ambedkar childhood

Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, also known as Babasaheb Ambedkar, was born on April 14, 1891, in Mhow, a small military town in the Central Provinces (now in Madhya Pradesh), India. He was the 14th child of his parents, Ramji Sakpal and Bhimabai, and belonged to the Mahar caste, which was considered to be one of the lowest castes in the Hindu social hierarchy.

As a child, Ambedkar faced discrimination and exclusion due to his caste, which affected his education and social life. He was not allowed to sit with other students in the classroom, and he had to bring his own drinking water to school, as other students refused to share water with him. Despite these obstacles, Ambedkar was a bright and determined student, and he excelled in his studies.

At the age of 14, Ambedkar lost his mother, which was a traumatic event in his life. His father remarried, and the family faced financial difficulties. Ambedkar had to work hard to support himself and his studies, and he often faced social ostracism and discrimination.

Despite these challenges, Ambedkar went on to become a scholar, a lawyer, and a social reformer who fought for the rights of the oppressed and marginalized communities in India. He is widely regarded as one of the most important figures in modern Indian history and a champion of social justice and equality.
