Ambedkar Jayanti

On April 14, 2017, Ambedkar Jayanti (birthday of Dr BR Ambedkar) was celebrated at the Disha Campus. Around 25 people participated in it. The programme began with a song titled galat mat kadam uthao, soch kar chalo vichar kar chalo (do not take false steps, think and ponder before making any move) sung by Disha team. On this occasion everyone put floral wreath on the picture of Dr BR Ambedkar and discussed his life and struggles.

Mr KN Tiwari, Director of Disha, spoke about the difficulties faced by Dr BR Ambedkar during his life. He informed that at that time Dalits faced massive discrimination and Dr Ambedkar attained his education with great difficulties. He was discriminated upon by his fellow high caste students and teachers, yet he attained very high education like Ph D, D Lit and Bar at Law, etc. After his studies he fought for the equal rights of Dalits and backward communities and was the chief architect of the Constitution of India.
