Narayanan Krishnan cares for his city’s homeless, elderly, mentally ill. He worked for a major hotel in Bangalore and one day thought, I am feeding the rich but the poor of my region are dying for want of food. Now every day he feeds these people, bathes them and cuts their hair.
The philanthropist says, “Everybody has got 5.5 liters of blood. I am just a man.” On the social controversy of a person of his social class hugging and caring for the people India calls ‘Untouchables’ he says, “Food is one part, love is another part. The love and affection which you show will give them mental nutrition. Life’s ultimate purpose is to give. Start giving,” he urges. “Feel the joy of giving!”
