Born on January 4th, 1925, Savithramma lost her parents when she was very young. As she went through a sad phase in life, her teacher told her that Lord Krishna would always be by her. She developed an affection, trust and refuge in Lord Krishna (baby Krishna) which she maintained throughout her life. She named her eldest son Krishna and even her eldest grandson, Krishna. Mr. Krishna was a very loving and affectionate child and very helpful to both his parents and siblings. He made sure that his mother, Smt. Savithri Devi finished her college because he thought she had to discontinue her education early, after he was born. In fact he used to drive her to college with him.
