A lawyer and a politician, Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar left a deep impression on Indian society for at least three main reasons: he had a major influence on drawing up the Constitution of India; he introduced persons regarded as ’’untouchables’’ into the centre of Indian political life; and, finally, he initiated a renewal of Buddhism in India. Father of the Constitution and virulent critic of the caste system, he remains today a key figure for the Dalits, who have a hard time finding their way into the official narratives of the struggle for independence. Dr. Ambedkar said that, "Men do not become society by living in physical proximity any more than a man ceases to be member of his society by living so many miles away from other man. This book tells about great vision of Babasaheb Ambedkar. He had handled the issues like Family Planning, Woman Empowerment, Water Power Plant in a very broad manner. His thoughts are still really very relevant today to save our country from corruption, increasing birth rate etc. Every person interested to learn about Ambedkar and his philosophy must read this book.
