Speech on Babasaheb Ambedkar
Today I’m going to share with you my dear teachers and students, some interesting facts on Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, who is commonly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar. It is rather hard to describe everything on this great personality in a few minutes. I will still try to make the Speech on Babasaheb Ambedkar comprehensive. He was the pioneer in many fields in India, which was no mean achievement!
Babasaheb Ambedkar was a multi-talented leader and he was basically a radical person who thought ahead of his contemporaries. He was a talented economist, politician and above all he was one of the greatest social reformers who played the key role behind the Dalit Buddhist movement. His contribution behind social reforms is undeniable. He succeeded in making the contemporary society think differently on age old prejudices and superstitions. He was conferred the highest civilian award of India, Bharat Ratna posthumously, but no award will be enough to recognize his achievements.
Apart from the numerous social reform work he carried out throughout his life, Dr Ambedkar played a major role behind the formation of Indian Constitution. He was a talented student and became a scholar in political science, law, and economics. After working as a professor, lawyer and economist, he turned to political activities. Later is his life he converted to Buddhism. Throughout his life he tried to enlighten the mass about the misconceptions and stigma about the underprivileged communities.
Ambedkar was a harsh critic of ancient texts that justify untouchability and promote caste discrimination. He served as Independent India’s first Law Minister. At this stage of life, he played the role in developing the Constitution of the country. Even the formation of the present, RBI was done following the theories and principles laid out by him.
The social and economic reforms he introduced made him face severe criticism from a section of society and political circles. But he was never scared of championing the cause of the underprivileged lot in the country. I sincerely feel such unique leaders are born in our nation again.
