The image of the bus with Ambedkar's picture is a morphed one
America's economy is based on the same book which Baba Saheb wrote as a thesis for his doctor's degree during the British period.
An image of a bus with images of BR Ambedkar and his wife Savita Ambedkar, from a foreign country is going viral with a claim "कोलंबिया (अमेरिका) की सड़कों पर दौड़ती सिटी बस पर बाबासाहब का चित्र. यह असली सम्मान है, अमेरिका आज भी बाबा साहब को अपना आदर्श मानता है क्योंकि अमेरिका की अर्थव्यवस्था उसी पुस्तक पर आधारित है जिसे बाबा साहब ने ब्रिटिश काल में अपनी डाक्टर की डिग्री के लिए थिसिस के रूप में लिखा था।"
When translated states "Babasaheb's portrait on the city bus running on the streets of Colombia (USA)..It is a real honor, America still considers Baba Saheb as its ideal because America's economy is based on the same book which Baba Saheb wrote as a thesis for his doctor's degree during the British period."
The image was viral in 2020, and resurfaced again now on Facebook.
The claim that the bus in Columbia, USA has pictures of Ambedkar and his wife Savita Ambedkar on it is FALSE. The image has been morphed.
Google Reverse image search gave results that show the original image of the bus on the Wikipedia commons website, with the description " City Sightseeing's 273 (EU05 VBJ), a Volvo B7L/Ayats Bravo City, in Bath, Somerset, England. Unlike many City Sightseeing tours which are run under franchise to other operators, this one is run directly by the company themselves."
This bus is part of city sightseeing, which provides tour bus services in more than 130 cities around the world. The buses have an open top for sightseeing.
We can see several images of the sightseeing bus which resemble the viral image.
Another image with the title 'Hop on Hop Off City Tourist Bus, Bath, England, UK.', was also found posted on alamy.com in July 2010.
All these images do not have Ambedkar and his wife's images on them.
When searched for the buses with Ambedkar and his wife in Columbia but did not find any such buses.
When searching for images of Ambedkar and his wife, we found an article sharing the original image that has been morphed onto the city sightseeing bus.
Hence, the claim that the bus in Columbia, USA has pictures of Ambedkar and his wife Savita Ambedkar on it is FALSE. The image has been morphed.
