India is a bold adventure of ideas. Marking a radical departure from the “graded inequalities” of the past, India’s Constitution freed millions of Indians from the shackles of caste and religious dogma. The underlying principle of the constitutional idea of India is that everyone deserves equal access to the promise of this nation. That no one gets left behind. This forms the underlying basis of who we are, and who we can be.
Over the past 70 years, the architects of modern India have consistently strived to guarantee fullness of life for all by ensuring that each one of us was accorded equal opportunities to live with dignity and security, has equitable access to a better life, and is an equal partner in this nation’s growth.
In deepening the promise of India, Samruddha Bharat Foundation (SBF) has been established as a multi-party platform as a follow up to the Dr. B.R. Ambedkar International Conference (Quest for Equity) held in Bengaluru, Karnataka in July 2017 to:
- Safeguard and further the constitutional idea of India.
- Forge an alliance of progressive forces.
- Substantively re-think current social, political and economic paradigms.
- Encourage a transformative spirit in Indian politics and society.
