The Saint and the Doctor!

The racist and casteist Gandhi turned into some larger than life figure only because he had his fan base in the dominant caste group.
He has now been thrown into the dustbin of history become the same dominant caste no longer needs him.
His greatness was not because of his merit but because of the type of followers he had.
Those who live by the dominant caste die by the dominant castes.

Ambedkar, on the other hand, was hated then and is hated now by the dominant castes.
But today that Doctor is larger than any mahatma or saint.
So vast is his shadow that the dominant castes from every spectrum of politics wish to embrace him.
He became the greatest figure in modern Indian history not because he lived at the mercy of dominant castes but because he had superior intellect and merit.
