    You are an achoot if you make yourself one, irrespective of caste, creed. If you believe you are victimized and go around making inane comparisons then you indeed are a mental "Achoot", in other words, the equivalent of an Islamist who keeps thinking how he has been "victimized" and how his honour and dignity needs salvage. Tell me, are the Brahmins sitting and whining about how they have been run out of TN and different states, being the convenient foil for all sorts of manufactured rage?

    Shoot, the biggest whiners in India are often chaps like you Adux, who have had an easy ride on all sorts of GOI sops (in general terms, since y'all do have it dont you, even if you personally didnt use them), and while talking of buying fancy toys and this and that, talk about discrimination! Who is discriminated against, you or the poor Rajput in Rajasthan, who sends his kids to the Army for do wakt ki roti? He cant even afford education, but here you are, talking of roads in Glasgow, probably come from some well off family...but when Srini mentions the need to eliminate caste and push for economic benefits on the basis of poverty, all you can think of is your caste based identity, and that too hyperbole based around the same?!

    And given post independence violence, its a fair claim to suggest OBCs et al have done far more violence than any UC ethnic group. Do think of that before you get all angry! Food for though eh? In fact, the GOI is afraid to send PAC into communal regions because it is staffed with "oppressed" LCs who ...incidentally...turn out to be very trigger happy when it comes to the "other", namely Muslims. What do you make of that?

    Its all very hypocratic. The one thing that I still can't possibly imagine is how the heck can one say that end this "achoot" discrimination and then, at the same time, claim to be an "achoot" and demand to be treated special.
    The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.

    Caste based reservation should be thrown into the toilet. Most of these benefits are anyways being availed of by the creamy layer, kids of GOI officials, Politicians and big shots who routinely play up their lower caste identity (as and when it suits them) and loot the Indian exchequer dry.

    I know of so many kids from rural India, absolutely brilliant, who got nowhere and are stuck without even proper education, whereas their counterparts, walking around on the basis of a SC/ST identity, flaunting wealth and flunking exam after exam with GOI/ state Govts picking up the tab.

    If caste has to disappear from India, the stupid GOI should abolish the damn lists and only provide affirmative actions based on economics.

    I agree.

    I spoke to Gawai of the RPI since he was supposed to be the head of Mahars, my troops.

    He conceded that the whole thing is lopsided in favour of those who have benefited.

    "Some have learnt many Tricks of sly Evasion, Instead of Truth they use Equivocation, And eke it out with mental Reservation, Which is to good Men an Abomination."

    I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.
