Short-cut to premier institutions in INDIA

What the heck... was my immediate reaction when i read the article about "Reservations in IIT's, IIM's and Medical colleges". Seems that politicians dont want to leave the Educational community to prosper and compete with the world anymore. Now a days, the entire world recognizes "India" for its brains. Students all-over india strive days and nights to get admitted into these famous and dream institutions and now this -so called "upliftment of the backward"... is going to destroy their dreams forever. Let us think this way.. due to reservations people join in renowed institutions like IIT's and IIM's.. i dont think they will pass all those quality tests these institutions keep as per the academic curriculam. Its my personal experience.. i am doing my masters degree in IIT Bombay.. i am an average student.. its hard for me to even get an average grade here. Suppose, we reduce the cut-off and somehow and let them complete their education.. but i dont think the companies will recruit such people as their employees. I asked this one question to myself.. if I or any of my parents or friends, fall ill for some reason.. will I perfer to go to a doctor who got admitted into a medical college through reservation and passed out because of lowered cut-offs and let him/her to operate on them. Will i want a civil engineer to build my house who survived the tests because of lowered cut-offs. I personally believe.. if govt wants to help the people, dont look at castes.. look at people who need help... provide them with quality school education, provide them with quality food, clothes and shelter. As far as undergraduate and higher educations.. plz leave it for brains.... admissions into premier instituions based on reservations is just like "cutting the branch of the tree in which you are sitting".. which i believe is not a good idea for any reason...

I sincerely pray to god that such thing's shouldnt happen at any point of time in the history of mankind...

Nice post. I second your opinion about the Reservations Bill. Hope the government realises there are NO SHORTCUTS whatsoever to quality education.
