RARE CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY PHOTOS OF SAURAV GANGULY XCLUSIVE COLLECTIONThe youngest son of Chandidas and Nirupa Ganguly, Ganguly was born on 8 July 1972 in Kolkata. His father ran a flourishing print business and was one of the richest men in Kolkata. He had a luxurious childhood and was nicknamed the Maharaja. Though he was asked to concentrate on his studies and not play cricket, he was inspired to do so by his brother Snehasish Ganguly, an accomplished left-handed batsman for Bengal. Though he was acutally right-handed, he batted left-handed so that he could use his brother's equipment.

After he showed some promise as a batsman, he was enrolled in a cricket academy. An indoor multi-gym and concrete wicket was built at home for him and his brother, and he would often watch cricket videos, especially those of David Gower, his hero. After he scored a century against the Orissa U-15 side, he was made captain of the prestigious St Xavier's School's cricket team. His stint there was controversial as several of his teammates complained against his arrogance.
