The highlight of the day was unveiling of Dr Ambedkar’s portrait at Gray’s Inn where he was called to the bar in 1922 and completed his Bar at-Law degree. Gray’s Inn is a premier institution of law in the World where Dr Ambedkar is honored by displaying unveiling his portrait. This project was commissioned by the Government of India and the artist, Hazel Morgan was entrusted to make the portrait.

We have received many letters asking us the meaning of the word Dalit. The same question is also being put to us at meetings. What gives us great pleasure and pride is this word has become popular all over India and abroad in such a short time giving expression to the anger of the Untouchables. And gathering so much of charisma.
We are also happy to note that not only the militant Dalits but even some Hindu press have stopped using the hated word, Harijan, a Gandhian humbug, and switched on to Dalit. This awareness of their identity is itself a big step forward in the Dalit liberation struggle. The word Dalit symbolises the mood of this explosive commodity and connotes and denotes their protest. Hence the switch- over to this new word is itself a great improvement indicating a big leap in the search for their roots. Only three years back people barring those in the Hindi belt did not even know this word. It was not in their vocabulary. But as soon as they came to know this word and discovered its intrinsic value, its magic, its melody, they readily adopted it. Literally embraced it. “National” newspapers like the Times of India are using this word even in headlines. Even the Malayala Manorama, the largest circulated language daily of Kerala, has started using this word heeding our appeal. We call upon all our Dalit and other persecuted minority comrades to use only this word and persuade others to popularise it. If the English and language dailies start using the word, Dalit, in headlines it will soon catch up. Therefore, Dalits and their co-sufferers must go to newspaper offices and meet journalists and prevail upon them to use Dalit instead of Harijan or SC/STs. We will suggest the Oxford, Webster, Cambridge and other dictionaries to include it.

5 February 1988: Massive counter demonstration of Dalits to pin the Government of Maharashtra to publish the “Riddles in Hinduism”
With the death centenary of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule and the birth centenary ofDr. Babasaheb Ambedkar due in 1990-91, the state government of Maharashtra had begun the project of publishing the complete works of both. As part of this project, it brought out a volume that contained Dr. Ambedkar’s hitherto unpublished work, “Riddles in Hinduism” (volume no 4) in October 1987. In this, he made a rational and dispassionate analysis, from the standpoint of social justice, of the life stories of Hindu deities. The work also had a section (appendix 1) which was called “the Riddle of Ram and Krishna”.

The Shiv Sena party in Mahatashtra pounced on “Riddles”, branded it as an intolerable insult to Hindu religion and Hindu deities and demanded a ban on its publication. It held a huge demonstration in Mumbai on 15 January 1988 and began disturbances all over the state, abusing Dr. Ambedkar and widening caste-communal divisions. It was only after an even larger counter-demonstration by all Dalit groups that was led by Prakash Ambedkar (grandson of Dr. Amebdkar) on 5 February 1988 that the publication could further proceed with a note from Government that it does not concur with the views expressed in the chapter on Ram and Krishna.
It is worthy to note that as per Nanak Chand Rattu, Dr. Ambedkar had planned to write a separate book on “Riddle of Rama and Krishna”. Compilation of material under different headings in the form of rough notes, written in small note books and loose sheets, some typed extracts, markings and references put together in file covers and paper bags, under different headings, indicated his ambition to bring out the following books one after the other – (i) Buddha and His Dhamma, (ii) Buddha and Karl Marx, (iii) Revolution and Counter-revolution in Ancient India, (iv) Riddles in Hinduism, (v) Riddle of Rama and Krishna, (vi) Riddle of Trimurti and (vii) Riddle of Woman.

नीच समझ जिस भीम को, देते सब दुत्कार |
कलम उठाकर हाथ में, कर गये देश सुधार ||१||
जांत-पांत के भेद की, तोड़ी हर दीवार |
बहुजन हित में भीम ने, वार दिया परिवार ||२||
पानी-मंदिर दूर थे, मुश्किल कलम-किताब |
दांव लगा जब भीम का, कर दिया सब हिसाब ||३||
ऊँचेपन की होड़ में, नीचे झुका पहाड़ |
कदम पड़े जब भीम के, हो गया शुद्ध महाड़ ||४||
पारस ढूँढें भीम को, आँख बहाये नीर |
पढे-लिखे हैं सैंकड़ों, नही भीम सा वीर ||५||
दिल में सब जिंदा रखे, बुद्ध, फुले व कबीर |
छोड़ वेद-पुराण सभी, भीम हुए बलवीर ||६||
झूठ और पाखंड की, सहमी हर दुकान |
भेदभाव से जो परे, रच दिया संविधान ||७||
रोटी-कपड़ा-मकान का, दिया हमें अधिकार |
पूज रहे तुम देवता, भूल गये उपकार ||८||
भेदभाव का विष दिया, सबने कहा अछूत |
जग सारा ये मानता, था वो सच्चा सपूत ||९||
भीम तब दिन-रात जगे, दिया मान-सम्मान |
लाज रखो अब मिशन की,अर्पित कर दो जान ||१०||
विद्यार्थी चाहे, तो इन दोहों का विद्यालय कार्यक्रमों में सस्वर वाचन कर सकते हैं |
