PATNA: Had Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar not emerged on the socio- political scene of India, I would not have become the Speaker of Bihar Vidhan Sabha or, for that matter, Meira Kumar would not have occupied the prestigious chair of the Speaker of Lok Sabha, said Uday Narain Chaudhary.

Addressing the Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations organized by Patna University (PU) at geology department auditorium here on Wednesday, Chaudhary said till 1980s the Indian society had not accepted Ambedkar as a national hero. But, he is being widely acclaimed by all sections of the society today. It was Ambedkar who championed the cause of humanitarianism and tried to minimize the distance between two individuals. He, however, regretted that educated Dalits occupying important positions have started forgetting Ambedkar now a days.

Speaking as chief guest on the occasion, Justice Jai Nandan Singh of Patna High Court observed that Ambedkar would always occupy a prominent place in the pages of Indian history because of his valuable contributions to society. The Indian Constitution is greatly influenced by his revolutionary ideas and thoughts, he added.

In his key-note address, eminent litterateur and MLC Prem Kumar Mani said Ambedkar was not well understood in his time, but gained much popularity in later years. Mahatma Gandhi was very much influenced by Ambedkar in initiating programmes for eradication of social evils and the uplift of the deprived sections. Both Gandhi and Ambedkar fought political battles but they themselves remained apolitical. Ambedkar wanted to link social problems with the freedom struggle, he added.

PU vice-chancellor Shyam Lal , in his presidential remarks, said the ideas of Ambedkar were still very much relevant today and none can ignore his contributions to the socio-economic development of Indian society. Ambedkar worked for ensuring a classless, casteless and divisionless society and fostering unity amidst diversity, the VC said.

PU pro-VC S I Ahson, registrar Manoj Kumar and philosophy teacher R S Arya also addressed the gathering.

Mumbai :  A museum with many personal effects of revolutionary leader Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar became a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of admirers on Wednesday, the 119th birth anniversary of the father of the Indian constitution.

Besides this, the museum has 1,000 books belonging to Ambedkar, his violin, study table, a silver ink-pot presented to him by Lord Mountbatten, spectacles, the fur cap he wore during the fourth conference on Buddhism held in Nepa, and manuscripts of many his books.Located in the premises of Symbiosis Society on Senapati Bapat Road, the museum spread on a two-acre plot has the bed on which Ambedkar breathed his last, his footwear and clothes, utensils, travelling kit, the chair on which he was seated when he presented the Constitution of India to the Parliament and his Bharat Ratna medal. An urn containing his ashes has also been kept in the museum.
The museum also receives a throng of visitors on Ambedkar’s death anniversary on December 6, and on January 1, the anniversary of the first victory of the Mahar regiment over the Peshwas, said Sanjeevani Mujumdar, the society’s honorary secretary and wife of Symbiosis founder SB Mujumdar.
“Dr Ambedkar’s widow Mai Ambedkar actually wanted to have a museum of his belongings in Delhi. But because of space restraint, she couldn’t realise her dream. It was around this time that she met SB Mujumdar a couple of times in Mumbai in 1984-85, and after a couple of meetings with our family, she decided to give away these priceless belongings for the museum,” she said.
The museum was constructed in the 1990s on a barren piece of land. The building is also used by the society for literacy programmes for its lower staff, character-building classes for children from neighbouring slums, and as a study center.

Mumbai:  Long, orderly queues are a common sight at Chaityabhoomi near Shivaji Park, the resting place of legendary leader Dr BR Ambedkar, and Wednesday, his 119th birth anniversary, was no different as thousands of followers in white stood waiting in the afternoon sun to get a ‘darshan’.
The occasion saw families from Marathwada who reached Mumbai early in the morning to visit Chaityabhoomi. They said Ambedkar’s resting place gives them inspiration to face life’s battles that they need to face often.“White is the colour of peace and Babasaheb always spoke about peace and equality,” said seventh-grade student Shweta Wankhede. “I will study further as Ambedkar had said, study, unite, and fight the challenges, which is what I want to do.”
“He pulled us out from the rubble and showed us what it is to lead a life of a human being. His sufferings are really nothing compared to ours. We have benefited because of his struggles,” said Anapurna Wakle, a 50-year-old lady from Nanded.
Siddharth Wankhede, another follower from Buldhana, added, “Coming here reminds us of our history — the fight to eradicate the caste system, the violence leashed on us, and Babasaheb’s teachings. By drafting the constitution he led our country into a new dawn. Had he been alive today, India was sure to have progressed much more.”
Many stalls lined the road from the junction at Shivaji Park to the Chaityaboomi structure selling books, CDs, pictures, posters of Dr Ambedkar and Gautam Buddha, while flags and colours of Buddha and Dalits fluttered in the wind.
Bhimrao Ambedkar from Gautam Nagar, Powai, said he is inspired by Dr Ambedkar and wanted to read more about him. “I read that Babasaheb was asked to fill a form and he wrote in his blood because he was denied admission to a college. Thereafter, he went on to become a barrister. This is inspiring for children like me,” said Ambedkar.
The police were expecting over 9,000 followers at Chaityabhoomi, and had taken precautions of deploying the new combat vehicles and had also kept boats on guard. “We have three boats, including one of the fire brigade. There is a fire engine, a combat vehicle and 100 police on bandobast,” said Sanjay Kawde, the police inspector on duty.

President Pratibha Patil led the nation in paying homage to the late Dr B R Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution of India, on his 119th birth anniversary here today.

Ms Patil joined other leaders in offering floral tributes at the statue of Dr Ambedkar on the lawns of the Parliament House complex this morning.

Vice-President M Hamid Ansari, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, ruling United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj were amongst those present on the occasion.

Also present were Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Mukul Wasnik, Minister of Labour & Employment Mallikarjun Kharge, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pawan Kumar Bansal and Minister of State, Social Justice & Empowerment D. Napolean.

Thousands of people visited theParliament House Complex since morning to pay tributes to Dr Ambedkar, regarded as a messiah of the marginalised and downtrodden sections of society. The function began with a prayer by Buddhist monks. Later, artistes of the Song and Drama Division presented songs.

The function was organised by the Ambedkar Foundation, an autonomous organization 

under the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment.

President Pratibha Patil, Vice President Hamid Ansari and Congress president Sonia Gandhi were present at a function held in Delhi.

Dr Ambedkar spent his life fighting untouchability and the Indian caste system.
He is also credited for having sparked off the Dalit Buddhist movement and was honoured with the Bharat Ratna for his contribution to Indian society.
Overcoming numerous social and financial obstacles, Ambedkar became one of the first ‘untouchables’ to obtain a college education in India.

Ambedkar: Visionary, leader, jurist

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891 in Madhya Pradesh to parents who belonged to the untouchableMahar caste. From a very young age, Ambedkar had endured enormous hardships due to the severe caste practices prevalent in the Hindu religion.
Although born to an untouchable schoolteacher in the British Army, Ambedkar was highly educated; a Ph.D. from Columbia University (1927), D.Sc. from London School of Economics and Bar-At-Law from Gray’s Inn in London (1923).
Ambedkar returned to India and established himself in Bombay, built up his legal practice, taught in law colleges and universities and also started a newspaper. In 1935, he was appointed as the principal of the Government Law College, a position that he held for two years. In 1936, Ambedkar founded the Independent Labour Party and in 1942 he founded the Scheduled Caste Federation for the independent political assertion of Dalits. 
In 1947 India achieved independence and Prime Minister Nehru appointed Ambedkar as the first Law Minister.  Despite his unpopularity and criticisms, Ambedkar was also appointed Chairman of the Drafting Committee for the Constitution of India and played the central role in its drafting.  February 1948, he presented the Draft Constitution that was adopted in November 1949 with all its 356 articles.
As the Law Minister, Ambedkar fought vigorously for the passage of the Hindu Code Bill, one of the most significant legislation for women’s right in respect of marriage and inheritance. He resigned in September 1951 when the Bill did not pass in the Parliament.
Ambedkar died on December 6, 1956.  In 1990, he was posthumously honoured with India’s highest national award, “Bharat Ratna”. His teachings and writings have continued to influence a vast number of followers.
