Book Description
What does it mean to be an untouchable in india ? Why do some indians despise the touch of others? Bhimrao ramji ambedkar (1891-1956) , one of india's foremost revolutionaries, recounts his experiences of growing up untouchable and being routinely discriminated against:in school at the age of 10, in baroda after his return from columbia university , and while traveling. battling odds, ambedkar drafted the constitution of india and eventually embraced buddhism. experiences similar to ambedkar's continue to haunt a majority of india's 170 million dalits. they are still denied water, shelter and the basic dignities of life. in this ground breaking work, pardhan gond artists durgabai vyam and subhash vyam interweave historical events like the mahad satyagraha with contemporary incidents. defying conventional grammar, they infuse fresh energy into the graphic idiom through their magical art mounted on an epic scale.
