A: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
Q: And Mr. Dennington was dead at the time?
A: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy.
This one is too good...

Q: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for blood pressure?
A: No.
Q: Did you check for breathing?
A: No.
Q: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
A: No.
Q: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
A: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
Q: But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?
A: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing
law somewhere.

Why Quota System is needed in Higher Education Mr. Arjun Singh - Enough is enough

Do anyone of you think that Mr. Arjun Singh is thinking anything good for our education system. Is it really going to help our education system???

IIM and IIT is a place where intelligence matters and not reservation. Mr Arjun Singh, are you going to repent after couple of years if you see inferior quality of graduates from these institutes. And why would you? Your task is done. Your aim seems to be the upcoming elections in five states.

Would you bring back those bright brains of India who are preparing to leave the country to get higher education abroad only because they could not get a sit in IIT or IIM.

Enough is enough, there should not be any reservation based on caste anymore. If you want to have reservation, yes have it but for financially backward class. This is where you need to bring them up. There should be no reservations based solely on the principles of caste and government should instead focus on providing quality primary education to all.

Its good to see that bloggers community have already started raising voice. One
of our blogger friends have created an Anti-Reservation Blogroll. Watch out
for it here. Entrance to the Shrine.: Anti-Reservations Blogroll.
