Arundhati Roy looks at how caste has existed through modern Indian history.

B. R. Ambedkar's Annihilation of Caste is one of the most important – and most controversial – works of Indian political writing. Completed in 1936, the book is a denunciation of Hinduism and the caste system.

Arundhati Roy's extensive introduction to Annihilation of Caste presents a thought-provoking depiction of the caste system and looks at why Ambedkar's words are necessary in today’s society. Throughout her writing, she shows that caste is one of India’s most urgent issues.

The event will take place in the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall
