Educate, Organize, Agitate

Dr. B R Ambedkar
All Indians were made to read lessons on Ambedkar in their school curriculum. But hardly anybody thought of including his ideals in social studies.
I happened to read a testament to his intelligence and critical thinking; a paper read by Ambedkar at an anthropological seminar in New York on 9 May 1916.
The paper "Castes in India: Their mechanism, Genesis and Development" can be found here.
