Overview: Annihilation of Caste: The Annotated Critical Edition

Annihilation of Caste is actually the undelivered speech of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. The speech was meant to be delivered during the annual conference of Jat-Pat Todak Mandal, a Hindu reformist group. But, the speech was cancelled after the organization withdrew Ambedkar's invitation because they found the speech to be "unbearable". Mahatma Gandhi did not accept the organization's decision and said "The committee appears to have deprived the public an opportunity of listening to the original views of a man who has carved himself a unique position in the society". Later Ambedkar published 1500 copies of his undelivered speech as a book named Annihilation of Caste.

This version of the book is an annotated revision of B.R Ambedkar's "Annihilation of Caste" by Arundhati Roy. She begins the book with the case of Doctor and Saint to look at the ways in which caste plays a role in the society. She states that the selection of a priest should be based on his education and not his caste background.

Various other interesting facts about our nation's leaders are shared in this book. Mahatma Gandhi's earlier days in South Africa are portrayed. In this book, Dr. Ambedkar mentions that inter-caste dining and inter-caste marriages are not sufficient to wipe out the caste system, but "the real method of breaking up the caste system was to destroy the religious notions upon which caste is founded".
