During a unique knowledge exchange programme 'Opening doors for a new era of Understanding the 'KISS' model Child Education' on Monday, Dr Samanta said he had 'no background, no backing and no banking' when he started off with modest initial seed capital of Rs 5,000 at 25 years of age.

Today, he is a legend, an iconic educationist, an emblem of service to humanity, a beacon of light for social transformation, and a redeemer of the fallen, the oppressed and the marginalised.
