Among the people who've devoted their entire life to a social cause is P Kalayanasundaram from Tamil Nadu. This gold medallist librarian not only dedicated his life to the needy but also donated his salary, every single month for the 35 years that he was working. To make ends meet, the 60-year-old had no qualms about doing menial jobs. Even when his pension came through, he ensured it was put to a good use.
Around Tamil Nadu, he is known as 'Paalam' P Kalayanasundaram, the NGO he set up. Paalam in Tamil means a 'bridge'. Thus, the organization acts as a link between those who wish to donate and those who need the donations. Paalam receives the money, good, clothes etc from benefactors and passes them on to those who need it.
