Dr. B. R. Ambedkar 14 April 1891-6 December 1956 ), popularly also known as Babasaheb, was an Indian jurist, political leader, philosopher, anthropologist, historian, orator, economist, teacher, and editor. He was also the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of the Indian Constitution. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar was Born into a poor Mahar family, which was considered by Untouchable caste. Ambedkar campaigned against social discrimination, the system of Chaturvarna - the categorization of Hindu society into four varnas- and the Hindu caste system. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar converted to Buddhism and is also credited with providing a spark for the transformation of hundreds of thousands of Dalits or untouchables to Theravada Buddhism. Ambedkar was posthumously awarded Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award, in 1990. At birth, " Sakpal " was the surname of Bhimrao, and " Ambavade " was the name of his native village. To avoid socio-economic discrimination and the ill-treatment of the higher classes of society, Bhimrao changed his surname from " Sakpal " to " Ambedkar " with the help of a Brahmin teacher, who had great faith in him. Since then, Bhimrao and his family used the title, Ambavedkar or Ambedkar.
