The caste question has been a point of debate since long for the Communist movement of India. There is a lengthy debate on the caste question between Ambedkarism and Marxism. There are also some streams which talk of convergence between Marxism and Ambedkarism. The moot question remains: what is the radical project that Ambedkar presents for the solution of caste question or the annihilation of caste? There has been a lot of writing and study on this question from a Marxist viewpoint in recent times. Ranganayakamma has already published a book on the Marxist view regarding Ambedkar’s thoughts on the caste question and a thought-provoking debate on the book still continues. Dalit intellectuals have often accused Marxism of ignoring the caste question or being limited to a class reductionist analysis and being unable to understand Ambedkar’s view or not giving it the due respect. Ranganayakamma has been refuting these accusations for a long time. She has been answering the questions raised, giving a Marxist analysis of the caste question and presenting a sharp critique of Ambedkar’s thoughts. Her book ‘For the solution of the ‘Caste’ question, Buddha is not enough, Ambedkar is not enough either, Marx is a must’ triggered a widespread debate after its publication in Telugu and English. Rahul Foundation has published it in Hindi in 2008 and it has been in the centre of debate since then. Various accusations were made against her by Dalit intellectuals after the publication of this book. Ranganayakamma has given point wise logical answers to each of these accusations. Most of the articles in this collection are polemical articles written in response to the questions and accusations against the Marxist analysis of caste question and Ranganayakamma’s writings. We believe that the readers will also welcome this book by Ranganayakamma on a big scale and this book will be helpful in taking the debate to a meaningful and concrete conclusion.
