Why Do We Celebrate Ambedkar Jayanti?

14th April (Ambedkar Jayanti) marks the birth anniversary of the man behind India’s constitution and a leader who worked towards the upliftment of Dalits: Babasaheb Ambedkar. Listen to this story to learn why he is so well respected and we celebrate his birthday as Ambedkar Jayanti.

Ambedkar was a prolific student earning doctorates in economics from both Columbia University and the London School of Economics and gained a reputation as a scholar for his research in law, economics, and political science. In his early career, he was an economist, professor, and lawyer. His later life was marked by his political activities; he became involved in campaigning and negotiations for India’s independence, publishing journals, advocating political rights and social freedom for Dalits, and contributing significantly to the establishment of the state of India.
