Ambedkar A Life Shashi Tharoor PDF

Among the most revered of Indians, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar MA, MSc, Ph.D., DSc, DLitt, Bar-at-Law, is revered second only to Mahatma Gandhi in terms of the number of his statues across the country. During a recent poll in which over 20 million votes were cast to determine the ‘greatest Indian’ of modern times, he overtook Gandhi. In order to claim him, all the major political parties compete with one another. In the Dalit community, he is revered as a figure who outlawed untouchability and fought to give dignity to the community.

Most importantly, he is considered the father of the Indian Constitution, the reason that India remains a democracy with liberal, secular, plural values (even though these values are under attack at the moment) that seek to uplift the downtrodden and uphold the individual’s rights. Shashi Tharoor writes: ‘Dr. Ambedkar’s greatness cannot be reduced to one achievement, since all of them were extraordinarily impressive.’

Tharoor presents Ambedkar’s story with clarity, insight, and admiration in this new biography. In the book, he describes how Mahar was born into a family of Mahars in the Bombay Presidency on 14 April 1891 and died in Delhi on 6 December 1956. The author describes the humiliations and hurdles Ambedkar overcame in a society that stigmatized the communities he was born into, and how he overcame them with single-minded determination.

Throughout the book, we are shown Ambedkar’s battles to abolish untouchability, his disputes with other intellectuals and political leaders of his time, including Gandhi and Nehru, and his determination to institute a visionary Constitution that enshrines inalienable human rights and modern notions of social justice in India.

Through the force of his intellect and the power of his pen, Tharoor says, he transformed the lives of millions yet unborn, bringing an ancient civilization into the modern era. An insightful and thoroughly researched biography of one of the greatest Indians who ever lived, Ambedkar: A Life offers readers a fresh understanding of one of the greatest Indians in history.
