Broadly speaking there are no difference between #BJP and #Congresses
on vision for better India, after congress supported the quota bill in the
parliament despite the fact that, this is unconstitutional and Supreme Court had
categorically set the 50% cap for the reservation. This is unfortunate to see
the substandard debate in the parliament on the 10% of reservation. Government
has failed to give any substantial evidence/ data, why they are pushing
reservation for economically weaker section of the so called “upper caste”?
It’s interesting to observed, most of the political party supported this weak
argument of the government. Even, BSP and SP supported this argument of the government.
Only RJD opposed this move in the parliament, but their voice was not heard because,
they don't have numbers in the house. Most importantly, Both parties from UP
like SP and BSP given free ride to BJP on this move, this might be strategic move
by #Bua-Bhatiga, to stop BJP for gaining edge in UP.

He was one of the most popular alumni of Tata Institute of Social Science, Mumbai. I had my first meeting with Jerome at India International Center, ( IIC) New Delhi.

I have knowing many people, I can not claim, all of them are my friend but we tried to understand each other. There are two kinds of people on this brink. One is socially oriented and the second is socially committed. Here I am not diminishing one from the o
He was not only my teacher but mentor, guide, and one of my great admirers, for what I have been doing after finishing my study? That was his personality, he was never hesitant to give respect and dignity, no matter who are you? What kind of relationship is with him? My personal connection with him was far before I meet him personally, I am basically from rural India, where I studied till my graduation, we had kind of serious news reading habit in our family, and my father also guided us to read the editorial pages including writing on social or political issues. Those days, Rizwan Sb, used to write for Hindustan, Hindi, since, I was a regular reader, that was interesting for me to understand the social-political aspect of the marginalized social group on which he usually writes. When I got admission in MA- History in 2003 at Jamia Millia Islamia, that was transformative and dream comes true for me to study at Central University, at the same time I was very nervous in the Capital o
