    I read Gandhi as a high school student, and liked him, but it was not until I read Ambedkar that I felt like I had really found something good Ambedkar is clear, uncompromising, unadulterated He was also incredibly prolific This speech, which became a book, was too clear and too uncompromising to even be delivered I read itthan 15 years ago and remember so many quotes caste is a monster, you cannot have political reform, you cannot have economic reform, unless you slay that monster I read Gandhi as a high school...
