Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, as the greatest human liberator of the modern times, discovered a way to emancipate the masses and reconstruct the world. He too, gave importance to the method of achieving emancipation and the core philosophy of his method can be said to be Dhamma, as taught by the Buddha. However, witnessing the confusions emerging in these modern times, he was skeptical of people getting wooed by the philosophy of Karl Marx. So in order to ensure that he addressed these confusions, he not only made clear intellectual comparisons between the philosophies of the Buddha and Karl Marx, but also took a firm position by accepting Buddha’s Dhamma as the saviour of the humanity. His act of Dhamma-Deeksha is the practical fruition of these very ideas.
At this time, on a global, national or even individual level, there is an intensity in the manifestation of suffering and injustice. It is not enough to understand that we are suffering but necessary to address it and end it by righteous ways of emancipation. The world, as much as any individual, needs Ambedkarite ideas and methods for its reconstruction. And this can only be possible if the Ambedkarites are conscious of its principles.
The real protagonist is Sengeni who spearheads the politics of the title by her relentless struggle and refusal to bow to threats and bribes, portrayed brilliantly in her meeting with the DGP. It is emblematic of the force that conviction in justice can have. The portrayal of power in this movie is successful because it shows how the system can be incredibly strong when layered with the undercurrents of belief and faith. This is almost a slap on the face of those anarchists who believe in the system as being inherently flawed or unjust.
