Ambedkar's India - Compilation of speeches by Srishti Publications


Ambedkar's India - Compilation of speeches by Srishti Publications

We have grown up hearing  The stories of Mahatma Gandhi during the freedom struggle. Several books and movies have told us the tales of many unsung heroes. But till recently, we were unaware of who Dr. B. R. Ambedkar was in his life. We have mugged up the definition that he is 'The Architect of Indian Constitution'. 

Who was Dr. B.R. Ambedkar?

It took 73 years for India to declare his birthday as a public holiday. It is a matter of shame that we never tried to understand who he really was.

Ambedkar's India, a collection of three speeches by Dr. B.R.Ambedkar. In the first speech 'Annihilation of caste', he clearly states how the caste system has deteriorated our country. He gives a not so subtle account of how better India would have been without this caste system. The second one 'Grammar of Anarchy', due to the brutal honesty and fire of the facts proposed, was not allowed to be delivered. Had he been allowed to deliver the speech, it would gave been a milestone in Indian history. Dr. Ambedkar has explicitly shown his disagreement with Mahatma. He was a man of fire. His speech portrays his real fervor and proves that he is a hero who was not given the due credit for a quarter of a century. 

He speaks unrelentingly against caste discrimination. His speech is textbook material for history students. The only part which I disliked was that he was calling out the caste system of Hindus. The same with other religions could have been addressed. 

Special appreciation to Srishti Publications for bringing the book to the readers.

  1. Yes, caste system is present in every part of the society and it needs to be treated. I actually think once the mindset of people change, it would automatically be eradicated. The day Public start focusing on the talent not on their surname, we will progress.
