Dr B R Ambedkar has made a number of contributions to the society and we remain grateful to him, said noted wildlife photographer Krupakar.
He was speaking during the Ambedkar Mahaparinirvan day organised by Dr B R Ambedkar Research and Extension Centre in the city on Wednesday. Krupakar recalled the powerful thoughts of the Ambedkar and said, “Ambedkar fought his whole life for the rights of dalits and other oppressed classes in the society. He provided constitutional guarantees and protections for a range of civil liberties. He is a great leader that the nation witnessed and his contribution to the society can’t be expressed through words.”
On the occasion, a documentary titled Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar directed by Jabbar Patel was screened. Portrays of Ambedkar were displayed on the occasion.
Writer Moodnakudu Chinnaswami, photographer Senani and principal of Mahabodhi School, Narendrakumar and others were present.
