Champion of Human Rights B.R. Ambedkar in 21st Century (Making India Indivisible)

B.J. Bhandutia (Author)
Synopsis The book deals with the problems and powers of the weaker sections of Indian society, especially with the pitiable conditions of the Dalits, in the voice and views of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar.  It was Dr. Ambedkar who fought for the human rights of Dalits, the most oppressed and exploited lot of the Hindu Society.  Dr. Ambedkar was the saviour and protector of their rights, who brought their problems in the forefront during the freedom movement as a separate element in the Indian population, who needed special attention to ameliorate and emancipate in a respectable manner.  The author has analysed the various aspects of Dr. Ambedkar’s life and mission regarding the rights and opportunities denied to the Scheduled Castes or the Dalits for the centuries past. They were also denied the human rights to move on the road of education, dignity and freedom, and were made the victims of torture, serfdom and salvery.  The book shows as to how to bring the Dalits into the mainstream of national life of India.  Hence the book is an important document to read and to know the acute problems of casteism and discrimination against the Dalits for whom Dr. Ambedkar was the champion of human rights and also for others with all his mind and might in the interests of the downtrodden.
