On this day, people across India, especially followers of Ambedkar and members of the Dalit community, pay tribute to him by organizing events, discussions, and cultural programs. Additionally, various government and non-government organizations conduct special programs to highlight the principles and ideals for which Dr Ambedkar stood.
