          Thanks Google India for Having doodle on Dr. B R Ambedkar. Its really good gesture 's on part of Google. Probably Internet could really help to es Ambedkar's pority in factual manner rather than manited TV program, which unilaterally declare Number ONE position and then comes Mr. Ambedkar. If the declared Number ONE would have been in the contest, Definitely world would have seen who is the real Number ONE.

              Dr. B R Ambedkar was a great leader and his contribution to Dalit's cause is immense. After receiving 65 years of quotas and reservations in education and jobs, today the Dalits have become lazy, disgruntled, and demand more freebies. The Dalits today hold the government as a hostage in demanding more freebies instead of working hard and striving to get real education.

                    Scheduled castes consists of a group of castes which includes some brahmin castes among others. Prominent brahmin scheduled castes include the Debnath s and Acharyas of Bengal. Similar example is present throughout India. The misconception that sc and dalit are synonymous has been promoted by a section of the media which has its vested interest.Ambedkar though he came from a dalit family worked for the upliftment of all weaker sections of society including brahmin s and women.
