Why Dr.

Ambedkar is relevant in todays world

1. Dr Ambedkar understood individual suffering as social suffering; finding the root of India’s
social suffering to be caste, so that in his view the end of suffering would be the
‘annihilation of caste.
2. Dr Ambedkar insisted that the conditions of the poor were the result not of individual
disappointments but of the working of the social system under which they lived.
3. Dr Ambedkar does not separate social inequality from economic inequality, or caste from
class. Indeed, Dr Ambedkar was the only person in his time to link the rights of the
oppressed classes and the right of Dalits.
4. Addressing the needs the marginalised is a commitment of the international Sustainable
Development Goals to ‘end poverty in all its forms’, to reduce inequality of opportunity, to
provide decent work for all, ending modern forms of slavery and discrimination.
5. Dr Ambedkar insisted that political freedom is of limited value without social freedom;
and that in the absence of economic democracy (that is freedom of opportunity) political
democracy would be under threat.
6. It is Dr Babasaheb’s clarity about what real democracy means, combined with his loyalty
to the experience of the downtrodden that makes him so relevant as a guide to social
policy makers, educators, politicians and reformers for the coming years,
