History & Politics

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar contributed extensively to ameliorate various economic problems of the country. Further, what is creditable is that most of his writings relate to the pre-independence period and reflect not only unique freshness in terms of his ideas but also his deep insights into the problems. He approached and examined the economic issues with such foresight that his analysis and treatment of some of them is relevant even today

In 1936 itself he referred to the problem of over-population and identified it as a major cause of poverty in India. He was probably the only political leader in India, who had strongly advocated the measures for birth control.

The book focuses on the vision of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar to resolve the population problem, his views on birth-control measures and their relevance in modern age. Admirers of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, researchers and students of population studies may find the book useful.
