Ambedkar Jayanti Speech
“Life should be great rather than long”.
With this beautiful thought of B. R. Ambedkar, I would like to welcome everyone present over here to the celebration of Ambedkar Jayanti.
Ambedkar Jayanti is also known as Bhim Jayanti is an annual festival which is celebrated on the 14th of April every year. It is celebrated on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, who was born in 1891.
He is remembered as one of the freedom fighters & social reformers of India. Let me put some light on the Life of Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. He completed his matriculation in 1907, then continued with BA in economics & political science.
He did his masters from Columbia University & got a PhD in economics in 1927. He was a person who had a keen interest in economics & political science.
He was adept in 64 subjects & was able to speak 11 languages proficiently. He is famously known as “Babasaheb”.He was one of the first Dalit in India to complete his education.
He emerged as a leader by fighting against the prevailing social & economic issues of India. He acted a driving force behind the Dalit or the untouchables after India got independence.
We all are familiar with the casteism system in India. Although what we see today is a far better scenario, but back then, the idea of equality was almost unacceptable.
There always prevailed a bad feeling for the lower caste of society. Babasaheb emerged as a leader of Dalit’s & fought to get equal rights for his entire life. He formed new laws to support the lower caste of society & to bring equality in society.
Dr. Ambedkar contributed a lot to law & education. He was the first Law Minister of Independent India & also the chairman of the Constitution Drafting Committee. He was also awarded Bharat Ratna for his contribution.
He also formed a political party which was called as “Independent Labour Party”. He is an inspiration for all the young lawyers of the world.
Babasaheb was one of the most outstanding leaders of the history of India. He will always be remembered to bring the most significant reform in Indian society, which provided many with equal opportunity.
He was a man of talent & knowledge. He was a politician, jurist, economist, teacher, orator, philosopher as well as a social reformer.
This day is a tribute to the great man who worked for helping people in every possible way. It is a pride for all Indians to celebrate his birthday and to continue to work for the society by taking immense inspiration from him.
