जातीय आधार पर दी जाने वाली आरक्षण व्यवस्था खत्म की जाये

विषय – मौजूदा जातिगत आरक्षण व्यवस्था की समीक्षा हेतु ज्ञापन

आरक्षित सीट से चुनाव जीते ज्यादातर सांसद या विधायक हर बार आरक्षित सीट से कई-कई दफा चुनाव लड़ते हैं या फिर उनका कोई परिजन उसी सीट से चुनाव लड़ता हैं जाहिर सी बात है वो कभी नहीं चाहेंगे की आरक्षण खत्म हो. आरक्षण से बने आईएएस, पीसीएस, डॉक्टर, इंजिनियर अपने बच्चों को अच्छे स्कूल में पढ़ाने के बावजूद प्रतिसपर्धाई परीक्षा में आरक्षित सीट से बारम्बार लाभ लेते हैं जिस कारण से गरीब अभाव में पढ़ा जरूरतमन्द बालक उसका लाभ लेने से वंचित रह जाता है.जाहिर सी बात है वो भी कभी नहीं चाहेंगे की आरक्षण खत्म हो.
कुछ वर्षों से एक नया चलन चल पड़ा है अधिकांश राजनैतिक दल आरक्षण का प्रलोभन देकर विभिन्न जाति के लोगों को गुमराह करने का काम कर रहे हैं यह जानते हुए की तय सीमा 50% से अधिक आरक्षण देना सम्भव नहीं है. परिणाम स्वरुप देश में अराजक स्थिति पैदा की जाती है जानमाल का नुकसान भी होता है.

·         दुनिया में भारत के अतिरिक्त कोई ऐसा देश नहीं है जहाँ जातीय आधार पर आरक्षण दिया जाता हो. आरक्षण व्यवस्था ब्रिटिश शासन में देश व् समाज विभाजित करने की योजनाबद्ध साजिश थी जो पुरानी मद्रास प्रेसिडेंसी द्वारा 1765 से शुरू हुई 1901 में महाराष्ट्र के सामंती रियासत कोल्हापुर में साहू जी महाराज द्वारा आरक्षण शुरू किया गया, 1921 में मद्रास प्रेसिडेंसी नें जातिगत आरक्षण का सरकारी आज्ञा पत्र जारी कियाजिसमें 44% गैर ब्राहमण, 16% ब्राह्मण, 16% मुसलमान, 16% भारतीय एंग्लो ईसाई और 8% अछूतों के लिए आरक्षण का प्रावधान किया गया. उक्त आरक्षण से 16% मुस्लिम समाज को अलग करने का अंग्रेजों का षड्यंत्र पूरा हुआ
   
   1935  भारत सरकार अधिनियम के अंतर्गत अनुसूचित जाति के लिए 8% आरक्षण का प्रावधान किया गया जिसमें 429 जातियां सूचीबद्ध की गईं 1947 में हिंदुस्तान विभाजित हुआ आबादी घटी परन्तु 1950 में लागू भारतीय संविधान में इनके लिए 15% आरक्षण का प्रावधान हुआ और जातियों की संख्या बढाकर593 की गई जो आज अर्थात 2015 में बढ़कर 1208 हो गई हैं, अनुसूचित जनजाति के लिए 7.5% आरक्षण का प्रावधान किया गया था जिनकी संख्या 212थी जो 2015 में बढ़कर 437 हो चुकी है. 1979 में पिछड़ी जातियों को 52% आरक्षण मंडल आयोग की सिफारिश के बावजूद, 27% आरक्षण 50% सीमित सीमा होने के कारण दिया गया जिसमें 1257 पिछड़ी जातियों को सूचीबद्ध किया था जो 2006 में बढ़ाकर 2297 की गई है,

1935 भारत सरकार अधिनियम में अनुसूचित जातियों के लिए अलग निर्वाचन क्षेत्र आवंटित किये गए थे, 1950 भारत के संविधान में भी उक्त प्रावधान 10वर्षों के लिए रखा गया जिसको छ: दशकों से हर 10 वर्ष बाद संविधान संशोधन के जरिये बढ़ा दिया जाता है.

हमारा आपसे विनम्रता पूर्वक आग्रह हैं की
  1. जातीय आधार पर दी जाने वाली आरक्षण व्यवस्था खत्म की जाये
  2. राजनैतिक क्षेत्र में दिया जाने वाला आरक्षण खत्म किया जाये
  3. राजनैतिक दलों द्वारा आरक्षण का प्रलोभन दिया जाना प्रतिबंधित हो.
आरक्षण बढ़ने व्  प्रतिनिधित्व के लिए अल्पकालीन माध्यम तो हो सकता है जन्म सिद्ध अधिकार किसी भी स्थिति में नहीं.

धन्यवाद,

भवदीय

Sep 9, 2015 - Shant Prakash Jatav, national president of the movement, says support for his movement transcends caste and religious barriers.

by Sandhya Jainon 19 Apr 2016
While children are entitled to claim quota benefits via the parent eligible under reservation norms, sterile politics could compromise Raja’s academic prospects. He has a prestigious Project Fellowship at the National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad. His well-wishers should not instigate him to be political cannon fodder like Jawaharlal Nehru University student’s union president, Kanhaiya Kumar, who maybe stagnating academically and has grabbed the political lifeline thrown by his communist mentors.

India needs a new discourse on caste, given its growing divisiveness. Amidst the Bihar elections last November, Jamui MP, Chirag Paswan, expressed a desire to not be defined by ‘jati’ identity and limited to being a ‘dalit’ leader. Recently, he urged well-off SC families to renounce quotas for the benefit of the truly needy. Only such original thinking and initiatives can end the corrosiveness of identity politics. Others should take a leaf from this book and refrain from accusing Buddha, one of India’s greatest sons, of rupturing its civilisation. Reducing Buddha’s universal teaching to a casteist ideological weapon must also be firmly repudiated.

Shahid Akhter | ETHealthWorld | 04 April 2016 - Today the patients are educated and the payment of the doctor is now viewed as consumer kind of relationship. It is no more considered a relation built on trust. 
I think its time that our curriculum should give lot of importance on behavioural patterns of the medical education along with the medical ethics. Today the people lack the soft skill of communication with the patient. All such things should become a part and parcel of the curriculum.

March 29: Anniversary of the first meeting of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo










There were pictures of “The Mother”and “Sri Aurobindo” in some of the rooms. The Mother, originally known as Mirra Alfassa, was a disciple and collaborator of ...
I saw people lost in silence meditating, oblivious to me or the world around. The quietness was deafening. A perfect place to find solace indeed.
We spent a few more minutes near the entrance and then made our way to the famous yet modest Canara Coffee House to fill our empty stomachs.
GOOD TO KNOW:
Entry to the Ashram is Free.
Anyone interested in meditation or just exploring the building can visit the Ashram.
No restriction on photography – although I would suggest avoiding so in the meditation hall, given the spiritual nature of the place.
Go visit this place – for the architecture, if not for spirituality!

I have learned to take more pleasure in the company of others by looking for and appreciating the beauty that lies in almost everyone whether they’re talking about the sacred or the profane, the profound or the mundane.
I hope you make it into MIT and get to do the kind of work there that you heart longs to do, but I also hope that, whether you do or don’t, you’ll find life to be richer and more fulfilling than you seem to now, and that other people from all walks of life and levels of intelligence will come to occupy a more vital and pleasurable part of your life than they seem to now.

B'atman vs. Strawman - I still don't have any great compulsion to blog. Frankly, the mystery is what possessed me to march forth with it for ten years -- including every day for much of that span. For starters, how did I find the time? Oh, right. Didn't have to drive my son to school in the morning.


For the past three or four months, I've felt a bit like a shaken snow globe. I keep waiting for the particles to settle into a harmonious new metapattern, but maybe this is the new pattern. Or, perhaps writing is what helped settle the globe. After all, writing is one way to reduce chaos to order: to forge a little microcosmos ex nihilo.

But lately I've felt that the order is something of a sham. Whistling past the graveyard. Just-so stories for cosmic drifters. Verbal campfires that last for a night. Then again, that's what the blog was always about: wrestling with O in order to extract a warm little Nugget of Joy for the day.

Eh. Brainier birds than I have concluded that our most exalted scribbling is so much straw. As Aquinas might say, "get in line." POSTED BY GAGDAD BOB AT 3/04/2016 09:33:00 AM 1 week ago

Commonweal (blog) - ‎Martha Nussbaum, for many years Putnam's colleague at Harvard, has written an essay
he thought that philosophy was for all human beings, a wake-up call to the humanity in us all... that the messy matter of human life should not be distorted to fit the demands of an excessively simple theory, that what Putnam called "the whole hurly-burly of human actions" should be the context within which philosophical theory does its work.
