sapnen rang de, apne rang de
khushiyaan rang de, gam bhi rang de
naslen rang de, faslein rang de
rang de dhadkan, rang de sargam
aur mohe tuu rang de basanti yaara
mohe tuu rang de basanti
dheemi aanch pe tuu zara ishq chadha
thode jharne laa, thodi nadi mila
thode saagar aa, thodi gaagar laa
thoda chhidak chhidak, thoda hila hila
phir ek rang tu khila khila
basti rang de, hasti rang de
hans hans rang de, nas nas rang de
bachpan rang de, joban rang de
ab der na kar sachmuch rang de
rang rez mere sab kuchh rang de
mohe mohe tuu rang de basanti yaara
mohe tuu rang de basanti

Or if my emotion is less than yours, or more, given the same circumstances, try not to ask me to feel more strongly or weakly.Or yet if I act, or fail to act, in the manner of your design for action, let me be.
I do not, for the moment at least, ask you to understand me. That will come only when you are willing to give up changing me into a copy of you. I may be your spouse, your parent, your offspring, your friend, or your colleague. If you will allow me any of my own wants, or emotions, or beliefs, or actions, then you open yourself, so that some day these ways of mine might not seem so wrong, and might finally appear to you as right -- for me. To put up with me is the first step to understanding me. Not that you embrace my ways as right for you, but that you are no longer irritated or disappointed with me for my seeming waywardness. And in understanding me you might come to prize my differences from you, and, far from seeking to change me, preserve and even nurture those differences.

Let’s keep aside the political mileage thingy out for some time and take a re-look at the issue. I want all my country men to be at equal footing. Give them level playing field. Fair enough. But then there is also survival of the fittest.
Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up and knows that it will have to outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
And, every morning in Africa a lion wakes up and knows that it will have to outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
So, in Africa, it doesn't matter if you are the lion or the gazelle. When that sun comes up, you had better be running.
Now what Mr. Arjun Singh and company is trying to do is to assure all those weak lion with a gazelle. If a lion is capable enough it will get its food. By providing it a gazelle you are not only messing up with the law of nature but also undermining the capabilities of the lion. Respected sir, your decision on quota will only take our country back in time. I have known quite a few guys who had sweated out like any thing to claim their worthiness for a seat in my college. And I am damn sure if this 22.5 % reservation was not there for educational institutes, many of us who finally landed to RECs would have been in the IITs. Only if the competition was not for 77.5% of seats. If you want to help them do that at elementary and primary level and please don’t make caste as basis for the same but economic abilities. Create more Navodaya Vidyalaya and other similar initiatives. Leave professional colleges for those who can prove there mantle for a prized place in those institutes. There are many guys out there from supposedly backward and oppressed classes who can make it on there own. Let merit be only criterion for any such coveted places. Competitive examination should be the same, competitive and not such a farce. Government has to make sure money should not be an issue with all such people at any level of their education. But not spoon feeding. We have enough of mediocrity, only with meritocracy we as country can grow. Country move ahead with progressive policies.Don’t divide the country between US vs THEM.

Did you know that although you can print news, show the same on various TV channels but you cannot air any news over radio. That is exclusive right of AIR, All India Radio. I, for one didn’t know this and so seems this guy. Raghav Mahto used to run this community radio service in bhojpuri for over 3 years before his equipments were seized by the Government.
