  1. Mr sanu from the very way in which he refers to Sir BN Rao shows he knows nothing much about him him & then he goes on passing judgement on him pretty much saying BN Rao was a British stooge.. this shows either Mr Sanu's complete lack of intellect or laziness to do research. Atleast read the constitution drafting committee discussion minutes & understand what Mr. Ambedkar thought of BN Rao

  2. All this people want to change the constitution of India it's as simple as that sir please don't wast time on the past look at the present what all wrong things are going on in india ,it will be much better and helpful for every citizen of India, there are many things on which we all have to look in to

  3. the work of drafting committe was to draft the constitution which consist of 7 memebers out of which 5 members left the commitee for several reasons and their place was not filled . what u said that the work of drafting committe was to give suggestion .what i think is either u have mistaken or dont have complete knowledge

  4. Sir Dr Ambedkar ji ke original hand written notes and books jo India lane ke samay Samandar me dub gaye… Iss ke kya reason ho sakta hai.. kya ye ek soch ke kiya tha.. Ispe agar koi information ho toh share kare aap ke lecture mein please…

  5. Why is Ambedkar called father of Indian Constitution and not BN Rau?

    “The third thing we must do is not be content with mere political democracy. We must note that our political democracy can not last unless there lies at the base of it social democracy. What does social democracy mean? It means a way of life which recognizes liberty, equality and fraternity as the principles of life.” – Dr. B.R. Ambedkar

    In the world the great man first has to be born in the form of the great man and then he has to prove himself the great man by his enriched personality with virtues and by his great capability. According to such a rule of the world Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born in the form of the great man, on 14th April 1891 at Mahu in Madhya Pradesh of India. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, also known as Babasaheb, was an Indian nationalist, jurist, Dalit, political leader, activist, philosopher, thinker, anthropologist, historian, orator, profilic writer, economist, scholar, editor, revolutionary and the revivalist of Buddhism in India. He was also the chief architect of the Indian constitution. Born into a poor untouchable family, Ambedkar spent his whole life fighting against social discrimination, the system of Chaturvarna – the Hindu categorization of human society into four varnas – and the Indian Caste System.

    B.N Rao

    B. N. Rau was appointed as the Constitutional Adviser to the Constituent Assembly in formulating the Indian Constitution in 1946.

    He was responsible for the general structure of its democratic framework of the Constitution and prepared its initial draft in February 1948.

    This draft was debated, revised and finally adopted by the Constituent Assembly of India on 26 November 1949.

    As part of his research in drafting the Constitution of India, in 1946, Rau travelled to the U.S.A., Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, where he had personal consultations with judges, scholars, and authorities on constitutional law.

    Amongst others, he met Justice Felix Frankfurter of the American Supreme Court, who famously advised him against the inclusion of a clause for 'due process' in the Indian Constitution as it would impose an 'undue burden' on the judiciary.

    The Constituent Assembly's resolution setting up the Drafting Committee, under the chairmanship of B. R. Ambedkar, declared that it was being set up to "Scrutinise the Draft of the text of the Constitution prepared by the Constitutional Adviser giving effect to the decisions taken already in the Assembly and including all matters ancillary thereto or which have to be provided in such a Constitution, and to submit to the Assembly for consideration the text of the Draft Constitution as revised by the Committee." There already was a Draft in existence when this Committee was set up.

    The President of the Constituent Assembly Rajendra Prasad, before signing the Constitution on 26 November 1949, thanked Rau for having "worked honorarily all the time that he was here, assisting the assembly not only with his knowledge and erudition but also enabled the other members to perform their duties with thoroughness and intelligence by supplying them with the material on which they could work."

    Rau was not a member of the assembly but was perhaps as important in the framing of the Constitution.

    The 1st draft of constitution and genral structure was written by BN RAU.

    Ambedkar was the head team ,which had more than 200 people, who debated and finalised the draft. I really dont see how what your have written answers the question.

    At the same time I'm not sure you understand Dr. Ambedkar’s importance. He was not the head of the Constituent Assembly as you are suggesting here (that was Dr. Rajendra Prasad). Ambedkar was the head of the Drafting Committe (with 8 members) where detailed deliberations on the draft took place before it was submitted to the Assembly for a vote, so he did have a lot of say in its final form.

    I still think the most influential was Sir Rau (apart from, of course, the Oligarchs- Nehru, Azad, Patel and Prasad)

    He has just put together a mishmash of Wikipedia excerpts. I don't think he properly understands the role Sir Rau played, from his questionnaire to his Precedents to his white papers at every stage.

    There can be following reasons why

    Dr. Ambedkar is called as 'Father' of Constitution.

    Sir B.N Rao was Constitutional advisor whereas Dr. Ambedkar was the Chairman of the most important committee that is Drafting Committee.

    Pandit Nehru and Sardar Patel were looking for some foreign constitutional expert for making India’s constitution, at that time Gandhi askedWhy to look for some foreign expert when we have someone like Dr.Ambedkar? (Gandhi and Ambedkar had difference of opinion on fundamental issues still he promoted Ambedkar).

    Drafting committee was the foundation for the Constitution Making, this committee studied constitutions of different countries and took only those principles which were relevant to Indian context.

    So, Dr. Ambedkar was the man who contributed immensely to the constitution of a multicultural, multiethnic, multireligious country like India. Our Constitution is the most comprehensive document in the world, India could remain integrated because of the way Constitution has been made.

    According to some of his followers this makes him the father of the constitution of the largest Democracy. Nevertheless Importance of other personalities must not be diminished, he should better be called 'Architect' rather than 'Father' because Dr. Ambedkar himself was against Fuhrer Syndrome (Supreme leader). Our country is suffering with this BHAKTI culture which must be stopped as political leaders are being treated as saviours.

    The greatest tribute to Ambedkar would be to practice his ideas and principles in their true spirit instead of his deification.

    Answered August 5, 2018

    I have seen only two persons working hard day and night in the constitution making and they are Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and his Dog Tobby.

    -B N Rau from his book India's Constitution in Making.

    There were 7 members appointed in the Constitutional Assemble, One of them resigned, whose place was empty all the time, one person died and that place was also empty, one member used to lived in America, ultimately his place also remained empty, one member was busy with his political duties and could not spare time in the Assembly, one or two people were out of Delhi hence it was impossible for them to adjust in Delhi’s cold weather. Ultimately the whole responsibility of framing of constitution shouldered on Dr.Ambedkar. We all are obliged and grateful to Dr.Ambedkar, who could complete the tough task of drafting the constitution alone. Therefore his work is truly appreciable.

    -Mr.T.T.Krishnamchari in Constitutional Assemble Debate, Vol.7.page.231
