Ambedkar Jayanti celebrated across Marathwada

Only a day ago, the police had sounded an alert across Uttar Pradesh for possible attempts to damage the statues of the Dalit stalwart and the chief architect of India's constitution ahead of his birth anniversary on April 14.

Amid incidents of vandalism across India, that started with razing of a Lenin statue in Tripura, a statue of BR Ambedkar was found to be locked in an iron cage in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun district.

"I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved", Dr Ambedkar had said, as quoted in The Ultimate Book of Quotations.
