Haste makes wastes -
A political story explaining the meaning of this proverb.

In India there are many education boards like SSC, CBSE and ICSE.
Up to 10th standard these board have their own education system.
As a human nature every board says that our education system is best and other is ok.

Problem in India is that Best education collages are very few; one can count them on fingers in Mumbai.
After passing the 10th exam every parent wants that his son or daughter should get admission in this best collage.
But Best collages have limited seats for the 11th standard and students who want admission they are ten times more than the available seats in those collages.

Now Government of Maharashtra has to solve this problem.
But our Maharashtra government ministers are so busy every year they wake up after the results of 10th exam and see that parents are fighting for the admission, they make rule in haste without studying the law.

Now after declaring the rule in haste the ministers think that their job is over, but other students go to the Court and court cancels the Rule which is wrong , which is made in haste, In haste government end up making the unconstitutional rule .
Which waste the time, money of every student of Maharashtra.

Last three years this is happening in Maharashtra
Government makes the rule in haste and Judiciary every year tells them do not make wrong rules.

Every year parents and students waste their time because of haste of ministers and their officers.
