P Kalyanasundaram, nobleness beyond words
Chennai: An epitaph of altruism, P Kalyanasundaram, has been conferred with the 'Man of Millennium' for being an example of exemplary saint-hood. The social worker from Tamil Nadu has rendered his flawless services to orphans and needy as he donated his entire salary since last thirty years.

Kalyanasundaram had worked as a librarian for 30 years. He has not only donated his salary for the good cause but also contributed the sum of 10 lakh rupees, which was his entire pension, to the people in need.

Sundaram enjoys enviable status of becoming the first person who has donated his entire earnings for a social cause. Recognizing his rich contribution, the US government honored him with the 'Man of Millennium' award. He received Rs 30 crore as the award money but moving on his charity path, he donated the whooping sum of Rs 30 crores for the people in need.

How he entered into the social service, is an interesting story. During his college days the Indo-China war broke out, and he decided to contribute his gold chain to the then Chief Minister, Kamaraj, for the war fund.

He met Balasubramanian, Editor, Ananda Vikatan, after he donated his chain for the war fund. Sundaram was about to speak about his noble cause when Subramanian said Sundaram that he will write about him only when he will donate something from his earnings.

Taking the editor's words as a challenge, Sundaram quietly went away. He vowed to live his life only for the social welfare. He is a bachelor and has dedicated his life to serve the society.

South super star Rajinikanth has adopted him as his father. He is a bachelor and has dedicated his life to serve society. United Nations Organizations (UNO) has honored him as Outstanding People of the 20th Century.
