About The Book : Modernization in India was initiated by the East India Company through its educational policy. There were three modernist projects in operation in education when the British left the country. Baba Saheb Ambedkar, like his contemporaries M.N. Roy, Nehru, Lohia and others, developed his own vision of people’s education movement. Following his spiritual guru Mahatma Phuley, Ambedkar also asserted that the British education did not help the dalits. He spent major part of his life as a student, scholar, teacher and builder of educational institutions. In this process he elaborated his ideas on modernization, education and development.
