Ethics in Ambedkar’s Critique of Gandhi

This article is a revised version of the fi rst Sabarmati lecture titled “Dr Ambedkar’s Gandhi: A Step Forward” delivered at Ahmedabad on 26 November 2016. I have since changed the title in lieu of Ramchandra Guha’s essay titled “Gandhi’s Ambedkar” (2001) while retaining the essence that is essential to the ethical bond between Gandhi and Ambedkar.

The author thanks Tridip Suhrud, Director and Chief Editor, Sabarmati Ashram Preservation and Memorial Trust, Ahmedabad for permitting the publication of this article, and Gopal Krishna Gandhi and Gurpreet Mahajan for their inputs in writing it.
