And some more stories

There is an article that talks of how brahmins are today's dalits. There is an article about the conditions where the boys on the UoH campus have come from. There is a viewpoint about how discrimination that is social, structural and econmic is being legalised.

It appears that the key to social and economic growth is knowledge, or access to education. Knowledge is the lever, the multiplier.

Who has access? What kind of access? How can they leverage this access? These are all questions

Educational institutions should strive to provide that multiplier to all.

Equal opportunity is a word. Between the word and the spirit there is a vast gulf that exists. Perhaps we should accept that gulf. It is an unequal world anyway.

But the underlying principle there is this - it will be ruled by the fittest.
