WHAT IS QUOTA INDIA?

Some people are confused when I use the word “Quota India” too often for their comfort.

By quotaised India I mean a perverted India where justice is hard to come by even in courts, let alone in your work place, school, college or in temples where God is said to be watching the fun. Merit has no value and has been made IRRELEVANT and then the irrelevance sanctified by the Supreme Court, also know as the Apex Court. Caste and religion take predominance and are always in forefront wherever you go from your kid’s kindergarten admission to a six-foot burial place in the graveyard; where police are heartless brutes dressed in khaki when you shout your life is in danger; an helpless road accident victim is left to die after reaching an hospital because “HE or she showed extreme HELPLESSNESS” and as punishment HAD TO BE MADE A FIT CASE TO BE IGNORED AND EVEN ASSAULTED IF SUCH A NEED AROSE; where someone getting lynched openly by a mob dies when the police watch with a macabre interest.

FIVE STAR BRUTALITY
———————————
{{{{{ There is a five star super speciality hospital near my house and it is one of the topmost hospitals in Ahmedabad and I was one of those lucky few to have gone for a press conference there when some top American heart surgeons visited the hospital a decade ago.

A couple of years ago a road accident victim was rushed in a critical condition to that hospital. First the gatekeeper will not allow the victim inside arguing that there are procedures to be followed; then after barging in the doctors refused to treat the victim unless the police first came in and registered a complaint. The relatives of the victim who had by then come to the hospital cried, shouted and pleaded for urgent attention. NOTHING HAPPENED AND NOTHING WAS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN. IT WAS AS IF THE DOCTORS HAD THEIR HEARTS MADE OF GRANITE.

THE DOCTORS BEHAVED WORSE THAN THE ISIS. To cut a long story short the unlucky victim died. The relatives vented their fury throwing stones, bricks and what not in a desperate last ditch consolation that this will be a fitting tribute to their dear one who was killed by heartless brutes.

THEN THE MIRACLE HAPPENED. POLICE RUSHED as a doctor called to report vandalism by a bunch of mad people. COPS QUICKLY and efficiently BOOKED THE RELATIVES FOR A CRIME THAT NEVER WAS. THIS IS what I CALL QUOTA INDIA }}}}}

Quota India is a country where everything keeps happening in a topsy-turvy way. What is wrong is made to look right and vice versa.

TO PUT IT SIMPLY QUOTA INDIA CAN BE COMPARED TO A TRAIN THAT IS GOING BACKWARD AWAY FROM YOUR DESTINATION WHERE YOU don’t INTEND TO GO. NO ONE KNOWS AT WHICH STATION IT WILL DROP YOU. YET YOU were forced to pay by some strange rule (or is it the Constitution?) FOR THE TICKET. YOUR DESTINY IS as UNCERTAIN AS THE DESTINY OF A PRISONER WHO IS GRIPPED BY ISIS THUGS. YOU ARE told somewhat comfortingly by some incorrigible optimists THAT THE TRAIN IS TAKING YOU SOMEWHERE AND you ought to BE HAPPY WITH THAT. THAT MEANS — you foolishly rationalize — IT OUGHT TO GO SOMEWHERE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD AND YOU COULD BE ONE OF THOSE LUCKY FEW WHO MAY FINALLY REACH SOMEWHERE.
