Ravinder Ravi

I was born on March 8, 1937, in Sialkot, Pakistan. My official date of birth, as recorded in the documents, is March 8, 1938. My father, at that time, was a teacher of Punjabi & Divinity in Murray College, Sialkot. I received my primary education, in the Urdu medium, in Khalsa Scool, Dholaan wala chowk, near Sialkot Railway Station. I won the District Board Scholarship in grade 4. When I was in grade 5, due to the partition of India and Pakistan, we had to move to our ancestral village Jagat Pur, in district Nawan Shehar. I became an integral part of my extended family in Jagat Pur and started understanding and enjoying life in a new rural setting that was strikingly different from my urban background. I completed my Matriculation from Khalsa High School, Sarhal Qazian, a mile and a half from Jagat Pur, in 1952, and joined Lyall Pur Khalsa College, Jalandhar, as F.Sc.(Medical) student. My father, at that time, was a prominent figure and well known teacher of Punjabi and Urdu, in this college. He wanted me to do M.B.B.S. and become a doctor/physician, but I had absolutely no interest in medical sciences. First, I failed in Physics and then in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. My father knew well that I will not fail in the remaining 2 courses of English and Punjabi. He saw the writing on the wall and allowed me to pursue a teaching career. I completed my J.B.T.(Junior Basic Teacherís Training) from Doaba Khalsa High School, Jalandhar, in April, 1956.
