Aarakshan – The Reservation policy of IndiaThe new Hindi film of Mr. Prakash Jha with Mr. Amitabh Bacchan is Aarakshan. Itis a very good news that the film is based on “Reservation policy”. I am really notaware of the outcome. The topic is very sensitive and I still remember theshooting of students by V.P.Singh’s government in 1988 or so.If you have seen it or have heard about, please try to see or get details about it.I posted this letter earlier but could not on your blog, hence writing again.This letter was send to Prime Minister, Mr. M.M.Singh, Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, LateShri Arjun Singh – then minister for human resources, and many others.ALAS! No one read.I sincerely hope that you and the director read it.On a serious note: Please reconsider your stand on Reservation:3000 thousand years ago, when the Pandavs were in exile, and thirsty. They founda pond, where one by one, all Pandavs became unconscious – by the Yaksh, theowner of the pond.The famous story of Yaksha questioners.The First question Yaskh asked to king Yudhisthir,” who is a Brahman”?Yudhisthir replied,” A man is a Brahman by KARM and not by BIRTH”.Emperor Chadragupta Morya came from a ST. His descendent “Ashok the Great”is on every seal of Indian government. The most respected Maharani Ahilya baiHolkar ( whole Holkar clan, Sindhiya ( shinde), Giakwad and Bhosle ( to best of myknowledge) were from lower castes. Kabir, Raidas, Rahim, Soordas, Jaysi,Gyandev, Narsing Mohta and many more were not from higher castes. What wasthe cast of Sai Baba, Mata Anandmai, Sadhu Vaswani, and many spiritual leaders,no one knows. Christ protecting a prostitute, Bhagwan Ram eating KUBARI keBER, The Kewat hugging Lord Ram, The lord krishna eating rice with Sudama, aresymbolic examples of no caste barrier.
Caste has got nothing to do with the progress. It is the opportunity availed by, andat an opportune time, by a hard working homosepian ( of any caste, colour, creed,race, religion, nation or any other variable which keeps on dividing us) to succeedin life, and enrolled his name in the list of hall of fame.I can’t imagine a day when there will be one common universal language, onecommon currency, no LOC anywhere on the mother earth. The Faith (religion) willbe an individual choice, and not by birth. No public display of power of GOD in theform of rituals. Demolish of all temples of all religions. Rituals & customs shouldbe strictly personal. There should be Food, clothing, electricity, water & sheltersfor all. This “blue planet turns into haven”. Life will be shear enjoyment,exploration, discovery, and a delight to live long.As long as we identify ourselves in these compartments - the discrimination willnever stop. There will always be a House of Lords and House of Commons, agentle man and a commoner, a rich and a poor, a Brahmin and a Shudra,Protestants and Catholics, Siyas and Sunnies, Jews and Buddhist, Sun worshiper,Moon worshiper and Stars worshiper.Is there is any possibility of getting rid of these five fundamental evils:The War industry,The Religion industry,The insurance industry,The medical industry,The power political industry.All these evils are based on one common philosophy; Fear psychosis & Hopeselling.The biggest killer/murderer of Homosepians was Homosepians in the name ofPatriotism. Fight for your mother land ( which could be as small as an inch of aland or as big as whole Africa, Asia, Latin America and all black, non English,uncivilized land of people.The most wonderful industry is religion industry. All those acts which aresupposed to be a sin on the earth will be provided to you in the heaven - what a
wonderful idea.Understanding the inner self leads to a scientific quest to understand god - themethod is (channel of thoughts) called religion. Is there is any possibility thatreligion of whole world become one, like all scientific subjects are sameeverywhere, be it physics, chemistry, biology, or any scientific quest? How Godsdiffer from place to place, person to person? How god of one becomes strongerthan the God of others? And if it so then, let Gods themselves decide who is thestrongest and then order us to follow him to the path of salvation. Why one killanother in the name of same god.The hope selling and fear psychosis: is a wonderful commercialization of humannature. The medical industry creates patients by fear psychosis and then giveshope of treatment. The irony of the situation is that, a person once diagnosed as apatient, is a patient for rest of his life. Be it a cervical spondylosis, or lumbar disksyndrome in a 20 years old girl. She is labeled as a patient for rest of her life. Bypublic awareness program, we create more patients to treat, so that there is anunending supply of Costumers. You are borne as a patient and you will die as apatient. You are not allowed to take birth without your mother taking drugs. Godwill refuse to accept you in haven if you have not received any medication beforedeath.Might is always right, whether it is muscle, money, or knowledge. Power andpowerless, born as a ruler or born to be ruled, where is the equality. This wordequality is very elusive. There can never be equality. This is law of nature whichcan’t be changed. This inequality is the incentive to move forward. It is Law ofsurvival of fittest. It is the purification of genetic coding through natural selection.Where is the reservation for powerless in the nature?Even if a brightest human takes over the control of League of Nations, powerpolitics will always be there (everything is fair in love and war). I can’t imagine aworld without discrepancies.Opportunity can be created, but it has to be availed by the person to succeed.That’s the reason the jobs created are not filled. Why more and more, year afteryear, repeating the same mistake. It is against the law of nature. People selected
through Quota system will always be considered as incompetent, inferior, and aman without a sense of self respect.He will always be isolated and suffer in the eyes of commons. This will be aninjustice to a hard working person, who genuinely reached a height by his skill andhard labor. It’s a psychological trauma. His demand is not money, he just want astatus of equal rights like everyone else. Rest he will manage with his capability.God has given equal brain to all.Reservation in higher education is like providing top class food to a bilateral aboveelbow amputee. My request is to first provide him artificial arms, he will find outfood of his own taste.Law of “survival of fittest” works all the time in the nature. Let it work and weshould not play the God-player’s role.I hope a brighter, healthier and happier future for all.With hope for a better tomorrow,Vinod Naneria
