India set to acquire Ambedkar’s home in London
India is set to acquire a prime property here for an estimated 4 million pounds where BR Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution and dalit rights activist, lived during his student days in the 1920s.
An “under offer” sign outside the 10 King Henry’s Road townhouse on a leafy street in Chalk Farm area of north London indicates that the sale process is nearly complete.
A blue plaque commemorates the fact that Ambedkar lived there in 1921-22 when he was studying at London School of Economics(LSE).
