Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was one of the very important political thinkers and social revolutionaries that modern India has produced. If we try to look into Dr. Ambedkar s sociological approach to abolish untouchability we find that he picked up the mahad water tank issue, temple entry, opening of educational intuitions for Dalit and Backward castes as entry points to attack Brahmanical hegemonic theory for exploitation, control and manipulation of the Dalit masses in order to annihilate caste.
