"So long as you do not achieve social liberty, whatever freedom is provided by the law is of no avail to you”. Yes, Dr Bhimrao Ramji Amabedkar proved his words right. He made us realize what the actual meaning of freedom is. What freedom should be like, how fellow citizens should be treated and how the society should be formed. Apart from Mughals and Islamic ruler, British ruled us for almost 200 long years. British were the most organized community who knew the crucial diplomacy and they followed the divide and rule policy. Using which they wanted to break the unity of fellow Indian mates and they succeeded to some extent. Achieving freedom from the chain of British rule was perhaps the biggest motto of every Indian citizen for 200 years but that was not the only mission. Because our nation was devastated from inside, It was suffering from so many superstitious issues based on cast, creed and religious beliefs.
Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on 14 April 1891 and he was so popularly known as Babasaheb. He felt the need of social reformation in the Indian society after independence. Right from his childhood he faced unwanted situations because of the issues like untouchability and inequality and his tender heart broke every time in pain .He kept on asking why this kind of discrepancies were existing in the country.
After long years of struggle he became successful in life. He was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who chaired the Drafting Committee of the Constituent Assembly and was India's First Minister for Law and Justice.
“Untouchability is not a simple matter,” Ambedkar said in a speech in 1927. “It is the mother of all our poverty and lowliness and it has brought us to the abject state we are in today. The inequality inherent in the four-caste system must be rooted out.” The nation salutes the maker of modern India and the father of Indian Constitution.
