Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, the father of the Indian Constitution, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician, and social reformer. Babasaheb, as he was commonly known, is remembered for his Dalit Buddhist movement and for fighting against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits). Every year, India observes December 6th as Mahaparinirvan Divas to mark his death anniversary. On his 67th death anniversary, tune in on Audible to listen to these five inspiring audiobooks to commemorate his memory and uphold the values he firmly believed in:
