Q.

Women comprise almost 50% of the population. Hence, reservation to women should have been 50%. Why do you think they want to reserve only 33% and not 50% seats to women?

In my view this policy of reservation based on sex would be a retrograde and counter productive step. I am afraid this can only happen at the expense of merit / quality. We had enough of religion based reservation policies in this country. Are we not bearing the brunt of this today? Is there a policy of reservation for women in America where women are equal to men in every walk of life? We have a lady as the President of this country. But America did not even have a lady Vice President so far. Therefore is it not a proof that sex is not a limiting factor to attain the top positions in India. Why then this hue and cry for reservation for women. Let therefore introspect whether this is really needed for the country. However participation of women is absolutely essential in every segment. To facilitate this we should set apart a small parentage say 10 % in each and every segment ---parliament, assemblies, administration, judiciary etc for women.

I am not against the women working outside home but i do feel their prime responsibility is their house and when that responsibility is taken care of , then of course they can work outside.And who has stopped them from this? So wha ...more

After 65 yrs of indipendence if we are still fighting for reservation then it is very shame on us.........reservation should be on the basis of financial status but not on catagory basis......that so why we are heading towards a disaster in our country........every body is having right to do any thing and achieve any thing in a right manner based on the quality & qualification.....today the corruption is more due to lack of literacy and knowledge....it is easy to convince a shamy qualified person........if we need a well/perfect and healthy democracy then it should be based on quality and knowledge only not on reservation basis..........
