Man cannot live in isolation, however great he may be.
He depends on society in every walk of life. It, therefore becomes his bounden duty to give back to society what he receives from it. It will, indeed, be a wasted life if he cannot pay back this debt to society, albeit in little measure, during his lifetime. This can be done if man is constantly tuned to the wants of the less privileged.
Today the world is a boiling cauldron of social ills like illiteracy, ill health and poverty, compounded by natural disasters like earthquakes and floods. If only each one of us take up cudgels against just one issue and make it our business to alleviate the problem!How wonderful if each one of us made it our life’s mission to provide just one family with the basic necessities of Anna, Akshara and Arogya…food, education and health! But engaging oneself in social service is no mean task. It should not be indulged in for the sake of fame or fortune.
With a view to propagate education, research and service to humanity at large, In its journey of commitments to the nation for more than Four Decades, the Sri Adichunchanagiri Shikshana Trust has established a number of educational institutions running mainly in Medical, Nursing, Engineering, Management, General Education, Pharmacy, Ayurvedic, etc. These institutes of the trust are located throughout the state of Karnataka, Salem and Erode in Tamil Nadu, having strength of more than 10 million students.
