Dr. B. R. Ambedkar is looked upto as a symbol of equality. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar played an important role in framing the constitution of our country. He outlawed the discrimination against lower castes or untouchables and wanted to establish equality among our countrymen. He said that he believed in a society where friendship, equality, and brotherhood exist. However, a man who did so much for our country had suffered many atrocities about his caste in the initial days.
Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar also known as Babasaheb Ambedkar was born on 14 April 1891, in a village named Mhow in Indore district of Madhya Pradesh. His father’s name was Ramji Sakpal who served the country while in the Indian Army and due to his good work, he rose to the rank of Subedar in the army. His mother’s name was Bhima bai. Since the beginning, Ramji encouraged his children to study and to work hard, due to which Bhimrao Ambedkar was fond of studies since childhood. However, he belonged to the Mahar caste, and people belonging to this caste were also called untouchables at that time. The meaning of untouchable was that if any belonging of the upper castes was touched by the people of the lower caste, it was considered impure and the people of the upper caste would not use those things.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar left this world on 6th December 1956. This day is observed as Mahaparinirvan Diwas or death anniversary. The day is celebrated to pay homage to Babasaheb Ambedkar and to honour his lifetime of efforts to eradicate untouchability in India.
