Ambedkar’s role in nation-building discussed
The Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Amravati Centre, hosted a special lecture to celebrate Bhimrao Ambedkar's 130th anniversary.
Ramesh Patange, a senior journalist and eminent writer, was the keynote speaker at the session chaired by V. K. Bharti, head, publication and editor, communicator (IIMC).
Patange spoke about Ambedkar's role in the making of the Indian Constitution and how as chairman of the Constitution's drafting committee, he researched democratic constitutions around the world and incorporated the best of them into the Indian Constitution. He said the mission of Ambedkar's life was equality, democracy and brotherhood and these are reflected in the Indian Constitution.
Ambedkar, according to Patange, was instrumental in several significant national-level decisions. Whether it was improving the social status of women, decreasing working hours from 12 to 8, or considering the Reserve Bank of India and suggesting the grid method for power distribution, Ambedkar played a significant role in nation-building. He was the architect of modern India.
Bharti said Ambedkar played an important role in the formulation of the Constitution, as well as in the field of labour welfare. Ambedkar was the saviour of both the Dalit and working classes. He said Ambedkar was one of the few Indians who fought a long fight to change India’s orthodox traditions and also dedicated his life to social and economic reforms.
Bharti said he believed that Ambedkar’s views on social security and labour welfare remain relevant even now despite the current economic instability and global epidemic. His life motivates us to tackle every obstacle by relying on our courage and hard work. Every aspect of India bears the imprint of Ambedkar's contribution, he said.
