India is a repository of humans with such strength of character, one will never be amazed enough. Stories of generosity, strength, and resilience: such as the story of Kamalathal – or fondly known as Idli Amma, the almost 90-year-old lady who come rain or shine feeds the poor across Tamil Nadu an idli – for just Rupee 1. Something she didn’t let go off even during COVID. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw of Biocon, famously said on WTW that Idli Amma reminds her of her own mother…this is a story of unyielding generosity.
