With an intention of spreading Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s message of educating and organisation, a bunch of young Ambedkarite’s are appealing people to donate ‘One pen, one notebook’ which can be donated to the underprivileged students. This initiative is to commemorate Dr Ambedkar’s death anniversary. The initiative, which was started by the Facebook Ambedkarite Movement (FAM)- an online forum in 2015 has now entered its third year with several youth and student organisations being associated with it. As part of the initiative, a bunch of youngsters appealed people who come to Chaityabhoomi on December 6 to bring a pen and a notebook instead of flowers and other offerings to pay real tribute to Dr Ambedkar. This year, despite the heavy rains that lashed the city on Tuesday, the group was firm on continuing the drive. “We could not set up the stall a day prior and had to shift all our collected notebooks to people’s homes. Today, we have set up a collection counter in a couple of stalls to get more donations” said Datta Jawale, a member of the core team. So far, the group has distributed notebooks and pens to the remotest villages in Amravati, Sangli, Thane, Palghar, Nashik and areas in and around Mumbai. “We have been appealing people on social media and messaging platforms and have got a great response” added Jawale.
