Inaugurated by reformers like Mahadev Govind Ranade (1842-1901), the Social Conference "aimed at vitalising the conscience of Hindu society, but the orbit of its activities did not cross the borders of the upper class Hindus"; its approach "began at the top and not from the bottom" (Dhananjay Keer, Dr. Ambedkar: Life and Mission; Bombay: Popular Prakashan, 1971 [1954], 56).
