 I was so unfortunate to have gone to this channel by morning around 7.45 AM when the interview was half way , and an individual by name Shri.N.S.Venkatraman was interviewed by Dhoordarshan Tamil Channel Podhigai . I say unfortunate since I could not watch the program from the beginning.

This gentleman is a product of IIT and IIM ,Ahmedabad, and his wife only by their income run Computer training centers in Chennai and some other towns for the students and those stopped their education since they could not afford further education, and differently capable persons without charging any fee . And subsequently he found out that even after imparting training and soft skills , the less fortunate were not able to place themselves in jobs since they could not even buy News Papers. So he started helping in placement also .Now nearly past five or six years this family helped around 6000 people in getting the jobs, particularly the youngsters from below poverty line families.

He never advertises what he does and people come to know of these centers by word of mouth and he does not collect donations even he goes around the world many a time for his business purposes, reason he says , since many from India in the name of NGOs go abroad and almost like a road show collect donations saying India is a poor country, so they went there and did what they do normally. So detests doing that and even anyone who comes to know of what he does and visits his office and offering some money , especially foreigners he refuses saying many people are ready even in our country to do that. Even if someone comes and says that they want to give some donations for good cause , he asks them for whom they want to give , so he collects and sends the money like old age homes and genuine needy people and receipt of the same he gets and sends them to the people who handed over money to him.

Now he is very much worried since , in sunday evenings normally 60 or 70 people come to his house to tell their woes,  60 % of them are ladies , whose complaint is husbands are drunkards and so they come to say their plight.He feels almost 60 % of the males of the families of below poverty line in Tamil Nadu are drunkards and he feels so anguished over the fact that even boys of such families drink when they come of the age of around 12 or 14.He feels the greatest menace of poor families in Tamil Nadu is drinking alcohol which is the prime reason of the problems of the 35% of the below poverty line population.

Wife beating, sons forced to go for jobs when they study in the schools are consequences.

He is so humane in his speech , manners and body language very strongly reflects his heart and mind.

So noble a soul to be emulated by the rest of the rich people in this country.

My heart was brimming with happiness while watching the interview given by Shri.N.S.Venkatram of chennai.

it is true that we can not find solutions to all problems our country and fellow humans face. but it should not stop any one from doing what little help one may be able to provide.Even if one poor man gets the benefit of education from any one of us - it is worth one's efforts.Thank you for sharing the inspirational story.

good that you covered this program here. unfortunately such blogs do get buried among valueless ones. it is a pity that the TASMAC is spoiling the people while the coffers are getting filled in. When schools, colleges, industries and offices were closed for the Tamil conference, TASMAC were working overtime. this is the pathetic news. Nallaar oruvar ularel avar poruttu ellorkkum peyyum mazhai - we do get rains because of people like Venkatram. thank you for sharing.

regards,
Gopal

Thanks Uttam for your post and highlighting the service rendered by Mr N.S.Venkatraman and his wife. Such people get unnoticed in this political set up. People do very little and telling around would only get recognition. That is our society. I would welcome you to my blog space too.
