Politics : 33% Reservations for BCs in Assembly and LokSabha

We recently wrote that 'more reservations' are on the way : Politics : More Reservations On The Way in Andhra Pradesh ...! and followed up in a couple of days with another announcement Politics : Kapu students to get Govt. Benefits on par with BCs.

Well, it doesn't stop there.  Here is another, that offers 33% reservation in Assembly and Lok Sabha to BCs, that will soon officially include Kapu community.

The Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Friday adopted a resolution unanimously requesting the Centre to amend the Constitution to provide 33.3 per cent reservation for the Backward Classes (BCs) in the Assembly and Lok Sabha.

The Hindu : Andhra Pradesh News : 33 p.c. BCs quota sought in A.P.

We don't understand. Reservations are brought in by B.R. Ambedkar to uplift and involve those who are socially out casted by so called forward caste groups.

Why don't Political parties take an affirmative action instead?

Now, by recommending 33% reservation for BCs, does all the political parties in Andhra Pradesh confirm that they are socially out casting BC community? If they do, why don't they proactively go ahead and involve BC community in their parties. Why do they need some one to impose a restriction or reservation?  If they believe, BCs are not well represented, its in their OWN hands to correct it. Why not correct it?

Are BCs oppressed because of their caste groups?

What the bill says is, "We still believe in our caste systems. We still continue to oppress people from BCs. We don't believing in giving them any seats in our political party. But we want their votes. So we send this bill to Apex body and see what happens. BCs will be thankful to us for doing this, and we can get away not giving them seats, NOW. "

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
