5 July 1920: Dr. Ambedkar left for England for higher education[1],[2] 

Dr. Ambedkar, as a young professor saved some money, got some help from Maharaja of Kolhapur, took a loan of Rs. 5,000 from his friend Mr. Naval Bhatena, and left for London to complete his studies in Law and Economics. He asked P N Batkar to undertake the responsibility of publishing Mook Nayak in his absence. The tranquil support his pious and patient wife afforded was no less valuable. His wife was again left to pass days looking after her little son Yashwant and the family of the elder brother of her husband.
