हा भारत नावाचा किल्ला मजबूत केलाय साक्षात भीमाने!

या देशाची इतकी तंतोतंत नस ओळखणाऱ्या काहींच लोकांपैकी डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकर एक.

हा देश, याचा भूतकाळ, वर्तमान आणि भविष्य बाबासाहेबांनी वेळीच समजले. त्या भविष्याला स्वातंत्र्यानंतर सुरक्षित राखण्यासाठी अगदी परफेक्ट योजना बाबासाहेबांनी संविधानात करून ठेवली आहे. कितीही समाजकंटक आले, नकळतच का असेनात, त्यांना फार यश या देशाला इजा पोहचवण्यात येणार नाही. म्हणुनच खऱ्याअर्थाने ते आधुनिक भारताचे शिल्पकार आणि निर्माते आहेत!

हा भारत नावाचा किल्ला मजबूत केलाय साक्षात भीमाने!

भीम जयंतीच्या सर्वांना खूप खूप शुभेच्छा!

जय भीम!


किती तंतोतंत ते या देशाला ओळखायचे हे त्यांच्या या भाषणाच्या काही भागावरून कळेल. 

If we wish to maintain democracy not merely in form, but also in fact, what must we do?

- The first thing in my judgement we must do is to hold fast to constitutional methods of achieving our social and economic objectives.

- The second thing we must do is to observe the caution which John Stuart Mill has given to all who are interested in the maintenance of democracy, namely, not “to lay their liberties at the feet of even a great man, or to trust him with power which enable him to subvert their institutions”. 

- The third thing we must do is not to be content with mere political democracy. We must make our political democracy a social democracy as well. Political democracy cannot last unless there lies at the base of it social democracy.


We must begin by acknowledging the fact that there is complete absence of two things in Indian Society. 

- One of these is equality. 

On the social plane, we have in India a society based on the principle of graded inequality which we have a society in which there are some who have immense wealth as against many who live in abject poverty.

- The second thing we are wanting in is recognition of the principle of fraternity.

 What does fraternity mean? Fraternity means a sense of common brotherhood of all Indians – of Indians being one people. It is the principle which gives unity and solidarity to social life.


Independence is no doubt a matter of joy. But let us not forget that this independence has thrown on us great responsibilities. By independence, we have lost the excuse of blaming the British for anything going wrong. If hereafter things go wrong, we will have nobody to blame except ourselves. There is great danger of things going wrong. Times are fast changing. People including our own are being moved by new ideologies. They are getting tired of Government by the people. They are prepared to have Governments for the people and are indifferent whether it is Government of the people and by the people. If we wish to preserve the Constitution in which we have sought to enshrine the principle of Government of the people, for the people and by the people, let us resolve not to be tardy in the recognition of the evils that lie across our path and which induce people to prefer Government for the people to Government by the people, nor to be weak in our initiative to remove them. That is the only way to serve the country. I know of no better.

- Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar
