On Saturday, April 14, 2018, students celebrated the 127th birth anniversary of Bhim Rao Ambedkar. Popularly known as Babasaheb. He was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement and campaigned against social discrimination against untouchables since he was a Dalit too and also supported the rights of women and labour.
However, Ambedkar’s importance in Indian history cannot just be limited to a person who championed for the rights of the poor, downtrodden and lower caste people. He can easily be remembered as “The Father of the Constitution of India” and the man who fought for the oppressed in the country. He was the principal architect of our Constitution and a founding father of the Republic of India.
As a tribute to the “The Father of the Constitution of India”, UG students presented a video on the life of Babasaheb. They also through songs and roll-play enacted about Dalit movement in India, the contribution made by Babasaheb fighting social discrimination and upholding the rights of Dalits & women in general.
