Every so often, you come across the story of a remarkable person. This is a person who changes their entire life’s trajectory for others- because of love. They don’t consider how to “improve” their own lives through increased status, money, or influence. They only see others. And they only see their ability to help. This is the purpose of life, according to them.
Narayanan Krishnan is one such person. His story is the most powerful story that I have heard in a long time. He seems to me, to be a male counterpart to Mother Teresa.
I love this story. I love that he is a common person who saw a need. I love that he clearly saw how he could help. I love the courage he had to change his course.
