Dr. Bihmrao Ramji Ambedkar, popularly known as Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, was the principal architect of the Indian Constitution and an emancipator of the poor and deprived. He was a crusader against the caste system in India, a valiant fighter for the cause of the down trodden, a great statesman and a National Leader of India. Dr. Babasaheb was a hope for the millions of depressed, oppressed and exploited people. His mission was to challenge the ideological foundation of graded system of caste hierarchy that denied equality, freedom and human dignity to minorities as well as women in Indian society. He developed Indian constitution and tried to bring equality by the rule of law in India. Babasaheb Ambedkar left behind vast writings, teachings and valuable speeches that can never be forgotten.
The aim of this conversation is to reflect on, and remember his teachings, ideas, vision and his methods to bring change in ourselves and society.
