. If somebody feels that something is not right they need to make their voice heard and ensure that people hear their voice.

    Being a mute spectator in democracy is not participation. One needs to get involved in everyday activities related to ones surroundings, society and country as a whole. A citizen needs to have unflinching love for his country and must get involved in betterment of the society.

    Every step that he takes towards goodness hinders the evil pervading the society by another step. It is an everyday war between the good and evil. Nothing good will happen on its own cosmically. One needs to assume that there exists no cosmic force outside us and all the force that needs to bring the change in society lies inside us.

    If a change or revolution needs to be brought into the society it we who need to cause it. We have to exert ourselves to action in order to ensure that there is movement of the wheel in the right direction. By inertia the society will move in the wrong direction. It is we who need to make it move in the right direction.

    Why should I care? I pay my taxes, isn’t that sufficient? No, If you are paying taxes more the need for you to get involved with the country. You need to find out how the government is utilizing your money. Is it using for the benefit of the society. What is the use of paying money every year to somebody if he is not giving it back to you with interest? The idea behind collecting taxes by the government is that government uses its judiciously for the collective good. You have to be concerned if the government is not using it for collective good.

    What the reservation movement needs is not your money. It needs your time. You have to stand there in the roads holding the placards in the hot sun, bearing the rough weather or in the rain as the case may be. You must be undeterred and your focus should be on the vision. Every act of voluntary work done by you will help in a great way in the cause.

    If you don’t act now, history will look upon you as coward, who didn’t act when he was supposed to. He didn’t do when his country called him to act. Good will slowly lose grip over society and evil will take over. Once evil takes over don’t ask God for help or don’t curse yourself for not having acted when it was time to act.

    Act now for history will never forgive you.

  4. we r very much known to the proverb ” MANAVTA MEIN EKTA BHARAT KI SAMAANTA” being published in every where possible since a very long time …………….. but not implemented till date
    The concept of reservation is taking us away from the same ………
    The main aim of a person should be
    bringing humanity close to humanity
    is not reservation taking us away from the sole objective
