Watch: Ambedkar, a Symbol of Revolutionary Change in Modern India

Ambedkar worked tirelessly for the rights of the oppressed, providing radical solutions that put him at odds with national figures like Mahatma Gandhi.

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891, and has since become an icon for the people of the country. Though installed as the ‘father of the constitution’ in our popular imagination, Ambedkar also worked tirelessly for the rights of the oppressed, providing radical solutions that put him at odds with national figures like Mahatma Gandhi. Ambedkar remains a symbol of revolutionary change in the modern times we live in.

    Did RSS support Hindu Code Bill? Can anyone tell, what Mr Atal Not Bihari was doing at that time? I want to know how a Bharat Ratna (awarded when live) thought about the bill introduced by another Bharat Ratna (awarded posthumously).
