History of Ambedkar Jayanti

He was not allowed to sit inside the class and was not even allowed to touch or drink water from a vessel, which everyone else used. In 1924, Ambedkar returned to India and fought against the caste system.

On 25th December 1927, he publicly condemned the Manusmriti for justifying the caste discrimination and the untouchability. “The real way of breaking up the Caste System was not to bring about the inter-caste dinners and the Inter-caste marriages, but to destroy the religious notions on which the Caste was founded,” he also written in an undelivered speech titled Annihilation of Caste.

Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Quotes
- “The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man’s life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise, both will wither and die.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Democracy is not merely a form of government. It is primarily a mode of associated living, of conjoint communicated experience. It is essentially an attitude of respect and reverence towards fellow men.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “That the caste system must be abolished if the Hindu society is to be reconstructed on the basis of equality, goes without saying. Untouchability has its roots in the caste system. They cannot expect the Brahmins to rise in revolt against the caste system. Also, we cannot rely upon the non-Brahmins and ask them to fight our battle.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “My social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: liberty, equality, and fraternity. Let no one, however, say that I have borrowed by philosophy from the French Revolution. I have not. My philosophy has roots in religion and not in political science. I have derived them from the teachings of my Master, the Buddha.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Caste may be bad. Caste may lead to conduct so grossly as to be called man’s inhumanity to man. All the same, it must be recognized that the Hindus observe Caste not because they are inhuman or wrong-headed. They observe Caste because they are deeply religious.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Political democracy cannot last unless there lies at the base of it social democracy. What does social democracy mean? It means a way of life which recognizes liberty, equality, and fraternity as the principles of life.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Religion must mainly be a matter of principles only. It cannot be a matter of rules. The moment it degenerates into rules, it ceases to be a religion, as it kills responsibility which is an essence of the true religious act.” – B. R. Ambedkar
- “Why is it that a large majority of Hindus do not inter-dine and do not inter-marry? Why is it that your cause is not popular? There can be only one answer to this question, and it is that inter-dining and inter-marriage are repugnant to the beliefs and dogmas which the Hindus regard as sacred.” – B. R. Ambedkar
