The story of V. Venkatraman tells us that heroes don’t just exist on silver screen, but can be found anywhere around you. V. Venkatraman runs a homely mess 15kms away from Erode, a small town in Tamilnadu since 1995. What makes him special is the beautiful service he does of providing food to the needy patients and their relatives for just Rs. 1 only. The reason he charges that Rs. 1 for food is to ensure that people value the food and don’t feel embarrassed taking something for free. He serves close to 30 needy people every day and gives them a small reason to smile, while they deal with their bad times.
