Annihilation of Caste
In 1936, a Hindu reformist group invited B.R. Ambedkar to deliver their presidential address and chart a path to end the caste system. When he argued that the immorality of caste was sustained by the Vedas and Shastras, and without ‘dynamiting’ them there could be no reform, they withdrew their invitation. Ambedkar published the text on his own. Listen to this audiobook to hear Ambedkar’s searing takedown of the caste system.
Why Am I An Atheist
We sing praises of Bhagat Singh’s courage and his devotion to his motherland. What we don’t often get to hear about the freedom fighter’s belief that there is no afterlife of any kind. Why I Am an Atheist is an essay written by Indian revolutionary Bhagat Singh in 1930 in Lahore Central Jail. The essay was a reply to his religious friends who thought Bhagat Singh became an atheist because of his vanity. Tune into this book and understand why Bhagat Singh was an atheist.
