The Reservation Debate - the good part
In addition, the same debate has had many political ramifications. Manmohan Singh has a tough job balancing out demands of coalition politics & good governance.
So much for all the bad news, for all that seems wrong & unjust.
However, if this were China, those students protesting on the streets would have been killed. If this were China, you could not see full front-page reports on National newspapers crying themselves hoarse against the Government. There would be no Tehelka, no Jessica Lal investigation. There would be no Supreme courts ordering reinvestigation of Godhra.
We remain a poor country & there is injustice all around.
But hey, we have a voice.
