With trenchant evidence from the Archives of the Archives of the 1930s and 40s from Censuses, from judgements of the Supreme Court, with telling facts about the situation that has already come to prevail on the ground, Arun Shourie nails the perversion of the Constitution, and urges a complete reversal. The weaker sections must be helped, but by altogether different methods. A must for our times. A must for strengthening our country.

Book Description Rupa Publications India Pvt. Ltd., 2006. Hardcover. Condition: New. How is it that what was explicity forbidden by the Constitution- classification based on cast ? has become the rule? How is it that what were enabling provision have become mandatory minima ? Where does the figure 50 per cent come from ? How is that in practice it is exceeded blatantly ? Are the benefits not being hogged by a few ,the better ?off among these castes? Has the ?creamy layer? been actually hived off? How is that what were begun as reservations in promotion also? How did this become a right to accelerated promotions? How did that become a right ?accelerated promotions with consequential seniority?? How did that become a right to have the prescribed standards diluted ?to the point of being waived altogether? Even in educational institutions. Is this any way to become a knowledge super- power?? As there has been no caste-wise enumeration and tabulation since the 1931 Census, where does this mythical figure --?OBCs are 52 per cent of the population? come from? And what did the 1931 Census itself say about its cast ?wise figures? Printed Pages: 405. Seller Inventory # 29710
