Looking back to earlier century when the ritual of untouchability was followed, that time yes the reservation for SC/ST, OBC etc so called minorities were needed because they were treated like they are not humans.
They were not allowed to drink water from same
river, were not offered jobs with higher class people, but now days
the game is reversed. Now its totally different from earlier
centuries as now these minority people live in high class societies,
travel all around the world in big cars, children study in India's
top rated schools.
In short they live exactly the same life as of all
other people but when it comes to admission in colleges, getting job
or having appraisals these are the only people who are benefited. Two
students studying in same school, coming through same vehicle, having
their house in the same society but when it comes to taking admission
in college, one with37 marks gets admission whereas other one having
107 does not get admission.
He has to struggle weather its appraisals in
employment or getting a higher pay package. Is this a democracy of
India? There is a law "Right to Equality" which in starting
focused mainly on minority groups to help them get a status and a
better life in the society but now days we require a proper use of it
towards the general category.
Its not that reservation is not needed, obviously
it's needed but in my opinion it should be on economic basis instead
of based on caste system.
