This is a succinct overview of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s life:

Early Life:

On April 14, 1891, in Mhow, Madhya Pradesh, India, Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born. His caste was considered to be Mahar (Dalit), or “untouchable.” He was the fourteenth child of British Indian Army officer Ramji Sakpal.

 Education:

Ambedkar attended colleges in Germany, Britain, and the United States. The Gaekwar (ruler) of Baroda (now Vadodara) gave him a scholarship.

Political Career:

In 1947, Ambedkar was appointed as the Indian government’s minister of law. He was instrumental in the Indian constitution’s drafting, which made it illegal to discriminate against untouchables. Disappointed with his lack of power inside the cabinet, he resigned in 1951.

 Framer of the Constitution of India:

Dr. Ambedkar was appointed as the chairman of the constitution drafting committee on August 29, 1947. Ambedkar placed a strong emphasis on creating a bridge that virtually connects all social groups. He said that if the differences between the classes were not respected, it would be hard to keep the nation united. He gave equal rights to religion, gender, and caste special attention.

Death:

Ambedkar passed away in New Delhi, India, on December 6, 1956. He was sixty-five years old.

A prominent figure in the Indian independence movement and the reformation of Indian society by advocating for increased equality and rights for women and the impoverished, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar was a political reformer from India.
