Dr. Ambedkar’s book “Buddha and His Dhamma” created world record!


A book in English on the Buddha’s life by Dr B R Ambedkar, which was translated into Hindi and etched into a stainless steel tome weighing a whopping 2,000 kg, was on Wednesday inaugurated at a public event at the GIC ground in Agra.

The 24-page book has the whole text of the 400-page ‘Buddha and His Dhamma’ and a huge crowd of 35,000 people came at the inauguration, which was done during an event called ‘Dhamma Kaarvan’.

Each of the book’s pages is 9.2 feet high, 5.5 feet wide and 2 inches thick and about 100kgs in weight. Not surprisingly, its makers have applied to the Guinness World Records as the ‘world’s heaviest book’.

Over two lakh words of the book, translated in Hindi by Siddharth Swaroop Buddh, have been engraved on steel. The makers claim that no book has been made of steel so far which is not fixed at one place and can be transported anywhere.

What Dr. Ambedkar said on Constitution at Parliament – A clip from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Movie


“I feel that the constitution is workable, it is flexible and it is strong enough to hold the country together both in peacetime and in wartime. Indeed, if I may say so, if things go wrong under the new Constitution, the reason will not be that we had a bad Constitution. What we will have to say is that Man was vile.”

Movie on Ramabai Bhimrao Ambedkar – Ramai


This movie is a biography of Ramabai Bhimrao Ambedkar also known as Ramabai wife of Dr. Babasaheb. Ramabai lost her parents at a very young age and brought up her two young brothers all alone. She was brought to Mumbai by her uncles and married off to Bhimrao Ambedkar at the young age. Ramabai’s father-in-law and brother-in-law passed away soon after her marriage. Around the same time, Bhimrao left for London after getting a scholarship for higher studies, leaving the responsibility of running the household on Rambai. Despite all the hardships, Rambai kept her husband motivated and also sent him pocket money regularly. Losing her infant children one by one did not stop Ramabai from standing like a rock behind her husband’s mission of uplifting the underprivileged classes of the country.
