        An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering Bhimrao Ambedkar 1891 1956 Founding Father, Modern IndiaMA 1915, PhD 1927LLD 1952 hon Ambedkar was a leader in the struggle for Indian independence, the architect of the new nation s constitution, and the champion of civil rights for the 60 million members of the untouchable caste, to which he belonged He spoke and wrote ceaselessly on behalf of untouchables, but his passion for justice was broad in 1950 he resigned from his position as the country s first minister of law when Nehru s cabinet refused to pass the Women s Rights Bill Ambedkar was committed to maintaining his independence, and many of the positions he staked out in a long and complex relationship with Gandhi on the future of Hinduism, for example remain central to debate within Indian society.Source c250lumbia c250_celebraFrom Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar popularly also known as Babasaheb, was an Indian jurist, political leader, philosopher, anthropologist, historian, orator, economist, and editor He was also the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of Indian Constitution Born into a poor Mahar considered an Untouchable caste family, Ambedkar spent his whole life fighting against social discrimination, the system of Chaturvarna the categorization of Hindu society into four varnas and the Hindu caste system He converted to Buddhism and is also credited with providing a spark for the conversion of hundreds of thousands of untouchables to Theravada Buddhism Ambedkar was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India s highest civilian award, in 1990.Overcoming numerous social and financial obstacles, Ambedkar became one of the first outcastes to obtain a college education in India Eventually earning law degrees and multiple doctorates for his study and research in law, economics and political science from Columbia University and the London School of Economics, Ambedkar gained a reputation as a scholar and practiced law for a few years, later campaigning by publishing journals advocating political rights and social freedom for India s so called untouchables He is regarded as a Bodhisattva by some Indian Buddhists, though he never claimed himself to be a Bodhisattva.About His Studies at Columbia University Ambedkar received a scholarship to Columbia from the Maharajah of Baroda He earned his MA in 1915 and then obtained a DSc at the London School of Economics before being awarded his Columbia PhD in 1927 In 1952, Columbia presented him with an honorary doctorate for his service as a great social reformer and a valiant upholder of human rights In 1995, a bronze bust of Ambedkar was donated to Lehman Library by the Federation of Ambedkarite and Buddhist Organizations of the United Kingdom.At Columbia, Ambedkar studied under John Dewey, who inspired many of his ideas about equality and social justice Ambedkar later recounted that at Columbia he experienced social equality for the first time The best friends I have had in my life, he told the New York Times in 1930, were some of my classmates at Columbia and my great professors, John Dewey, James Shotwell, Edwin Seligman, and James Harvey Robinson.

    1. couldn't get to the point fast enough - but let me know if i should skip to some chapter/page or sth i shouldn't miss


    2. In this book of selected work from Ambedkar's essays, Sharmila Rege expresses her dismay at the feminist movement's silence about Ambedkar's contribution to women's rights in India. By the time I finished the book, I was convinced of her argument. There are three sections in this book. In the first section, Rege introduces two of Ambedkar's essays: 1) Castes in India: Their Mechanism, Genesis and Development 2) The Rise and Fall of the Hindu Woman. In the first essay, Ambedkar explains the mecha [...]


    3. It may be because I am new to academic writing out of coursework, but I really had to struggle through Shalini Rege's introductory stuff. Not that it's bad I am grateful for all the context. It's probably my fault but I still think the introduction could have been a bit shorter maybe. The essays were really good, and I am going to read them again. Partly because I have to hahaI read this book in two days in different airports and I am so in awe of Babasaheb right now. I can't believe we went thr [...]




    4. One of the best books on freedom of Indian women. It also highlights the attitude ants resistance that prevails against the liberty of women in India even today.
