    Is equality of opportunity in a society just a beautiful dream ?

    In our society the opportunities afforded to those born to privilege are certainly much greater or easier than those afforded to born to parents at the lower end of the economic spectrum.Even if anyone can grow up to be president- the path is a lot easier for some than others.

    Can we change this inequality in the future?

    Important thing to discuss.
    Not just economic situations but also place of birth, ethnicity and even caste plays an important role even today. People need to give their voice for equality. All the oppressed people should stand together

    Couldn't agree more, People should consider the talents and skills of the person while giving opportunity not the other useless things that you mention above.
    Hope in future the current scenario will change

    Excellent question... The economy plays a great part in someone's victory. That I will say for sure. Money makes the path to victory more easier and the ones who haven't got a lot of that, then they walk the path of thorns and twists to het their place in society. Of course, there're people who managed to succeed even through the worst. But think of our country's situation now! Too many private universities with way too high price for education... And to be honest, people who have the privileges to be whatever they want are totally lucky and others, they have to go through a fire walk to make sure they stand out.

    We can never change it unless we become Russia.

    This is the true situation of our country,The one who has the money get all the privilege and the one who has the knowledge and skill has to go through a hardship to get his/her chance to showcase their talents.

    We can never change it unless we become Russia.
    Very true.
