Narayanan Krishnan was born into an orthodox Hindu community. As a member of a Brahmin family and caste, his duty was to live a life of purtiy, holiness and spiritual awareness, always apart, as a teacher and leader. But in this tradition, a teacher cannot be a servant. In 2002, while working as one of the top chefs in India, Narayanan suddenly quit his job after seeing an old man eating filth in desperate hunger.
