Ambavadekar Becomes Ambedkar

When Bhimrao was a student at the High school, a Brahmin teacher admired Bhimrao’s lively mind. His family name was Ambedkar. The teacher liked Bhimrao so much that he changed his name from Ambavadekar to Ambedkar.

When Bhimrao’s father married for the second time the boy’s mind under – went a change. He decided that he should be independent and the only way to achieve this was to study well.

Why not go to Bombay, thought the boy. He needed money for the railway fare; didn’t he? For three days he tried to steal his aunt’s purse, and at last got it. He found just half an anna (three paise) in it!

By next morning the boy was ashamed of and disgusted with his deed. He decided to struggle and stand on his own legs whatever the difficulties.

Young Bhim was very fond of books and never tired of them. And his father even borrowed money and satisfied the boy’s thirst for books.
