Long Speech on Ambedkar Jayanti

Hello everyone. It gives me great pleasure to present before you a speech on Ambedkar Jayanti. Ambedkar Jayanti is Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar’s birthday. He was born on 14th April 1891. Every year, this day is celebrated as Ambedkar Jayanti. We all know him as the father of the Indian constitution. But his contribution is not limited to just this. He was a very talented person. He was a politician, a social reformer, a jurist and an economist. He always fought against the injustices prevalent in Indian society. He was the leader of the Dalits. 

Dr Ambedkar became the law minister in the year 1947. But he resigned in the year 1951 as he was disappointed with his lack of influence in the Indian government. Because of the perpetuation of untouchability in Hindu doctrine, Dr Ambedkar renounced Hinduism and became a Buddhist along with his 200000 follower Dalits. He wrote a book - “The Buddha and his Dhamma” which was published in the year 1957. This book was republished in 2011 with the name “The Buddha and His Dhamma: A Critical Edition”, introduced, edited and annotated by Ajay Verma and Aakash Singh Rathode. 

In 1923, Dr BR Ambedkar established the “Bahishkrit Hitkarini Sabha” which aimed to spread awareness about the importance of education and enhancing the economic status of the low-class people of our country. He also ran a social movement to eradicate the caste system from India under the slogan “Educate - Agitate - Organize”. He wished to rebuild Indian society by following the rule of equality of all human beings. He also led a march at Mahad, Maharashtra for establishing equal rights for untouchable people in 1927. The Dalits were not allowed to touch or taste the water of “Public Chavdar Lake”. He is also remembered for starting social movements such as anti-caste, anti-priest and temple entry movements. In the year 1930, he led a temple entry movement in Kalaram Temple, Nashik, Maharashtra. He was a member of the Viceroy's Executive Council and in 1942, he got involved in making legal changes to protect the low-class people’s rights. 

Let us now have a look at his personal life. Dr Ambedkar did his matriculation in the year 1907. He then completed his B.A. in Economics and Political Science. After that, he did his Masters from Columbia University and also got a PhD degree in economics in the year 1927. He was adept in 64 subjects. He could also speak 11 languages proficiently. Another fact about him is that he was the first Dalit to complete his education. 

Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar was honoured with Bharat Ratna award in the year 1990, April for his tremendous contribution towards our society. He also formed a political party known as the “ Indian Labour Party”. He is a true inspiration to the youth of our country. We should all follow him and his great principles. Thank You!
