Description

About the Book: Against the Madness of Manu


A Brahman mega convention in contemporary Pune reasserts faithin endogamy for national interest , and imposes new codes onBrahman women. A Brahman Congress leader suggests that a Dalitchief minister be raped and paid compensation. In his 1916 paperCastes in India , the 25-year-old Ambedkar offered the insight thatthe caste system thrives by its control of women, and that caste isa product of sustained endogamy. Since then, till the time hepiloted the Hindu Code Bill, seeking to radicalise women s rightsin the 1950s, Ambedkar deployed a range of arguments to make hiscase against Brahmanism and its twin, patriarchy.

While Ambedkar s original insights have been neglected bysociologists, political theorists and even feminists, they havebeen kept alive, celebrated and memorialised by Dalit musicaltroupes and booklets in Maharashtra. Sharmila Rege, in thiscompelling selection of Ambedkar s writings on the theme ofBrahmanical patriarchy, illuminates for us his unprecedentedsociological observations. Rege demonstrates how and why Ambedkarlaid the base for what was, properly speaking, a feminist take oncaste.
