The amazing academic performance of Socially and Educationally Backward Classes: C Mahesh
July 8, 2009
The nation’s politicians (barring a few honourable exceptions) supported by the terrorised media (though one newspaper proclaims that it is pursuing “journalism of courage") insist that the so-called OBCs have been deprived of “education" for centuries are unable to compete in professional exams and hence are in need of protective discrimination. One correspondent writing in the HT (Not a word on quotas is a radical move 26.06.09) alleges that 16% SCs, 8% ST, 41% OBCs 13.4% Muslims (constituting a majority) are relatively disadvantaged groups. Naturally, no evidence is produced in support of this monstrous lie. But when you consider the following information, only one question comes to mind – Is there anything remotely either “socially" or “educationally" backward about these beneficiaries of ‘protective’ discrimination? - In 2008 admissions to the TN Govt Medical Seats 1339 of the 1394 seats (i.e 96.05%) was captured by the SC/ST/BC/MBC. - In 2008 admissions to the TN Govt PG Medical Seats 90 of the 91 seats (i.e 99 %) was captured by the SC/ST/BC/MBC. - In the 2009 CPMT UP Medical Admissions, the topper is an SEBC (i.e OBC), six of the top 10 places are taken by the SECB, 50% of the top 100 places were bagged by the SEBC and 60% of the top 1000 places were grabbed by the SEBC. From the above one can easily understand (i.e if one wants to), the policy of guaranteed quota + right to entry through merit and the caste-based categorisation of super powerful groups in the so-called OBC list will eventually ensure that the Hindus in the unreserved category, (in perhaps a decade) will not be able to secure professional education in India. India will become another TN, where those who capture all seats (i.e SC/ST/OBC/Mino.) are called “weak, backward and marginalized"! And now consider the following new item with the amazing headline taken from the TOI. You are left wondering whether anything is genetically wrong with the so-called OBCs that their superlative academic performances should actually come as a surprise. The correspondent who has compiled this report also mentions that “quota + entry through open seats" has led to the “general category" quota ‘shrinking’. The fact of the matter is the so-called “General Category" have no quota at all. In fact they have no right to higher education in India.
The emerging scenario (already existing in TN for several decades) underlines that Hindus of the Unreserved Category must be given either (a) reservation so that they too be a part of social diversity or (b) they must be officially given the status of minorities entitled to protection of Article 30(1). Atleast that will enable them to live. Citizenship is still a long way off and may perhaps may never be restored to them. OBCs capture six of top ten slots in CPMT
LUCKNOW: Other backward caste (OBC) candidates dominated the Combined Pre-Medical Test 2009, the results of which were declared late on Monday night. Six slots in the top 10, including the topper, were bagged by the OBC candidates. Not only this, about half of the candidates in the top 100 were OBCs while, 60% of the top 1000 positions were bagged by candidates from the segment. What may come as a surprise is that the trend has persisted for the second consecutive year. Last year, seven of the top ten places were bagged by OBC candidates. With this, experts are of the view that all reputed government medical colleges would see more than 50% of seats going to candidates from the OBC category. The reason is that a 27% quota is earmarked for the OBCs taking the CPMT examiniation. Now, top rankers in CMPT take admission through the open (general) category, leaving place for another OBC candidate. In this bid, however, the general candidates quota shrinks. In Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, around 130 candidates of 2008-09 batch hail from the OBC category. Nineteen-year-old Rashmi Singh of Varanasi has topped the exam with 192 marks out of total 200. She secured full marks in botany, 48 each in physics and chemistry and 46 in zoology.
