Overview

Why do I have to sit separately in a corner of the classroom? Why can't I drink water from the tap like other children? Why do the teachers never touch my books?The 'whys' shout louder in little Bhim's head as he grows up, trailed constantly by the monster of untouchability.

They catapult him into a lifetime of struggle for equality. They shape the remarkable ideas that are the cornerstone of the Constitution of India.

The Boy Who Asked Why follows the life of an extraordinary man, 'Babasaheb' Bhimrao Ambedkar, who energized the struggle against caste prejudice. His fiery speeches and writings urged Dalits to protest against the inhumanity they suffered, and continue to suffer. This straightforward telling, visualized with quirky imagination, brings to children a man whose story will raise their awareness of discrimination -- leading them, perhaps, to ask their own whys.
