Justice Chandrachud in his speech had said in that Dr. Ambedkar had suffered humiliation and segregation in his school life where he had to attend classes while sitting outside the classroom and ensuring that he did not touch the water or notebook that belonged to the upper caste students.

Dr Ambedkar did not let this all demoralise him, rather he went to hold 26 degrees and titles, becoming one of the most highly educated Indians of his generation.
