Dr Meenakshi Kulkarni guided the students on change management, positive attitude, etiquettes and manners.

 When Nation Next spoke to Harsha Jharia, she said, “Organising Ms LAD contest every year gives me immense satisfaction even though it involves three months of rigorous training of the students on better communication skills, confidence building, grooming, styling, fitness with Zumba, group discussions, brain storming sessions, etc. The best part about this contest is that unlike other pageants, Ms LAD doesn’t have beauty as its criteria. It’s solely talent based. Because of this, I have been seeing a positive change in the contestants since last 10 years. We’ve seen these girls getting selected in campus interviews and attaining success in their respective careers.”

The BR Ambedkar you didn’t know… | BR Ambedkar facts | BR Ambedkar history

Mahaparinirvan Din 2022 is marked as the death anniversary of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar on December 6. He eradicated untouchability and promoted gender equality in India. Watch to know more about him.

6 दिसंबर 1956 में डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकर का परिनिर्वाण हुआ था. आज मुंबई के चैत्यभूमि जहां उनका परिनिर्वाण place है वहां पर पूरे india से उनके दर्शन और उनको श्रद्धांजलि देने के लिए हजारों की तादाद में उनके followers पहुंचते है. 14 October 1956 को नागपुर के दीक्षाभूमि में लाखों लोगों को बौद्ध धम्म की दीक्षा देने के डेढ़ महीने बाद ही उनका परिनिर्वाण हुआ था. आज हम बाबासाहेब के उन rights की बात करेंगे, जो women को दिए गए है.

बाबासाहेब ने India में ऐसा revolution किया, जिसके कारण सैकड़ों सालों की ग़ुलामी और छुआछूत से backward classes के लोगों को मुक्ति मिली. बाबासाहेब के इस revolution को इतिहास में सबसे बड़े revolution में से एक माना जाता है. उन्होंने सभी के लिए equality की बात कही और सभी को समान rights constitution में दिए. बाबासाहेब ने women empowerment की बात सबसे पहले कही थी.महिलाओं को कानूनी रूप से अधिकार दिलाने और खासकर ancestral property में हिस्सा देने की बात बाबा साहेब आंबेडकर ने ही की थी.

बाबा साहब ने Constitution में तीन major बातें liberty, equality और fraternity की बात की, जिसमें उन्होंने fraternity को सबसे अहम माना. बाबा साहब भारत की तमाम महिलाओं के liberator
हैं. लेकिन अफसोस इस बात का है कि आंबेडकर को कई classes की महिलाएं ही अपना नहीं मानती हैं. बाबासाहेब ने अपने life में सभी articles के माध्यम से womens की problems को पुरज़ोर तरीके से उठाया था .Riddle of Women, women and counter-revolution, rise and fall of Hindu woman ऐसे कई articles बाबासाहेब ने समय–समय पर लिखे थे. हिन्दू कोड बिल की मांग को महिलाएं कैसे भूल सकती हैं, जिसके ना लागू होने के कारण बाबा साहब अपने मंत्री पद तक को छोड़ देते हैं. बाबासाहेब कहते हैं “मैं किसी भी समाज की तरक्की उस समाज की महिलाओ की तरक्की में देखता हुं.“ जिस समय india में लड़कियों को पढ़ाना भी गलत समझा जाता था और बेटों को ही पढ़ाया जाता था, उस समय कई बड़े -बड़े नेता भी लड़कियों को education और property देने के विरोध में थे. उस दौरान बाबासाहेब लड़कियों को बेटों की तरह ही पढ़ाने और कम उम्र में लड़कियों की शादी न करने की बात अपने articles में कहते थे. बाबासाहेब ने sc,st , obc सभी को अधिकार दिए, freedom of speech उन्हीं की देन है.

नागपुर और मुंबई से उनके followers का ख़ास रिश्ता रहा है और दोनों ही जगहों से लोग emotionally जुड़े हुए है. नागपुर जहां उन्होंने बौद्ध धम्म की दीक्षा ली और मुंबई जहां बाबासाहब ने अपनी अंतिम सांस ली. आज के दिन मुंबई के चैत्यभूमि में मायें अपने छोटे बच्चों को गोद में उठाकर, जिन बुजुर्गो को चलना नहीं होता है, वे अपने बच्चों के कंधे पर हाथ रखकर, बुजुर्ग महिलाएं हाथ में लकड़ी के सहारे सभी बाबासाहेब के दर्शन करने मुंबई पहुंचते है.

Nation Next की तरफ से बाबासाहेब के परिनिर्वाण दिन पर उन्हें भावपूर्ण श्रद्धांजलि
