"Ambedkar is the Father of the Constitution of India. Constitutions are the primary law of the countries. That is so in any nation. Constitution is the foundation on which every institution and all laws are based. The new ones must spring, and all other institutions and laws, the old and existing ones must be in conformity with, to survive, exist and be applicable and enforceable. For many with some ideological reservations or caste considerations, rise some mental blocks to concede this in public. Assuming he is not the Father of the Indian Constitution, he cannot be brushed aside, as the Constitution of India is intrinsically associated with him, he was for years involved whole time with it, during its framing. So he is the framer of the Constitution of India? Perhaps not. The book deals with Ambedkar's views on Indian code of laws." (jacket)
