The Discovery Jeet show called “Swami Ramdev: Ek Sangharsh” based on Baba Ramdev’s life has made a lot of revelations about his struggle as a child. In his childhood, Ramdev used to watch the teacher taking classes while hanging on a tree outside the school. When he finally got into the school, the teacher’s behaviour was not good to him.
Baba Ramdev was subjected to discrimination on the basis of caste and even untouchability. He was a keen student who wanted to learn and gain as much knowledge possible.
However, circumstances were not much favourable for him in school. Students, and even teachers, mocked him and treated him as an outcast because of his birth in a ‘lower class’ family. According to the revelations made in the show, Ramdev was not allowed to sit on the chairs like other students in the classroom.
His parents were well aware of the societal challenges that their son may have to face in school. However, Ramdev’s mother was extremely proud of his son and would prepare him to go to school every day with much vigour.
On the other hand, his father was inhibited and afraid for his son. He even used to say that their caste would not change by going to school and garnering knowledge.
Well, the show is going to present a detailed version of Swami Ramdev’s life. We are already excited about all the upcoming episodes. Are you?
