Celebrating the spirit of Ambedkar

On the 126th birth anniversary of BR Ambedkar, DEF reached out to some of its beneficiaries in backward, minority and tribal districts of India and asked them how they associate their lives with Ambedkar’s ideologies.

CIRCs across India shared with DEF head office what Ambedkar idealogy or thought resonates best with them. Throughout the day on April 14, 2017, photographs came in from various parts of the country, with men, women and children holding their favourite quote of social reformer BR Ambedkar. On the occasion, CIRC Nichlagarh in Rajasthan even organised a rally, led by school students and followed by community members, to commemorate Ambedkar’s life and raise awareness about his role in drafting the Constitution. The rally helped people understand their Fundamental Rights.
