Sample text

In the state of Maharashtra, a directive specified not merely ‘‘local’’ persons but also speakers of the Marathi language— that is, people ethnically Maharashtrians. ∑≥ In all these cases, there was abundant evidence that the less successful indigenous groups simply did not have the skills, experience, or attitudes that had enabled others to come in and surpass them. In Maharashtra, for example, the Maharashtrians themselves preferred to buy from South Indian shopkeepers, rather than from their fellow Maharashtrians.

Although most Indians were, and would remain for decades more, illiterate, most of the Andhra migrants were literate and thousands of them had gotten higher education. Unskilled migrants in the city were largely from other parts of the Telanganan region, while Andhra migrants held clerical and other white collar or middle-class jobs. Andhra farmers followed a long-standing practice of buying up land from Telanganans and making it more productive. ∑∫ In short, the Telanganans were bested in many ways on their own turf, despite the preferences and quotas known as ‘‘safeguards,’’ and were therefore understandably apprehensive about their future if these safeguards ended on schedule in 1969.

For secondary education, rural students especially may not always find a school nearby, so that those whose parents cannot afford the costs of commuting or relocating—and paying for housing and boarding—have little realistic prospect of attending, regardless of preferential admissions policies. Perhaps the largest cost of sending children to secondary and higher education is their lost labor on farms and their lost income elsewhere, especially among poverty-stricken people struggling to make ends meet.
