My Unsung Heroes | Narayanan Krishnan

There are few heroes I love to the core. But my heroes are different from the heroes you love. The heroes I’m in love are not celebrity. They are far high to be called celebrity, does not make crores. They are most beautiful souls on earth. Among them. Here is one man who takes the humanity to next level.

When many are willing to get settled abroad. This man took a detour and defined himself. Who are there for the country when it matters the most and choose to stay in the country despite doing well abroad?

The man I’m talking about is none other than most humble Narayanan Krishnan.

Narayanan Krishnan was an award-winning chef with Taj Hotels,Bangalore and was short-listed for an elite job in Switzerland. 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.”

​Krishnan founded the Akshaya Trust organization in 2003, which helps to feed the homeless and mentally-disabled in Madurai , Tamil Nadu. He serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to 425 indigent and elderly people in Madurai. He was selected as one of the Top 10 in “CNN heroes 2010” list. He has also cremated more than 450+ dead bodies lying on road. He also gives free haircut to homeless.
Here are few videos about him which gives you goosebumps.


Listen to his deeds in his own words in his TEDx talk.

Hope My Unsung Heroes | Narayanan Krishnan has inspired you to do something important. All the best for your next deed.

No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.
