Honorable Principal, Vice President, Teachers and my dear friends – My salutations to all of you!
Today I welcome all of you to this speech ceremony. It gives me immense pleasure to address this speech in front of all of you. As you all know that we have gathered here on the eve of Ambedkar Jayanti to pay tribute to Baba Saheb Ambedkar. His full name was Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar and he was born on 14 April 1891 in Mhow, India, which is a city in the present-day state of Madhya Pradesh. It is a very important day for every Indian. His father was Ramji Maloji Sakpal and mother was Bhimbai. People affectionately call him by the name of ‘Babasaheb’.
When he was five years old, he lost his mother. He went to Mumbai to complete his education, from there he completed his Bachelor of Arts (BA) education and then went to America for his further studies. He then joined Columbia University and obtained his Masters and PhD degrees from England and returned to India in the year 1923.
In India, he began his practice in the High Courts of Bombay. Along with doing social work, he also explained the importance of education to the people. He inspired the people to fight for their rights and to end the caste system. He also wrote a book on “Annihilation of Caste”, in which he discussed the serious effects of discrimination on the basis of caste, class, caste and gender. Due to his active participation in social work, people started addressing him as ‘Babasaheb’.
He played an important role in preparing the Constitution of India, that is why he is also known as the author of the Indian Constitution. At that time the most important issue in the Indian Constitution was the reservation system, the main objective of which was to improve the life of the weaker section of the society and their lifestyle as well as take them towards further upliftment.
Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar is remembered with great respect in India for his contribution towards social work and upliftment of the people. In fact, 14 April Ambedkar Jayanti is celebrated as an annual festival not only in our country but also in other parts of the world. Every year this day is a public holiday all over India.
On this day, processions are taken out by his followers at Deekshabhoomi in Nagpur, as well as Chaitya Bhoomi in Mumbai. On his birthday, tributes are paid to him by special persons such as the President, Prime Minister as well as major political parties. In his honor, this day is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over the country, especially by the Depressed Classes. Along with this, a large number of people gather and take out tableaux in our country to garland their idols and pay tribute to their exemplary personality.
So let us all celebrate this important day with enthusiasm and remember all the work done for the overall development of our country.

Ambedkar ji was born on 14 April 1891 in Maho (military headquarters of the war) of Madhya Pradesh state, he devoted his whole life for the upliftment of Dalits and Untouchables. He was a man of great personality, so before we pay tribute to such a great man, let us get some information about his life and achievements.
After studying law in the United States of America, he came back to India as a learned master and contributed his visionary skills to build his country. He also published several magazines to spread awareness about political and civil rights as well as social freedom of the untouchables in India. Along with untouchability, he also contributed in ending the caste system. The whole nation remembers him for his incomparable work and for launching the Dalit Buddhist movement. Apart from being the architect of the Indian Constitution, he also held the post of Indian Law Minister.
He was awarded the Bharat Ratna Award, the highest civilian award, in the year 1990 for his highest achievements in India. April 14, his birthday is celebrated as a public holiday across the country as Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti. Apart from this, his memorial memorial has also been built at his house at 26 Alipur Road in Delhi.
In fact, on this day various activities like rallies and cultural programs are organized by various government, non-government and Dalit organizations in the memory of that great man. On this day mass programs, speech programs and Dalit fairs are organized in different states and capitals. The interesting thing is that hundreds and thousands of bookshops are set up there especially for selling books. He had given the message of “Educate, organize, fight” to his supporters.
So let us all come together to make this Jayanti even more special with our prayers and dedication. We will fall short of words to praise his achievements and contributions as the great Indian political leader, historian, lawmaker, philosopher, anthropologist, economist, lecturer, editor, teacher, revolutionary, influential writer and Buddhist revivalist.

Honorable Guest, Principal, Teachers and my dear students – My salutations to all of you!
I wholeheartedly welcome everyone to today’s program organized in the honor of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. April 14, as you all know that on this day Babasaheb Ambedkar was born, he devoted his whole life towards national and social causes. Before we begin this special day and proceed with our ceremonial rituals, I would like to present to you all a brief speech on Ambedkar Jayanti and an example of the relevance of this day.
Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti is considered no less than a festival, it is celebrated every year with love and gaiety not only in India but also in some other places outside India. Dr. Ambedkar was born on April 14, 1891 and from 2015 onwards, this day was celebrated as a government holiday across the country.
On this day processions and tableaux are organized by the followers of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar at places like Diksha Bhoomi Nagpur and Chaityabhoomi Mumbai. On this day, the Prime Minister, President and prominent leaders of other political parties pay respects and tributes to the statue of Baba Saheb Ambedkar located in the Parliament of India, New Delhi. Mainly this day is celebrated by the Dalit people all over the world with joy and gaiety. On this day, you will get to see more excitement around the local statues of Dr. Ambedkar.
Dr B. R. Ambedkar, also known as Babasaheb, actively contributed to various campaigns and movements for the upliftment of Dalits and to end social discrimination on the basis of caste, class and gender. It is because of his great contribution towards the social cause that he has been able to get a special place in the hearts of the Indian people, especially the underprivileged communities. He actually organized a huge force in our country in the form of Dalit Buddhist movement, due to which he came to be seen as a follower of the downtrodden class. Shri Bhimrao Ambedkar once said, “I measure the progress of a community by the progress that the women of that community have achieved” – a quote from The Ultimate Book of Quotations.
In the year 1990, Babasaheb was posthumously awarded India’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna.
He was a man of great personality, he had a vision for the future of India and during that time there was no other person who could match his knowledge and ideas.
- making of indian constitution
- India’s agricultural and industrial progress
- Establishment of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in the year 1934
So let us all come together on this important day to remember all his good deeds, which we will rarely see in current Indian politicians. I wish that if we can get such good and loyal people in our Indian government, then India will not see a huge decline in the work of ethics and political interference.
That’s all I had to say.
……Jai Bhim Jai Bharat……
