On the occasion of BR Ambedkar’s 127th Birth Anniversary, tell us something about the father of Indian constitution?
Ssharad Malhotraa – He did his best for the nation but still we have a long way to go. I wish he was alive to take his policies further.
Sheeba – He was a champion in defending the rights of women, Dalits and the labour class. He was a scholar and a learned man. He was a great liberator and social reformer. A principal architect for the constitution of India, he was conferred the Bharat Ratna posthumously.
Akashdeep Sabir – Babasaheb Ambedkar would have felt very bad seeing what the country has become. From giving quotas to the SC-ST, which made sense at that time, to now almost the whole country crying for quota and reservations, the basic thread seems to have been lost. India has been mismanaged. I think Ambedkar will also agree that Sardar Patel’s iron hand or Netaji Subhash Bose’s hardcore leadership would have made India a better place today.
Aniruddh Dave – Babasaheb Ambedkar has done so much in his own way for the nation. It’s sad that we are not living up to the expectations he would have wanted us to follow. We are not even doing our bit as citizens and human beings.
Laksh – Looking at the state of the country today, Babasaheb Ambedkar would be so disappointed. We seem to have found ways to misuse rights and ignore or duties. We must take this day to really introspect where we have faltered and try to think of ways to fix it.
Rohit Purohit: I feel as a tribute to this brilliant man, we must take this day to think about all that we can do for the country. We must strive to make people aware of their rights, especially women and the lower class.
Aadesh Chowdhary: The Indian constitution is one of the best in the world and we have Babasaheb Ambedkar to thank for that. I just feel that it’s time that we relook at the provisions in the constitution. Times have changed now and things need to be updated.
Kajol Srivastava: Babasaheb Ambedkar was a great man. Besides being an architect of the constitution, he also worked a lot for the labour class and the Dalits. I think we should take this day to know more about him.
Ayyaz Ahmad: The Indian constitution is great and we owe that to him. However, the state in which the country is today is not a pleasant one. He would be very upset if he saw that today. I wish he was alive to correct things and help this country progress.
