The Doctor and the Saint: Ambedkar, Gandhi and the battle against caste


Abstract:
ANNIHILATION OF CASTE is the nearly eighty-year-old text of a speech that was never delivered. When I first read it I felt as though somebody had walked into a dim room and opened the windows. Reading Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar bridges the gap between what most Indians are schooled to believe in and the reality we experience every day of our lives.
