Reservations - The dark clouds that cover our future!!!




MBA - Masters Of Business administration , a very coveted degree , by many- be it from the IIMs or from the private colleges.
Now when we are in the final and sometimes even in the Pre final year, placements start knocking the doors of the students. Then the college also sees to it that the students of their college are trained prior to these campus placemnts .GD these days have become a great tool for the companies to tap out the right kind of people for their job. Talking about the GD i remeber a discussion that went on in one of our training session where in we had an idea of discussing about the reservation system that the government is planning for ...
That is some issue that i am TOTALLY AGAINST NOT JUST-BUT I REALLY WANT TO ABOLISH THE WHOLE SYSTEM .
What is this that's happening in our country ???? Where are we heading for ????The world trying to move at the speed of light! and we are talking about the reservation system when Merit is what it counts . The nasty politicians are those who use the reservation system as a trump card for their stability in politics. They try this out as a bait to cheat the people and then go on in for the "divide and rule" policy . What is the whole system about - we have the caste and creed in our country which i would name as the Black mark in the progress of any country . This castism is a big problem .Ok fine let that be there but what is that about the reservations on the basis of caste???? Well the real need is for the people of the economically backward sector and not those who are backward in terms of caste.
The economically troubled people are still in the same condition. If at all the so called political leaders have any idea or desire to develop the society by supporting these so called down trodden people , then they need to target the people of poor economic condition who when helped will be able to progress .

I had read articles about this and something i happened to read was actually a comment given by some reader and i really liked it
It was the last sentence of that comment and it goes as ".We should demand reservation for those who realy need that.We should demand a SURNAME FREE india so that KARNA & ARJUNA both can serve the nation equally without any BIAS."

The surprising fact is that in Tamil Nadu the minority sect has the majority and how can this work out ? Here we have 69 % in the minority and the rest (31%) in majority .
I am ending this here ( am too late!!!) with one question that is bothering me .. How do u classify that a child born is a from a backward or forward class?? If born to Krishna and Radha , the child is Hindu . If born to Michael and Mary , the child is Christian and if born to Abdul and Amina , the child is a Muslim. So now what calss does the child who is an orphan belong to when he /she doesn't know the parents??Hmm the answer what may be actually told be that it depends on where the child grows ... But the actual fact is just a " ? "
Do comment on this ,... :)

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M
