There is a notable refinement between a ruler and a king. While a ruler is an administrative jurisdiction who commands the state and works for its betterment, a king is always a people’s man. The king envisions his people to commence a happy experience by working for their betterment and equality.
In today’s world, it’s easy to find a ruler in forms of government officials who are administrating the entire earth. However, observing a king, in today’s self-centred universe, is a herculean task. When the whole human hood is busy for its own survival and advancement, finding a selfless guy, devoted to society is a rare sight.
However, even today, we find a lot of people who lead a king’s life of sacrifice and atonement for the people of the country. There’s one such charismatic personality living in Odisha. He is none other than Er. Ashok Kumar Jalan.
Ashok Jalan is truly a people’s man. He believes in the philosophy of service to humanity and compares it with service to god. Born in the year 1952, Ashok is a graduate from Burla Engineering College. With over four decades of professional experience, Er. Ashok Kumar Jalan is a notable personality in the field of academics and politics.
A few years back, Er. Jalan started Ashok Kumar Foundations (AJF). Since then, he has been a messiah for the common people of the state by providing them with dustbins, ambulances, mobile blood donation van, patient transportation van, toilets, cold drinking water units, passenger waiting sheds, stainless steel benches, wheelchairs, kids playing equipment, and many many more basic amenities.
Ashok Kumar foundation is also actively involved in helping the people during the time of utmost need and emergency. Till today, the foundation has provided thousands of people with calamity relief products and blankets to the needy street beggars. The organization also operates hostels for poor students and provides vans to carry dead bodies as well.
Ashok Kumar Foundation also works towards the restoration of planet earth from the brute effect of pollution by planting thousands of trees in a year.
A king lives for eternity. His body may perish, but people honour his soul and good deads forever. Ashok Kumar, along with his wife has pledged to donate their bodies after their death for educational and research purpose. Such is the dynamic personality of Kumar.
