“The value of a man was reduced to his immediate identity and nearest possibility. To a vote. To a number. To a thing. Never was a man treated as a mind. As a glorious thing made up of stardust. In every field, in studies, in streets, in politics, and in dying and living.” — Dr Rohith Vemula

Our work has been inspired by the cultural movement and protest cultures of the Ambedkarite movement, and the inception of this course is a result of so many such stories of resistance and love from the movement.
