The Alchemist Essay

604 words - 3 pages

Bharat Ratna awardee Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar was our first minister of law & justice proclaimed by Gandhiji. Babasaheb Ambedkar was an Indian jurist, a politician, philosopher, and an economist, who was banned to study in a high profile school just because he was born in lower caste. That sarcasm provoked him for true justice and transformations and that common man became the principal architect of our 'Constitution of India'. On 26th of January our constitution came into force and India became ‘The Bharat Ghanrajya’. Ambedkar resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:
“JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and of the ...view middle of the document...

After the independence he also became the Chairman of the ‘Constitution Drafting Committee’ and they produced such a complete and admirable constitution which not only succeeded in giving a viable democracy to India but also succeeded in maintaining the unity of diversified Indian culture. But even today communal riots are major cause of antitheism. Baba Saheb dedicated his life to teach that humanity is our dharma, and all the ancient and sacred religions are built to teach us how to be a better human, not to dominate one or make us apart.

Baba Saheb gave the constitution but today it also does not resemble a viable democracy. Baba Saheb said that, “The constitution, I offered may be good or bad, it will depend on how the men in office use it”. It explains that “However good a Constitution may be, if the executors fail to deliver, it may prove to be a bad one, and if the executors are good enough, however bad the constitution may be, it will definitely prove to be good.” Today our governing system has become inconsistent and we need a reformist like him to affirm and consolidate our government. His works are the evidences of the depth of his wisdom and ethics.

Today India is encircled with odds where development is just some effect-less word. Ambedkar was also an economist, and he proved the importance of price stability than exchange stability and this helped to emerge our own currency ‘Rupee.’ He promoted the birth control rate to develop the economy and also emphasised on equal rights for women for economic development. He was just a man who did these many outstanding works and today we are 123 crore citizens with largest youth number. Yet we are lacking a place in competitive world market. India's contribution to the global output has increased but it still remains at a modest level with no sign of a major increase in quantity or quality. Baba Saheb is a great role model for what sort of things we can do to become economically strong and socially just and help to emerge India as a global leader.
