Unsung Heroes Of India

Here through this post I wanna bring two respectable Indian to the all of you.They have contributed well to the society but most of us don’t know them.I read about of them from different sources and once i finished reading i really felt that they are the real “Superheroes“.In a country like India often these guys are left behind as all people here care about is Cricket/Bollywood and Filthy politics.These two has dedicated their life for  social causes and has done so much that i feel like everyone in this world should respect them.

Paalam Kalyanasundaram

P.Kalyanasundaram is a social worker from TamilNadu in India, working for orphans. He has donated his pension for this cause. Kalyanasundaram has worked in the field of social services for more than 45 years.Mr.Kalayanasundaram worked as a Librarian for 30 years. Every month in his 30 year experience(service), he donated his entire salary to help the needy.He worked as a server in a hotel to meet his needs. He donated even his pension amount of about ten lakh rupees to the needy. He is the first person in the world to spend the entire earnings for a social cause. He received a sum of Rs 30 crores as part of this award which he distributed entirely for the needy as usual.Moved by his passion to help others, Super Star Rajinikanth adopted him as his father. He still stays as a bachelor and dedicated his entire life for serving the society.He is a gold medalist in library science,and has completed his MA in literature and history. Still i wonder why there is no Wiki page about him.
The Union Government has acclaimed him as `The Best Librarian in India‘. He has also been chosen as `one of the top ten librarians of the world‘. The International Biographical centre, Cambridge, has honoured him as `one of the noblest of the world‘, while the United Nations Organisation adjudged him as one of the Outstanding People of the 20th Century’.

Narayanan Krishnan

Narayanan Krishnan was a bright, young, award-winning chef with a five-star hotel group, short-listed for an elite job in Switzerland. But a quick family visit home before heading to Europe changed everything. After witnessing a distressing incident in 2002, he quit his job and began feeding the homeless and mentally disabled in his hometown. He said, “I saw a very old man, literally eating his own human waste out of hunger. I went to the nearby hotel and asked them what was available. They had idli, which I bought and gave to the old man. Believe me, I had never seen a person eating so fast, ever. As he ate the food, his eyes were filled with tears. Those were the tears of happiness.

“That spark and that inspiration is a driving force still inside me as a flame — to serve all the mentally ill destitutes and people who cannot take care of themselves,” Krishnan said. Krishnan founded his nonprofit Akshaya Trust in 2003. Now 29, he has served more than 1.2 million meals — breakfast, lunch and dinner — to India’s homeless and destitute, mostly elderly people abandoned by their families and often abused.He serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to 425 indigent and elderly people in Madurai.He also provides haircuts and shaves to give extra dignity to those he serves. He was selected as one of the Top 10 in “CNN heroes 2010
