Source Notes

Ashish Seth quotes him on the Kapoor Family website: "I was born in Bombay on 21-10-'31 at 21:30 hours, but spent my childhood in Calcutta. I did my Montessori and Kindergarten there" [1]; "The year was 1931, and the memories of the loss of two young sons were stilI afresh in the minds of my parents. My mother was expecting once again, and both my parents wanted to take no chances. They were very cautious about my arrival on the scene and brushing aside the traditional practice of delivering at home, I was born on 21st October at Ajinkya Hospital on Charni Road" [2].
