Reservations for nerds and geeks!

Nitin Pai sends me an email titled “Nerds & Geeks are Scheduled Tribes.” He points me to the criteria for being recognised as ST:

The first list was thus promulgated on Sep.6, 1950 and is known as the Constitution (ST) Order 1950. The criteria fixed for inclusion of a community in the list of STs are:

1. Indications of primitive traits,
2. Distinctive culture,
3. Geographical isolation,
4. Shyness of contact with the community at large, and
5. Backwardness

Nitin’s got a point. I think nerds and geeks should just get together and organise a bandh now. Dweebs of the world unite!
