Documentary on Haji Abdullh: Founder of Corporation Bank

This is just a brilliant (and highly tragic) documentary (youtube) on Haji Abdullah who found Corporation Bank in Udupi in 1906. He was a philanthropist and they say charity started with him. He gave up all his wealth for public purposes and eventually died owing money to the bank he formed. It was an absolute tragedy.

Apart from Corporation Bank, he contributed to many social and economic activities in the region.
