B. R. Ambedkar's 63rd death anniversary: His philosophies makes sense even today


Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was the architect of the Indian Constitution who passed away on 6th December 1956. He was the first Indian to receive a doctorate degree in economics from abroad.

Famous among people by the name of 'Babasaheb', Dr Ambedkar was an Indian jurist, economist, politician, and a social reformer. 

Right after India achieved its goal of independence, he was made the Chairman of the Constitution Drafting Committee. As the 1st Minister of Law and Order of independent India, he actually used the power to fight against discrimination, inequality, and injustice against the lower sections of society (especially against Dalits), throughout his life.


He wore many hats at the beginning of his career & later, he stepped into politics and fought in India's fight for independence. After independence, his focus turned towards the betterment of the Indian society as a whole and due to this, the Dalit community holds him in high regards. 

For his contribution to the Indian society, in 1990, he was conferred with Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India. Although it’s his 63rd death anniversary today, his principles and philosophies are prevalent in today's time. He is still remembered by the people for his enormous contributions for the betterment of the underprivileged sections of the Indian society.
