Google dedicated its doodle on Tuesday to Dr BR Ambedkar's 124th birth anniversary.

Popularly known as Babasaheb, the Indian jurist, politician, economist and social reformer, who was born in 1841 in Mhow, Madhya Pradesh, was known for his campaigns against social discrimination against dalits, women and labour.

Dr Ambedkar, who had inspired the Modern Buddhist Movement, had died in his sleep on 6 December 1956 at his home in Delhi.
