THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: State Institute of Languages has contributed 40
volumes of the works of B R Ambedkar to the research centre at the
Kesari Journalists Trust here on Wednesday. Presenting the books,
Cultural Affairs Minister K C Joseph said in spite of various
amendments to the Constitution, the fact is that the basic structure
of the Constitution had not been affected.

This is a reflection of the stature of B R Ambedkar who is known as
the architect of the country's Constitution.

He said the country's Constitution was a model to the whole world.
Joseph said Ambedkar's works unravelled the sufferings of oppressed
classes like Dalits.

He said efforts were on to establish the Malayalam university and get
classical status to the Malayalam language. The government is also
keen on implementing the decision to take over the house of late
Sukumar Azhikode and make it as a museum. Information and PRD
director A Firoz received the complete works of Ambedkar for the
research centre. Speaking on the occasion, State Institute of
Languages Director M R Thampan said as Kerala was the first state to
get all the works by Ambedkar translated into Malayalam, the Ambedkar
Foundation had offered to consider granting an Ambedkar Chair at the
State Institute of Languages.

KUWJ district president Siby Kattampally presided over the function.
District secretary Suresh Vellimangalam welcomed the gathering and
treasurer N P Jasheer proposed a vote of thanks.
