    Strikes and Dharnas make economy a mess. I need not stress the importance of Economy in making a country march towards development and Growth. So, I wish to see a Government sans Strikes and Dharnas and the political Leaders who encourage Strikes and Dharnas which are divisive and breaks the Backbone of economy should be banned. To express any kind of discontentment, Parliament alone should be made the stage to resolve the crisis. Every person worth his salt should not take the law in his hands and give a clarion call, " Ab Chalo Bandh Kiya Jaay".

    People like Hardik are teaching a lesson to us and our government that the reservation based cast should be cancelled immediately else people from other communities will start their movements like Hardik and will create difficulty for public and government. The Hardik movement in Gujrat has destroyed public property on a large scale and also public working in private sector are effected by this agitation.

    Anarchism can never be accepted . Government has to put an end to this with discussions first and forcefully if needed. Demand for 'reservations' cause friction between castes and classes leading to discrimination which a progressive Nation can never encourage. This would further lead to ' Anti -quota' stirs as seen earlier. There is no end to such demands and if the Govt doesn't take strict action, things are bound to go haywire.

    The word reservation itself gives the feel of being demeaned. It is true that those who avail an opportunity under reservation policy feel great to join an esteemed college or get a job.  This is a great benefit for the applicants who come under the reserved category but on the other hand they forget that they welcome huge criticism from various quarters. The applicants who are truly worthy but remain deprived of an opportunity only because the Indian law makes a privileged way for the students with less talent. They would avail the best resource without their capability which is unacceptable. What a sarcasm!

    This tragedy is basically never ending because the deprived lot has got no say in this country. Though unreasonable, the meritorious students of the general category have to bite the dust. It happens only because the administration is not bothered to raise the quality of its educated citizens and later lacks the quality job holders. See for example an eighty percent holder gets rejected in getting admission to a reputed college while a student of reserved category gets enrolled in the same college with just forty-five percent in his/her kitty. Does this low grader has the potential to become a quality achiever and a professional?

    Providing education should be must till school level and thereafter the ability of an applicant should be the decisive factor. The selection should be entirely based upon the potential of the candidate and reservation policy must not pose any threat to the meritorious lot. This is how India can progress fast and rise high. Reservation is not a sign of progress and it has to be understood that it promotes discrimination among its citizens which in return creates rift among them, quality progress gets obstructed and on the whole India as a nation starts marching towards dark ages.

    Thus, the people who come out on the street and create chaos in favour of reservation system are only bothered about their personal benefit on the basis of caste and not thinking about India at large.

    Opportunist Politicians are always on the look out for greener avenues. Their concerns and interests always revolve around on only one aspect,  " What's in it for me ?"This category of politicians are a menace to Democracy. People select and elect their representatives who sticks to ideologies that promote their interests. In this process people will be disgusted to know their candidate who was elected by them is hopping from one  party to the other searching to serve his own interests, ignoring those innocent unsuspecting people who gave them the power. This kind of opportunist politicians who jump from one party to the other should be banned for life making ineligible for entering the politics.

    This kind of unethical politics should be dealt with an Iron hand by the Government.

    While I am against reservation, it is still necessary for certain classes of people who are way way below the poverty line such as the people who wander through the country in search of employment on seasonal basis such as labourers brought in from various parts for harvesting sugarcane during winter season, children of communities labeled criminals by the British and are still described so in spite of having got independence 65 years ago, people performing acrobatics on streets etc. Reservation for such children is necessary to ensure they get education and also financial assistance to a certain limit. What we now see is people who are financially very sound, use flashy, expensive cars daily still get all reservation benefits because of their caste.

     

    What we need is a system that will meticulously conduct research and surveys of such people, and please do not engage teachers for that job, there are numerous educated, unemployed, able youth who can do it and prepare a realistic statistical report of people who really needs reservation. This should be for basic education upto 10th or 12th std and vocational trades such as carpenters, blacksmiths, leather works etc. Beyond that, higher education should be purely on merit and financial assistance to be given only to the deserving and needy. NO reservation in jobs, that will ensure quality of workforce.

    It will certainly not be liked by many but needs to be enforced because people have gotten into the habit of not taking efforts and working hard, which will take some to get used to. But down the line, cultivating the habit of working hard without any benefits of being in particualr class or caste, is what will take our country towards real progress.

    Everyone like Hardik first says that he will not going to join politics, but at last everyone either join some political party or form his own political party. Such anarchist first play with the feelings of people, promise them that they will fight against system, corruption and will put all politicians in jail if they win with majority and form their own government. But when these type of people come in government, they start doing their work like other corrupt politicians doing.

    Our government shout take strong actions against these anarchists who are destroying public property by Dharnas, and movements.

    Your post reminds about the Indian Bihari community sent to different West Indian islands for harvesting sugarcane by British centuries ago. Those Indians are doing great in every field of life without any reservation.

    The Reservation system when started way back in the 50s post independence was with the intention of bringing the neglected section to the forefront as they needed the push, but now we are into the 69th year of independence and still seem to be in need to support that section with "reservations' and quotas. Instead of having reservations and causing divisiveness would it not be more logical to give compulsory education to all irrespective of their caste and class with monitory support where required based on family income with strict laws against keeping children at home at least till they cross the primary level and thereafter based on their merit they should be screened and filtered. Those with potential but below poverty line can be provided scholarships till they complete their Education. Govt does need to look deeply into it.

    @Sunil, those people are indeed doing great in West Indies and other far flung countries of the world where they were taken as common labourers because eventually they were absorbed in the local communities, educated and emancipated and became an integral part of those respective communities. Sugarcane labourers in India, on the contrary, still live in temporary shacks made from woven mats, move around from plantation to plantation during each season, are exploited financially by the contractors, the contractors sexually molest and harass their women etc. the list is endless. On even a slightest hint of revolt or demand fro justice, the whole settlement of labourers is burned overnight as a lesson. So if anyone needs reservation, it is these people and similar other types of communities that suffer the same fate.
