Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (b. 14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, was one of the architects of the Indian Constitution. He was born to Bhimabai Sakpal and Ramji on 14 April 1891 in Madhya Pradesh.

Babasaheb was a well-known politician, economist, social reformer and an eminent jurist. Ambedkar’s efforts to eradicate the social evils like untouchablity and caste restrictions were remarkable. The leader, throughout his life, fought for the rights of the dalits and other socially backward classes. Ambedkar was appointed as the nation’s first Law Minister in the Cabinet of Jawaharlal Nehru. Bhimrao Ambedkar was appointed as the chairman of the constitution drafting committee. Ambedkar emphasized on the construction of a virtual bridge between the classes of the society. According to him, it would be difficult to maintain the unity of the country if the difference among the classes were not met. He was posthumously awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honor in 1990.
