It was a moment of pride for India as, on Sunday, a statue of Dr. Ambedkar was inaugurated in a Maryland suburb in Washington.

As we all know, Dr. Ambedkar is recognized as the principal architect of the Indian Constitution. He was a remarkable individual who dedicated his life to uplifting the underprivileged and women in India. With a remarkable 32 degrees to his name, he is rightfully celebrated as the SYMBOL OF KNOWLEDGE.

This significant event took place on Sunday when the statue of Dr. Ambedkar was unveiled. Notably, this statue is touted as the tallest statue of Dr. Ambedkar outside India, standing at an impressive height of 19 feet, and it is named the “Statue of Equality.” This choice reflects Dr. Ambedkar’s unwavering commitment to equality among all sections of society, especially in the face of ongoing global inequalities.

At the event, more than 500 Indian-Americans from the US, India, and other countries were in attendance. Throughout the event, the echoes of “JAY BHIM” chants resonated in the air.

The architect behind this statue is Ram Sutar, a renowned artist who also crafted the Statue of Unity, dedicated to Sardar Patel, in Gujarat.

Deelip Mhaske, based in New York, and a prominent leader of the Ambedkarite movement in the US, emphasized that the “Statue of Equality” represents 1.4 billion Indians and 4.5 million Indian Americans. He conveyed that they received congratulatory messages from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar. Furthermore, he stated, “This statue will not only inspire millions of Indians residing in the US but also all communities, including Black, Hispanic, and others. It marks a historic step towards unifying the Indian-American diaspora and working towards making India a superpower, not only in technology but also in social justice.”

Indeed, this unveiling is a significant stride in projecting India’s image on the global stage as a nation committed to building an egalitarian society and promoting social justice.
