Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar studied in the prestigious Columbia University in New York in 1913.

He used this tool for criticizing traditional Hindu political leaders and practices of cast discrimination. He delivered various speeches to encourage the untouchables to fight against social discrimination.

He also started takings meetings known as Bahiskrit Hitakarani Sabha for the encouraging the welfare, education and social development of lower class. He also undertook massive movements to give rights to untouchables to share common source of drinking water with others and enter the temples.

Therefore on 14th October 1956 he organised a ceremony where lakhs of people came and accepted Buddhism as their religion along with him.

One of the features of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar's multidimensional character was that he had great love for books. His interest in reading was so deep that he could concentrate on reading even in crowded or very noisy places. He could read books even during having a normal discussion with his friends, family or colleagues. He was successful to put end to the sufferings of millions. He is a pure example and inspiration of hard work, dedication, commitment, love and humanity.

He Opposed the Partition Of India to the maximum extent. Because he has completely foreseen the situation after Partition as they lack good constitution, all necessary resources for Development, Infrastructure. People will surely suffer.But others Directly/Indirectly supported Partition and now we can compare situation of Pakistan with India, They would have benefited immensely in absence of Partition. Unfortunately they could not stop partition.
