Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar

A Google Doodle today for the 124th anniversary of the birth of BR Ambedkar, one of the leaders of the independence movement in India, who was in charge of the drafting of the constitution of the Indian republic and who fought for the rights of people on the outside of the caste system. As the Guardian article linked to notes, “He worked with Mahatma Gandhi to ensure all people were treated as equal parts of the electorate and was asked to be the first law minister in the newly independent country.”
