The above book is a collection of essays that he wrote, so it is not a book as such but a collection of his articles.
I first started reading about Ambedkar ~2011 from here – http://pragati.nationalinterest.in/wp…. It really explained how Ambedkar was vastly misunderstood in the public space.
And it was then that I started reading his articles. A lot of them are very sensible, and good critiques of both Gandhism and of course Hindutva. Some of the essays that I liked from the collection are –
– Ranade, Gandhi and Jinnah
– Caste, class and Democracy
– Buddha and Karl Marx
– Is there a case for Pakistan
– The Hindu Code Bill
On reading his writings one gets the sense that he was probably the more sensible and less emotional sorts from the freedom fighting generation. I feel people should take time out and read atleast a few of his articles.
A special mention for his writing style, though most of his subjects were very complex he writes in a very simple and clear language. Needless to say the reading is very heavy and the essays I have read are over a period of 5 years.
Pretty interesting interview from him –
