Narayanan KrishnanNarayanan Krishnan, all of 29 years old now, does what he was professionally trained to do as a chef. Feed people. Only Krishnan does not do this in the swanky confines of a 5-star hotel. Every day, he wakes up at 4 am, cooks a simple hot meal and then, along with his team,  loads it in a van and travels about 200 km feeding the homeless in  Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

Krishnan feeds, often with his hands,  almost 400 destitute people every day. And for those who need it, he provides a free haircut too. He was selected as one of the Top 10 in “CNN heroes 2010” list.

According to CNN, 8 years ago, this award-winning chef with a  five-star hotel chain was all set to go to Switzerland for a  high-profile posting. On a visit to a Madurai temple, he came across a  homeless, old man eating his own human waste. That stark sight changed  Krishnan’s life.
Much to the dismay of his parents, CNN says,  Krishnan abandoned his career plans and decided to spend his life and  his professional training in looking after those who could not care for  themselves. He has provided more than 1.2 million hot meals through his  nonprofit organisation Akshaya Trust, and now hopes to extend this to  shelter for the homeless too.” Excerpt from an article dated October 20, 2010.
