Two more interesting takes on reservation

In an ad, Lenovo urged companies to be "equal opportunity employers", by giving everyone a Thinkpad.

On the day (12 May) the election results were announced, a Trinamool Congress functionary was questioned about the firm grip the Communist Party of India (Marxist) -- together with its allies in the Left Front -- continues to have over the entire state of West Bengal. He quipped (and I am paraphrasing here), "Those guys control so much (more than 80%) of the Legislature that there is virtually no opposition presence. I think what we need is at least 25 percent reservation for the opposition!".

Now, here's a guy with a sense of humour; I wonder why he is still with Trinamool.
