The Indus Valley Civilization that flourished in India more than 4500 years ago was the creation of the aboriginal inhabitants who were later clubbed as Shudras. The Aryans treacherously destroyed their culture and tradition and established their supremacy. To reestablish the Bahujan culture Buddha stressed three messages, Buddham Sharanam Gachami, Dhammam Sharanam Gachami and Sangham Sharanam Gachami. Critical of the priest culture Ambedkar did not adhere to Buddha’s third message. He however, modified his other two messages in the modern context as educate, agitate and organize, in similar order. But his order was distorted by some people as educate, organize and agitate, which was refuted by him. For him education and agitation go hand in hand, which smoothens the process of organizing. The writer equates Marxism in India with Ambedkarism. It is the intellectual revolution of the original inhabitants of India. One Ambedkarite is equivalent to 10,000 graduates. There is no power equivalent to the Dalit power in this world. The writer deals explicitly with the entire gamut of Ambedkarism.
