#AmbedkarLongLive: Twitter Fondly Remembers BR Ambedkar on His 63rd Death Anniversary

One of the most revered flagbearers of India's Dalit movement, Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar famously known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, was a revolutionary face who played the chief role in drafting the Indian Constitution.

Also known as the Father of Indian Constitution, he played a vital role in conceptualising the Constitutional draft, which today governs the life of every Indian citizen.

Being a Dalit under a complex Hindu caste structure, Ambedkar's circumstances pushed him to have a strong footing and bring about a change in an authoritative system, which privileged only "upper-caste" Indians.

This Friday, December 6 marked the 63rd death anniversary of the visionary since his passing in 1956. Fans, followers and admirers of Ambedkar took to Twitter to commemorate him and remind the world about some of his political ideologies.
