    This post is in honour of Shri Palam Kalyansundaram, a 75+ retired librarian who is leading a selfless life by donating all his income and savings for the welfare of underprivileged section of the society. He is an inspiration for many, including famous actor Rajnikant who has adopted him as his father.

    He is the recipient of Best Librarian award in India. He is honoured nationally and internationally for his great work for mankind. Like the International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, has honoured him as one of the ‘noblest of the world’ and the United Nations recognised him as one of the most outstanding people of the 20th century. He also received ‘Man of the Millennium’ award by an American organization and Life Time of Service Award from Rotary Club of India in 2011. He even donated the award money which he received.

    He is a noble man working for a noble cause and is the perfect example of active and productive ageing.

    Congrats to PKS Garu who worked for others throughout his life. By all such works, he stood as a Role Model. His simple life and attitude of helping others has been recognized both Nationally & Internationally. We all should follow him to the extent possible. He shown the example to lead SIMPLE LIVING & HIGH THINKING. Tuning to this, the need of the hour is to move towards QUALITY OF LIFE (QOL) rather than madly running towards Standard of Life (SOL). QOL is subjective & support for Happy & Healthy Living rather than SOL which is objective and result for unhealthy environment both for self & others.

    Looking forward to see the change of moving from SOL to QOL.
