“Freedom of mind is the real freedom. A person whose mind is not free though he may not be in chains, is a slave, not a free man. one whose mind is not free, though he may not be in prison, is a prisoner and not a free man. One whose mind is not free though alive is no better than dead. Freedom of mind is the proof of one’s existence.”

“If you study carefully you will see that Buddhism is based on reason. There is an element of flexibility inherent in it which is not found in any other religion.”

“If you study carefully you will see that Buddhism is based on reason. There is an element of flexibility inherent in it which is not found in any other religion.”

Caste is not a physical object like a wall of bricks or a line of barbed wire, which prevents the Hindus from co-mingling and which has, therefore, to be pulled down.

Caste is a notion; it is a state of the mind.

Poem on Ambedkar

Today on whose birthday, we are singing.          

To do something in life, we are learning.

By taking inspiration from which, going on the path of progress.

From heaven also, the rain continued to bless us.

Sun has gone to India, music is a teaser.

Those Yugnyaant Yugpurush Va Bhimrao Ambedkar.

Speeches of Ambedkar

1 - Social democracy - What does social democracy mean? It means a way of life that recognizes liberty, equality, and fraternity as the principles of life. These principles of liberty, equality, and fraternity are not to be treated as separate items in a trinity. They form a union of trinity in the sense that to divorce one from the other is to defeat the very purpose of democracy.

In politics, we will be recognizing the principle of one man one vote, and one vote one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, because of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value. How long shall we continue to live this life of contradictions? How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social and economic life?

If we continue to deny it for long, we will do so only by putting our political democracy in peril. We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment or else those who suffer from inequality will blow up the structure of political democracy which this Assembly has so laboriously built up.”

Liberty cannot be divorced from equality; equality cannot be divorced from liberty. Nor can liberty and equality be divorced from fraternity. Without equality, liberty would produce the supremacy of the few over the many. Equality without liberty would kill individual initiative. Without fraternity, liberty would produce the supremacy of the few over the many. Without fraternity, liberty and equality could not become a natural course of things. It would require a constable to enforce them.

We must begin by acknowledging the fact that there is a 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 some have immense wealth as against many who live in abject poverty.

2 - “On the 26th of January 1950, we are going to enter into a life of contradictions. In politics, we will have equality and in social and economic life we will have inequality.

In our social and economic life, we shall, because of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value.

How long shall we continue to live this life of contradictions?

How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social and economic life?

If we continue to deny it for long, we will do so only by putting our political democracy in peril. We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment or else those who suffer from inequality will blow up the structure of political democracy which this Assembly has so laboriously built up.”
