AGARTALA, Dec 6 (TIWN): Father of Indian Constitution, the most important figure remembered for India's integrity Dr B R Ambedkar is being remembered today across the nation. Along with whole nation, in Tripura also this day has been observed with full enthusiasm to mark "equality" and all the political parties leaving no stone unturned to take mileage from Ambedkar death anniversary. CPI-M, BJP and their student wings have observed the day across the state, whereas CPI-M's massive rally is at 3 pm with slogans of equality. But when BJP Govt has prohibited the decade long festival at South Tripura "Sanghati Fair" on Babri mosque demolition day, it's important to remember what Dr B R Ambedkar said about his concept of religion. One of his famous quotes is, "I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity". Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, is a celebrated leader, who flagged the ‘Constitution of India’. He was a well known statesman who fought for the rights of the Dalits and other socially backward classes.

Few of his famous quotes are :

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

“Law and order are the medicine of the body politic and when the body politic gets sick, medicine must be administered.”

“Be Educated, Be Organised and Be Agitated”

“I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity”

“Life should be great rather than long”.

“If I find the constitution being misused, I shall be the first to burn it.”

“Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence”.

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

“We must stand on our own feet and fight as best as we can for our rights. So carry on your agitation and organize your forces. Power and prestige will come to you through struggle”.

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

“Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.”

12. “Every man who repeats the dogma of Mill that one country is no fit to rule another country must admit that one class is not fit to rule another class.”

“The relationship between husband and wife should be one of closest friends.” 

“Political tyranny is nothing compared to the social tyranny and a reformer who defies society is a more courageous man than a politician who defies Government.”
