About the Book :

Greatmen like Karl Marx, Lenin, Gandhi, Mao and Ho Chi Minh have all necessarily been epoch-making luminaries, but so far as the case of Dr. Ambedkar relentless struggles against the callous injustices done to the depressed, low caste people is concerned, he naturally emerged as an apostle figure. He was one of those great men, who from the cradle to the grave, had spent their life in fermenting state of insult, anguish and oppression. Dr. Ambedkar was a man of vision, conscious of the historic but difficult task of carving an egalitarian society from out of a bewildering masses of religions, communities, castes, races, languages, beliefs and practices. The learned contributors of the present volume have covered in their scholarly papers various facets of Dr. Ambedkar, including the relevance of Dr. Ambedkar in present day context when the present Indian society is standing on the crossroad. A useful volume, recommended to the students of Dr. Ambedkar and all those public personalities who are interested in the life and contributions of Dr. Ambedkar.
