About the Book :

Bhim Rao Ambedkar (1891-1956) is undoubtedly one of the greatest personalities of modern India. His stupendous contribution to the socio-political transformation of the modern Indian societies towards unimaginable greater social inclusion and unprecedented egalitarian social justice is well documented in this book. His writings and speeches are a clear reflection of the rational-liberal articulation of the centuries of rigidly caste-ridden Indian societies. His thoughts and ideas on the emancipation of the oppressed castes and class particularly Scheduled Caste and women are powerful inspiration for creative social deconstruction and reconstruction towards liberal, just and egalitarian society.  However, his life and message as a monumental contribution to the modern Indian society is not adequately recognized and appreciated. Even though Bharat Ratna was conferred on him posthumously but perhaps due to the deep-seated caste prejudices he suffered immensely in his lifetime so also even after death subtle biases and prejudices persisted against his works. Against this background the book is a tribute for him.
