The first discussion will be in response to:
Kancha Illaiah Shepherd argues that the Shudras have failed to produce intellectual leaders to espouse their interests like Ambedkar and Gandhi did for the Dalits and Banias respectively.
In order to overcome the socio-economic and caste-based oppression they face today he argues that the “…[Shudras] will have to produce a massive amount of alternative thought and literature that can displace the current paradigm”.
Did any members of the Constituent Assembly represent Shudra interests?
