data does not lie. more oppressed die. more oppressed are denied access to facilities, social relationships and opportunities than us. the “unreserved” general category consists of 20% in this country. this 20% gets 50% reservation under the “unreserved”, “open” quota (where 95% of the seats are filled by the general category). this is the real reservation.

financial competence to pay university fees is a privilege. there is no merit there. everyone uses benefits. time has come to stop berating those that are trying their hardest to progress.

the biggest trick the devil which is the government ever pulled is to pit us against each other instead of asking the government to create more jobs and give us more seats. the reserved are not eating from our share. they are taking what is rightfully theirs. it is the pie itself that is small for which all of us should call out the government & the system. as one. that will abridge the gap between them/us. that is human. that is what we should thrive for. and fight for.
