Ensure Equality for all

Ensure  Equality for all

Sir,

The Indian Constitution guarantees equality to all citizens and thus establishes a rule of non-discrimination by the state in any manner. It ensures the state to treat all citizens equally and allow equality of status and opportunity to all and specifically provides that discrimination on the basis of religion, sex, colour, caste, race or the place of birth etc. Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar had given the reservation to lower caste peoples only for 15 years after the freedom so that they could come to the levels of other who are living a good life.
In my opinion reservation on the basis of caste or religion is one of the negative things about the Indian society which has got used to this system so much that people just do not seem to be able to live without it. The quota system, created to facilitate the poor ends up wrongly being utilized by children of rich, which includes politicians, ministers, businessmen, landlords and high class government officers belonging to specified caste.
Those who know about the reservation facilities and are having the power to enjoy are getting the benefits of reservation; others are getting only to a limited extent.
This type of reservation is making gap between the children of upper and lower caste, students have began to think that a student having reservation will get admission in government colleges and a student without reservation will not even after getting same marks. I think if government want to give reservation it should be for those who can't afford food and who are not able to send their children to school.
Children who have made it into this respected college through quota are unable to cope because they lack the quality. I request the government to take steps which would help students from the weaker section of the society tocompete equally with others.

How long will citizens of Meghalaya be held for ransom

How long will citizens of Meghalaya be held for ransom

Sir,

Nearly two months of bandhs, office picketing, and night road blockades have raucously passed by over the Inner-Line Permit (ILP) issue. However, the majority of those who had participated in the February Assembly polls to exercise their right to franchise have chosen to remain soundless and unheard.
 The pressure groups, on one hand, and the Meghalaya government, on the other, have been throwing mud at each other – one trying to egoistically demonstrate the other is inferior. One trying to show that “my view is the best” and “yours is blatantly undesirable”.

Durga Puja - Compliments & Woes

Durga Puja - Compliments & Woes

Sir,
    Inverniel, Kench's Trace Puja Mandap has always succeeded in showcasing one the best events year in and year out.
 As a resident of the otherwise very quiet street, we are always treated to colourful bliss, musical extravaganza and exciting stage events the week round. However, I also have a slight criticism I want to place on record.
 I am also sure the folks living on Inverniel street would agree with me (excluding the ones living more than 100 meters away from the Mandap).

The pathetic road condition in and around the urban areas of Tura Town has been creating such an intolerable and painful ride with numerous times giving bumps and jerks, encountered by each and every  citizens of Tura Town whenever and wherever while driving or travelling on that dilapidated worse of its kind road.
