Brief Description This is almost an uncommon facet of Dr. Ambedkar's personality. Dr. Ambedkar purchased this violin in Delhi and learnt it to play from the Sathe Bothers in Mumbai. There is an amusing memory attached to the Sathe Brothers who were adapt at producing a variety of sounds from the violin. Babasaheb got them to imitate animal sounds on the violin and went in to peals of laughter when they did so. He also learnt violin from Mr.Mukherjee in Delhi, but the learning session invariably ended in discussion on politics
