Book excerpt: Maharaja Sayajirao Gaikwad, known as ‘Education is the only tool for change.’ He gave scholarships to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar from degree to higher education. Scholarships were given from Baroda for three years for degree, two years for M.A., one year after graduation and once again for one year, four times for seven years. The rule of Baroda government was to give scholarship only once to any student. For Dr. Ambedkar, Maharaj broke this rule not once but thrice. Dr. Ambedkar was getting scholarships from Baroda till he completed his education. On the same scholarship, Dr. Ambedkar completed his education. Not only did he complete it, but he also acquired the knowledge to show the light in the life of the untouchables. Later, Sayajirao Maharaj forgave all these scholarships. That is to say, one realizes the great contribution of Sayajirao Maharaj in creating an epoch-maker. Taking the opportunity, Dr. Ambedkar took higher education. After that, the work done for social reform and the work done for the constitution are well known. So if we want to look at their greatness, we need to look at the hard work of today's youth, not just the fame they have gained or their degrees. Today, Indians, especially the youth, are in dire need of emulating their hard work, not just how long they have studied. The sculptor of the Indian Constitution, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was an eloquent speaker. He gave speeches on various topics from time to time for social enlightenment and social change as well as to change the minds of the people. That speech had the power of social change. Every word that came out of their mouths was weighty. Was a reality show. His speech threatened to destroy many years of tradition, superstition, and thousands of years of slavery. It takes strength, power and knowledge to break the fourfold system. That is why his speeches were written in golden letters in modern Indian history. Dr. When Ambedkar stood up to give a speech, the listener, who was listening to his speech, would keep quiet enough to make a noise. So the average listener sitting in any corner could hear his words. His patient voice sounded like an unbroken stream. Therefore, the desire to change oneself was naturally created in the minds of the common people. In short, Dr. Ambedkar’s thoughts were sky-rocketing and far ahead of time. Therefore, their speeches have become immortal. In such speeches, he spoke many times about the universal and triune truth. The grief-stricken people were blown away by the grief. Showed the untouchables a golden way to live. He always insisted that what is ours should be acquired by right. If not, he was ready to fight, satyagraha and climb on time. For this, he presented his solid views in front of everyone, regardless of who he was, in his speeches on various occasions. Many such original thoughts have been compiled in this short book. Though he gave speeches on occasion, it was full of thought. This wealth of Dr. Ambedkar’s thoughts is homogeneous, homogeneous and unbroken. There is no break in it. But for the convenience of the reader, it is divided into thirty important parts. Even when divided, the question often arises as to which area to place a particular thought. To take an example for this, while talking about the issue of untouchability, many issues like poverty of Hindustan, poverty of people, Chaturvarnya come up in it. So the question arises as to where exactly this idea should be placed. But in order to maintain homogeneity and coherence in their thoughts, the thoughts have been given together without much division. So there is a monotony in reading. These thoughts of Dr. Ambedkar are taken from the volumes of his Marathi speeches. It has been translated into English. There may be a syntactic difference between some of the original English speech ideas and the ideas in the presented collection; But that is the essence of the original thought. I think this book should be the inspiration for everyone working in various fields.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While many studies suggest that Indian Untouchables do not entirely share the hierarchical values characteristic of the caste system, Michael Moffatt argues that the most striking feature of the lowest castes is their pervasive cultural consensus with those higher in the system. Though rural Untouchables question their particular position in the system, they seldom question the system as a whole, and they maintain among themselves a set of hierarchical conceptions and institutions virtually identical to those of the dominant social order. Based on fourteen months of fieldwork with Untouchable castes in two villages in Tamil Nadu, south India, Professor Moffatt's analysis specifies ways in which the Untouchables are both excluded and included by the higher castes. Ethnographically, he pursues his structural analysis in two related domains: Untouchable social structure, and Untouchable religious belief and practice. The author finds that in those aspects of their lives where Untouchables are excluded from larger village life, they replicate in their own community nearly every institution, role, and ranked relation from which they have been excluded. Where the Untouchables are included by the higher castes, they complete the hierarchical whole by accepting their low position and playing their assigned roles. Thus the most oppressed members of Indian society are often among the truest believers in the system. Originally published in 1979.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why has monarchy been such a prevalent institution throughout history and in such a diverse range of societies? Kingship is at the heart of both ritual and politics and has major implications for the theory of social and cultural anthropology. Yet, despite the contemporary fascination with royalty, anthropologists have sorely neglected the subject in recent decades. This book combines a strong theoretical argument with a wealth of ethnography from kingships in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Quigley gives a timely and much-needed overview of the anthropology of kingship and a crucial reassessment of the contributions of Frazer and Hocart to debates about the nature and function of royal ritual. From diverse fieldwork sites, a number of eminent anthropologists demonstrate how ritual and power intertwine to produce a series of variations around myth, tragedy and historical realities. However, underneath this diversity, two common themes invariably emerge: the attempt to portray kingship as timeless and perfect, and the dual nature of the king as sacred being and scapegoat.

Download or read book For the solution of the ‘Caste’ question Buddha is not enough Ambedkar is not enough either Marx is a Must written by Ranganayakamma and published by Sweet Home Publications. This book was released on 2001 with total page 445 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For the solution of the ‘Caste’ question Buddha is not enough Ambedkar is not enough either Marx is a Must This is neither Buddha's biography nor Ambedkar's. Further, it is not Marx's biography either. This is a discussion concerning the 'Dalit' question based exclusively on Ambedkar's writings. However, I have confined myself only to those writings that deal with the 'Dalit' question and Caste system. Ambedkar had also discussed other issues like Division of labour, Division of Labourers, poverty, unemployment and economic exploitation. These issues are connected with the Dalit question and the Caste system. Hence all these issues find place in this book. Ambedkar had also written on other themes like the 'Problem of the Rupee' and Large Scale Industry. But I have not included those issues which are not directly connected with the Dalit question. Even regarding Gandhi, I have not considered issues other than those Ambedkar cited in connection with the Dalit question. For the purpose of this essay, I wanted to rely only on Ambedkar's writings. But, in couple of contexts where I could not find relevant information in Ambedkar's works, I had to turn to a few references from his biographies. I have given these details in the respective contexts. The world needs the theory that is powerful enough to illuminate the path. It is irrelevant whether that theoretician is Buddha, Marx, Ambedkar or someone else. That which remedies the disease alone is a medicine! That which emancipates from sufferings alone is the higher path. If it is Buddhism, we are obliged to follow it, to revere it. The question, however, is to ascertain which is the higher path! This is the thing, which we must ascertain. We are obliged to follow the thing which we ascertain to be the higher path. We need to read Ambedkar's writings in order to arrive at a correct understanding of many issues which he discussed: the caste system, untouchability, poverty, Buddhism, Marxism, etc. We have to read them carefully and seriously. Whatever we read, we have to take everything that is useful. We have to follow it. We have to correct whatever needs correction. We have to abandon whatever is not useful. To do all this, however, we must first understand Ambedkar's ideas correctly. Problems like castes and untouchability are not things that have arisen, so to speak, yesterday or today. They have been entrenched for thousands of years. But we don't have any written literatureother than religious texts and some inscriptionsthat tells about them. The available sources may not be useful in many contexts. Yet they may be useful to some extent in some contexts. When we don't find clear-cut bases for the problems, however, there is no way out except attempting to understand them by means of our own logic.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Inspired by egalitarian doctrines, the Dalit communities in India have been fighting for basic human and civic rights since the middle of the nineteenth century. In this book, Shailaja Paik focuses on the struggle of Dalit women in one arena - the realm of formal education – and examines a range of interconnected social, cultural and political questions. What did education mean to women? How did changes in women’s education affect their views of themselves and their domestic work, public employment, marriage, sexuality, and childbearing and rearing? What does the dissonance between the rhetoric and practice of secular education tell us about the deeper historical entanglement with modernity as experienced by Dalit communities? Dalit Women's Education in Modern India is a social and cultural history that challenges the triumphant narrative of modern secular education to analyse the constellation of social, economic, political and historical circumstances that both opened and closed opportunities to many Dalits. By focusing on marginalised Dalit women in modern Maharashtra, who have rarely been at the centre of systematic historical enquiry, Paik breathes life into their ideas, expectations, potentials, fears and frustrations. Addressing two major blind spots in the historiography of India and of the women’s movement, she historicises Dalit women’s experiences and constructs them as historical agents. The book combines archival research with historical fieldwork, and centres on themes including slum life, urban middle classes, social and sexual labour, and family, marriage and children to provide a penetrating portrait of the actions and lives of Dalit women. Elegantly conceived and convincingly argued, Dalit Women's Education in Modern India will be invaluable to students of History, Caste Politics, Women and Gender Studies, Education Studies, Urban Studies and Asian studies.

Download or read book Daughter Of Midnight - The Child Bride of Gandhi written by Arun Gandhi and published by Kings Road Publishing. This book was released on 1998-03-02 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Kastur Kapadia was betrothed to the mighty Mahatma Gandhi, father of modern India, when they were both just seven years old. The couple married when they were thirteen and Kastur had five children, the first of whom was born when she was sixteen. Though Gandhi's name has become synonymous with asceticism, this biography reveals that he enjoyed a sensuous, loving relationship with Kastur. Daughter of Midnight is the result of a lifetime of research by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma and Kastur. As well as recounting historical events behind the birth of a nation, Daughter of Midnight is also a love story, which ended with the terrible tragedy of Gandhi's assassination by a Hindu extremist in New Delhi in 1948. Though Gandhi's strength and resolution defeated all the resources of the British Empire he was not always confident, the author reveals. When the young Gandhi, as a barrister in Bombay, could not open his mouth for fear during his first ever court case, Kastur consoled him and soothed the humiliation he felt at being laughed at by his contemporaries. The woman who shared Gandhi's sorrows, his triumphs and his tragedies also knew the flaws and human frailities of the great leader. Together Mahatma and Kastur laid the foundations for the movement of nonviolence to which they devoted their lives. When Mahatma was imprisoned, Kastur was often jailed with him. No obstacle was too great for this extraordinary woman who gave up a life of wealth for one of utter poverty. When Kastur died the whole nation wept for the woman the people called simply 'Ba'...Mother.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book has a collection of ten articles written during 1982–2007 and an exhaustive introduction on the structural features of Indian society, that is, the enduring social groups, institutions and processes, such as caste, tribe, sect, rural-urban relations, etc. The book views Indian society in contemporary as well as historical perspective, based on a wealth of field research as well as archival material. The book focuses on the significance of village studies in transforming the understanding of Indian society and also shows how urban centres have been useful in shaping society. Taking a critical look at the prevailing thinking on various structures and institutions, the author uses insights derived from his comprehensive studies of kinship, marriage, religion, and grassroots politics in advancing their studies. He points out the strengths and weaknesses of these structures and institutions and the direction in which they are changing with respect to modern time. As against the overwhelming emphasis on the hierarchical dimension of caste, this book focuses on its horizontal dimension, that is, every caste’s population spread over villages and towns in an area, its internal organization and differentiation based on networks of kinship, marriage, patron-client relationship, and role of endogamy versus hypergamy in maintaining its boundaries. The tribes are also seen in the same perspective, emphasizing the tribe-caste homology. Finally, the book provides information on important issues like policy of reservations, the reliability of censuses and surveys of castes and tribes, removal of untouchability, growth of organized religion and secularization.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As we march forward to the third millennium the task of building a humane society is a formidable one. Movements in search of a new world order such as "full humanity", "universal brotherhood", "unified world society" etc. are efforts towards a better humanity. A "liberated society" is one of such visions that can enlighten the minds of many. It is striking that the two visions - the Hindu (Gandhian) and the Christian - under study are interwoven with the key points: the kingdom of God, non-violence, and human values. This investigation is comparative in nature. It is divided into three parts. Parts One and Two examine the Gandhian and Christian vision respectively. Part Three is comparative with points of convergence, divergence and meeting points. Liberated society through dialogue is the proposal of this study towards a unified world society.
