Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation) ISSN: 2278-2168

Special Issue on “Marx and Ambedkar for Indian Social Change”

Year 09, No. 01 (April, 2018)

Respected Faculty/Scholar/Professor,

Milestone Education Review (The Journal of Ideas on Educational & Social Transformation) is an online peer-reviewed bi-annual journal of Milestone Education Society (Regd.) Pehowa (Kurukshetra). For us education refers to any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual. The role of education must be as an instrument of social change and social transformation. Social transformation refers to large scale of social change as in cultural reforms and transformations. The first occurs with the individual, the second with the social system. This journal offers an opportunity to all academicians including educationist, social-scientists, philosophers and social activities to share their views. Each issue contains about 100 pages.

About Present Issue:

Karl Marx, in full Karl Heinrich Marx (born May 5, 1818, Trier and died March 14, 1883, London, England) was a philosopher, revolutionary, sociologist, historian, and economist. He published The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, anticapitalist works that form the basis of Marxism. It was Capital’s 150th anniversary in autumn 2017, the 170th anniversary of the Communist Manifesto will be in February 2018, and it would have been Karl Marx’s 200th birthday in May 2018. The Communist Party of the Philippines calls on all Filipino workers to start a year-long commemoration and celebration of Marx’s 200th birthday on May 5, 2018. The whole revolutionary movement must salute Karl Marx’ and Marxism’s great role in history and in the continuing world struggle for the emancipation of the proletariat and the entire humanity. This celebration is of great relevance to the working class, from politics to philosophy to academics as Karl Marx made a lasting imprint on the face of history. The Centre has also an intention to commemorate the 200 years of Karl Marx by various activities including essay competition, seminar, special issues and books on this great thinker.

Karl Marx was the first thinker to draw sharp attention to the highly deleterious impact of caste on Indian society and its causal link with the relations of production. In his famous essay on “The Future Results of British Rule in India” Karl Marx characterized the Indian castes as “the most decisive impediment to India’s progress and power”. Marx clearly and causally connected the archaic social formation of caste in India with the relations of production. It followed logically that the abolition of the caste hierarchy and the oppression and exploitation of the ‘lower’ castes could not be separated from the Marxian form of class struggle. The adivasis or indigenous people of ancient India suffered more or less the same socioeconomic disabilities as the atisudras, and were virtually indistinguishable from the latter with regard to their status in relation to the socioeconomic structure of chaturvarnya. They were also both geographically isolated and socially marginalized, and relegated to the bottom of the socioeconomic pyramid. There is abundant evidence in the dharmasastras and Sanskrit literature to show that these indigenous people were also treated as untouchables. Ideologically, one can place Ambedkar in the leftist traditions, though not in its traditional forms. He was one of the few people in modern India who had developed a home-grown genre of Marxism and for Ambedkar this stood in comparison with the ideology of Buddhism – a peculiar, yet profound blend that is characteristic of an Indian philosopher. In his essay titled “Buddha or Karl Marx”, Ambedkar compared the common ideals of Buddha and Marx and submitted an ultimate analysis that socialism can only be sustained if it walks on the path lay out by the Buddha. According to him, Buddhism was “an ultimate aid to sustain Communism when force is withdrawn” and so he criticised Lenin because he failed to deliver ‘liberty and fraternity’ in the pursuit of equality. He declared that: “Equality will be of no value without fraternity or liberty. It seems that the three can coexist only if one follows the way of the Buddha. Communism can give one but not all.” It is indeed the contribution of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar that the commitment towards liberty, fraternity and equality through the means of non-violence and democracy, has become a central characteristic of our constitution. He categorically stated while addressing the constituent assembly (November 25, 1949) that, “Political democracy cannot last unless there lies at the base of it social democracy, which means, a way of life which recognize liberty, equality and fraternity as the principles of life.” In this sense there will be a great need of study both revolutionary figures to study on the same platform and to their relevance in the Indian social change. This is a special call for papers for Milestone Education Review, Year 09, No. 01 (April, 2018) issue.

Book Description

 March 26, 2014
The philosophy of dalit liberation is a critical issue in the present time in Indian society. Since there are lots of socalled social thinkers and writers who themselves designated as Ambedkarite and propagated their own ideology rather than the philosophy of Dr. B.R.Ambedkar, a true revolutionary and a man of wisdom. I read a story on facebook at Karl Marx (Group) about African children. It touched my heart as our Indians didn’t understand it since 8000 years and continue with discrimination with our fellow beings. Although our great thinkers or socalled great culture, teaching universal brotherhood since ancient times. But it is a bitter truth that we are far from the meaning of INDIANNESS and continue with our sick mentality of socalled great Hindu Order.
This short story can be a good lesson for Dalits and Women, if they will be organised for their struggle, there will be no any social evil that can harm their happiness and freedom. There is a need to get organised for a proper goal. 

Just read the story and think over it: An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each other’s hands and …ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ”UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?” ‘ UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: “I am because we are”.
In India, the problem of casteism is a bigger social issue rather than other issues which we are discussing in present academic and social front. There are several policies of the Govt. and amendments in the constitution of India to eradicate this problem. But the reality is more critical than the Government Reports highlight. There is need to work on the social front through real efforts to change the present condition of Indian society. It is the right time to become more conscious about the need of a positive ideology and its future effects.
In this short title, we are presenting three essays on the philosophy of Dr. B.R.Ambedkar which discussed his ideas on casteism, social change, education, social justice, education, women issues, and democracy etc. These essays are the revised version of papers presented in the National Seminar on “Ambedkarite Quest on Egalitarian Revolution in India” (26th & 27th November, 2013) organized by the Centre for Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Studies, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Haryana.
In the end of this book I included a chronology of life events of Dr. B.R.Ambedkar as an annexure. Hope this book will be helpful to understand his intention of social revolution and motivate us to be conscious about our duties and work for the higher goal rather than follow personal pleasure. I am thankful to all the members of Milestone Education Society (Regd.), Pehowa (Kurukshetra) for their continuous effort to propagate Dr. B.R.Ambedkar’s ideology as well as their positive efforts to provide quality and fruitful education to the weaker section of society.
