Quotas

India is a huge country, with varying tastes, traditions and beliefs. From the start, we interact with multiple thoughts and ideas be it faith, festivals or biases.

But when these differences turn out to be beneficial for some, and not so for others... when these differences get documented in the constitution as quotas, financials aids, that's the start of the problem.

Some might say that these quotas are justified....
If I am from a Brahmin family, where the last many generations are educated (even if it was the Vedas earlier, and English education now), the odds that I would get a fair education as against someone whose last few generations have been fighting for survival.... True...
But there is no end to this... with all the differences we have as a society, we will alsways be able to identify some "difference" which will benefit us....

It is important that the government, instead of focusing on such quotas, should try and provide facilities for all.. Providing extra facilities to those having economic difficulties is a better basis for the government to show the bias than castes...

Its actually a vicious circle... as long as the voter keep voting for a candidate because his propaganda involved betterment of a sect, the more a parliament is motivated to make such moves.... 

So the next time you vote, give a thought to the real reason you are voting for the candidate.

Anger

There are always moments when you loose your cool...
When for atleast a split second, you want to shout... 
make the other person realize how annoyed you are...

But is it really worth it ?
Afterall, some wise man has rightly said...

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
