About The Book

The effort of Ambedkar and Gandhi led to the legal abolition of Untouchability, Constitutional support and guarantees to ameliorate the lot of the ex-Untouchables-the Schoeduled Castes, and subsequent legislative and executive action for their upliftment.

The primary sources of information for this study have been the writings, correspondence and speeches of Ambedkar and Gandhi, archival material and the private collections of associates of Ambedkar and Gandhi. These have been supplemented by personal interviews with associates of Ambedkar and Gandhi.

I am grateful to the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, Elphinstone College, Bombay and the University of Bombay for enabling me to undertake the study under the U.G.C. Teachers Fellowship Scheme.
