Collected Works of Dr. Ambedkar
Lohia Today
is more than the expected elation
about Dr B R Ambedkar during his
125th anniversary in 2016. There
background behind the events some
wild and many political and tactical
moves during the last few years that
made Ambedkar who is made a
symbol of Dalit identity, relevant. But
Dr Ambedkar like his contemporary Dr
Lohia studied and observed in a non-
imperialist country and was influenced
by liberal and socialist thinkers of his
time. Babasaheb was very critical
about the Hindu chauvinism,
Brahmanism, etc  and written
extensively on Riddles in Hinduism
and on 'Annihilation of Caste '
referred to by Madhu Limaye as the
non- communist manifesto of
annihilation of castes, the entrenched
classes. So far around 20 volumes of
Writings and Speeches of Dr B R
Ambedkar are published and we are
happy that we could post the available
writings on our website for the benefit
of our readers.
