Bharatha Ratna Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, reverentially and most affectionately called ‘Babasaheb Ambedkar’occupies a prominent place in the annals of India’s social history. He determined as a fighter and a deep scholar has made significant efforts to lead the society on the path of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. He thought that “For a successful revolution it is not enough that there is discontent. What is required is a profound and thorough conviction of the justice, necessity and importance of political and social rights.”He liked the religion that teaches liberty, equality and fraternity.
The present paper is an attempt to highlight Dr. Ambedkar's contribution for social revolution in India.He has not only prepared the ground for a silent revolution, but has also played a key role in the drafting of the Constitution of India which has set the terms for the development of the world largest democracy. Dr. Ambedkar, as his last message cautioned the pseudo – champions of downtrodden; I could carry on the caravan and if you could carry it forward alright? Otherwise keep it there where I put. don’t pull it back’. Today, Dr. Ambedkar is loved by all those who love untouchables and hate untouchability
