In my opinion, this reservations of some of the categories has snatched away the opportunity of many of the deserving people.

In India, where some Caste are look down as inhuman/Untouchable etc, they should be given some compensation because of what they have gone through till now.
The irony is - you are the people who ill-treat them first, and when now you people are getting ill-treated, you have problem with that.
Coming to the Point that the Instigator said about Snatching Opportunities, what about those Opportunities and Rights like that of Equality,Freedom etc that the society has snatched from them.
Its not about Tit for Tat, but its just about healing the pain that is caused to these Castes.

I respect your opinion and would like to answer it one by one.

Firstly,the tradition of the untouchables have almost ended in the country.For them Dr. Baba Saheb ambedkar had started this reservation for only 10 years at the time of freedom but it is carry forward by the politians further uptil now.The reservation should be allotted on the basis of economic condition and not on the basis of caste.Nowadays,most of the people coming under the reserved category have developed a lot.So,no need to give them further such benefits rather its should be provided to those who are still economically backward in other castes.

Secondly,we are not ill-treated but partiality is been done with us because a student with 95% is not getting in many reputed colleges whereas students of reserved category get there with just 60-65%.This is clearly the snatching of the opportunity of the good students.Adding to it,for equality such reservations has to be removed otherwise it won't be called equality.

Its good to here that the Tradition of Untouchables have almost ended, but if you go out and see, you will find cases of untouchability still there. To elaborate, my friend's grandmother does not allow people of lower caste into the house. She says, if any lower class (achhoot) person enters the house, she will not step into the house ever after that. This is not a single example, but there are many like that.
You say about giving reservation to the Economically Backward Classes, I say that Reservation should be given to the Lower Classes but let it be there choice if they want to take the privilege of reservation or no. That means, let it be their decision to decide whether they are still been look down upon by some Castes or no. Elaborating that, one of my Friend has refused to go for the Reservation quota seat she was getting in some reputed institute.

According to me one cannot judge the intellect of a person just by the name written in front of them...... Reservations should be done on the basis of poverty not on cast.. Even for being in a healthy competition...

OK, but WHAT do you mean by reservation? Are you talking about children born into wealthy families and inheriting their wealth when they die or what?
