In tonight’s episode of Ek Mahanayak – Dr B. R. Ambedkar, in the village, a group of girls is playing hopscotch with a small stone. Bhim arrives and tells them that they can use the same stone to learn shapes and educate themselves. One of the girls tells him that it is easier said than done. Another girl says that their parents will kill them if they try to study. This instance reaches the ears of the village men and their blood boils with rage.
When Bhim reaches his house and justifies his action, Bua scolds him hard. Bhima Bai sees the village men charging at them and asks Bhim to hide inside. But Bhim frees his hand from his mother’s hold and stands in front of the village men to face them. Just then, Sethji’s son defends Bhim by taking a rock and threatening to break the villagers’ heads. The men ask Bhim to stop Ramji from sending his daughters to school.
