PASSAGE No. 8(12 Marks)

8. Read the following passage carefully:


Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, is referred to

as the architect of the Indian Constitution. Dr. Ambedkar was born in a community

which had suffered oppression for many centuries and were treated as ‘untouchables’.

However, this did not prevent him from realizing his dreams. The struggle he had faced

in his life had only strengthened him.

At a time when untouchability was the norm, it was because of the foresight of Maharaja

Sayaji Rao of Baroda that Dr. Ambedkar was able to enter Elphinstone College in

Bombay and after graduation join the Baroda State Service. Later, the Maharaja, who

was sending some students to the USA for higher studies at the Columbia University,

included Dr. Ambedkar among them. Subsequently, Dr. Ambedkar moved to the United

Kingdom and studied at the London School of Economics and was subsequently

awarded the degree of Barrister-at-Law by Gray’s Inn.

Though Dr. Ambedkar has contributed in many walks of life as a scholar, journalist,

economist, activist, legal luminary, social reformer and political leader; his biggest and

most important contribution was in his role as the Chairman of the Drafting Committee

of the Constitution of India.

After India’s Independence on August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime

Minister of India, invited Dr. Ambedkar to be a part of his Cabinet as the nation’s first

Law Minister. He accepted the same and on August 29, 1947 Dr. Ambedkar was

appointed as the Chairman of the Drafting Committee.
