The Art Of Giving : Narayanan Krishnan

What makes a human different from any other living things in the world, is it that they are good at making barriers with the name, religious, race, cast (never ending), or it’s that they are good at making a huge scams and pollute the world better than any other things on the earth. Well to be honest this is what we see and hear around us. But do we ever question our self “WHAT IS THE MY PURPOSE OF MY LIFE?”, even If we do that, the answer would very simple… “To get a high paid job and settle in foreign countries.” This may not be true in all cases but this is majorly happening. It doesn’t mean that there is standard answer to that, it just means that the answer to that question tells you what and who you are.

That very answer made a chef in a start hotel in to one of CNN’s   TOP 10 hero award, NARAYANAN KRISHNAN born in 1981 Madhuri, TamilnNadu. He was a simple man working in a Taj Hotel in Bangalore as a chef until the year 2002, when one day he saw a man eating human waste in hunger which changed his life once for all. This devastating incident made him quit his job and came out with an idea of feeding the needy people on the street who are abandoned, forgotten and left by the society. Since then he never looked back, in the year 2003 he established a small trust named “AKSHAYA” which started feeding the freshly cooked breakfast and meals to 30 people in the beginning and since then it served around 1.7 million meals till 2011 and still going on .

Narayan not only prepares and serves food but also does haircut, shaves and also provides them with the basic needs. He received many awards for his noble work like V-Rhythm award in 2011 at Malaysia, and was selected as one of top 10 CNN hero’s in the year 2010 and many more prestigious awards.

There are many other out there in our society who work and dedicated their life for the betterment of others and you don’t have to know the person to help with what you can, all you need is a helping heart. That’s all it takes to live for others and bring a change around you. At the end of the day what is that makes them different, it’s “SATISFACTION”. Because it’s true that our secret of life lies in the happiness of the others and that makes us human a spices with emotion and love for one another.

I am Drowning by Maxine Mathew

I am Drowning by Maxine Mathew

I am drowning.

I am drowning in failed hopes.

I am drowning in the disappointed faces.

I am drowning in my failure.

I try to rise,

To gasp for breath,

But am pushed down by the onslaught,

Of expectations,

Of disappointments.

 

I am drowning.

I am drowning in my unfulfilled promises.

I am drowning in my failed dreams.

I am drowning in my hopelessness.

I cry for help,

Yet none come forth.

I am overwhelmed,

By the jeering,

By the ruthless mocking.

 

I am drowning.

I look for motivation, but  I find none.

They expect, yet don’t support.

I am drowning in the discouragement.

I am turning back,

I am giving up.

But what is that,

I see a light, a bright shining light.

It seems to be calling to me.

Is it my redemption or just another cruel joke?

 

Yet it calls to me, just me.

I extend my hands towards it.

I can’t touch it yet,

Yet towards it I strive.

It is untouched, unhampered by expectations.

It is my dream.

I was drowning,

But now in my untouched dream,

I have found my redeemer.

A 1947 Love Story… in 2013

It was the evening on 3rd January where I was rambling with one of my buddy on the eve of completion of my semester final exams. The aroma of pizza from the Rasoi, a small food court near my house where delicious pizza’s are supplied grabbed us and we decided to order the pizza’s and pasta.

I was standing in the queue to order the food,Suddenly my heart started beating fast,sensing something different for the first time and my loose hair  flying for the winter breeze covering my face and I was trying to push it back of my ears.  Meanwhile I  heard a manly voice saying Execuse me! Your dupatta  back of me, I turned back and was pulling my dupatta from that man’s face. He wore a black T-shirt that enhancing his six pack and was handsome with the beard and mustache which made him look more manly.

For a minute I felt like he is the man every girl wants……He and his friend’s sat opposite to us and having the pizza, I was staring at him and he stared back , our eyes met for almost five minutes completely ignoring the world around us until he got a call.. He got up and went into a black scorpio hurriedly numbered AP15 BC 1947 by waving a smile at me and he drove fast.. I could not forget him From that day and ma eyes are always in search of 1947…
