Annihilation of Caste and Other Essays
“Indifferentism is the worst kind of disease...” Dr B. R. Ambedkar was a politician and social reformer. He was the chief architect of the Constitution of India and the first Law Minister of India. He has written a series of essays where he has spoken about untouchability and Hinduism. Determined to put an end to the social stratification, Ambedkar published Annihilation of Caste (1936) where he denounced the caste system. The treatise elaborates the persecutions people of the lower strata underwent. Ambedkar questions the restrictions on inter-caste relationships and opines that the caste system prevailed due to endogamy. Modern India fondly remembers Ambedkar for his determination that elevated the status of the marginalised and gave them persistent hope.
