REMEMBERING BABASAHEB AMBEDKAR by Advocate Aires Rodrigues
Let us not forget to pay homage today to our very adored Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, the Father of our Indian Constitution on his birth Anniversary. We need to be reminded that Dr Ambedkar who was a symbol of knowledge must never have visualized that thick skinned persons with never ending greed for Power and Wealth would ever be occupying very high Constitutional posts.
Seeing the sagging levels to which the political spectrum is stooping, we can only remind those in Power of those words of Joel Osteen “You can live your life angry, bitter, mad at somebody or even guilty, not letting go of your own mistakes, but you won't receive the good things God has in store”.
And when will our Politicians be inspired by what the great American writer Alfred Armand Montapert had to say “The main source of our wealth is goodness. The affections and the generous qualities that God admires in a world full of greed”.
The final thoughts of this anniversary of Dr. Ambedkar are best remembered in his wise thoughts; ‘’If you ask me my ideal would be the society based on liberty, equality and fraternity’’. ‘’One cannot have any respect or regard for men who take the position of the reformer and then refuse to see the logical consequences of that position, let alone following them out in action’’.
