Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar also known as the father of the Indian constitution was an Indian jurist, economist, and Dalit leader. He headed the committee drafting the Constitution of India from the Constituent Assembly debates. He served as the Law and Justice Minister in the first cabinet of Jawaharlal Nehru. 

He was posthumously awarded India’s highest civilian honor, the ‘Bharat Ratna’ in 1990. He obtained a master’s degree in 64 subjects. Dr. Ambedkar’s life and his thoughts always inspire everyone. Here are some of the quotes by Dr. BR Ambedkar that inspire us:

“A great man is different from an eminent one in that he is ready to be the servant of the society.”

“History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them.”

“I want all people to be Indians first, Indian last and nothing else but Indians.”

"If you believe in living a respectable life, you believe in self-help which is the best help."

"I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved."

"The history of India is nothing but a history of a mortal conflict between Buddhism and Brahminism."
