This tiny village in Kolhapur district does not exist on the maps of Maharashtra. Ask Google Maps where Mangaon is, and it will take you to Mangaon of Raigad district. Only when you type “Mangaon (Kolhapur)” would Google show you the Mangaon where B.R. Ambedkar entered public life by organising a conference of untouchables in March 1920. Shyamrao Kamble, 80, of Mangaon has inherited memories of the conference.
