Passages from the Khairmode biography of Dr. Ambedkar. These have been translated from the Marathi by Rohini Shridhar Shukla, and slightly edited for brevity and clarity by FWP.
Our Ambedkar Master was something else. When the school bell would ring, he would come to class, and would hand over the entire class to one older boy from our class named Rahimtulla ,and would carelessly just leave class. Ambedkar Sir would not teach much in school....This teacher had come to meet Babasaheb in 1927. At the time, Babasaheb's office was on the ground floor of a school building behind Damodar Hall. As soon as the teacher entered the office, Babasaheb at once rose and stood, and in an emotionally moved tone uttered the word "Master" and bent down in veneration.... I have seen this happen with my own eyes.
