What Dr. Ambedkar said on Independence Day (15th August)

“It is not enough to have just a politically independent India. What is also needed is to have an Indian nation where every citizen will have religious and political rights, so that every person will have equal opportunity to develop.”


“Independence is no doubt a matter of joy. But let us not forget that this independence has thrown on us greater responsibilities. By independence, we have lost the excuse of blaming the British for anything going wrong. If hereafter things go wrong, we will have nobody to blame except ourselves. There is a greater danger of things going wrong. Times are fast changing.”


“There is no nation of Indians in the real sense of the world, it is yet to be created. In believing we are a nation, we are cherishing a great delusion. How can people divided into thousand of castes be a nation? The sooner we realise that we are not yet a nation, in a social and psychological sense of the world, the better for us.”

  1. Shekhar Bodhakar

    Dr Ambedkar did not say this on 15th August. This is an extract from the speech he delivered on 25th November 1949 in which he very clearly says that on 26th January India WILL BE an INDEPENDENT COUNTRY. 15th August is called “Appointment Day” according to the Indian Independence Act. 26th January is India’s independence day.
