This is the editorial section of DNA (Daily News and Analysis) on April 11th, 2008. The day after supreme court ruled in favour of OBC reservation in higher educations. The editorial piece, “Beyond Legalese” stopped short of welcoming the decision, sought an “imaginative initiative” for extending the benefit of education to all, all the while saying “reservation” is not the way. Well, that was the reaction of the day.
But the stunning part was the “quote of the day” just above the editorial, which is just what you see in the picture above. Probably, DNA tried to say what it meant to, without being charged of contempt of court. The meaning of the quote was shocking enough, and I think the source made it worse. Dont you think its casteist ?
