I happen to hate poilitcs. And every day something happens that makes me hate it all the more. And with this reservation for women thingie, I despise politics. I mean seriously guys, I fail to understand how this reservation will help women.
Before I put in my views, I want you guys to read what is @ease' take on this.Well actually, @ease has a keen interest in politics and I get all the political gyaan from him.
I was aghast when I read what Sonia Gandhi's had said to Lalu before the bill was passed. She had said that he (Lalu) will have seven reserved seats for his family (each one for his 7 daughters). I mean, are you serious? He will get 7 ways to take undue advantage of the full 7 seats in parliament. No offense to Lalu, I really respect him as a politician, but I have no clue about his daughters. There may be people who are more deserving than his daughters.
It is not a game. This reservation has really put me off. The newspapers were flooded with the happy faces of women flocked together, garlanding and hugging each other and rejoicing the passing of the bill. Good luck to them. But what next..?? Aaahh, I know what will come now. Our country will be in the hands of those women who have absolutely no knowledge (and no understanding) of the Indian polity and will be nothing but puppets of their super intelligent but yet the devil-like husbands, brothers and fathers. Yes this is what was needed for our beloved country's slow and gradual downturn.
And they will now talk about empowering women..!!
UPDATE : Also read what Sakshi has to say about it..
