2. Mahatma Gandhi and B. R. Ambedkar had divergent approaches and strategies for the amelioration of the downtrodden Discuss.   

 

  • Both Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. B.R. Ambedkar were visionary leaders, who envisaged amelioration of downtrodden. However they had divergent approaches and strategies for achieving this common goal. On Varna system, they had different views. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar saw Varna system as discriminatory. He opposed it, as it was the root cause of emergence of caste system, according to him. However, Mahatma Gandhi supported Varna system, as he interpreted in terms of ‘Duty’. For him, everyone is performing their duty and there should not be any status attached to it.
  • On caste system, also they had different views. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar wanted to remove caste discrimination by eliminating the caste system itself. He has expressed this view in his book – Annihilation of Caste. For him, discrimination will persist till there is caste system. While Mahatma Gandhi wanted to eliminate caste discrimination, but retain caste system.
  • Their strategies for eliminating caste discrimination also differed considerably. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar prescribed socio-political method for this. He suggested inter-caste marriage, inter-caste dining, education etc. He also favoured economic and political empowerment of downtrodden. However, Mahatma Gandhi prescribed moral spiritual method for this. For him, everyone performs their duties. We must respect everyone as no duty is superior or inferior. He gave the concept of ‘bread labour’. We should focus on changing heart of people to eliminate this discrimination.
  • While, Dr. B.R.Ambedkar adopted a revolutionary approach for annihilating caste system, Mahatma Gandhi adopted a reformative approach towards caste system.
  • So, both Dr. B.R.Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi had same goal of ameliorating downtrodden people they differed considerably in their approaches and strategies.
