My initial schooling was done in Sree Saraswathi Vidya Mandir followed by Bangalore High School, both situated in Jayanagar, suburbs of Bangalore South. During my school days, along with standard textbook curriculum I was also involved in various extra curricular activities like participation in intra and inter-school quiz and extempore competitions along with hiking, rock climbing and scouting. It was this extra curricular activity that helped me to look beyond standard textbooks and develop interest in science and in nature i.e., the phenomena of physical world. At home I was also exposed to Kannada literature to which I developed special interest and it still continues. I did not have any pressure to focus only on school curriculum and as long as I was engaged in productive activity my parents were okay with it.
