yahi to durbhagya hai 70 sal baad bhi special treatment ki jaroorat pad rahi india me
All these issues have become instruments of a political appeasement. The government should deliberate on these issues because the unprivileged class is still deprived of it. We need to bring new systems so that all the citizens of the country do not feel discriminated. But the government is not ready to garner the courage to resolve this issues.

Many a times, we have to behave with different people in a different manner to maintain equality Different people are born with different abilities To make sure that each one of them reaches her/his maximum potential, we must provide them the facilities they need

  7. So, is differential treatment against equality? Such a treatment is not seen as violation of equality In fact, it is seen as a must for equality As a part of differential treatment for equality, some countries have resorted to AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

  8. What is affirmative action?

So, the constitution makes the process slightly easier for them This is justified because these groups have been oppressed historically, and it will take time for them to come to the forefront with others

  11. Let's think Imagine there is a child in a school who is a first-generation learner This means that no one in her family has gone to school before her Will she be able to cope up with school studies as well as the others would be able to?
