India gives equal oppertunities to all its citizen?
Hello! friends! I want to know what exactly you think on this topic. Please share your ideas.

APOORVA

I disagree with this statement. I dont feel this is true because if India had given equal opportunites to its citizen then there would be no beggars, asking for the money on the street. They too want to work but because of lack of knowledge they can't and this lack of knowledge is due to lack of money due to which they dont get admission in tthe school and this lack of money is due to unemployment. Its all a revolving process. In this all that matters is the status.

POOJA

Even I disagree. I'm with Apoorva. It also never asks us kids about our opinion. They give scholarships to Scholars but overlook students who are not good in studies but do need support to become good. And also the poverty problem results in unemployment. Indian government should set up schools which give free primary & secondary education.

SIJA

I really don't understand this statement. On what basis do you define 'opportunities'? Is it Employment? Education? Or what else? Basically, even if the Govt. intends to be fair in this game of 'Opportunities', 'tis practically impossible for them to bestow each and every citizen with equal opportunities, 'cause India supports a huge, massive population. But still, opportunities need not be provided by the Govt. The citizens must grab them. Probably Ashok's statement will become true tomorrow!!

K.MAHESH

Hi friend, I would like to refresh Apoorva's view that is in India lot of beggars are present even they say India is developing, this is mainly due to the economic status of the country and education system. Everyone has to be treated equally while giving admission to the students and even during the election every indian has to be given equal priority.

SAMEER BAKSHI

After attaining the age of 18, I came to know about the true meaning of opportunities. What came to me as citizen was democracy in a diphlated form. I could not comprehend it. It took some time to adjust in this system. First I saw the oppourtunities as stepping stone to practical politics and neglection of masses. But with advent of 90's I saw another trend catching attention of public. Performance based politics remains the order of the day. Maybe I am right.

AZIZ THANAWALA

I totally disagree with this because in country like India with huge population it is not possible. Even today people with great intellengence are unemployed due to less jobs available and also due to less salary paid to that person. Person who deserves the job is not admitted rather. He is asked various questions & through it that person is being failed.

PARVEEN

Equal opportunities means level playing field. Quota system used in India is by no means providing this. Nowdays it has become an important qualification to have belonging with a particular caste even if you have all the resources (which are generally manipulated before declaration leading to underestimation to avail quota facilities!!) in the world. It will be much better on part of government to provide economic assistance to students belonging to SC/ST community and then leave them to their talent & fate in competitions. This arrangement will not leave meritorious students who are eligible to clear competition in real sense high & dry. Present form of quota system is not justifiable by any means as it focusses on caste rather than merit. IF IT IS TRUE THAT "GENERAL" CATEGORY STUDENTS DO NOT HAVE MONOPOLY OVER TALENT THEN SC/ST STUDENTS SHOULD BE PROVIDED MONETARY ASSISTANCE RATHER THAN LOLLYPOPS IN FORM OF RESERVED JOBS.

GAYATRI KUNTE .

I speak against this statement. India doesn't give equal opportunities to all it's citizens. Although the Government has set certain fundamental rights and duties for all citizens, India still discriminates people on bases of cast, religion, race, colour and even whether he/she is rich and poor. I feel this is very wrong. Even after making a pledge, India doesn't give equal opportunities to all citizens. For example- Small children are made to work at dangerous places instead of being given education by the Government. So I am am sure we all can help in this by talking to people and also by helping the needy and India will rise up again!!

RAMESH

I also didn't understand what basis the question asked. The rules made by indian government are all equal but the politicians are using these rules in wrong way. If the rules set by indian government is implemented correctly then India will become one of the super power.

DEEPIKA

I totally disagree with what apporva and pooja has to say about the opportunities provided to indians...the government is trying it's best to provide as much facilities to the poor so that even they may come up in their lives...the children are provided with free education uptil 13 years of age...the poor are getting concessions in the daily grocery through ration card system, the poor are hardly levied any tax...even after all this if the poor don't improve their conditions..it's a result of their fate and incapabilities!!! that's it! AFTER ALL THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T PROVIDE EACH AND EVERY POOR BEGGAR WITH LAKHS OF RUPEES TO IMPROVE THEIR LIFESTYLES!!!

BIGBOB

This statement "India gives equal opportunities to all its citizen" is not true! If this statement was true would there be beggars on the street? Would there be poverty? Would there be injustice in health and sexual prefences? Just ask yourself these questions and you will figure out the accuracy of this statement.

More than enough rights are being given.

VIPIN.S.DAS

No this statement is not true. Our country is not giving equal importance to all it's citizens. "RESERVATION SYSTEM" is an example which will justify my words. If all are equal before our constitution, then what is the need of reservations in each and every field? It was needed in the olden days, when the monopoly of people of upper castes existed. Now it is not needed. This is only one example and this according to me. So please don't take this as a pure beat to you.

SHOJANA

I wholeheartedly agree that our motherland INDIA gives equal opportunities to all its citizens. India is a welfare state but due to mistakes done by few people it is not completely reaching the citizens. And we can't be blaming the Government for everything. HOW MANY OF US DO OUR WORK PROPERLY? Many people throw garbage wherever they like, spit on the road, don't maintain traffic rules, and are irresponsible. Can we imagine of getting a college admission through recommendation in Boston?But in India there is so much of partiality and that not because of India, because of few people in India. So we must do our work properly and also should not spoil the Government facilities(like making Govt. Hospitals and roads dirty)as the Government is doing their part of the work.

VSQUARED

No. It doesn't, what with the reservations for SCST and all, I don't think India can ever give equal opportunities to all its citizens.

AAQUIB NAZIR

I have observed that lot of people have a bad impression about ST/SC. The places where ST's are issued is actually an act of the government to maintain equality among the poeple of underdeveloped places, with those of metropolitian ones, because the people of rural areas never get as much opportunities, as compared to the people of metros, despite the fact that they have got ST's. So it's a kind of balancing act, so I think that the Indian government is doing its very best to treat the citizens of India as equals, but even if there is any inequality....then it is the people's fault, not the government's!

YUVAPREETHI

No, Not at all

SWATHI

I disagree with this statement.

SRAVYA P

I think the utilization of oppurtunities vary from person to person !

VINOD

There should be reservation given to sc/st /obc because they are economically weaker section. Their child does not go to coaching like general candidates because of that reason they can not prepare well and lacks behind if opprtunity is given.

REV

I don't agree with this statement. Reservation system makes this statement wrong. Reservation can be done but it should not be based on caste. Rural students face many difficulties in their day to day life. so reservation can be made for these students. Our education system should change. Atleast there should be no reservation for medical.

HAMSA

I don't agree with the statement .If so why should it keep reservation pattern in all matters. These politicians always think about their vote bank but not about common man.All of them think about the SC/ST/BC. There are even poor upper caste families in india .N O body thinks about that. I am of the opinion that this caste,creed and religion distinct must be removed from the constitution and allow only reservation on the basis of income of a family. Then every individual will get oppurtunities to prove themselves.

ANUPAMA

It was very informative. Thank you so much

CHAITANYA SRIVASTAVA

I just wanna say one thing - if the Indian government is giving fair and equal chance to all its citizens then what was is this chaos of the reservations in high graded colleges? If India is really a democracy, then why did the politicians react so much on the statement of Aamir Khan about the "Narmada Bachao Andolan"? Why is there wide spread unemployment in India if we all get a fair and equal chance? A child whose parents are ready to give donation is preferred for admission in schools over a talented child. Do you still, still think that we get a fair and equal chance? I DON'T.

DEEKSHITA

I too disagree

PRAVESH

I totally agree with you. The government should provide financial assistance to SC/ST rather than providing them reservations in various fields.

SHEFALI GUSAIN

I am satisfied with this statement because this reservation differs the people and makes a difference in their policies.
