Affirmative action was never meant to be permanent, and now is truly the time to move on to some other approach. Susan Estrich
Schools across India do not have teachers, libraries, playing grounds and even toilets. I do not want to see empty classrooms, empty libraries. I do not want to see cattle grazing on fields meant to be cricket or football grounds. Sachin Tendulkar

Brian Eno
