Hundreds of people were waiting as the train drew in from Bombay. Waving garlands, banners and lamps they roared as a smiling, orange-robed figure stepped down. The crowds came from the poorest section of Indian society, but the monk they were greeting hailed from Tooting, London. Terry Pilchick (Nagabodhi) was a witness to this crazy reversal of the guru syndrome and other extraordinary results of a revolution begun by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar thirty years earlier. It was then that Dr Ambedkar-champion of India’s 60 million Untouchables’-had led a peaceful revolt. Leaving behind the oppression of the caste system, he and his followers had converted to Buddhism. Jai Bhim is a colorful, humorous yet moving meeting with these new Buddhists and the unique revolution they are building in the city slums and remote villages of modern India. A travel book which can extend the moral as well as the imaginative … horizons of the reader.-Faith and Freedom
