Finding My Self: A Life in Education and Activism is an insightful and self-reflective account that spans over seven decades, from the 1940s to the present. Beginning with his experiences as a young man who found his vocation in lands far from home, revered activist and educator Chand Kishore Saint (1932-2022) recounts his life's work across four continents in these memoirs.The author migrated to the British colony of Kenya in the aftermath of the 1947 Partition and worked in both Kenya and USA of the 1960s, a time of intellectual fervor and ferment. His memories of student life in the UK, the Indian diaspora in Kenya, and life as an educator in Kenya's government service (both before and after the country's independence) provide a personal glimpse into a world that was just emerging from the long shadow of colonialism.Returning to India in 1972 to keep his tryst with his motherland, Kishore Saint worked in social and rural development, eventually forming the voluntary organisation, Ubeshwar Vikas Mandal in Udaipur.
