Smt. Harini,How does one verify Swiss Bank account? In my opinion Brahmins should be atleast be given minority status in spite of whether they are rich or poor.
One doubt please : whether minority status can be claimed on caste basis? I do not know.
I just came across this thread, although it has been here for a few months now. I was disappointed/little bit angry that there was no option to vote "Hindu as my religion and 'no caste' as my caste". (I remember Mr. Nara pointing out in some thread that any poll can be tailored to get the desired result of the taker/starter of the poll.)
I should say Ms. Happy Hindu that I felt great humility when I read what your parents chose to vote i.e. Indian as caste. My humble salutations to your parents and to you.
Am so sorry to disappoint you Valli. But they did not register that way.I should say Ms. Happy Hindu that I felt great humility when I read what your parents chose to vote i.e. Indian as caste. My humble salutations to your parents and to you.
I have addressed this in my response posted as #14. This is survey and not poll. It is true that poll in India is manipulated, now even with EVM. Survey is also not a perfect thing for it is based on Statistics which is not as perfect a science as other streams of Science. But it works to some extent and delivers some analytical information.
There is nothing intended for tailoring manipulation here. But I feel that responses to this thread is very less. If the survey appears to be leading... what and where it is leading? The truth is that the intentions behind the Caste based Census has not got sunk deep in to the thinkings of TBs yet. Just like Reservation, we are going to allow worse to happen and are going to make much hue and cry about it later.
When Ambasankar Commission was appointed by MGR to find out the proportion of all BCs in the TN population, at the initial count, the total figures of the state went up to 11 crores, because of the exaggerated claims made by each section of the BCs. Hence, the Commission was scrapped midway by MGR, realizing no purpose will be served by its continuing.
i didn't vote coz i prefer hinduism as religion and indian as caste thats not there.
Why you see 'Indian' as Caste? There should be an interesting explanation behind it. Please eloborate.
I prefer to tell Hindu Brahmin as it is the Truth! Why should it be any other way, I cannaot imagine even!
