BR Ambedkar And The Challenges for India’s Democracy Today
“The formal framework of democracy is of no value and would indeed be a misfit if there was no social democracy.”
“What you have lost others have gained. Your humiliations are a matter of pride with others. You are made to suffer wants, privations and humiliations not because it was pre-ordained by the sins committed in your previous birth, but because of the overpowering tyranny and treachery of those who are above you. You have no lands because others have usurped them; you …

Of Saffron Brigade’s ‘Nationalism’ and Branding ‘Others’ as ‘Anti-Nationals’
Even as people across the country continue to protest against Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder, the RSS-BJP-ABVP’s predictable arrogance continues. In Mumbai yesterday, RSS workers beat up protestors in Dharavi with lathis and rods. In HCU, the Vice Chancellor Appa Rao is yet to resign. He has gone on “long leave”, and in his place the MHRD has arrogantly appointed Prof. Vipin Srivastava, the same man who headed the EC sub-committee which punished Rohith and his friends! In solidarity with the #ChaloHCU call …
Today, as we continue to demand action against those responsible for Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder, the horrific news of 3 more suicides reached us. Three women students committed suicide in Tamil Nadu, driven to despair and death by the massive fees charged by private education “shops” masquerading as colleges. Across the country, students have been protesting against fee hikes and privatisation of education. And now, 3 women students, bearing the brunt of this mercenary commercialisation, have chosen to kill themselves to draw the country’s attention.
It is now one week since …
In the few days that have passed since Rohith Vemula’s tragic death, we have witnessed protests in campuses across the country. As we all now know, Rohith and four other Dalit research scholars and activists of Ambedkar Students’ Association (ASA) were punished by the University of Hyderabad (UoH), based on fabricated charges. This punishment was clearly a result of the severe pressure exerted by ABVP, BJP MLC Ramachandra Rao, BJP MP and Union Minister for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya and HRD Minister Smriti Irani. Rohith along with other students had …
