In tonight’s episode of Ek Mahanayak Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, when the barber refuses to cut Bhimrao’s hair, he comes home and asks his father, what caste do they belong to. Hearing this, Ramji gets surprised because he was trying to avoid telling his children about their caste.
Watch the latest episode below:
Bhimabai insists on telling the children about their caste, especially Bhimrao because he has no idea why people prefer to keep a distance from his family. When she sees that Ramji is not ready to do it, Bhimabai holds Bhimrao’s hand and brings him to the veranda of the house. She makes him stand in the center and draws a circle. She then divides the circle into two parts and asks Bhim to stand in one section and tells him that this part is their society.
Then she tells him that in one part of the circle is their caste and the other part is where the people who belong to the upper caste live. She also says that she doesn’t know what divided them, but the only thing she knows, is that people from their caste are not allowed to touch or be amongst those belonging to the upper class. Bhim understands the concept and says that one day he will put an end to this discrimination.
Later that day, Anand and Bala tell Ramji that they have decided to quit education and start working. Anand says that he wants to open a tea stall, and Bala says that he will start playing instruments at weddings. Ramji then asks Bhim what he thinks should both of them do.
In the preview of the next episode, the parents of the other students from the school come to the principal to complain about the lower caste people studying with their children. Bhim challenges them to ask any five questions from his textbook and says that if he fails to answer then he and his brother will leave the school immediately.
