The 90-year-old singer took to Twitter to extend her greetings on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti and also expressed gratitude for being able to get the chance to meet him.
"Namaskar. Bhartiya Savidhan ke janak mahamanav Bharat Ratna Dr BR Ambedkar Ji ki Jayanti par main unko koti koti vandan karti hu. (Namaskar. On the birth anniversary of Dr. BR Ambedkar, the father of the great Indian Constitution, I offer him a ceremonial offering)" she tweeted.
"Main unko pratyaksh roop se mil saki ye mera sobhagya hai. (It is my good fortune that I got the chance to meet him)," her tweet further read. Ambedkar, commonly known as Babasaheb, dedicated his life to working for the upliftment of Dalits, women and the underprivileged.
नमस्कार. आज किसीने मुझे गायक शब्बीर कुमार जी द्वारा बनाए गए ये कुछ पेंटिंग्स भेजे जिन्हें देखके मैं सच में प्रभावित हुई हूँ. मैं शब्बीर कुमार जी को बहुत बधाई और शुभकामनाएँ देती हूँ। pic.twitter.com/vR6QSXYWXb— Lata Mangeshkar (@mangeshkarlata) April 10, 2020
Born into a poor Dalit family on April 14, 1891, Ambedkar became independent India's first law minister, the principal architect of the Indian Constitution and a founding father of the Republic of India.
He also campaigned against the social discrimination faced by Dalits and inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement in 1956. Ambedkar was awarded the Bharat Ratna posthumously in 1990.
