I believe that with intentions of shaping a better country for the forthcoming generations, the fathers of our constitution may have done their level best. I also agree that those people must be very thoughtful and wise individuals of the time. But, definitely far-sightedness was not one of their strong points. They probably had thought that reservation would bring equality and would eliminate the age-old differences between various castes. But the ill-effects of reservation have been so prominent that the original motive of providing reservations has been lost. The quality of government colleges or organizations have suffered a severe blow due to the so-called social reform "reservation". How do you suppose to bring an end to the evils of caste system when you ask for the caste of an individual in every form that he fills? In the present scenario, reservation has become the tool of politicians to employ the "divide and rule" policy and exploit the "adult franchise" power of people. It is a matter of concern and I invite the intellectual population of India to consider it seriously.

It is not a new thing for me to have come face-to-face with the situation I am now in. The same situation occurred when I was in class 10th and when I was in 12th and when I finished my engineering preparation. As a matter-of-fact, today is the same condition. The common thing between these situations is that a far-sighted decision taken at any of the moments would have given me freedom from such situations arising in future. By the way, let me elucidate the situation first. The problem is that a point has again come in my life where a decision has to be taken which will decide the future course of my life. Only this time, the decision deals with a very large part of my life. Now as I am about to enter the final year of my college, it is the right time to do some introspection and find out what is it that I will do all my life!
