Ambedkar Jayanti History

Ambedkar Jayanti, also known as Bhim Jayanti, was first observed in 1928. It is now a public holiday in over 25 states and union territories in India.

He excelled academically, becoming the first Indian to earn a PhD in Economics from a foreign university. Ambedkar used his expertise in economics to challenge outdated beliefs and advocate for equal rights for all. He established organisations and published periodicals to promote education and uplift marginalised communities.

He fought for the equal rights of the untouchables (Dalits), the labourers and women. Ambedkar's efforts led to the Poona Pact, ensuring fair representation for deprived classes in the legislature. His contributions continued even after India's independence. He was put in charge of drafting the nation's first Constitution as the Law and Justice Minister, which he agreed to. This led to the creation of the Constitution of India. Ambedkar's relentless fight for equality earned him recognition. His birthday, Ambedkar Jayanti, which is celebrated every year, is also called as Equality Day.
