Although Ambedkar is thought to be the chief architect of the Constitution (that got here into impact on January 26, 1950), his particular roles as the chairman of the Drafting Committee will not be broadly mentioned.
The on-line discussion, organised by the Bangalore International Centre, is predicated on Aakash Singh Rathore’s Ambedkar’s Preamble, a ebook that makes an attempt to set up how and why the Preamble to the Constitution of India is actually an “Ambedkarite preamble”. It explores how Ambedkar got here up with the Constitution’s central ideas of the Preamble: justice, liberty, equality, fraternity, dignity, and nation.
Aakash is a Fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, and has taught at Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi University, in addition to Rutgers, UPenn, the University of Toronto, Humboldt University (Berlin), and LUISS University (Rome).
Policy professional Shruti Viswanathan, who runs ‘The Equals Project‘ (that promotes conversations round fairness and the Constitution with kids), will talk about the ebook with the writer.
