When the V P Singh government implemented the Mandal Commission Report in 1990, one of the issues harped by the opponents was that merit would be sacrificed and mediocrity would ushered in. Today, seeing the way candidates are selected to the professional colleges, I wonder where the proponents of merit are today. I just don’t know how to describe the whole farce that is being enacted in the name of education. What we see is a blatant mockery of academic institutions and everything that is considered meritorious and sacrosanct. Today the new definition for merit for obtaining an entrance to professional college is the merit of the weight of the money bags. Education has become a mere business to amass wealth.

Some of the children known to me personally, whom we despaired along with the parents,whether they would ever be able to finish school, are practicing “doctors” or studying in medical colleges.  The only merit these children can boast of is the bank balance of their parents and the influential position of their fathers. God alone knows how many lives are going to be sacrificed by these morons in white coat. Yes, they are literally real morons. I taught some of them. Using money power to gain an entrance is one thing, I lack imagination to describe the use of money power to secure a pass in various papers.  This is the future we are building. A society lacking in ethics and morals which has lost the grace to at least blush in shame. I know a friend of mine who took ten years to finish MBBS. I am teaching a girl who is studying in plus two today who has already planned to do her post graduate medical studies in New York.  She is cock sure of going to medical college.  After all, her father is a rich real estate businessman.

As a devout Christian who has read the Bible 18 times, I command the thugs in the garb of the sacred white Aronical priestly dress to stop using the word “church” or “christian” as a nomenclature for their filthy nefarious moneymaking institutions.  Ignatius Loyola, a devout catholic and a pioneer of education, must be turning in his grave in despair seeing the shameless corrupt wolves in white sheep's clothing masquerading today as “educationists” in my state of Kerala. These are the kind of clergymen who were in cahoots with the money changers in the temple in Jerusalem who
m Jesus Christ kicked out of the church, which is His presence, the name these white-frocked brigands are misusing for their corrupt and immoral deed.
