Top 7 android apps on Dr. Ambedkar, Dalits and Indian Buddhists


Few days back, I write on 15 books that every Dalits must read, in this post I will be listing top 7 android apps on Dr. Ambedkar, Dalits and Indian Buddhists that every Dalit-Bahujans should have on mobile!

Rise of technology has given us great opportunities to come closer to each other and fight together against the injustice and fight against the crimes committed against Dalits. I have noticed many young people very much active on social networking sites but it saddens me sometimes to see that they are busy in spreading and posting things which are not related to our mission or things which have no meaning!

l b app

As, whatsapp, facebook etc on mobiles have become popular, many android apps on Dr. Ambedkar, Dalits and Buddhism have come up. Here is the list of android apps, what I think are worth trying.

  1. Dr. B.R.Ambedkar  – You can get Quotes of Dr. Ambedkar, 22 vows, important events in life of Dr. Ambedkar, and few books written by Dr. Ambedkar
  2. Amritbani Satguru Ravidass Ji – Amritbani Guru Ravidass Ji is a holy book of the Ravidassia Religion. It is in Punjabi and it has teachings (Gurbani) of Shri Guru Ravidas Ji.
  3. Buddha’s Life Changing Lessons – It has only 20 pictures with messages of Buddha, There are 20 lessons to changing your mind, your mood and your habits that will, in turn, change your entire life. I like the app because pictures are just wow!
  4. Lord Buddha TV – Live streaming of Lord Buddha TV channel.
  5. Bahujan Samaj Party – Information about Bahujan Samaj Party.
  6. Dr. Ambedkar Quiz – App has good questions, though I struggled to find out the correct answers in the app as app doesn’t show answers!
  7. Ambedkar and Buddhism – It is a scanned book by Sangharakshita and worth reading.

There are many other apps on Dr. Ambedkar and Buddhism and there are some apps where you can read books written by Babasaheb also. I still believe there is need of more mobile apps as I couldn’t find any app on Saheb Kanshi Ram, Guru Kabir, Guru Tukaram etc, many more apps can be created on all these Dalit-Bahujans ideals.

Do you have any favorite app related to Dalit-Bahujans? Let us know in the comments.

Here is another champion from our community, who has achieved this without having much resources. Please help him if possible. In our community, we have many gems and we just need to find and inspire them to even do much better and help them to be successful in life.

If we can do inspire and help even few students, it will be great! To keep all this in mind I have also developed a community  which can be used to help students from our community.

9th June in Dalit History – Death anniversary of Birsa Munda – The Dharti Aba


9th June – Amar Shahid Tribal Birsa Munda Shahid Day

Birsa Munda, the Dharti Aba (Father of earth)

Though there is still no unanimous opinion of Birth and Death regarding date and Place of Birsa Munda, yet Govt. has accepted that Birsa was born on 15 Nov 1875 in Ulihatu and died on 9 June 1900 in Ranchi central jail. Birsa Munda was son of Sugna Munda. Sugna Munda has three sons namely- Kowa Munda , Birsa Munda and Bhanu Munda. Sugna Munda, father of Birsa Munda, had two more brothers namely- Bhanu Munda and Pasna Munda.

Early Childhood

Birsa was born in year 1875, Thursday was the day of his birth, and he was named after the day of his birth according to the Munda custom. Ulihatu was the birth-place of Sugna Munda, father of Birsa. The claim of Ulihatu rests on Birsa’ s elder brother Komta Munda living in the village and on his house, which still exist in a dilapidated condition. Birsa’s father, mother and younger brother, Pasna Munda, left Ulihatu and proceeded to Kurumbda near Birbanki in search of employment as laborers or crop-sharers (sajhadar) or riots. At Kurmbda Birsa’s elder brother, Komta, and his sister, Daskir, were born. From there the family moved to Bamba where Birsa’s elder sister Champa was born followed by himself Birsa was born in a house built of bamboo strips without a mud plaster or even a secure roof; a crop-sharer or riot could not boast of a better house. Folk songs relating to his birth seek to embroider the event with the Biblical parallels: a comet or a flag-star moved across the sky from Chalked to Ulihatu, a flag flew on a mountain top. Soon after Birsa’s birth, his family left Bamba. A quarrel between the Mundas and their riots in which his father was involved as a witness was the immediate reason for proceeding to Chalkad, Sugana’s mother’s village, where Bir Singh, the Munda of the village, granted them refuge. Folklore refers to his rolling and playing in sand and dust with his friends, and his growing up strong and handsome in looks he grazed sheep in the forest of Bohonda. When the grew up, he shared an interest in playing the flute, in which he became adept, and so movingly did he play that all living beings came out to listen to him. He went round with the tuila, the one-stringed instrument made from the pumpkin, in the hand and the flute strung to his waist. Exciting moments of his childhood were spent on the Akhara (the village dancing ground). One of his contemporaries who went out with him, however, heard him speak of strange things. Driven by poverty Birsa was taken to Ayubhatu, his maternal uncle’s village. Komta Munda, his eldest brother, who was ten years of age, went to Kundi Bartoli, entered the service of a “Munda, married and lived there for eight years, and then joined his father and younger brother at Chalkad. At Ayubhatu Birsa lived for two years. He went to school at Salga, run by one Jaipal Nag. He accompanied his mother’s younger sister, Joni, who was fond of horn. She was married, to Khatanga, her new home. He was found no good for the job and was beaten by the owner of field. He left the village and went to his brother at Kundi Bartoli, and stayed with him for sometime. From there he probably went to the German mission at Burju where he passed the lower primary examination.Birsa Munda as known amongst tribal, waged a massive war against the British rule in mid 1890’s. After the (suppression of the first rising, in decisive war against the British). After a series of concerted attacks for nearly two years on the places loyal to the British, the Munda warriors started congregating on “Dombari Hill” at village “Sail, Rakab” (Nearly 20 Km from the Ranchi-Jamshedpur Highway), on the call of Birsa. Documents revel that the Munda’s, adopting Guerilla warfare, attack the British in Ranchi and Khunti. Several persons, mostly police men were killed and nearly 100 Buildings were set on fire. It raised over this ” UlguIan ” (revolt), the, then commissioner Mr. A fobes and Deputy Commissioner Mr. H.C.Stratified, rushed to Kunti with two company of army to crush the mass struggle (UlguIan) of” Abua Disun” ( Self rule).The revolt had rocked the British administration to the extent that the commissioner declared a reward of Rs. 500 for the arrest of Birsa. Subsequently British forces attacked heavily on Munda warriors congregated at “Dumbari Hill” and made indiscriminate firing like that of “Jaliyan Wala Bagh” and killed several hundred people. The whole hill was littered with dead human corpses. After Brutal slaughter the dead bodies were thrown into the deep gorges and ravines of the hill. Many of the wounded were buried alive. According to editorial published on March 25, 1900, the statesman, put the toll at 400. However, the then administration suppressed the fact and claimed that only eleven persons were killed and nine injured in two firings on January 7 and January 9, 1900. Fear and panic show spread over the area that “Dombari” was named by Munda’s as “Topped Buru” -mound of dead.

What Brahmin Merit? In Punjab, with 98.92% marks, a Dalit girl secured 2nd position in class 10th!


Few weeks back, I wrote on What Merit? In Punjab, Class 12th, Dalit Girl got 7th position and a Muslim Girl became topper. Now, here is another on the same lines, Punjab School Education Board announced results for class 10th few days back. This time also, a Dalit girl named Nancy Bhadiyar, a student of Government Senior Secondary School, Ghagwal, Hoshiarpur, secured second position with 98.92 per cent marks. It is a remarkable achievement and I congratulate her on her success.

When toppers are from Dalit-Bahujan communities, what merit so called Brahmins and upper castes talk about all the time? Few years back, V. T. Rajshekar had said,

“all ruling classes built” a theory by suited to their needs and try to give a ‘scientific’ backing to it. Merit and efficiency is a pure Aryan invention, aimed at maintaining their monopoly”.

What Merit? In Punjab, Class 12th, Dalit Girl got 7th position and a Muslim Girl became topper

Also, she is topper in Jalandhar. (Merit list is made combined of different streams such as Commerce, Non-Medical, Medical etc) Namrata achieved this position despite having poor family background and without any coaching. Read more about her from Lokleader [in Punjabi] and here.

The History of Reservation in India


Caste Based Reservation in India started in 2nd Century BC. In Manusmriti – the law book of Brahmins all the laws were based on Caste and no Merit was ever considered. It divided people into High and Low Castes on the basis of their birth and not on the basis of Merit. Wealth, Political power, Spiritual leadership, Education, Ownership of Land, Trade and all lucrative aspects were reserved purely to the higher castes.
