Dr B R Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891, and on 29 August 1947, he was appointed by the Assembly to write the Indian constitution. The Constituent Assembly adopted the first constitution on 26 November 1949. Ambedkar also inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits). He along with 600000 of his followers gave up Hinduism and adopted Buddhism in 1956. Hence, every year on Ashoka Vijaydashmi, Dhammachakra Pravartan Din is observed and many people gather at Deekshabhoomi in Nagpur and adopt Buddhism.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the gatherings have been restricted, therefore, the organising committee at Deekshabhoomi has advised people to offer Buddha Vandana from home. Many people have been observing this day at home online since 2019.
