Abstract
To realise Ambedkar's vision of a 'new India' devoid of caste hierarchies and untouchability, Shudras need to realise how their fellow productive Shudras, the Dalits, were separated from them and that, through this division, the Dwijas' control over both became tighter.
  
Notes
"In virtually all ancient histories, certain tribes covered their bodies with leather. The Adivasi God Shiva, who was later included in the Brahmin-Kshatriya pantheon, always, though semi-naked, appears clad in leather with a snake around his neck."

 

Dalits-Shudras: cut from same cloth but no more solidarity.? At least that's how I see it...Dalits-Shudras: cut from same cloth but no more solidarity.... See also Kancha Iliah's view on the Adivasi and the usurpation of their symbols by Brahmincal Hinduism wihtout their actual bodies/lives
