Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Jayanti

Dr.  Babasaheb Ambedkar Jayanti or Bhim Jayanti is an annual festival observed on 14th April every year to commemorate the works of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, Indian polymath and civil rights activist. It marks the birthday of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar who was born on 14th April 1891.

On 12th April 2024, Dr. Ambedkar Jayanti was celebrated at St. John International School. A special assembly was organised on this occasion which commenced with the lighting of the lamp by Principal Sr. Veena Monteiro. An introductory speech, about the life history of Dr. Ambedkar and also about the important incidents from his life, were delivered. The achievements and contributions of Dr. Ambedkar were highlighted and emphasis was laid on his writing a vast and the lengthiest Constitution of the world. His contributions to the uplift of lower caste people were also highlighted.

A display of the constitutional rights and freedom through charts and placards was held to create awareness about the Indian citizen’s rights and freedoms as conferred by the constitution.

A wonderful song performance by the choir group added to the significance of the event.

This day is not just a celebration of a life, but a tribute to the legacy of a visionary leader, a social reformer, and the architect of the Indian Constitution.
