Earlier I used to be against the reservation system cz it gives undue advantage to non-deserving well-off candidates.
But recently , I realised that my thinking was confined to the individual level. I was not able to analyse the social benefit that it accrues.
An empowered individual somehow empowers the society as well , at least by means of acting as an example and source of inspiration.
In wake of the larger good that it does to the historically deprived, oppressed sections,the unjust individual advantage can be ignored.
