Okay, I've pretty much sworn not to blog any more about this reservation thing because I've pretty much said all I had to say on the topic already (see here and here) and I haven't heard any arguments that lead me to think I need to reconsider my position.
Despite that, I can't help linking to the blithering idiocy of this interview by Arjun Singh which I'm sure you've all seen already, but just in case. It would be hilarious that a cretin like this is the minister for education, if it weren't so incredibly tragic.
Here's the question I wish Karan Thapar had asked Singh: If there's no point debating something after it's been passed by the parliament because then it's a given, and there's no point discussing future actions of parliament because the issues are still being looked into and no final decision has been reached, then when exactly are public issues to be discussed? Or can we take it that public debate is no longer a luxury that the Government of India wishes to engage in?
