The all important reservation topic

Before you think of this article as the rant of another higher caste bourgeois writer let me correct your view. I was brought up in a society which did not harbor the feelings of upper and lower classes in the medieval sense. We were brought up to be much more modern and recognize the upper and lower classes in a strictly financial sense. While in the past the distinction was based on birth, now it is more in the bank balance of your pater familias (father to be proper). Now we recognize the ability of money to eradicate the stigma of lower birth. The great characteristic of this system is that once in a while it allows someone to come from the very ditches and rise to the highest peaks of glory
So now coming to the point I was trying to make is that when the current society is financially biased why perform justice on a birth basis. I can point out several instances of Brahmins serving the so called lower castes and also vice versa. Why then the discrimination on the basis of birth. I say let there be reservation but make them on the basis of current financial state rather than what happened a hundred years ago. By visiting the sins of the fathers on the sons you do not erase the sins of the father nor do justice to the sons. Why then I ask a system based on your birth rather than financial standing?
What the people do not seem to realize is that time is in the form of a forward moving line and that changes in the future have no effect on the past but rather ensure the promulgation of the very caste system we are trying to eradicate. Instead of correcting the mistakes committed by our forefathers we are compounding them by repeating them. At least our forefathers had the solace that they had no past history to teach them; What excuse will we use for condoning our actions?

unfortunately, the caste issue is not just based on the economics of the nation.
what we are witnessing is 'politicisation of caste' aimed at what is known as 'vote bank politics'. as much it can't be denied that historically the upper caste have been invariably the upper classes as well;it is also true that caste has always been a major identity marker as well.
comments on your blog would prove the point
it is sad that we as educated indians are not progressive enough to realize what is inherently wrong with us
on a different note: ur entry has prompted me to write in deatil about the mandal issue, how mandal came to identify the list of variables that shall define which sub-caste shall qualify as obc etc.

[size=5][u]Sex Chat[/u][/size]

For sex chat to fulfil every fantasy, call the girl of your choice. If you're into the barely legal nubile,
young girls we can service you completely. Don't let their age fool you - they know what they want and are
just begging for you to talk dirty and get them off. Our young women just love sex chat - giving and receiving.
Listen to these dirty girls sex chat absolute filth about what they would like to do to you, what they are
doing to themselves - in fact sex chat about anything you want to hear. For the mature, call up one of our
filthy females from the granny fanny section. There's nothing that quite makes up for the sexual experience
these women have and they can give it to you in all the colourful, graphic detail through sex chat.
