Ambedkar was a prolific student, earning doctorates in economics from both Columbia University and the London School of Economics, and gained a reputation as a scholar for his research in law, economics and political science. In his early career he was an economist, professor, and lawyer. His later life was marked by his political activities; he became involved in campaigning and negotiations for India's independence, publishing journals, advocating political rights and social freedom for Dalits, and contributing significantly to the establishment of the state of India. In 1956 he converted to Buddhism, initiating mass conversions of Dalits.

A detailed in depth study of the contradictions in the Puranas and the scriptures of Hinduism by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution. His aim is to show the contraditions within the mythologies and the utter lack of coherence in the scriptures of Hinduism. The techniques of manipulative reinterpretation and circumlocution are used to confuse common people and to establish what is otherwise totally illogical. Dr. Ambedkar believed that this was with the ulterior motive of holding the masses under Brahminic domination. This book is in public domain. However this is the first time this book is published in its entire form because of its sensitivity.

This work offers a series of theological explorations of themes not usually addressed in standard treatments of the Hindu tradition. RambachanÂs retrieval of these distinctive insights of Hindu theology has implications that extend across the world's religions, and that touches upon key areas of mutual interest and concern. Beginning with a general introduction to the Hindu theological tradition, the book examines several key issues in Hindu theology and its engagement with contemporary religious, social, political, and inter-faith questions, including the theological methods employed in the study of Hinduism, the discernment of vocation, the theological grounds for social justice in the Hindu tradition, religion and nationalism, violence and non-violence, theological resources for interreligious dialogue (especially among Hindus and Christians), hospitality and openness to the stranger, and spirituality and holiness. In exploring these issues, this study draws deeply from Hindu authoritative sources, but does not limit itself to description. Each chapter is also a work in constructive theology, offering an interpretation of the Hindu tradition appropriate for life in our contemporary world. Essays in Hindu Theology will be of great interest not only to theologians and scholars, but to all who are invested in interreligious understanding and theological engagements with modern challenges.

"When you are studying any matter, or considering any philosophy, ask yourself only what are the facts and what is the truth that the facts bear out. Never let yourself be diverted either by what you wish to believe, or by what you think would have beneficent social effects if it were believed. But look only, and solely, at what are the facts. That is the intellectual thing that I should wish to say." - Bertrand Russell Is Hinduism a religion? Are Aryan and Dravidian a different race altogether? How and when did caste by birth came into existence? Are Veerashaivism and Lingayathism the same? What was the real purpose of the Kalyana Revolt? How did ancient India lose its technological edge? Where did all that glory and glitter of India's wealth go? This book makes an honest, analytical attempt into answering the burning questions of every ordinary Indian. An attempt to analyze put forth the truth in a manner Mr. Russel set forth.
