I am uneducated

Was reading what Atanu Dey was writing about “Reservations in the Indian educational system” in two parts. The question is, I wanted to understand why he was worried about “Reservations” when there is no such called “Indian Education System”.

Wiki defines “System (from Latin systēma, in turn from Greek ' systēma) is a set of entities, real or abstract, comprising a whole where each component interacts with or is related to at least one other component and they all serve a common objective.”

When there is something then it can comprise into something… it is a myth, the people get educated in India!!!!

As per Education – it is something beyond mere literacy. If someone goes to a school/location regularly and gets to know how to read or write few sentences in any language, he/she doesn’t become educated, but he/she is just literate.

For example – when I was in college we had some useless jerks as lecturers. The fellows who were industry rejects, for sake of some peanuts as salary got into academics. What is the end result – blind leading the blind!?! Most part of the Engineering was just Bunkum - as the fellows did not even understand the proper foundations of Mathematics, leave alone teach us the concepts of basic Computation Theory.

What all I needed for my life – I got in my primary school. The A, B, Cs there were good enough!

Hence, I am just literate and totally UNEDUCATED.
Of course, coming back to the topic::
Reservations - in what ever form, are meant to screw the nation even further. It is not a case of sour grape,
that I do not have any reservation etc, but the very concept of reservation
kills the principle of equality.
