We need to assess Ambedkar’s thought and ideology. We forget that he was one of modern India’s first great economic thinker, a statesman, constitutional draftsman and the first Law Minister who ensured the codification of Hindu law. He declared that capitalism and Brahminism were the twin enemies of the people. He made our Constitution, in the words of Granville Austin, ‘a first and foremost social document’. He believed that a society based on liberty, equality and fraternity should be the only alternative to a ‘caste society’. But we failed to do justice to the towering intellect that Ambedkar was. Successive governments have undermined the Constitution he so admirably piloted. May we never cease to strive for the ideals he dedicated his life to.
