Dr Ambedkar and R D Karve: Real Advocacy for Social Justice

Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar was a well-known lawyer and social reformer in India who devoted his life to fighting for the rights of communities, humanity, and bias. We all know him as the "Father of the Indian Constitution." One of the most significant cases he fought was on behalf of Raghunath Dhondo Karve, a social reformer and mathematician from Maharashtra. Karve faced legal challenges for publishing a magazine that promoted sex and health education, a subject that was still considered taboo in India.
