Ambedkar Jayanti is celebrated on April 14 every year in India to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar. On this auspicious day, we pay respects to him for what he has contributed to Indian law and the constitution. Dalits treat him as their god because he is one of the major reasons for the abolition of untouchability in India.

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891. He was the first minister of Law and Justice of India from August 29, 1947, to January 24, 1950, and the principal architect of the Constitution of India, the biggest and most complex constitution in the world. He is also known as the father of the Indian constitution.

Commonly known as Babasaheb, Dr. Ambedkar was a professional economist. He established the Finance Commission of India. The Reserve Bank of India runs on guidelines and ideas formed by Ambedkar.

Dr Ambedkar is one of the major reasons for the abolition of untouchability in India. He organised various protests and launched active movements with the objective of upliftment of the untouchables.
