As I was browsing the internet for articles and news, I stumbled on a great post on A post by Shobha Warrier narrating the story of an ordinary person who went to lead an extraordinary life - The Good Samaritan named Kalyanasundaram. My heartfelt thanks to the author, Shobha Warrier and for the contribution. I really enjoyed reading it. This wonderful post left me thinking a lot. I am sure it is engaging and thought provoking. It is bound to influence our thinking and actions in many ways.

I felt that the story of this great person should reach a greater audience. It should become an example to any and everyone who reads it. I never ever felt the need to share the post greater. This reminds me of the quote..

The noblest of the deed begins with the passion of thinking and caring about another person.
