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.

Recognizing his rich contribution, the US government honored him with the 'Man of Millennium' award.

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.
