Reservation in Promotion

India is a republic
Known by the public
People have the supreme power
Our Constitution does empower
Our elected representatives one and all
Rule on the behalf of the people
Run the governmental administration
Make laws and legislation
To ensure smooth functioning of economy
To ensure society from any anomaly
To ensure social justice and equality
To nurture love, respect and fraternity
To uplift the backward
To bring them forward
We devised reservation system
Based on caste system
I found boundary line diluting
After coming from rural to urban area
Perceived and became part of India shining
Without knowing caste and creed, with all dining
I found people asking not caste
But category, yes the categories
Created by the reservation system
The spirit of equality and social justice got sidelined
Instead of making progressive India
New social order got defined
The rich among the so called reserved categories
Enjoy the benefit of the reservation
The poor are still poor in poverty
The real benefit is not ensured
Aren’t we sustaining an unfair practice?
In the name of equality and social justice
How will an office perform well
When his juniors will take charge of him
To do this and do that he will tell
In spite of poor performance
Lower knowledge and experience
The reserved categories will get placed higher
How this will ensure performance better
The system of fair practice
Selection based on qualification will fail
The reservation in promotion is a bad item
Wrapped in beautiful packet
An infectious racket
This will usher in the revival of spoil system
