Ambedkar's legacy lasts more than Gandhi's?

For the first time the country declared a national holiday on Ambedkar Jayanti. Statues, rallies and advertisement campaigns marked the day as almost every political party paid obeisance to the father of modern India's most committed votebank.

And that brings us to the question of the day that was asked on CNN-IBN show Face the Nation: Is Ambedkar's legacy more enduring than Gandhi's?

On the panel of experts to debate the issue were author and historian Ramachandra Guha, Dalit thinker and author Chandrabhan Prasad and BJP leader Sheshadri Chari.

Final results of the SMS poll:

Yes 78 per cent

No 22 per cent

CNN-IBN Editorial:

Mahatma Gandhi is the patron saint of independent India and his place in the nation's imagination is unquestioned. But for lakhs of Dalits across India, Ambedkar remains a symbol of education and empowerment beyond wildest dreams. Gandhi is a moral ideal, but Ambedkar a political fighting force not a mass politician but an intellectual who forged a new identity for millions.

Jai Bhim.
Be happY!
