Default Extraordinary Indians

Really inspiring


Quote:
"In the book, he says that a dead man should be given a decent farewell irrespective of the cast or religion the person belongs to. When the atma (soul)) leaves the body, it should be given a proper farewell. This is the belief of all Hindus."The observation made Sreedhar think of all those unknown and unclaimed bodies in the hospitals and the abandoned old people in old age homes.
Quote:
hat was when Sreedhar realised that relationships had no value in the lives of all those old people who are abandoned in the various old age homes. Those people might have helped their little ones take their first steps, holding their little hands, but when their own steps turned shaky, there was no one to hold them. Finally when they died, there was no one to bid them goodbye.[
Its very interesting to read such things and get inspiration from these extraordinary peoples to do some contribution (atleast) within ones limit

He recalls with a little prompting how one day he saw a mentally ill man eating his excreta. He rushed to the nearest restaurant and bought the man five idlis. The man ate voraciously, and then smiled at him. The smile made Krishnan want to do it again and again.

Krishnan has not married and wonders if anyone would want to marry a man who spends his days cooking food for others. He is firm that his life partner has to agree to this kind of life.

His parents were initially shocked, but are now very supportive of their son. They advise him about the cuisine and also about how he can streamline the process. One wonders why he left his job in a five star hotel to bury the dead and feed the mentally ill. To this he just smiles and says, "I like doing it."
Left out his job in a ***** hotel & feeding these mentally ill people..
