      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    In the last couple of decades, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar has been idolized by the people of the nation in a way that no other leader has been. Many political parties have managed to get an upper hand by just using his name. He even has an old cartoon of him that has been causing political parties to run for cover, and asking for the offensive cartoon to be erased.

    Summary of the Book

    Worshipping False Gods is a book authored by Arun Shourie in which he uses his knowledge on the subject to take a critical look at the legend that Ambedkar had become. His keen eye for detail allows him to go deep into the archives and ask questions that seem relevant like whether Ambedkar coordinated his opposition to the freedom struggle with the British, how his approach to social change is in contrast to that of Gandhi’s, and whether the Constitution rose from him or did it grow as a dynamic living organism. The book goes into the myths on which dialog is built in India today.

    About Arun Shourie

    Arun Shourie is an Indian author, journalist and politician. He has previously worked as an economist with the World Bank. Other designations of his have been: consultant to Planning Commission of India, editor of the Indian Express and The Times of India, and a minister in the Government of India. In 1982, Arun Shourie was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award.

    Prejudiced!!

    My only reason to give this book 5 stars is to attract attention of all the prejudiced minds who somehow managed to banish ambedkar and his work.People say all kinds of shits about great personalites be it Ambedkar,Gandhi,Nehru etc without objectively verifying the facts via credible Sources.

    I myself had so many prejudiced notions about gandhi,ambedkar and what not because of all the crap that flows in social media via facebook,twitter,whatsapp etc. you can find all kinds of stories planted...

    Ambedkar has never been choice of majority, a layer deeper than construct of Nationalism.

    This book is enlightenment to the core. A fair and brutal analysis of pre & post independent india. Since childhood we have been taught about leaders who fought for independence , but never been made aware of any who was against it. It's a must read for younger generation to understand the constructs and indoctrination of "Nationalism". This book will clarify the reasons why political / nationalist parties are compelled to show some respect to the drafter of our construction , Dr BR Ambedkar,...

    worshipping false gods

    Very exhaustive, well documented with painstaking thoroughness. But becomes repetitive. Had this been shortened to about half of the length would have been much more readable. I suugest to the author to publish bridged versions and in future to avoid repetitions. This particular book contains huge amounts of transcripts of inconsequential communications between governors, governor general and Secretary for India. Would have been better if authors words were more than others. I had to literall...

    A pathetic pitiful hatchet job

    A moment of silence for the trees who died in producing this asinine lauhable slop .

    Everything in this book is a hit job on one of Indias greatest intellectuals Dr Ambedkar . The Books by Narendra Jadhav and Dr Shahare effectively debunk the smears in this book

    The point of solace for me : I was able to get rid off this book by selling it off .
