how many of u r having both IIM B and IIM C final calls ??? and whihc one are you planning to join:):)???
I know many of you might b waiting 4 IIM A .... but dont consider IIM A call as of now.... just keep that thought aside for a while and answer this Q:biggrin:
PS: neither im having both calls nor want to compare the institutes, its, just that im curious to know ....
@nwelife-I don't say that whatever you said is wrong, but i like to assert that capital punishment should be abolished .Reason :1 You mention about kasab prosecution -yes he did crime that is merciless and should be punished ,but what was the root of his crime that needs to be taken into account.....Was he a criminal by birth?the ans is no.Kasab was young and was driven into this by exploitation of religious faiths,false ideology.....young age coupled with economic conditions drove kasab to this path.....
now you see the paradox that it is society which made him criminal and it is society which kills him through legal system....
2-It may also be taken into account that once a person is hanged to death through capital punishment ,he can't be made alive by any means.Sometimes an innocent person might be put to death.Our judicial system is not transparent.It depends upon the witnesses only and that may be false or fake.
3-i do not find validity in the deterrent effect of Capital punishment .Had it been so,there would not have been any murder or rape in our country.
"Positive Discrimination is like paying for the past "
The statement speaks for itself !!
The term Positive is important here !! Discrimination in a positive sense - In a democratic society like ours , there is always a sense of imbalanced growth .To stabilize this , opportunities to counter the imbalance have to be forced.The imbalance need not be caste always.Poverty,Geographical inaccessibility or remoteness,war prone zones,extreme climate zones,sons of the soil with reduced opportunities also form valid cases for Positive discrimination . Now,coming to the second part ,"paying for the past" is actually misleading . Positive discrimination is not paying for the past but it is "paying for the impact of the past " . It can be evidently seen that that impact created by the past is evidently visible in the present.
We have a case in which we associate discrimination with the following
The latter is partially justified,as many would agree that this has generally resulted in the uplifting of the so called "second sex". The former has always been a topic of debate and rightly,we see a shift in the priority from pure caste based to "caste+income" based !! The shift has to be gradual so as to maintain the balance of the nation. In all these cases ,Positive Discrimination is not like paying for the past -It is like investing in the future !!
