At this same venue in Mumbai, on 21st December 2014, triggered by the Roy-Navayana project of ‘introducing’ Annihilation of Caste, the debate, led by Dr Suresh Mane and other writers from Round Table India, on the attempted appropriation of Babasaheb Ambedkar’s works gathered critical momentum. The book ‘Hatred in the belly: Politics behind the appropriation of Dr Ambedkar’s writings’ is a result of those deliberations.
The current discussion, marked also by the launch of the book, ‘Hatred in the Belly: Politics behind the appropriation of Dr Ambedkar’s Writings’ published by The Shared Mirror Publishing House, aims to not just revisit the issues touched upon more than one year ago, but also attempt to unveil and understand Brahmanic hegemony in a larger context.
The panelists would expose Brahmanic hegemony as a historical process which has shaped institutions, social relationships, knowledge production and access to material and cultural resources. The panel discussion would be followed by an interactive session with the editor and authors of the book.
All are welcome!
