Navayana and Lamakaan present
Public lecture: “Cruelty, Courage, and the Constitution: Ambedkar, Gandhi, and the Liberalisms of our Fear” Kumar will inscribe the question of political courage and its antithesis—political cruelty—at the heart of the relation between Ambedkar and Gandhi. Ambedkar returns to us today, he argues, because his constitutionalism offers a searing insight into the complexity of human fear that liberalisms of our time have decisively failed to examine.
