Inaugurations at Aadiriyedath

The hospital and special school

I had invited the Patron to my home. He came along with another trustee. It is such a pleasure to meet people with a passion. At 66 yrs, he could have chosen to sit back and enjoy a retired life among children and grandchildren. He still has fire and a burning passion to give back to society. May be in another post I should narrate the story of how this Illam (a Namboothiri Family Home) was converted to charity by one man's passion and an entire family's unflinching support.

With him he got along a CD with pictures of the inauguration and fliers to hand out to people I meet and talk to.

The institutions that are now functional are:
  • Aishwarya School of Special Children (A home for mentally retarded, handicapped and orphans)
  • Aadiriyedath Hospital and Research Centre (Ayurveda)
"These two institutions were inaugurated on 11th May 2008, by Mr. K Radhakrishnan, the Honorable Speaker, Kerala Legislative Assembly in the presence of Mr. Suresh Kurup, M.P. (Lok Sabha), Mr. Babu Balassery, MLA, Kerala Legislative Assembly in the august presence of many prominent persons." says the letter I received from the trust.
