A wonderful article by Maitriveer-Nagarjuna to mark an important day remembering Babasaheb Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and the millions he helped lead out of caste oppression. The struggle continues! 

On the 14th of April every year, the followers of Babasaheb all over the world will celebrate the Jayanti with joy and festivity. It is well-known fact that Babasaheb Dr.B.R.Ambedkar was against hero worship and blind faith in any individual.
