With gradually increasing health consciousness and environmental issues strangling multinationals, the colas of the world are beginning to lose their fizz... While it might be ages before these colas are banned, the companys are sure gearing up to the future. Atleast Pepsi Co is. The other day I came to know their Cheetos is now largely made with soy proteins...and now this!

I am happy that they have some concerns in life other than how to make dogs, cats and rats drink colas!

...had there been reservations!

Ekalavya would have gained admission as Drona's student. He would have beaten Arjun to become the world's greatest archer. Highly disappointed and thoroughly helpless, Arjun would have sought admission under a much more expensive Guru, Parasurama. Consequently he would have lead a miserable life after being admitted in a school of archery that not only cost him more but also wasn’t in the recognized list of schools to participate in Draupadi's Swayamwara. Arjun would have never met Draupadi and she would have never been Paanchali.

In the meanwhile Ekalavya would have lost his right thumb, brought all his tribal colleagues into the school, participated in the Swayamwara, married Draupadi and lived happily ever after!!!

Disgusting!

Arjun Singh is sitting and farting in his chair while the anti-reservation agitation is raging in the country. What is the government suggesting? That we pay further for the blasted atrocities that Drona committed 1000 years ago? There are adequate if not grossly overflowing reservation policies in the education system already. If the OBC's can’t make it into a 'prized' stream on their own MERIT (read acquiring the expected/accepted cut off mark/%) then TOO BAD.

Really, looking at the pace of the current agitation, the government might be letting things go too far. If you observe the map carefully, there are already a couple of southern states who have either remained neutral or have shown full support to Arjun Singh in this noble cause like our good old Tamil Nadu (a state which is forehead deep in casteism and is now strongly held by a political party that favors the elevation of the so called lower castes!). Given this rate the protests will grow several monster heads. Yes, there will be Muslim, Christian, Hindu, North Indian, South Indian, Tamil, Brahmins, Iyer, Vadama,Iyengar, Vellala, Rich, Poor, (unfortunately) middle class, male, female, others, losers and the government will be successful in duplicating the British administrative model of Divide and Rule. The politicians of this country will screw us upside down and we will orgasm at the end of it all (in pain or pleasure would depend) because we happily voted for them all.

Reminds me of what Roosevelt said, "A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education he may steal the whole railroad". Go ahead and give them 90% reservation. We will after all protest now, get hit, and shot at, beaten and arrested. Then we will pay for the sin of voting you to power. For all your political games - Hum Hai na. (Guinea Pigs).Hum Hai na.
