BR Ambedkar’s Dalit Buddhist movement, also called Nei-Buddhist movement, is considered as one of the most historical events. In this nearly half a million Dalits, formerly untouchables joined him and converted to his Navayana Buddhism. Navayana means ‘new vehicle’, and it refers to the re-interpretation of Buddhism by BR Ambedkar. Dhammachakra Pravartan Day is a significant event for Ambedkar’s followers, and it is observed every year with great honour and pride.
