Nikhil Kamath's family and schooling

For the unversed, Nikhil Kamath originally hails from a Konkani Brahmin family and was born in Karnataka, on September 5, 1985. The business tycoon dropped out of school before finishing his 10th standard due to his lack of interest in studies and was denied permission to take Board Exams.
