This book contains the blind eye towards caste prejudice, capitalism, favouritism in India, by referring to Ambedkar’sspeech by Gandhian intellectuals. It also talks about the Hindu nation of the Sangh Parivar. In order to understand and deal with inequality in India, Arundhati Roy puts emphasis that we must test both the political development and the impact of Gandhi. It is to be said that why the enlightened challenge given to Gandhi’s almost divine image by Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar was suppressed by the elite class of India.
In the analysis of Arundhati Roy, we see that Ambedkar’sfight for justice has been systematically abrogated, in favourof strengthening caste policies, which results in the current Indian nation which is independent of the British rule today, is powerful at the world level, but even today the caste system is deeply inclined.
Arundhati Roy, writer of this book was present on the occasion and said, “The subject of this book is quite self-centred, and it is an expansion analysis on Ambedkar. Ambedkar and Gandhi have not been compared in this book. This is a story about how a particular class was totally ignored socially and politically.”
Book’s co-translator, Ratan Lal said, “History has treated Ambedkar brutally, history hid Ambedkar’s writings from the eyes of the world, but still Ambedkar’s people kept him alive in their hearts”.
Translator Anil Yadav ‘Jaihind’ sharing his experience on this book said, “Our country needs a social revolution and this revolution can come by reading, this book. It can revolutionize this country. While reading this book in English, I was shocked. I have tried to keep it simple while translating this book. It is difficult to translate Arundhati’s books because one word has many meanings. We have tried our best not to put our own interpretation in the script”.
