Intellectual Class

14 07 2007

It is true that intellect by itself is no virtue. It is only a means and the use of means depends upon the ends which an intellectual person pursues. An intellectual man can be a good man but he can easily be a rogue. Similarly an intellectual class may be a band of high-souled persons, ready to help, ready to emancipate erring humanity or it may easily be a gang of crooks or a body of advocates of a narrow clique from which it draws its support. You may think it a pity that the intellectual class in India is simply another name for the Brahmin caste.

“You may think it a pity that the intellectual class in India is simply another name for the Brahmin caste”. Who told you ? Have you not seen autowallas,chaprasies of quota promoted officers,vegabonds with a thread, House hold manial labours Serving in the houses of elite SC/ST officers. How many brahmins do get through in competative exams? It for the oppurtunist class of politician who try to cook out something for vested gain and thus to devide and rule. Let there be a reasearch among the IIT,AIMS and IIM students getting seat under quota system about their family background. (0% of the are comming from the bracket of Rs. 500000.00 to Rs. 10,00,000.00 annual earning family . Once pass out they hardly look after to up lift their tribe Again let there be research on Sc?ST promoted officer how many percentage of them are not corrupt in given situation.
