Sushma Swaraj comes to the rescue of Russian man found begging outside Kancheepuram temple

11th October 2017   ·   0 Comments

Tamil Nadu Police came to help a Russian citizen who sat at the entrance of Sri Kumarakottam temple in Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu, seeking alms.
A Evangelin,24, arrived in India on October 8. He expressed his wish to visit several temples and monuments in south India. He was advised to visit the temple town of Kancheepuram and reached there yesterday.
Evangelin had gone for currency exchange and when he exhausted the exchanged money, he visited a nearby ATM which for some reason blocked his card.
Evangelin struggled with the language barrier and cash crunch.
He roamed around Kancheepuram and decided to sleep on a footpath near a temple. He woke up to a scene with several beggars who had gathered outside the temple.
Having no money, he was compelled to sit with other beggars and spread out his cap to get some money.
