डॉ. #Ambedkar से पढ़ने की तरकीब सीखने लायक है

१. #Finish - एक शाम उन्होंने किताब उठायी तो चार बजे सुबह खत्म कर ही सोए। एक मोटी किताब में 64 घंटे तक नित्य कर्म के अतिरिक्त कुछ और नहीं किया

२. #Improve #PageCounts- वेनिस और लंदन की यात्रा में उन्होंने 6000 पृष्ठ पढ़े
३. #Sleep on books- वह अपने बिस्तर के साथ लगे स्टूल पर दर्जन भर किताबें रखते थे, जिन्हें पढ़ते हुए देर रात सोते थे।

४. #Write on books- वह पुस्तकों को पढ़ कर उन्हें अपने लेखों में सम्मिलित करते थे।

५. #Collect books- उनका संग्रह भारत के सबसे बड़े निजी संग्रहों में था
इतना पढ़ने के बाद भी उन्होंने कहा, “दुनिया की सभी महत्वपूर्ण किताबें पढ़ने के लिए मुझे नौ जन्म लेने होंगे”

६. #accessibility - पुस्तकों कहाँ रखी है, #lighting कैसी है, और वहाँ बैठने की जगह है या नहीं, यह भी महत्वपूर्ण है

It's a very privileged point view when UC ppl spout nonsense about "Eating along with Dalits"!You think you are doing a favor onto us? By eating with us? If you really believe in EQUALITY, then let your daughter or son marry a Dalit. Savarkar also propagated this ROTI BETI!
This shameless bugger #DarsanamSharma had the audacity to come to an SC concalve & cry about RESERVATION. Shame on these SC organizers for calling a castiest BIGOT like him

Nobody talks about the flaws within the SC community! They are used to being "Baanisa" to these UC ayyagarus! Problem is with us, not them!

#Ambedkar #Myleader

இந்திய அரசியலமைப்பு சட்ட மசோதாவை நிறைவேற்றி அதன் மீதான விவாதம் நடந்துக்கொண்டிருந்த காலம்.அன்று ஒரு மாலை அம்பேத்கர் தீவிரமாக பல புத்தகங்களை புரட்டிப்பார்த்து குறிப்புகள் எடுத்துக்கொண்டிருந்தார்.அவரின் வீட்டு பணியாளரான ரட்டு என்றும் இல்லாத அளவு இன்று அம்பேத்கர்
மிகவும் கவலையாகவும் படப்படப்புடனும் இருப்பதை பார்க்கிறார்.வேலைநேரம் முடிந்துவிட்டதால் விடைப்பேற வேண்டி அம்பேத்கரிடம் "சாப் என் வேலை முடிந்துவிட்டது நான் கிளம்புகிறேன் உங்களுக்கு வேறு எதாவது உதவி வேண்டுமா" என்கிறார்.அப்போது மாலை 6 மணி.
அன்பேத்கர் "ரட்டு எனக்கு ஒரு கப் சாய் மட்டும் வைத்துவிட்டு போக முடியுமா " என்கிறார்.ரட்டுவும் ஒரு கப் சாய் மேஜையின் மீது வைத்துவிட்டு விடைப்பெறுகிறார்.அடுத்த நாள் காலை 6 மணிக்கு ரட்டு வந்துப்பார்க்கும்போது திடுக்கிட்டு நிற்கிறார்.மேஜை மீது வைக்கப்பட்ட தேநிர் குடிக்கப்படவில்லை

The 2k kids are very different. My elder son who is in 8 (#CBSE) had to submit an assignment for the Social Sciences subject yesterday (which was the deadline) and was quite restless about the same.This is not the case normally as he is quite self reliant and organized.(1/8)
Ram and I stepped in to help him. The assignment demanded students to put up a picture which depicts #secularism, write a few lines about (glorifying) #secularism and further write about three major religions of India.(2/8)
My son exclaimed us saying it was you people who enlightened me about what is happening in our country in the name of #secularism and I have also read and understood about it. If I do an assignment glorifying something which I don't believe in just for the sake of marks, (3/8)

Throughout the history of Indo-Pak region, we had the intellectual dwarfs telling us what #Muslims should do. How dare Muslims to live under Muslim rule?

#ColonialFeminism has been in existence as long as #feminism, almost a joke now (but we have to care, to protect #Kashmir 1/n
..from this species).

Earlier, we exchanged our destiny with massacres & genocides for #Hindu rulers, or the #secularists.

The #fascist outburst in recent decades turned them as 'guardians of Muslims', framing it as '#Hindutva vs. #Secularists', imposing #Ambedkar as the.. 2/n
...solution with a holy excuse of #Dalit discourse (one more #Hindu).

But as the tide is rising, the two nation theory is back again with full force. And Insha Allah we will see many more #Islamic #republics in #Kashmir, #Maldives, #EastPakistan & elsewhere.

You see, if you look @ Dr Ambedkar merely as an icon or a personality, you're mistaken. Well, I can blame the left-liberal for toning him down to the status of anti-caste reformer & also the right-wing for appropriating him conveniently.

Thread: 'what actually is Ambedkar?'
When I'm saying #Ambedkar, I am foundationally referring to an aggregated state of critical consciousness too. Ambedkar was more than a human being. Ambedkar reflects the maxim of 'educate, organise, agitate'

When I'm saying #Ambedkar, I am also equating the position with a cognition over economics, sociology, history, anthropology, gender, politics and law. Thus, qualifying the interdisciplinary axiom as intersectional consciousness.

It's a privilege to be a Hindu, in this nation, amidst the demography of Muslims, Avarnas, Christians or Adivasis. But, especially when it comes to beef or cow smuggling, it's a "cherry on a cake" privilege if you're a Brahmin, Rajput or OBC amongst Hindus.

1/13 Image
This whole thread consist of snippets and excerpts on the matter of Hindus involvement in cow smuggling business & hate politics against Muslims, via an article (May 2021 issue) from @thecaravanindia, followed by few tweets from my end on Hindu religion's support for beef.

This whole phenomenon I call it "cowmunism" which is inherently political, apathetic & hypocritical.

To begin with one of this 'ism' feature, let's ratiocinate that the esoteric intent of Hindus involvement has also to do with getting access to the clout of cow smuggling.

On the 68th anniversary of #JohnDewey's death, here's a nice read about the pragmatist's legacy. Among other ways, Dewey's thought was influential internationally through his students, #Ambedkar and #HuShih #pragmatism #jaibhim @saap @DeweySociety…
#Ambedkar took inspiration from Dewey, and others, and created a unique version of non-foundationalist #pragmatism in India, one that used #equality, #liberty, and #fraternity as ends-in-view or ideals. He also owned more books by or about Dewey than any other contemporary author
If you're interested in the relationship between #Dewey and #Ambedkar, here's a place to start. My research and conclusions have grown since this post, but it's a helpful beginning. #jaibhim…

As @YashicaDutt has won the Sahitya Akademi Yuva Puraskar 2020 literary award for her memoir "Coming Out As Dalit," a short #THREAD on what really stuck me with me after reading the book.
The main story is very compelling. Yashica narrates her relationship to her caste identity, in detail, over decades. She puts her story in a broader social context.

What still plays in my mind today is her discussion of #Ambedkar.
I went into the book knowing a lot about #Ambedkar. I've read many of his writings. I teach about Ambedkar, including his fraught relationship with Gandhi, his religious ideas, his role in crafting the Indian constitution, his legacies today, and more.

In recent years, the Indian Constitution has been criticized primarily on two counts: that it is not "Hindu" enough and that it gives too many "concessions" to minorities.

In the very first reading of draft Indian constitution on November 4, 1948, Babasaheb Ambedkar had

responded to both criticisms (the exact quotations are longer, I have reproduced the relevant portions here):

"Another criticism against the Draft Constitution is that no part of it represents the ancient polity of India. It is said that the new Constitution should have

been drafted on the ancient Hindu model of a State and that instead of incorporating Western theories the new Constitution should have been raised and built upon village Panchayats and District Panchayats. There are others who have taken a more extreme view.

Some thoughts/excerpts on "I could not be #Hindu" by a former #RSS sevak/worker Bhanwar Meghwanshi, a #Dalit.

The book is really worth reading, just like #Ambedkar's "Annihilation of #Caste".

It is a unique 'testimony' to the RSS's #casteism.

Bhanwar has realised, in the end, that establishment of #RSS was also a partly reaction to the rise of #Dalit politics under the aegis of #Ambedkar whose first anti-caste mobilisations (including the Mahad satyagraha and temple entry movements).

In fact, Deendayal Upadhyaya defended '#casteism' even more explicitly, in Integral Humanism, a text that is still considered as its ideological charter by the RSS and BJP and other RW fringe groups.

Bhanwar experienced this as well.

It's not 'good governance day'. It's #ManusmritiDahanDivas'.

I bet, a lot many Indians are not aware about the same. During the Mahad Satyagraha, Dr Ambedkar bravely showed #Manusmriti its place.
Mahad Satyagraha was a fight to assert the Dalits’ right to access "public water", and to embrace humanity and dignity.

For Dr Ambedkar—a staunch advocate of women’s rights and emancipation—it was a political action to burn #Manusmriti publicly.

On December 25, 1927, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar burned #Manusmriti as a symbol of rejection of the religious basis of #untouchability.

Hi #twitterstorians! This is the second installment on #Srinivas. Today we focus on his concept of #sanskritization
which was key in the development of Indian #anthropology and #sociology.This is part of our history of concepts. @UoMhistdept @LeedsUniHistory @CSMCH_Edin #AHRC
#Srinivas coined the term #sanskritization in the late 1940s and early 1950s while researching the Coorgs of South India. #Sankritization was used as a way to explain how certain groups like the Lingayats of Karnataka had move up in a caste structure that was supposed to be fixed Image
The main idea behind #sanskritization is that lower castes groups imitate and adopt Sanskritic culture and values. Along with economic and political power, eventually, #sanskritization would translate into ritual power too. This would make lower caste groups to move up socially

मी तथाकथित उच्च जातीचा पोरगा अगदी मराठा वगैरे. त्यात परत काही तश्याच कमी अधिक उंचीच्या उपजाती. कागदावर ही लावतो अगदी जन्मल्यापासून पण आजकाल लाज वाटतेय याची. का?

फक्त आंबेडकर कळाले,वाचले, आत्मसात केले, अन् आचरणात आणले म्हणुन ...
नाही अजिबात नाही .....सांगतो👇
जन्म झाला माणूस म्हणून पण लगेच पुरुषी वंशाचा दिवा झालो.

नाव ठेवलं गेलं अन् आडनाव लावलं की एका धर्माचा झालो.

शाळेत जायला लागलो की नावापुढे जात आली.

थोडफार शिक्षण घेतलं की उपजात कळायला लागली.
त्यातच अंगाने मोठं झालो तेंव्हा मित्र, समाज , घरातील माणसं यांकडून काही गोष्टी कळायला लागल्या .
जसं की.... हा भीमाचा, हा महाराचा, तो मांगवाड्यातला, ते खालच्या जातीचे.......

काही गोष्टी कानावर पडून त्याबद्दल मत तयार झालं.
जसं की.... काय लावलाय तसला महार मांगी तमाशा...

Why Should We Need to rewrite History of #India, #BhimaKoregaon is false pride.
(1) Though the battle was between British troops & #Maratha under Peshwa, the soldiers of British troops were not only #mahars but also Rajputs, Marathas, Jews & Peshwa's Troops were Arabs ImageImageImageImage
#BhimaKoregaon_शौर्यदिवस is a false pride
Among 500 British troops, only 49 were from #Mahars among them almost 27 died. The retreat of Peshwa is not due to the bravery of British troops but his own fear of approaching British troops. Image
Even #Ambedkar himself has written the account of #BhimaKoregaon where he mentioned among the dead British Soldiers; 22 were Mahars or Parwaris, 16 were Marathas, 8 were Rajputs, two were Muslims,& two were probably Indian Jews
#BhimaKoregaon202 is false

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf
