Yes, it was around 5.30 AM today 14th Sept 2003, and my phone was ringing. Awakened by an untimely call, we woke up to hear the demise of Mr. S M Krishanan, a family friend of ours. Our Acquaintance dates back to a decade, time provided this great opportunity to meet him, when he was helping lots of social organizations and common ppl.
A person, we would be missing for the rest of our life. A man of a character with unquestionable honesty and straight forwardness, a Gandhian by principle, and a human who lead, a most modest life in Chennai. You could never imagine an MLA to be so modest and so straight forward and still be in politics. Yes you heard it right, he was elected as a Member of Legistlative Assembly from the Tambaram constituency. But when you speak to him or when you see him, he would look so simple that you would never admit that he was an MLA!
I have never come across such modest political leaders who donít even own a car and travel by bus. (He is currently in charge for the agricultural sector of Tamil Nadu Congress). Call him any time, he is there to help his fellow human beings and make their life peaceful. He has 72 years of experience in this materialistic world, where more than 50% of his life was devoted to social service. A freedom fighter who has actively participated from the Gandhian times.
Lots of things can be said about this great person who lived the Gandhian principles in its truest forms.
Sir, you have left us with those moments that you have spent with us, I could still hear your voice and the pats that you gave me.
You may not be living with us anymore, but those moments that you have spent with us will be guarded heavily in our hearts for the rest of our life.
Thank you God for providing us the opportunity to live along with such great people.
India! You just lost yet another great son of yours.
