Ambedkar Memorial Lucknow - An Insight into the Famous Man’s Life


This day we made our way to the Gomti Nagar, where the erstwhile Chief Minister Mayavati got the Ambedkar Memorial Lucknow constructed to immortalize the life and works of Shri Bhimrao Ambedkar and several other similar noted people who devoted all their lives for the benefit of the society in general. The glorious life of Shri Ambedkar is not an unknown reference point for the people of this country and as a befitting tribute the Memorial was built with red sandstone bought especially from Rajasthan.

A great number of statues could be seen in the sanctum sanctorum through which the life and times of B.R. Ambedkar is reflected. The construction is very attractive and is in the shape of a flower with its four petals in four directions, which incidentally are also the four doors in the domes. The main entrance remained the Pratibimb Sthal, which has 62 elephants leading to the entrance. The entire setting is notably royal-like and as I moved from one part of the premise to the other, it humbled me to learn more and more about the contribution of the great man. Built in a staggering cost of seven billion rupees, the place is the pride of Lucknow and the unquestionable tribute to its leader. There was quiet and peace and the cleanliness in the premise is also up to the mark. Often places like these fall to negligence, which take away part of their charm but it is impressive to see that it continues to remain taken care of by the concerned authorities.

I clicked many pictures here at the Ambedkar Memorial Lucknow and it was indeed a very rewarding experience to know more about the great leader. His contribution in the making of our nation cannot be forgotten and this memorial is possibly one of the many ways the citizens of the country thank him. With just Lucknow Zoo left for me to visit, I would wrap up yet another trip of mine and be back to the grind. These trips are my only solace with which I survive the big bad corporate world.
