Many of us are aware of the many contributions of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj of #Kolhapur to social reform, including the introduction of #reservation in government jobs for #backwardclasses in 1902. But #DidYouKnow what triggered this drastic step? 1/4
While performing religious rituals in the Panchganga River in October 1899, he noticed that the priests were not chanting mantras from the Vedas, but from the Puranas. The explanation given to him by the palace priests left him aghast! 2/4
They explained that only #Brahmins had the right to perform ‘Vedokta’ rituals and since Marathas were ‘Shudras’, they could perform rituals only from the Puranas. 3/4

The biggest discrimination in India is #EnglishApartheid. The State funds medical colleges, engineering colleges, MBA, High Courts, in English-medium *only*, excluding 90% of the population.

If you care about #SocialJustice why not #Reservation for Tamil-medium instead?
The fact is all the "Tamil pride" of the so-called "Dravidian" parties is for lip-service only. The agenda is English and Christianization. That's the #DravidianModel (itself a colonial construct). That's what the @PWilsonDMK et al fight for.
I thought they made them English medium, at least partially.

Sr Adv Arvind Datar: Since time is short, should I just give bullet points?
SC: Yes
Datar: They formed a committee in 2006 that gave a report in 2010. I'll call it the Pandey report as Ajay Bhushan Pandey led it.
The Sino committee came to the conclusion after extensive study..
Datar: The commission consulted state govt and UTs, NGOs and social leaders. It contains exhaustive discussion of each and every party. For eg Tamil Nadu said we have 69% reservation we don't need economic one at all.
It's very detailed, they've gone state wise.

<Reservation in Promotion: October 5>

Today, the SC will hear a group of 130 petitions concerning the implementation of the Court's decision in M Nagraj v Union of India (2006).

In M Nagraj, the Court held that SC/STs can be granted reservations in promotion.

The Court partially upheld the Nagraj judgment in Jarnail Singh (2018). It struck down the requirement for States to demonstrate backwardness when granting reservation in promotion.
It also introduced the idea of creamy layer exclusion.

In the present petitions, the Court had previously ordered all parties to appraise the Attorney General about their issues with the policy. The AG was directed to consolidate these issues for the Court's deliberation.

Yesterday I was on 2 Tamil TV debates on 27% #Reservation announced for OBC candidates in UG&PG Medical admissions.What struck me more than claims from panelists that it was their party/movement's efforts that forced Central Govt to announce this,was their take against EWS quota
EWS was passed in Parliament with almost all parties incl.Congress,CPM, BSP,SP,TMC etc. supporting it. Yet in TN most Dravidian parties have a problem with it that no one in the rest of India seems to have.(Like for NEET). Mind you EWS does not touch the existing quotas but still
they oppose it. I supported 27% reservation announcement and said it is likely to reach the needy as creamy layer among OBC wd be excluded and those who need help the most wd get the benefits. I also supported the EWS quota. Then I wondered why only Dravidian parties opposed it.

What is the #reservation in AIQ (All india quota) in state seats.

There are three different kinds of seats available in all Medical Colleges across the country. In the Government Medical Colleges of the country, there is a 15 percent All India Quota.
Suppose 100 seats are there in any state govt medical college,

15 seats will be reserved for AIQ
Now new reservation policy
From these 15 seats 15% will be for SC that means 2 or 3, 7.5% for ST that means 1 or 2, 27% for obc that means 4 seats and 10% for EWS mean 1 or 2

Now remaining 85 seats there was already reservation applied in Admission since Last time when admission in reservation was brought.

काल मी OBC reservation'मंडल आयोगा'चा थ्रेड लिहीला होता.वाचला नसेल तर ह्या थ्रेडच्या शेवटी त्याची लिंक दिलीय.आज त्याचा दुसरा भाग लिहीला आहे.आरक्षण लागु झाल्यावर देशात काय घडलं,दंगली,नवीन नेत्यांचा उदय,अडवाणी रथयात्रा,सरकार स्थापना, इंदिरा सहाणी खटला इ.

जसं व्हिपी सिंगने १५ ऑगस्टला OBC आरक्षणाची घोषणा केली तस देशभरामध्ये आणि खासकरून उत्तर भारतात याच्यावर तीव्र प्रतिक्रिया उमटल्या.👇
१)मंडल आयोगाने अहवाल बनवताना आधार म्हणुन १९३१ ची जनगणना वापरली ज्याला अनेकांनी विरोध केला.कारण १९३१ ला जो समाज मागास होता तो आता मागास असेलच अस नाही
**यादव समाज:-
पुर्वी यादव मागास होते पण देश स्वतंत्र झाल्यानंतर UP, Bihar मध्ये यादवांचा राजकीय प्रभाव भयंकर वाढला होता.पण मंडल आयोगानुसार यादव मागास आहेत.
**जाट समाज:-
राजस्थान,हरयाणामधील जाट समाज शैक्षणिकदृष्ट्या मागास असला तरी सामाजिकदृष्ट्या प्रचंड प्रभावशाली होता. Image

Last night, news broke after a whistleblower exposed that #ICE is forcibly sterilizing women in its camps, many of whom are Indigenous Central & South Americans. This is horrific, but it’s hardly surprising. Let’s examine why. THREAD 1/x
The US has a long history of forcibly sterilizing #BIWOC & indigent & mentally ill women, in addition to its long history of committing acts of #genocide against #BIPOC through the theft, forced displacement, & sale of children. See Laura Briggs, Taking Children. 2/x
But eugenics & #colonialism are not only part of #UShistory, the US was the template for a number of Nazi projects. Timothy Snyder argues successfully in Black Earth that Hitler’s concept of lebensraum, or living space, was a colonial model based upon US Western Expansion. 3/x

This is why we need to change to horizontal reservation system.
If we set 20 seats as reservation, no matter which quota is used, only 20 people will be included. That means that there will be more seats available in general category for general public.
So, you have say 4 categories with seat allocation:
A 20
B 20
C 10
General: rest
If a person belongs to category A and C, that one person will added against both A and C.
If 25 people belonging to category A qualify, 20 will be against quota of A, and rest 5 will be in general.
What’s the best way to operate this system:
Collect all information from candidates. At this point, no one knows which category they will get an option, except those who are certain only general category applies to them.

#SocialJustice in India.

#India is one of the most diverse nations in the World. There are several social issues associated with the 1.3 Bn strong population of India.

🔶Crimes Against Women: Women are sexually harassed, paid less as compared to men, experience partiality at work, trafficked, etc.

To safeguard them, acts like the Dowry Act, Domestic Violence Act, Maternity Benefit Act, etc. have been enacted.

But in recent years, these acts meant to safeguard women have been misused by them to torture their husbands and in-laws. False rape cases have also been filed to harass innocent men.

How is this ‘just’? Are men not a part of this society? Do they not deserve justice?
