    s out of their apathy through the Committee on
    Road Safety it constituted in 2014 and several
    specific and time bound directions
     Safety black spots on roads that were identified
    on the basis of fatal accidents between 2011 and 2014

 Present investigative machinery does not have the capability to determine faults,
 Enabling officials responsible for bad road design and construction
 Accident victims heavy burden of out-of-pocket expenditure on medical treatment.

B.R Ambedkar

  • B.R. Ambedkar’s educational journey began in impossibly challenging conditions.
  •  With the help of a modest scholarship granted by the Maharaja of Baroda,
  •  He joined Columbia University, New York, in July 1913.
  •  After completing his M.A., he went on to write a thesis that ultimately led to
    the conferment of a PhD degree.
  • In mid-1916, he was admitted to Grays’ Inn in London to appear for the bar.
  • When his scholarship ended in 1917, he was forced to return to India
  •  All this has been well documented by his biographer Dhananjay Keer
    But several details remain incomplete.
  •  What was the exact date on which he left India? When did he
    arrive in America?
  •  How did he travel to London? Based on documents newly accessed in
    the British Library, we can now fill in the gaps.
