Written in 1936, it really is an audacious denunciation of Hinduism and its caste approach. Ambedkar – a determine like W.E.B. Du Bois – deals a scholarly critique of Hindu scriptures, scriptures that sanction a rigidly hierarchical and iniquitous social method. The world’s best-known Hindu, Mahatma Gandhi, replied publicly to the provocation. The hatchet was once by no means buried. Arundhati Roy introduces this commonly annotated version of Annihilation of Caste in “The health practitioner and the Saint,” examining the endurance of caste in glossy India, and the way the clash among Ambedkar and Gandhi maintains to resonate. Roy takes us to the start of Gandhi’s political profession in South Africa, the place his perspectives on race, caste and imperialism have been formed. She tracks Ambedkar’s emergence as an immense political determine within the nationwide flow, and indicates how his scholarship and intelligence illuminated a political fight beset by means of sectarianism and obscurantism. Roy breathes new existence into Ambedkar’s anti-caste utopia, and says that and not using a Dalit revolution, India will stay hobbled via systemic inequality.
