BRIEF HISTORY OF TRUST Guruswamy Ramesh Chalam
leads devotees to Sabarimala every year and his group is popularly known as Thane Ayyappan Group. The devotee age group ranges from 8 years to 80 years, including students, teenagers, working professionals and senior citizens. Once while on one of these pilgrimages to Sabarimala, Guruswamy was very disturbed with the plight of the poor and needy people in India and casually he proposed the idea of forming a trust to help the poor and needy. The idea was readily accepted by all the devotees and Vedant Ayyappan Trust was formed. The Trust’s name originates from the place where our Grurswami resides and a group of likeminded professionals who are senior executives in different fields manage it. They aspire to follow Guruswamy’s ideals and have the determination to pursue and fulfill his dreams. The inspiration was drawn out of our former president of India, Dr. Shri A. P. J. Abdul Kalam who believes; "Dream is not what you seen in sleep, but it is the thing which will not let you sleep"
