How To Beat Mandal
All is not lost. We can still save the IITs and IIMs from Arjun Singh's Quota Raj. The way out is easy. Just rename the IITs as Islamic Institutes of Technology and the IIMs as Islamic Institutes of Management. And then ask the boards of these premier institutes to declare themselves as minority institutions. This way the 49.5% regime will become null and void because you cannot force reservations on minority institutions. A luscious legal loophole indeed. Think about it.
