I have seen people celebrating the birthday of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar with great fervor. Processions are carried out and many functions are organized wherein people pay tributes to this great personality. Personally I feel we should all celebrate 14th April with unity. His contribution towards the people of India can never be undermined.

We all should celebrate Ambedkar Jayanti. He not only championed the cause of Dalits but also of women. He worked towards a better India. The achievements of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar should be highlighted. Children should be made aware of his contribution towards modern India. Dalits are leading a better life now than earlier and all this is due to the efforts of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar.

Dr. B. R. Ambedkar was the father of Indian constitution. He was born on 14th April so this day is celebrated as Ambedkar Jayanti all over India. Indians staying in other parts of the world also celebrate the birthday of Dr. Ambedkar. Dr. Ambedkar was the messiah of untouchables hence they have high regards for him.
