A Town In India Has A Crorepati Temple, But It Is A Former Chef Who Feeds The Destitute There

Selfless love? You must have heard of this phrase quite often but here is an example which will completely redefine your sense of it.

Narayanan Krishnan was like any other ambitious man. He had the same dreams as any careerist individual.

Born in Madurai, Tamil Nadu in 1981, Krishnan was a celebrated chef of the Taj Hotel in Bangalore when he got an opportunity for an elite job in Switzerland.

But unlike most of India’s foreign-loving population, he let go off this opportunity and, instead, focused on feeding the starving mouths around him.

In 2002 Krishnan had come across a homeless man under a bridge in the temple-town of Madurai, who was in a condition you wouldn’t want your worst enemy in.

Thought Narayanan Krishnan

Madurai is a town with untold riches in its temples. The most prominent – Meenakshi Temple – receives Rs.6 crore annually in revenue.

Reaction

The temple alone attracts around 6,000 people daily. Isn’t it surprising that only one actually decided to do something?

Krishnan started to get up as early as 4 am in the morning and prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for around 400 destitute every day.

Krishnan opened a trust called ‘Akshaya’ to arrange resources in order to help “the helpless, homeless, sick, elderly, mentally ill and destitute…”.

It is, therefore, no surprise that he was the only Indian in a list of 10 heroes named by CNN in 2010.



Heroism

He was the inspiration behind the 2012 award-winning Malayalam movie ‘Ustad Hotel’.

Religion dominates the length and breadth of the country. People have both money and time for deities, and Godmen only talk about selfless love.

Only one man understood the meaning of kindness in a God-fearing land.

Watch him speak at TEDx Talks…

Or, see what he does for the destitute.
