According to the popular story, the idea was born when the Congress leader Kamaraj was at a train intersection near the town of Cheranmahadevi in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. As he was waiting for a train to pass, he noticed young boys tending to their goats and cattle. He asked one small boy, “What are you doing with the cows? Why didn’t you go to school?”. The boy responded by saying how can he eat if he went to school. This response made Kamaraj think, and he went back and started a new program to attract kids like him to school.
