B.R.Ambedkar, the chief architect of Indian Constitution, came at the appropriate moment in British ruled India to assume the natural leadership of his kinsmen and participated in social movement and got involved in founding the constitutional edifice of the country. The present study is an attempt to make an objective analysis of the strand of the ideas of Ambedkar on equality and freedom in Indian context while keeping in minds the gaps and lapses in the existing literature on Ambedkar. Indians, especially, downtrodden people of India consider him as immortal soul whose memory will even guide the nation on the path of social justice, liberty and equality. It can be said that Ambedkarism is of great relevance to Indian society even today in achieving social justice, removal of untouchability, in establishing equality and freedom and true democracy.
