Caste Based Census

The decision to include caste in the forthcoming census is another step moving towards the proportionate system of governance in India. Over a period of time this would completely replace meritocracy as a system of elimination and introduce reservations in jobs and positions across all spheres of public life based on proportionate representation of a community in India.

Conceptually, the idea appears to be a powerful source of social empowerment but would it hold the country united or fissured? This remains a nagging question when we keep the diversity of the country in mind. Its a well known fact that Indians, however educated they may be, think about their caste, community or religion first when it comes to any decision making. And giving this thought process a legibility is indeed fraught with danger.
