“St Stephen’s to have 50% Christian quota” says Sonia Sarkar. (How unfortunate is it to have a name like that and to have to report on an issue of reservations for Christians?)
I don’t know but I hope and pray (to use an expression) that St Stephen’s is not supported by any public funds.
Anyhow, here’s a nice illustration of innumeracy to add a bit of humor to an otherwise pathetic story:
The management wants 50 per cent reservation for Christians, another 30 per cent for Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe candidates. So that would leave 30 per cent for general category students.
PS: For the benefit of those who did not get the “Sonia Sarkar” joke, “sarkar” means “government” in many Indian languages.
