Special: Watch The fascinating story of Dr. BR Ambedkar
Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar was by far the most learned Indian politician, at least of his time. He was the first Indian to get a Doctorate in Economics from the London School of Economics as well as a Doctorate from Columbia University. In addition, he also got the degree of Barrister-at-Law from Grey’s Inn, London. He had an insatiable hunger for learning. On his trips abroad, he would bring back thousands of second hand books with him. His personal library at Bombay, Rajgirh, had more than 50,000 books.
