The trustees of transformation
We did a lot of brainstorming on the fact that in spite of having so many trusts, NGOs and non-profit organizations, so many CSR activities and so much of government support, why aren’t things changing at the grass roots levels?
We did a lot of research on how things were managed in ancient ages; after all if we’ve been the oldest surviving civilization, we must’ve had some mechanism to cater to this problem of the society, for uplifting the weaker section of the society and catering to the general well-being of the people. It’s been our culture.
It’s a part of culture that we’ve always thought about equality among people. We are the only country wherein our Gurus have taught us “jo lade deenke het soora so hi” – the one who fights for the poor is the mightiest. With this kind of thought process, we would have definitely made some mechanism for this in our roots and searching for it, we arrived at the “ashram vyavastha” of our ancient culture.
We had four “ashram” in a life time of a person, namely “brahmchrya”, “grihastha”, “vanprastha” and “sanyas”. What took our attraction to the most in our endeavour leading to the formation of TGHF was "vanprastha" or "वनप्रस्थ", which literally means “towards the jungle”. This was one “ashram” in life of each individual in ancient India, wherein one was just supposed to work for the society without any personal gain or selfish motive. After making a living and fortune for himself and his family, one used to hand over the reins to the next generation, and move to advisory role, as the basic income was already set up. Since income wasn’t the prime need, one was able to think of society and its betterment. This was the stage just before “sanyas” when one was supposed to leave the active life and abandon the world.
Secondly, this was the stage by which one had already attained the skill and knowledge through which he had been able to survive, lead a family life and made enough saving and mechanism for his next generation to kill the greed for more. Thirdly, it was the time to give it back to the society, and this used to come naturally as one would have “seen it and done it” all of what we know as the worldly pleasures & possessions. Only a man at this stage would contribute to the society and that’s how we selected the trustees of transformation.
We have Mr. Naveen Verma, who started his carrier in 1993, having over twenty two year of rich experience in IT industry, wherein he has worked for multi-nations, travelled many countries, worked for start-ups, started his own enterprise, created one of the biggest system integration company in Delhi and left it to be managed by younger generation, started all over again, rolled over and cantered again. He is a seasoned entrepreneur with a proven track record and a stalwart of the industry. Today he works as a CEO of his own creation in IT systems integration.
And we have Mr. Madhukar Swayambhu, who started his carrier in 1995, has worked for many start-ups, built his own enterprise, left it to the other partners & stake holders, worked as a consultant, travelled many countries and deep of India, worked for many Indian and multi-national IT giants and is heading a multinational as Vice President for Indian & SAARC region, today.
The very fact that both have experienced building own enterprise and leaving it for others, gives them a sensibility of selflessness in worldly possessions and a courage to look beyond. The value system thus created is in line with our core philosophy of "सर्वेभवन्तुसुखिनः" and therefore contributes towards strengthening of the same.
With such kind of Trustees on board we can ensure the transformation to happen, as they are quite well settled in their lives and the trust is not the bread earner for them. With their rich experience in the fields, they can mobilize the things and with their contact in the industry they can enables things for the benefit of the society. Unlike other Trusts, our trustee are our first donors.
