On 14th April 1891 in India, there was a rise of greatest humanitarian revolutionary of modern world, as he was born in the untouchable society of past India, so in his early years, he suffered many atrocities with him. But he made his sufferings as strength and decided to fight peacefully against these all discriminations and brought a marvelous social, economical, political revolution in India. Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the Chief Architect of Indian Constitution was a scholar par excellence. His statesman qualities can be easily visible in each and every article of Indian Constitution, which declares India to be a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic and a welfare state committed to secure justice, liberty and equality for the people and for promoting fraternity, dignity of the individual and unity and integrity of the nation.
His struggle revolves around the time where unlike different out castes he was also forbidden to take education as he was banned from sitting inside the classroom. He then used to sit outside the classroom and practiced his education. This went for 10 years until he was able to clear his elementary and matriculation. He also went through various mental stress as the upper caste peoples used to dominate the out castes. Upper caste peoples used to torture out castes in a very humiliating way, if taking the example of an incident in elementary school of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, when he used to get thirsty, he would turn his mouth in upward direction, and someone would place a funnel in his mouth and pour the water from the kettle into it.
Dr. Ambedkar was a great patriot, social thinker, political reformer, a true feminist, philosophical writer with progressive ideas. He stood for all political, social and cultural activities which increased the cause of human progress and happiness. He crusaded for the betterment of the oppressed and depressed classes. In this struggle, he stood rare crusading spirit, carving out in this process and playing significant role for himself among the leading architects of modern India.
He is also remembered and admired as the Greatest humanitarian, statesman of the world, a true Nationalist, sociologist, philosopher, Anthropologist, a visionary, an emancipator, historian, economist, jurist, a prolific writer, a powerful orator, the unique political and moral philosopher and the revolutionary who paved way for the reconstruction of the world mental and material. His course work in Columbia University over the span of 3 years included 29 courses in economics, 11 in history, 6 in sociology, 5 in philosophy, 4 in anthropology, 3 in politics and 1 each in elementary French and German.
Ambedkar was voted the "Greatest Indian" in 2012 by a poll organized by History TV18 and CNN IBN. Dr. Ambedkar was "the highest educated Indian economist of all times." Due to his role in economics Amartya Sen, said that Ambedkar is "father of my economics,” His contribution in the field of economics is marvelous and will be remembered forever. In post-Independence India, his socio-political thought is respected across the political spectrum. The initiatives taken by him have influenced various spheres of life and transformed the way India today looks at socio-economic policies, education and affirmative action through socio-economic and legal incentives. He passionately believed in individual freedom and criticized caste society.
The ideas which Dr. Ambedkar poured on the oppressed people of India gave them a new courage and a sense of self respect that they had never known before. The Ambedkar statue was an icon for depressed and oppressed classes civil rights.
He strongly supported for federal system. The draft constitution can be both unitary as well as federal according to the requirements of time and circumstances. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar supported the minorities’ rights that “It is wrong for the majority to deny the existence of minorities. It is equally wrong for the minorities to perpetuate themselves. A solution must be found which will serve a double purpose. It must recognize the existence of the minorities to start with. It must also be such that it will enable majorities and minorities to merge somebody into one. The solution proposed by the constituent assembly is to be welcomed because it is a solution which serves this two-fold purpose”.
As a social reformer, Dr. Ambedkar believed in peaceful methods of social change. He was opposed to the violent methods in social change for it hinders the tranquility and creates chaos. He had no faith in anarchy methods. A welfare state of all cannot be developed on the grounds of terror, force and brutal methods. According to him violent methods to a peaceful society is not only improper but also unscientific and immoral. According to Dr. Ambedkar, social change and social justice are indeed critical to the egalitarianism that any democracy must aspire it. As a social democrat Dr. Ambedkar stressed on a much broader notion of stable reconstruction of India with inclusive growth and cultural integration in the Nation without caste discrimination.
Ambedkar advocated democracy in every field: social, economic and political. For him social justice meant maximum happiness to the maximum number of people. He led a number of social movements to secure human rights to the oppressed and depressed sections of the society. He stands as a symbol of struggle for social justice. Thus, Ambedkar wanted a nation to be built on the democratic method, upholding the trinity of freedom, equality and fraternity in a parliamentary democracy. Wherein majority should rule but not at the cost of minority, thus the proper protection to the marginalized is the essence of an egalitarian nation.
Dr. B.R. Ambedkar had a short but the most remarkable life one ever could have lived. He rose up from dust, from being treated worse than an animal to becoming the father of the Indian Constitution. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was truly a multi-faceted personality. A veritable emancipator of untouchables, a great National leader and patriot, a great economist, a great author, a great educationalist, a great political philosopher, a great religious guide and above all a great humanist without any parallel among his contemporaries. All these facets of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s personality had strong humanist underpinnings. His life and work guide many oppressed classes of all over the world to pave revolution and make life better. In his entire life he worked for conflict resolutions and brought peace in Indian society and so in world.
The most revolutionary field that he worked on was to give equal rights to women of India. He was a feminist in true sense. Apart from the numerous speeches which drive home his basic speech of equality of women, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s theorization of the interlinked nature of caste and gender-based oppression in India was a pioneering feat. By codifying Hindu personal law, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar facilitated the legal recognition of women as equal citizen. He granted women the right to divorce, the right to inheritance and he provide for legal recognition of inter caste marriages.
Besides all these things, the thoughts and ideologies of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar faces a lot of criticism. None of those criticism is logical or unbiased, this is done by the people who still believe in the casteist ideology and are unaware of the work that Babasaheb has done towards the society.
In this world full of diversities, he introduced a composite culture in whole world by his great document Indian Constitution. India also consists of many diversities and many conflicts between communities, so for resolving this he people’s life, for peace building, he worked on people legally, mentally as well as spiritually. While having this much of huge contribution in peace building of world, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar should have been awarded noble peace prize but Ironically till now he has not received the Noble Peace Prize yet.made Indian Constitution which talks about Unity in diversity with fraternity among all citizens. He accepted peaceful way of mind (living) and he adopted Buddhism and from this in
