Bhimrao Ambedkar: The Boy Who Asked Why/Bhimrao Ambedkar: Endhukondu Ennu Chodichu Kutty (Malayalam)

Author : Sowmya Rajendran
Illustrator : Satwik Gade

Why do I have to sit separately in a corner of the classroom? Why can't I drink water from the tap like other children? Why do the teachers never touch my books? The ‘whys' shout louder in little Bhim's head as he grows up, trailed constantly by the monster of untouchability. They catapult him into a lifetime of struggle for equality. And they shape the remarkable ideas that are the cornerstone of the Indian Constitution, which he drafted as India's first Law Minister. With quirky imaginative visuals, this is the story of an extraordinary icon who will inspire children to ask their own whys. 2016: Excellence in Children's Book Production, Darsana National Awards 2015: Honour Book, South Asia Book Awards, USA

Offers hope!

Despite every attempt of our system to throw away this brilliant, sensitive young boy’s life, the book describes how Dr Ambedkar triumphed and led millions of his countrymen to a better life, but also, as architect of the country’s constitution, institutionalized that hope. Gade’s carefully imagined illustrations are an integral part of the book. The people look like people, and the artful use of scale and perspective reflect how a child might see a situation.
