A Way of Protesting

It was a rare confrontation. The educated, elite students of India took the law in their hands. The objective was to protest against the reservation policy that was to be implemented-a brainchild of a union minister, disguised as a plan for the up-liftement of backward classes. Though it was a rare scene, it was not that surprising. Every body knew someone would pick the matter and revolt.
