All, check this out..

This guy is a real hero.
Hats off to him Forward it to as much as people as you can
Madurai:  If you had not heard of Narayanan Krishnan, as I had not, it
is a collective failure. This is one of the most incredible stories of
personal commitment.
Narayanan 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.
Eight 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, 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 organization Akshaya Trust,
and now hopes to extend this to shelter for the homeless too.
Krishnan is the only Indian in a list of 10 heroes that CNN has picked
worldwide to honor. One of them will be chosen CNN Hero of the Year,
selected by the public through an online poll. If many Indians get
together to vote for this inspiring man, he can win by a long mile.
If Krishnan wins he will get $100,000 in addition to the $25,000 that he
gets for being shortlisted for the Top 10. Akshaya Trust needs all the
monetary support it can get to build on Krishnan's dream. Let's help him
get there.
To vote, follow the link:
We are crawling the Web for more great videos, tweets pictures, blogs

through November 18 at 6 a.m. ET.
