The present book is not to be construed as negation or refutation of ideas and philosophy of Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar for building a new society in India. Instead, it accepts the preposition ‘beyond’ purely in the temporal sense and attempts briefly to analyse some of his ideas and theories in the context of the present-day society in India. Such an. attempt has been felt necessary because a lot of changes have occurred, since his death, in every walk of life, including even Dalits in the country. Some of these changes have definitely followed the paths visualised by him.Therefore, Beyond Ambedkar examines why some and not other types of changes have followed the paths suggested by him. More precisely, changes in the areas of education and social integration; social stratification and mobility; atrocities, protest movements and socio-political consciousness for social identity, etc. have been examined in the case of the most deprived community like Scheduled Castes or Dalits whose social change and mobility are ‘sponsored’ through the policy of protective discrimination or reservation.
