The Ambedkar Memorial celebrations on the 5th of August (Bandh willing!) will feature a number of events related to Bhimrao Ambedkar. Professor Sukhadeo Thorat, Chairman ICSSR and ex Chairman of the University Grants Commission will deliver a lecture on Socially Inclusive Growth in India at 2:00 pm in the DST Auditorium on the HCU campus.
Earlier that day, we will have an art exhibition (at 10:00 am) and a symposium, Folklore: Towards altering the Margins with speakers such as G Shyamala (Anveshi), G Aloysiyus and Raghavan Payannad. And after the talk by Prof. Thorat, there will be the release of Bhimayana by S Anand of Navayana, with others such as Fawad Tamkanat, Gaddar, Durgabai Vyam, and a Dappu performance by Lelle Suresh and troupe.
