also a great narrative and not merely a monolithic kind of democratic participation."

Kashiram, born in 1934 at Ropar in Punjab, was a chamar by caste. After completing his education, he got a reputed government job in Pune. Caste based discrimination in job forced him to leave the job and follow Ambedkar’s ideology for the uplift of Dalits. He sacrificed his family to devote his life for the Bahujan Samaj. He vowed to place the employed Dalits under a single banner, ‘BAMCEF’. He laid stress on education, organization, and agitation. He espoused the cause of Dalits for a separate electorate and fought against injustice, and humiliation meted out to Dalits by the Manuvadies through the weapon of assertion. His five doctrines- struggle, self-respect, independence, equality, and brotherhood became widely popular. BSP came up as a party of the oppressed and repressed people. The Bahujans include SCs, OBCs, STs, and the other minorities in India. BSP strives for social, economic, political equality. 85% Bahujans have power to dismantle 15% of Manuvadies. He plans to implement ‘Hukmshan’, to convert the Bahujan samaj into Hukmshan samaj, and spread Buddhism in India. He continues to be a source of inspiration for Dalits.
