Department of Philosophy, Panjab University, Chandigarh was the
Chairperson for the inaugural session. Dr. Rama Arora, Vice Principal,
PGGCG-11, Chandigarh was also present in the session.

Key-Note Address:
In his keynote address, Dr. Ganga Sahay Meena discussed the various
aspects of Dr. B.R.Ambedkars philosophy. He said Dr. B.R. Ambedkars

ideas; writings and outlook could well be characterized as belonging to


that trend of thought called Social Humanism. He developed a socioethical philosophy and steadfastly stood for human dignity and freedom,
socio-economic justice, material prosperity and spiritual discipline.

He showed the enlightening path for Indian society via his ideals of
freedom, equality and fraternity and made India a democratic country.
We can see his vastness of his vision in the 'preamble' to the Constitution of
India. It may be considered as the soul of Constitution. The preamble can
be referred to as the preface which highlights the essence of the entire
Constitution Dr. Meena also criticised Dr. B.R.Ambedkar in regard to
avadance of Indegeinous people of India in Indian constitution.

Chairpersons Address:

Dr. Lallan Singh Baghel, Chairperson, Department of Philosophy, Panjab


University, Chandigarh was the Chairperson for the inaugural session. In his
address entitled Re-conceptualizing

Ambedkars ideas on Identity,

Social justice and Emancipation in the age of neo-liberal globalization:


Raising a few normative concerns. He said that in the recent times there
has been an emergence of a dialogue amongst social scientists and
political philosophers concerning questions of experience and theory, thus
these social scientists and philosophers are raising question of agency ,
who has legitimate right to theorise the experience , is it the one who has
gone

through

the

experience

discrimination/deprivation/disadvantage

of
and

humiliation/rejection/
other

forms

of

discriminations based on caste, gender, class and race, or the one who is
doing theory , does not necessarily need experience, and she/he can do
theory without having the experience of any kind of discrimination in
her/his life.

Cracked Mirror, is a seminal book by Prof. Gopal Guru and Prof. Sunder
Sarrukai, has generated this debate amongst Indian social scientists and
Philosophers. Interestingly, the theme of seminar is on evaluating the
relevance of Ambedkars thought to contemporary Indian society, which
is facing onslaught of neo-liberal globalization on the one hand and
shrinking democratic spaces of secularism and social justice on the other.
Therefore, in this paper an attempt would be made to understand the
critical map of Ambedkars modernity and its promise to make Indian
society just and egalitarian in political outlook.

There are two broad contours of argument to be made in the paper , the
first deals with question of identity discourse in the light of Ambedkars
ideas on caste annihilation and its theoretical responses to address the
multilayered

political aspirations of social justice within the realms of

Indian substantive democracy and to delineate, how far Dalit discourse


has been to capture the nuanced meanings of emancipation from
Ambedkars perspective, or Dalit discourse has only created the markers
of Identity and recognition , but it has yet to address concerns of
distributive justice . Another part of argument concerns with question of
neo-liberal globalization and its bearing on political efficacy of caste
,gender and class in making of Indian democracy from perspective of
marginal citizen. The last and conclusive part of paper engages with
question of theory and experience of caste and other kinds of
deprivations. Its reiterating again to understand the legitimacy of
experience and agency , can we really move beyond Dalit discourses on
the one hand and derivative discourses on the other to develop an
authentic philosophical and cognitive map to understand contemporary
relevance of Ambedkar and his world of emancipation.

In the end of this session, an interaction was held

by Dr. Lallan Singh

Baghel with the participants and several queries and questions arises and
discussed by the resource persons and participants. Vote of thanks
delivered by Ms. Shashi Joshi, Convener of the programme.
