Lower cut off for boys?! Are you kidding us?

TIMES OF INDIA: "Std XI cut-offs for Bangalore girls higher than boys"

INDIAN EXPRESS: "Boys come first as girls do better"

Best of all: "We surely support the girls. It is in fact a disadvantage for the girls because they have scored better than the boys. Maybe the girls have to perform a little poor if they want to compete with the boys," says Dr Sree Srivatsa, Principal, MES pre-university college
(Ref: http://www.ndtv.com/news/india/girls-pay-the-price-for-doing-better-29861.php)

Well... Where is the country heading to?  Already we have a lot of criticism for women's 33% reservation of seats in the parliament. And now we have one more gender discrimination issue coming up. Cut-off for boys is 594, while it is 599 for girls in PCMB and in the commerce stream, it is 553 for boys and 580 for girls! In short, this country doesn't want the intelligent to study in a better university and the capable to manage the government! No wonder why this country is still "developing" and yes, it will never become "developed" unless it forgets gender discrimination. In my opinion, women do not need any helping hand in the name of "reservation" to show that they can be someone like Indira Gandhi and boys don't need lower cut-off to become Abdul Kalam.
