This chapter focuses on Salam's childhood. Salam was born on January 26, 1926. Soon after his birth, his father asked a visiting community representative to pray for the young boy. The Mauvli foretold that the boy would one day speak so loudly that the world would listen. This was now the second time that a remarkable career had been prophesied for his son. Salam cites as one of his earliest memories as learning the multiplication table for the number fifty.
