I am personally ashamed that I was not aware of the existence of this noble and great man, Kalyanasundaram honoured by US Govt.
I feel equally ashamed that India Govt has conferred ‘Bharat Ratna’ on Sachin Tendulkar, who seeks and gets exemption of customs duty on a ‘Ferrari’ which he got free, who reportedly earns crores of rupees (in hundreds) every year.
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. In recognition to his service, the American government honoured him with the ‘Man of the Millennium’ award! 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.
All Indian Politicians, Film stars, Business magnets, cricketers Press and we all Indians should be PROUD and also should be ashamed of ourselves. American Government has honored him but we Indians even don’t know that such a personality exist amongst us.
Atleast lets have the courtesy to pass this on and on till the whole world comes to know about this Great Good Samaritan.
Although the Indian government may not recognise your achievements, but we Indians are extremely proud of you!
Hat’s off Mr. Kalayanasundaram!!!
