Prof. Anupama Rao on Babasaheb Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s conversion to Buddhism

I think he sees Buddhist conversion not as religious conversion from one religion to another as we tent to see it. But, that it is a religious conversion that as per him poses the greatest challenge to the Hindu order. That is why I call it a more of a secular criticism, because it is then challenging Hinduism as an order of power.

Dr. Satish Poduval on Freedom Of Speech vs. Deepening Of Democracy

How might we try and go beyond the absolutist, blinkered positioned that are dominant in the media today—positions that assert that if you are not for free speech as an absolute value, then you are somehow for a police state of the Stalinist or Talibanist variety? Is there something beyond this way of framing the debate?

Prof. Satyanarayana on Ambedkar Cartoon Controversy – Part II

If you take the syllabus of political science at post graduate level or at various levels, are we reading Ambedkar as a political thinker? You might have one or two articles from scholars, maybe from Gail Omvedt or Eleanor (Zelliot) or recently from Valerian Rodriques on Ambedkar’s thought, or Ambedkar as an untouchable thinker, but not Ambedkar as a political theorist.
