Reservation Crutches

Interesting article on reservation by a OBC IIT Professor. Dr. Gopinathan studied and taught in an IIT for 27 years. With the ever increasing quota net, I only wish the politicians and ISRO scientists listen to him and be like him..

So what should the OBC students, for whom the politician's heart has suddenly started bleeding, do? They should join the anti-reservation agitation and agitate for decent schools, good teachers and scholarships and refuse to be taken for an easy ride by the vote seekers. They should maintain their dignity and refuse the segregating ignominy of backdoor entries into institutions of higher learning. They should ask for better training, better running shoes, better coaches and show that they too can race with the others.

They should throw away the demeaning crutches offered.
