A inordinately late decision. It took many years for our leaders and those in Upper House and Lower House to decide who Dr Ambedkar was and is, what was his contribution to frame the base of independent India's laws and rules, what was his contribution to knit close a nation's people and culture in one against heavy odds and diversity and what honour he could be given amongst those who honestly wished to see India independent and take form to be a budding super-power in the world now. If Mahatma Gandhi is considered to be the father of the National in physical sense, Dr Ambedkar is considered to the father of India's soul. The question is had Mahatmaji's been given the present position if he was not assassinated ? Or would he have been cast aside in the similar fate of Nelson Mandela ? Or Afgan Gandhi ? Or Mujib-ur-Rehman ? What way a nation can pay homage to its Creators,apart from declaring their birthdays a Public Holiday ? Yes, Dr Ambedkar is equally to be honoured with Mahatma Gan ...more
