Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Monday that his government would hold a comprehensive musical play on the life and works of Dr BR Ambedkar, chief architect of the country’s Constitution. It will begin to be shown on 5 January next year at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium and there will be 50 shows of it.

Kejriwal made the announcement on the occasion of Mahaparinirvan Diwas, the death anniversary of Dr Ambedkar, who endeavoured for the Dalits’ socio-economic uplift throughout his life.

In an online media briefing today (6 December is observed every year as Mahaparinirvan Diwas in honour of Ambedkar), Kejriwal said, “Dr Ambedkar strived hard for the socio-economic uplift of the Dalits and the eradication of untouchability in India. He came from a very poor family background but acquired two PhD degrees from foreign
universities. He got a master’s degree in 64 subjects, becoming, perhaps, the most educated Indian till now. He was well-versed in nine languages and maintained a huge personal library. I want all children and adults of the country to know who he was.”
