Sample text

Poisonous intergroup relations and real dangers to the fabric of society have also been produced by affirmative action in some countries. That should become painfully clear when we look at the ‘‘details’’ in the chapters that follow. chapter 2 A≈rmative Action in India ndia is the world’s largest multi-ethnic society—and the most socially fragmented. A land of well over a hundred languages and hundreds of dialects, where even the most widely spoken language in the country is spoken by less than one-third of the population, India is also cross cut by strong caste, religious, regional and ethnic divisions—expressed in a wide range of ways, from radically different lifestyles to bloodshed in the streets.

Not only in higher education, but in elementary and secondary education as well, the need for complementary resources, in order to be able to actually make use of preferences and quotas, limits the benefits that members of the scheduled ≥≤ affirmative action in india castes and scheduled tribes receive. Even when the government provides primary schooling free of charge, the costs of books and supplies may not be affordable by very poor people. For secondary education, rural students especially may not always find a school nearby, so that those whose parents cannot afford the costs of commuting or relocating—and paying for housing and boarding—have little realistic prospect of attending, regardless of preferential admissions policies.

Local indigenous status as ‘‘sons of the soil’’ has been taken to confer an entitlement to special consideration,∑∞ especially in states where outsiders have clearly out-performed the locals in free competition in the marketplace or in examinations for college admissions or government jobs. In the states of Assam, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh, for example, such outsider dominance has sparked both political movements and mob violence. Where local preference laws have been instituted, ‘‘local’’ has not meant simply people residing in the given state, because some groups—Marwaris and Bengalis in Assam, for example— have resided in that state for generations.
