“Because of his caste, you broke his statue; but the laws he wrote protects you till date. You do violence with arms, but with his book in our hands thousand Ambedkars will rise.”
The above is the opening stanza of the ‘Onruser’ song released by Pa Ranjith’s Neelam YouTube channel. The song was released days after a statue of BR Ambedkar was vandalised during communal clashes in Vedaranyam.
‘Onruser’ has very powerful lyrics written by Arivu, who has also rendered his voice for the song. The song which runs for 3 minutes and 29 seconds has carries a strong message regarding the various accomplishments and changes Ambedkar had brought to the society we live in.
In one of the verses of the song, Arivu calls Ambedkar as the person who dedicated his whole life to cure the disease of caste. As on 29th August, the song has got over 40,000 views on YouTube. Check out the song below.
