Statue of Equality: Diversion From Objective

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Statue of equality Mumbai   This is fantasy letter of a common boy to his friend who fought for acquisition of land of Indu Mill for Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar memorial. Please take it on lighter note but don’t forget to think upon issue raised at end. We don’t intend to harm the sentiments of any religion.


Hi Kishore,

     Last week, I heard so much about Indu Mill and this is the reason why I am writing this letter. My every morning began with newspaper headlines regarding Indu Mill. It quickly reminded me our long lasting discussion (rather argument) on Indu Mill held during college hours.

     First of all, let me congratulate you for whatever you have achieved. I used word ‘whatever’ because I am unable to understand your achievement. Can you explain me what we achieved from this matter?

     The concept of ‘Statue of Equality’ is superb. The facilities shown in blue print of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar’s International memorial are praiseworthy. I am enthusiastic to see it in reality. It would add one more landmark in Mumbai and help to boost the dignity of the city.

     I am a bit worrisome about its maintenance. Truly speaking, it should not become polluted because of people and a neglected place by government. Government has not only granted your demand but increased your responsibility to make it clean and prosperous. It is obviously our responsibility too, to maintain the serenity of the place.

     Buddy, before I close this letter I want to ask you one question. After announcement of Indu Mill, Chief Minister of Maharashtra announced Rajarshi Shahu’s memorial at Shahu Park.

     Is it too important to just have statues of our national heroes (I am talking about all heroes’ right from Gandhi, Tilak, Savarkar, Ambedkar, Subhash Chandra Bose etc) at various places? Can’t we step in their shoes and fulfill their wish?

Think and reply. I am waiting for your response.
