The booklet attempts to underpin the regressive role of Hindu scriptures especially Manu-smriti in denying shudras socio-cultural position within Hindu social system. Gandhism, so eulogized for its concern for untouchables was infect a well-knit design to allure Hindus from conversion to Islam and Christianity. Gandhian ideals, enshrined in the constitution have failed to yield desired results as system is still in the hands of Brahmanical forces . The days of converting to either Islam or Chistianity are no more but Buddhism still retains its Promethean parameters for them. This will be liberative of their inferiority complex and psychological slavery with which they have been festered through ages. Need of the hour is to make congenial and progressive environment for them .Buddhism will provide a new platform for their upliftment and instil dignity and self-respect in them. Only Dhamma has the emanicipatory potential by which, shudras will get rid of their hardships and pain.
