Should Caste based Reservation system be abolished?

The reservation is an idea that was ignited in the minds of our forefathers and the wise people who wrote our constitution. The ideology behind this was to give an added benefit to the deprived classes of the society and help them to join the main stream crowd of the nation. But ever since the politicians brought this to the world of the politics, the whole meaning has changed. The reservation, today, is not just a perk for the deprived classes but it has been something that mars the rights of the deserved people more than anything.

Failure of the policies and selfish motives of the policy makers have led to wrong reservation procedure. Ultimately, the powerful people snatches away the desired right of the weak people and hence, the benefits are enjoyed by already prospered group. Thus, it is the need of the hour to take some decent and hard steps to eradicate this unwanted snake in the collar.

If I take a tour of the history and evaluate the decisions then, caste based reservation was never on the mind of our constitution makers. They carried a soft corner for the deprived people who were never in the decision making of the society. When the time came to elevate them, it was found that particularly, the people of that caste are more or less on the same page and this laid the foundation of the caste based reservation.

As the time change and with its evolution, it fosters few changes for the betterment of the society. Removing caste based reservation is again, one of such change we people need in India. The development of the nation can never be up taken with just the bunch of wrong people who make it to top position utilising the benefits of the reservation.

Caste Reservation System

Now let us look at our country without reservation.

Idea might seem fascinating for a major of those who have been adversely affected by this undue advantage but wait. The hard truth of my nation is that we are still lacking on providing even the basic necessities to major of our population. In this scene, if we remove the reservation completely, we are opening up the ways to exploit them by the existing clergy men irrespective of the caste and the creed. What then? Are we heading back to the idea of reservation? Yes, indeed. But to the basic idea of the reservation which was put on the floor by the wise men who sat down to write the Indian constitution. They planned on providing a fair chance to underprivileged and thus, what we require at the moment is the reservation but on the economical basis. It is the time when we adopt our brothers and take our human friends irrespective of the caste and accept them in their forms sitting next to us.

Reservations based upon the economic strata and the change of the mindset is the key to the betterment and to settle the future of the nation. The adaptation and the change in the mindset is what require equally along with reservation on annual income.

  1. When reservation came to force, it was decided that after the achievement of the objective of this concept, it will be removed. Say in 20-30 years from them. Unluckily, in the name of vote bank politics, caste system and political malpractices diminished the main objective of the idea of reservation. It was seen as a tool to win over the voted in every election and to portray self as a messiah of the poor and backward. I feel it is the time, we need to reconsider our reservation policy.
