I get it, historically marginalized communities have faced discrimination and oppression. But should we really be giving certain people an unfair advantage just because of their caste? It's like we're perpetuating a cycle of discrimination in the name of social justice.
Merit should be the ultimate criterion for admission into prestigious institutions like IITs and NITs. It's about talent, hard work, and skills, not about someone's caste. By implementing caste-based reservations, we're overlooking deserving candidates from other backgrounds who may have worked twice as hard to achieve their goals.
What about the general category students who have to compete fiercely for limited seats? It's like they're being penalized for circumstances beyond their control. Is it fair to prioritize someone based on their caste rather than their actual abilities? #reservation #india
