Narayanan Krishnan, of Madurai, India, gave up his career as a 5-star executive chef to bring love, food & peace to the hungry and abandoned on the streets of India.
According to Wikipedia, “Krishnan founded his nonprofit Akshaya Trust in 2003. Every day, he wakes up at 4 a.m., cooks a simple hot meal and then, along with his team, loads it in a van and travels about 200 kilometres (120 mi) feeding the homeless in Madurai, Tamil Nadu. He serves breakfast, lunch and dinner to 400 indigent and elderly people in Madurai. Since 2003, he has served more than 1.2 million meals.”

How can you sow peace on your street today? It doesn’t have to be on as grand a scale as Narayanan… not all of us are capable of that. But, each of us is capable of showing kindness to a stranger on our street.
