1936 Influenced by his grandmother
Karolos enjoyed brushing his grandmother’s hair giving her different styles just at the age of five. His grandmother, Constantine, is a defining presence in his fate. Basically, she grew him up and educated him. Even the name Panagiotis gave him in honor of her son, a monk on Mount Athos. Himself mentions a litle story: "The tradition in the first bath of the newborn thrown into the water together with a a little salt and a sugar to give the infant wisdom and sweetness. Holding the newborn Karolos his grandmother threw the whole portion of the sugar-box in his grandson's bath". And he wonders - "Maybe that's why I'm so sweet".
