The Supreme Court of India described the situation created by the medicos as a dangerous situation and intervened. The scenario started changing after the recalcitrant doctors were told in no uncertain term that continuation of the deadlock would be viewed as their contempt against the Court
Without any prejudice to how the Supreme Court would decide the greater question of reservation proposed to be implemented from 2007, when we look at what has happened so far, we shudder at the severe damage done to our sovereignty by the agitating medicos and the in-service doctors who collaborated with them.
It deserves specific mention that the agitation was conceived and carried out against reservation of seats for backward class students in better centers of education.
It was an agitation against the Countrys proposal to reserve a portion of sanctioned seats in national educational institutes for the students of the backward class. Hence it was an agitation against the backward class obviously by the forward class.
And what is in reality the forward class in India? It is that class that has inherited those who had invaded India in the past; who had destroyed Indias original civilization; who had extinguished Indias tribal democracies and usurped power; who, having grabbed power, had transformed Indias classless community to the casteliest society; who, despite less participation in Indias freedom movement, have grabbed maximum benefits in free India.
A look into Whos who of Indian Martyrs would show that more than 95 percent of the people who offered their supreme sacrifice for our freedom belong to what is now called the OBC/SC/ST. In Orissa, barring only nine persons from the upper castes, all the rest of Martyrs belong to OBC/SC/ST. The dream with which those patriots had fought for our freedom and had suffered all the tortures in the hands of the British and had embraced martyrdom cannot be allowed to be defeated. In the name of merit our democracy cannot be subjugated to meritocracy. Merit cannot be allowed to be monopolized by the forward class. Products of coaching centers cannot be considered as epitomes of merit.
And, merit? Do the fellows boasting of their forward class status have any idea of how merit has been butchered in India by their own class? They now boast of their educational background. Do they understand that tradition of education began with the burning of lamps in the night? Do they understand that the lamps were burning because there was oil to fuel them? Wherefrom the oil was coming? It was coming from oil seeds. But the people who were such a genius that they invented oil and developed specialization in production of oil, got eventually reduced to lower strata designated as oil-extractors and ordained by the upper-caste factors of Arya imperialism to go on extracting oil from generation to generation under the caste name of TELI, a caste, according to Law-giver Khana, is so loathsome that no good work should start if a TELI is found within a radius of two miles. The people who deserve to be honored as worlds first chemical scientists have been thrown by Indias upper-caste mechanism into the SC/OBC segment. Like this, the inventors of tie and dye technique, the first textile engineers are kept in SC list as TANTI (weaver) and RANGANI (Dyers). Indias upper-caste people never invented metals and minerals and never developed the original methodology for their utilization, but they have thrown them, who did it, into the lower strata giving them the caste name of SITALIA, MANKEDIA, BANIA, KAMAR etc. The original leather technologists have been kept in SC segment as MOCHI. The original sound scientists of India who had invented musical instruments and developed notes and harmonics were compelled to clean excreta of the upper caste masters and were marked as HADI or CHANDAL belonging to the lowest of all the castes. Visit any habitat of these people even now; you will never find one who is not a musician by birth. Look at the SAVARS or SAURAS; you will come across excellent instrumentalists. Visit any tribal habitat; you will see how music and dance are personified. The people who developed the technique of house building are kept in the lower strata as BADHEI (carpenter by caste). The people who conceived and created utensils to cook food or carry water were earmarked as KUMBHARA or KAMSARI. The people who discovered sweeteners and developed the art of culinary skills and presented the society with healthy and palatable foods were subdued as GUDIAs. The people who invented the science of cementing and excelled in architecture, built up majestic temples and magnificent sculptures are kept in the lower strata as PATHURIA. Study the history of any caste belonging to SC/ST/OBC in India; you shall see a stream of science, specialization or super-specialization and heriditization of the same in its background. Are these people deficient in merit? Are only those whose parents are able to afford private coaching for their sons or daughters for years are meritorious? It is time to take note of this.
As we saw, like Arya imperialists, the present batch of medicos and the neo Brahmins in medical segment have been trying to force the Government to keep the DALITs bereft of better education. Ban private tuition and coaching. There shall be no necessity of seat reservation; because without aid of tuition or coaching the so called meritorious students of the forward class cannot match in merit with those of the backward class.
It is sad that the fellows, who have nothing to loose when reservation grants a scope to OBC students in future, could paralyze Indias health service for around twenty days.
Ours is a sovereign country that cannot countenance continuation of exploitation of majority of our population by a privileged few and we must not allow such super saboteurs to blackmail us by withholding use of the expertise they acquire through our State system in the sphere of medical service.
It is high time for the Government to enact and enforce a Law making mandatory provisions for institution of murder case against every doctor that refuses to impart treatment to any patient under the guise of collective bargaining or a strike of the type we had to witness.
Will Manmohan Singhs Government that has shown so matchless promptness in bringing up an assize to save MPs and MLAs embroiled by the issue over office of profit, bring out this Law to save innumerable Indians from pernicious design of the medical community?
