'Reading Ambedkar bridged the gap between what most Indians are schooled to believe and the reality we experience every day of our lives.' Arundhati Roy The Annihilation of Caste is one of the most important - and still the most controversial - works of Indian political writing. Completed in 1936, the book is an audacious denunciation of Hinduism and the caste system that infuriated Gandhi, yet has remained a rallying cry for 60 years. In her lengthy introduction Roy looks at how caste has continued through modern Indian history, and why the words of Ambedkar are necessary today more than ever. In startling and urgent writing she shows that caste is the most urgent question if India is to become a world-leading nation.
