Jai Bhim (also Jay Bhim or Jai Bheem) is a greeting used by followers of Ambedkarism. Jai Bhim literally means "Victory to Bhim" referring to B. R. Ambedkar, an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer and the principal architect of the Constitution of India.
In Delhi, Bihari Lal Harit  was the first to announce JAI BHIM in 1946 through a poem in the presence of Dr. Ambedkar at Gandhi Ground in front of Old Delhi Railway Station on the occasion of Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar's birthday. "Nav yuvak kom ke jut javen sab milkar kom parasti me, Jai Bhim ka nara laga kare, Bharat ki basti-basti me"
