A common man just passing by a railway station to his destination sees a fight, a fight between a human and animals. It was for food.! Cruel hunger had made a mentally ill man to battle with the street dogs over a disposed food in garbage bin. The common man who was observing this was Mr. U C Paulose. It hit him hard. There came a thought in his mind what if this happened to me? What if this happens to my wife or children? Because, we all know that anyone can be sick. This was the thought that didn’t allow MR. U C Paulose to rest. Immediately after reaching home he narrated the same with his wife, Mrs. Mary U P and both came to a decision, that was to look after such destitute people as much as they can at their own home along with their children. Thus, came to existence “Seon Ashram” which is help for the helpless and Home for the homeless.
