An engaging discussion on Social Justice in the Neo-Liberal Era

"On the 26th of January, we are going to enter into a life of contradictions. In politics, we will have equality and in social and economic life we will have inequality. In politics we will be recognising the principle of one man, one vote; and one vote, one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, by reason of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man, one value. How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social and economic life? We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment or else those who suffer from inequality will blow up the structure of political democracy which this Assembly has so laboriously built up."
- Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar
(speech before the Constituent Assembly before the Constitution of India came into effect, 1950)
