Dr Ambedkar was born in a military cantonment in Mhow, Madhya Pradesh.
Growing up, BR Ambedkar and other Dalit children were subjected to segregation based on their caste. At school, they had to rely on someone from a higher caste to pour them drinking water from a height since neither BR Ambedkar nor the other children of his caste were allowed to touch the water or the vessel that contained it.
