Santosh Shah’s siblings, parents, and childhood

Santosh Shah was born and raised in Karjanha, Siraha, a small village in Nepal, where he spent his childhood playing in the hills and gardens with his siblings. According to reports, Santosh was the youngest of seven siblings, and he was left at home alone after his brothers and sisters left for work or married.

Santosh’s father died when he was five years old, leaving him to be raised solely by his mother. Santosh, who was only nine years old at the time, took on work such as selling farm produce, fruits, and bread in the market due to financial insecurity.

“School was never prioritized,” Santosh explained. He even failed SLC (grade 10) and did not have the patience to re-appear for the exams for another year. “What was I going to do with the education given my circumstances?” he continued.

So, like others in the village, Santosh traveled to India to work at a hotel in Ahmedabad. His first job was at a five-star hotel, where “even those of us who washed dishes had to wear a uniform.” Santosh dreamed of becoming a chef after being influenced by a chef there.

Santosh had a difficult childhood in general. However, he revealed that he was also inspired by the local spices and ingredients he grew up with. Growing up in his mother’s garden, he discovered the colocasia leaf, which would later become a signature ingredient in his incredible dishes.

Santosh advised those aspiring to a better future to “never stop learning; you are never too old to learn new things and improve your craft.”
