Reservations in India has been existent for more than half a century now. It was then, the need of the hour, to close the gap on discrimination. Throughout the tenure of existence it has for sure made a lot of impact on the lives of almost every Indian, be it good or bad.
The word "Reservation" itself demarcates our social strata, so it can never ever be fair. It has instilled feeling in the masses based on casteism. When I was in my kindergarten days, I used to hear people say that when we will grow up, the caste system would be abolished from the society but what I find today is just the opposite what people thought in the past.
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past - Thomas Jefferson And that is why I want to meet you, Rajiv Goswami. It is you who I would resurrect from the pages of History because with you I want to dream of a better future, rather than think of a historical past that consumed you.
