What is the idea behind the reservation policy?The affirmative action has been again highlighted by the supreme court against the idea of merit which is based on marks but not on the social context. The social context implies the social confidence one gets in tangible and intangible form which decide mostly the form of education one gets and the type of profession one aspires to. The progressive nation should not support the reservation at any cost but for that the caste system should dismantle. Because it provides the skewed advantage and the disadvantage to people based on social hierarchy. We wouldn't realize or accept it unless we are asked to drop our caste forever. The backwardness while being in a certain class remains for ages and that backwardness can only be lessen with proper representation in various sectors. With one family understanding the values of education is not the sudden realization but the formed perception through ages in some castes and not in the other. The best example to understand this could be the white people visiting the country and we getting enchanted with their English even though they could be from a non English country like Russia but we would consider them better than us. Why? Because we know through ages that we are ruled by Britishers and that feeling of backwardness travels through generations translating still in our minds today.
Same is with some classes who don't find compatible with present system of education because they don't have enough contacts or presence to tell them education is the best thing for them and there is no supreme in anything not even this education system with set of limited evaluations technique.
