Apartheid Glorified


Quota Oh quota,
Worst than pota,
Racism strengthened and legalized,
Apartheid glorified and constitutionalized.

Islamic quota, Christian quota,
Harijan quota, tribal quota,
Backward quota, handicapped quota,
Regional quota, linguistic quota.

Quota madness welcomed,
Divisive forces institutionalized,
Ah poor meritorious soul! If this be so,
No end or balm for this woe,
No peace for bright wood,
No cure for thy mood.

    Dr. Yogesh,

    I think that there are still so many racists around and many of them in powerful positions. But I like to believe that a kindness revolution is going on silently in this world which is fast becoming unstoppable. Racists (and allied oppressors) are slowly becoming a minority and many of them are falling, real hard (Report) Reply

    Nice concept. Apartheid is everywhere. The moment we create quota to be more inclusive the more unrealistic are the social consequences. The less fair the playing field. Inclusion not by merit but by numbers listed in quota. (Report) Reply
