Interesting comment on reservations

The below email was forwarded to me by a friend.

ET has opened a debate on "Is Premji right to go against job quotas in Wipro?"
As expected most of the posts agree with him... here is someone who put his put in a very diff way
I think we should have job reservations in all the fields. I completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting this. Let's start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly. The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.
We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal.
Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.
There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let's recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country.. )
Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country..)
Let's be creative and think of ways and means to guide INDIA forward... Let's show the world that INDIA is a GREAT country. Let's be proud of being an INDIAN..
May the good breed of politicans like ARJUN SINGH long live...

Now, a friend of mine and me were in a pub having some beer over the weekend. We came up with some more ideas. Some of might might be ridiculous, and I have forgotten most of what we came up with (Come on, I was having beer, and it did hit me a little)

The ball should not spin more than 5 degree when bowled to a backward class batsman.
A no-ball or a wide ball bowled to a backward class batsman will invite a penalty of two runs and two extra balls on the fielding side.
There should be 50% reservations for the umpires.
For runout decisions, the crease should be lengthened for backward classes.
If a batsman is caught by a backward class fielder after no or one bounce, he will be declared out.
The boundary should be extended for a bowler from backward classes. A six hit by a batsman off a backward class bowler will be considered a four, and a four will be considered a double.

There should be 50% reservations for entries to the pub.
50% of the beer in the pub should be sold to backward classes.
There should be discounts on beer to backward classes.
50% of the rock that is played should be sung by a backward class rock band or singer.
There should be reservations for the job of the DJ.
