Ambedkar’s interest in Sanskrit

Posted by desicontrarian on June 5, 2009

A friend writes:

“Ambedkar studied Sanskrit practically by himself and sometimes with the help of pandits and himself became a pandit. In his opinion , Persian stands no comparion with Sanskirt as the latter , observes he, is the golden treasure of epics , the cradle of grammar, politics and philosophy and the home of logic , dramas and criticism”

(Ref: Hudlikar Prof , Satyabodh, The Navayug, Ambedkar Special Number, 13 April, 1947).  The para abstracted from BR Ambedkar , His Life and mission by Dhanankay Keer. This book has run into several editions.

Take a look at this as well.
