The international MenteClara Foundation and the Department of History of the Savitribai Phule Pune University (India) Call for Papers for the Contest:

 

Best research article on the documentary film:

REVOLUTION: From the books to Babasaheb

 

by Vaibhav Kamble, produced by Midway Films.

 

The article for contest should relate the essence of the writings, works and speeches of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (Babasaheb) to the aforementioned documentary and bring to the fore the ideas of Babasaheb that even today could be innovative in relation to the concept of castes and reincarnation, which enslaves the oppressed as regards their will and desire for identity and evolution. The article should also touch upon the egalitarian spirit of Babasaheb in his writings, especially in his posthumous work "The Buddha and His Dhamma" as has been highlighted in the discourses and works of the current politicians and political authors.

 

Advanced students of Savitribai Phule Pune University may participate in the contest strictly under the guidance of a qualified tutor.

It is to be emphasized that submission of article is by no way associated with a Degree.
