भारतरत्न डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकर यांच्या महापरिनिर्वाण दिनानिमित्त राष्ट्रपती, पंतप्रधानांनी बाबासाहेबांना वाहिली आदरांजली!
Cheers!Three cheers!The Bahujan politicians,the Ambedkarites and the untouchable have not to remember Dr.BR Ambedkar as Ambedkarite ATM is the source of all political equations and the State celebrtes!
However,in Mumbai, glowing tributes were paid to Ambedkar at his memorial 'Chaityabhoomi' in the Dadar area, as thousands of his followers gathered there. Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis were among those who paid tributes to the Dalit icon.
Cheers!Three cheers!The Prime Minister said that while his contributions towards social justice have been recognised, his economic thoughts and vision are still not fully understood, and these need to be appreciated.
What economic thoughts ,Mr Prime Minister?
Thus,PresiPresident Pranab Mukherjee, Vice President Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders on Sunday remembered Babasaheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar on his 60th death anniversary, which is being observed as 'Mahaparinirvan Diwas.'
Mr. Mukherjee, Mr. Ansari and Mr. Modi offered floral tribute at the Dalit mascot's statue in Parliament House lawns.
"Remembering Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar on his Punya Tithi," Mr. Modi posted on Twitter along with a photograph showing him and the Ambedkar's statue.
My respected friend Dr Anand Teltumbde explained it time and again!But I am tempted to ask this question again as Dr BR Ambedkar is remembered in reference to his economic thoughts by those who do everything to disinvest everything,privatize everything as Babasaheb insisted on nationalization of resources and land reforms!It seems quite contradictory.
It is amusing that Indian politics has been reduced to religious blind nationalism of hatred and intensive caste war as the Nation has become an infinite hunting ground for foreign capital and foreign interest.While in his first speech on the resolution moved by Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru in the constituent assembly presided by Dr.Rajendra Prasad to finalize the framework of Indian constitution,Babasaheb spoke and explained the idea of India and it had been social,political and economic equality and justice.Yes,it was the destination and future of India,the idea of India that our freedom fighters and national leaders opted for Republic of India!
Where do we stand now.No bodyseems to be interested in Baba Saheb`s agenda of caste annihiliation which should have been the agenda of Hindutva if the flagbearers of Hindutva had cared for Hindu majority demography and Hindu religion!It is the same philosophy of unification which reminds us the Panchasheel and Buddhist India which streamlined and liberalized Hindutva and Swami Vivekanand referred to that Hindutva which stood ahead just because of Bhakti movement during Islamic Rule and Bengal Renaissance in nineteenth Century rooted in tolerance and diversity!
Pardon! It is not the key to open the doors of power sharing in dynasty hegemony rule at all!The destination to Equality and Justice would not be achieved by economic reforms as these reforms exclude further!Rather these reforms opt for genocide culture and ethnic cleansing as we have seen in seventies and eighties amidst refugee influx from outside and within because of transfer of power at the cost of partition followed by infinite displacement all on the name of development and growth!
What the economic thoughts of Babasaheb Dr.Ambedkar had to do with economic reforms and free market economy,I may not understand!
PM releases commemorative coins
Mr. Modi released two commemorative coins of Rs. 125 and Rs. 10 denomination as part of the 125th birth anniversary year celebrations of B.R. Ambedkar.
The coins were issued on his death anniversary, which is being observed as "Mahaparinirvan Divas of Babasaheb Ambedkar".
Addressing a gathering at his residence, the Prime Minister said that there were only a few individuals who remain alive in public consciousness, even 60 years after their death.
He said the more one recalls Ambedkar's thoughts, in the context of issues currently faced by India, "the more we come to respect his vision and his approach to inclusiveness".
The Prime Minister said that while his contributions towards social justice have been recognised, his economic thoughts and vision are still not fully understood, and these need to be appreciated.
Mr. Modi said Ambedkar and the Constitution of India should always be discussed and talked about in this country, and the observance of Constitution Day on November 26, was a step in that direction.
Mind you,after releasing the commemorative coins, the Prime Minister termed Ambedkar as a visionary and a profound thinker and said his economic thought and vision were still not fully understood and needed to be appreciated, even though his contribution towards social justice have been recognised.
"Our government is leaving no stone unturned to fulfil the vision & dreams of Dr Ambedkar to create a prosperous & inclusive India," Modi said after the function in which Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Thawar Chand Gehlot were also present.
Thus,the Prime Minister also highlighted Ambedkar's vision on women empowerment, federalism, economy and its relevance.
"We are aware of Dr Ambedkar's contributions towards social justice but Babasaheb's thoughts on economic issues are equally enlightening. ... Dr Ambedkar will always be remembered as an original & profound thinker. His views on inclusiveness & harmony continue to inspire us," he said.
Modi said Ambedkar had faced lot of humiliation, yet his patriotism reflected in his work.
He appreciated Ambedkar's vision on subjects such as women empowerment, India's federal structure, finance and education, a press release issued by Prime Minister's Office said.
Moreover,Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Thawar Chand Gehlot were present on the occasion.
