“Freedom of mind is the real freedom. A person whose mind is not free though he may not be in chains is a slave, not a free man.”
Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti is observed on 14 April to commemorate the memory of B. R. Ambedkar, Indian politician and social reformer. It marks Ambedkar’s birthday who was born on 14 April 1891. His birthday is also referred to as ‘Equality Day’ by some in India. Ambedkar Jayanti processions are carried out by his followers. It is a customary for senior national figures, such as the President, Prime Minister and leaders of major political parties, to pay homage at the statue of Ambedkar at the Parliament of India. Recognised as the first Law and Justice Minister of Independent India, Ambedkar’s contribution to construct the entire concept of Republic of India is immense. To honour his contribution and service to the country, his birthday is celebrated every year on the 14th of April. A principal architect of the Constitution of India, Ambedkar also advocated for women’s rights and labours’ rights. Ambedkar’s philosophy is still relevant to this day. Without Babasaheb’s active role in shaping up India’s socio-cultural system, it would have been nearly impossible to make any progress from dated and archaic beliefs and to the country the world’s biggest democracy. GD Goenka Public School, Rohini, Sector 9, pays tribute to the great soul on his Jayanti.
