India’s Freedom movement has its roots in ‘ Rules of Recruitment to #IndianCivilService ( #IAS )’. Surendranath Benarji was the First man in modern India to tour all India against the Rules which kept Indians away from the competition of ICS. At that time the Conspiracy to exclude Indians from entering into Civil Services lead to Indian Freedom movement earlier.
IN fact, Conspiracy to make IAS exclusive for Indian Elite started in 1986 itself. In 1986 age limit to write Civil Services exams was reduced from the then existing 28 Years to 26 Years, during Rajiv Gandhi Regime. This decision must have been effected in the belief that most of the Commons cannot prove their mettle in the Early Ages and hence easily filtered out. Of course, This age limit was raised to 28 in 1989 in VP Singh regime.
Now, present UPSC decisions would have far reaching consequences as far as Recruitment to IAS is concerned.
It systematically excludes not only Aspirants from Rural Hinterland who studied their schooling in their mother tongue but also who took their degrees in Engineering/Technology and also who did medicine.
It is apparent from the controversial Curriculum with regard to Language preference, that UPSC wants to fill IAS ranks with Elite Children hailing from Cities of Hindi belt only. Not only this, UPSC wants to exclude Engineers and doctors from entering the IAS if change in weightage to optional subjects in the revised rules is any indication.
I think this is a blessing in disguise. Let us pray to God so that Lallu and Co are not silenced by New Delhi by carrot and stick policy to push through the new Rules in another way.

There exist a misconception about our National Languages or Official Language. It is not true that Hindi is our only National Language.
Hindi is Official Language of the Indian Republic.
It is interesting to note that a language which competed to become Official language in the place of Hindi was not Telugu or Bengali but Hindustani. Hindustani was the language used by Ruling elite in those days which is a mixture of Urdu, Persian and Kadiboli Hindi. Hindi won by one Vote mazority against Hindustani in the Constituent Assembly.
And there are 21 National Languages for Indian Union/Republic not One as is believed by many. Not only Hindi but Dogri, Assamise, Telugu, Urdu, Sanskrit and what not, all most all the languages which every State people speak are included in the list of National languages.
And English along with Hindi is used as Official of language the Central Government. Thanks to Tamil People's anti Hindi agitation of late 1960s.
