Swami Vivekananda was born as Narendranath Dutta on 12th January 1863. His father, Vishwanath Datta, was an attorney at the Calcutta high court. Naren was naughty and restless as a child, and his parents often had difficulty in controlling him. He was interested spiritually from a young age and used to meditate before the images of deities. The book named "Swami Vivekananda Stories" is written by Sathyan Thannippuzha.
