Remembering Dr. Ambedkar

After 65 years of his demise, the point is how should we look at the life and ideas of Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar(1891-1956)? How are we remembering Dr. Ambedkar? We usually uphold his thought in the making of the Indian Constitution. The familiar depiction of his image dressed in a western suit with his right hand raised and his left hand holding a copy of the Indian Constitution typically speaks of his profound scholarship and his authorship of the text of the Indian Constitution which he so meticulously drafted as the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of the Constituent Assembly of India.
