Kishore Saint was groomed in oral tradition by his grandmother in punjabi tradition as well as mid eastern folklore. He schooled in a Madrasa, and Convent and a Gurukul. More importantly being on the other side of the border, he was in the midst of the partition riots on both sides of the border. As a student and then a teacher in Kenya and in the UK, in the midst of the 60s youth movements, he felt the yearning for public work and the call to come back to India. This he says in his own words in this segment.  https://youtu.be/QnD1KajyMgI
