Ahead of the book launch, former Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan will open an exhibition on the “Life and Times of Dr BR Ambedkar” at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library here.
The book dives deep into Ambedkar’s life, works and achievements from a scholarly perspective, and presents an unmistakable convergence between his ideals and “India’s new development course”, an official said.
In 12 chapters covering areas as diverse as infrastructure, education, socio-economic mobility, gender equality, self-reliance and many others — the book not only presents Ambedkar’s vision of India, but also takes into account several achievements of Modi and his government.
It chronicles the achievements of the Modi government in bringing formal banking services to the most remote areas, expanding health insurance and shifting from the idea of women’s empowerment to that of women-led development.
The book talks about the achievements under Modi’s leadership to highlight the comparison between India’s vision as Ambedkar saw it and its effective and logical implementation, another official said.
