Dr.B.R.AMBEDKAR
A Life of Fulfilment

Ambedkar’s entire life was dedicated to one purpose – securing justice and equality to those people who are called ‘untouchalbes’. He had said many times "God will spare me till I complete my work for the ‘untouchables’. "He lived to see ‘untouchability’ declared a crime. The ‘untouchables’ had secured political equality. They should enjoy social equality also – this feeling was beginning to grow in the country.

As early as in 1951, Ambedkar’s health had begun to fail. Yet he continued to work saying that he would not succumb to ill health when there was work to be done.

On 16th December 1956 he breathed his last. Thousand and thousands of people watched the funeral procession and expressed their sorrow and admiration. Five hundred thousand people witnessed the last rites.

Ambedkar was very fond of books. He had set apart a part of his house "Rajagriha’ for them. When he suffered from an eye trouble, he was particularly unhappy that he could not read. Whenever he went abroad, he used to buy books. Once he bought more than two thousand books in New York. "untoucalbes’, ‘Buddha and His Gospel’, ‘Revolution and Counter – Revolution in India’, ‘Buddha and Karl Marx’ and ‘The Riddle of Hinduism’ – these are some of the books he wrote. His books show how widely he had read, how he had gathered information, and how he could think for himself.
