Abstract :

Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on 14 April, 1891 in Mahar caste in MHOW town now is known in his name Dr. Ambedkar Nagar in Indore district of Madhya Pradesh in a family of Mahar caste which was one of the 'untouchable' castes. The problem of Untouchability created many difficulties in Ambedkar's higher education. With the help of a scholarship from Sayajirao Gaekwad, Maharaja of Baroda, he attended Columbia University, USA, and later on with hard work managed to study at the London School of Economics. In England he attained a doctorate and also became a barrister. On returning to India he virtually dedicated himself to the task of upliftment of the untouchable community. Soon he won the confidence of the- untouchables and became their supreme leader.
