In this episode of Consti-tuition, Meghnad makes a case in favour of reservations.
Point to note: Reservations are not an employment guarantee scheme, it’s a way to achieve social justice. Justice for who, you ask? It’s about social justice for those who have been marginalised and oppressed for thousands of years and over generations.
The current debate around reservations has been twisted by politicians and circumstances created by politicians. But it would be worthwhile to go back in history, to a time when non-politicians allowed reservations for the marginalised classes in their Princely states.
If you have an uncle who sends you Whatsapp messages about “Reservations are baaad and MERIT IS WHAT WE NEEED”, then you should watch this episode and also show it to him.
