A civil service dedicated to the cause of society and capable of transforming unequal and oppressive hierarchies into a perfect equalitarian system is the need of the hour.

A Day to Rewind History: Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Scholarships Award Function

(Message from Dhammabhoomi, Palwal)

On 21st July 1913, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar entered Columbia University, with the help of the Scholarship given by Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III. With that help he got the opportunity to take up higher education. Since 99 years, no similar event has happened. It was the lack of our efforts. After analyzing our education history, we have decided to take up the initiative to provide scholarships to Needy and Meritorious Students, with the hope that through this scholarship they will make their futures bright and pay back to society like Babasaheb. This was the dream of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.
