Finally, a breather...

The Govt. has finally given a nod to the IITs and IIMs to go ahead with the admissions of the students belonging to the General category and the SC/ST category. Until the Supreme Court decision on the Quota debacle, it has put on hold the proposed expansion of seats in all Central funded Educational Institutions.

This is the most reasonable thing that the HRD ministry has done, though long overdue. However, the quirkiest part of the whole story is saying that they have given the go-ahead because it is affecting the Govt.'s stand in the case! And not because the delay affects the students and their future.

Well, at the end of the day, we need to accept that the HRD ministry is a political machinery and that politics and welfare are divorced. Now I tend to believe they were never meant to be together...do you agree ?

The HRD ministry can be a great instrument for change; however, you need a minister who believes that he can do good for people rather than for himself
