We have seen some film personalities for whom temples have been built in their honour like Mumta Kulkarni (Hindi actress of yesteryears who also worked in South Indian films) and Kushboo (South Indian heroine of yesteryears ). It reflects how the film personalities are treated simply not like semi-gods, but Full Gods !

But the story of Krishnaiah, a retired bank manager from Sidapur in Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, India is same except to the point that the person who drove him to build a temple is his own mother. He built a temple of his mother in his own land, by spending Rs. 3 lakhs and now doing daily ritual to the idol, certainly a commanding act of rarity !


Sometimes, inspiration comes from unexpected quarters.

Ever since the internet stormed our lives, it has changed our very DNA. This seeping revolution has turned the world into a global village and re-defined the way we seek information. The phenomenal growth of social-networking sites epitomize the kind of connected society we have like never before.
