Mysuru, June 13:- “The personality of Dr B R Ambedkar can’t be explained. He is a combination of multiple talents,” said former vice chancellor of Kuvempu University, Prof P Venkataramaiah.
He was speaking at a seminar organised to mark the 127th birth anniversary of Dr Ambedkar at B M Shri Hall at Manasagangothri here organised by Research Scholars’ Association of University of Mysore (UoM) on Wednesday.
“Many people have come and gone in the history of mankind. Dr Ambedkar is still valued for his contributions like Buddha and Basavanna. Observing his birthday should be a forum for us to get inspired by him. Dr Ambedkar was a scholar, economist, humanist and an excellent advocate. He is the architect of the Indian Constitution. He did a bloodless revolution in India to eradicate untouchability. He introduced a bill in the Parliament to give equal rights to women,” he said.
Seer Nijaguna Prabhu Thontadarya inaugurated the programme.
In-charge Vice Chancellor of UoM Prof T K Umesh and others were present. (MR/GK).
