This is a comparative study of the two eminent political thinkers, an unusual and interesting subject which gives fresh insights into the minds of these two great leaders.
Why did he decide to compare two statesmen of different eras? They both had very different personalities, they came from different backgrounds. One belonged to an affluent family, the other came from an underprivileged milieu. However, they both served humanity and both had great compassion for human suffering. At a critical time in history, both gave direction to their nation and to the citizens. On this occasion, we will also hear about the life and times of Thomas Jefferson and Dr. Ambedkar.
