[ZESTCaste] A statue that fails to resemble Ambedkar!

A statue that fails to resemble Ambedkar!

Posted on Jan 14th, 2012 and filed under Special Report.

UDUPI : It has been reported that the newly installed statue of Dr BR
Ambedkar, the Father of

the Indian Constitution, in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office
complex at Manipal, does

not resemble the towering personality.

There are many who argue that this was a great insult made to
Ambedkar. Some even make

a mockery by saying "It is as good as the administration wanting to
have a Ganapathi statue

ending up with the Hanuman statue."

The bronze statue of Ambedkar was unveiled by the district minister
during the inaugural of

Rajathadri. People are wondering if the leaders, elected
representatives as well as officials have

taken a good look at the statue which resembles a frail looking man.
