India's 10 Unsung Personalities
Chhavi Rajawat makes it to the list as well. This young MBA degree holder chose to work with rural India and at 32 she is the youngest woman sarpanch of her village Soda, near Jaipur. Her aim is to make her village 100 percent educated. Chhavi also works at her family home-turned-hotel called Kailrugji and has also set up a horse-riding academy in Jaipur.
P Narayanan Krishnan:
Madurai-based Narayanan Krishnan started the Akshaya Trust, an NGO in 2002. The trust has been a blessing for many homeless, ailing and hungry people. In the first year of commencement, Krishnan used his own savings to feed around 30 people. Ever since, he's cooked and served meals to around two million people. Presently, a shelter home is being built to home those in need of shelter. Realizing that there were many Indians living overseas who wanted to contribute to the cause, Krishnan founded Akshaya USA in 2012. The foundation supports the homeless, mentally ill, elderly and the disabled.
