Late Sri Ajit Kumar, a gold medalist in both Electrical and Mechanical Engineering branches, graduated from University Vishweshwaraiah College of Engineering, Bangalore. He founded the Hindu Seva Prathishthana in 1980 and was its founder Director. He was born on 27th Aug 1934. His father, Sri Bramha Suraiah, and mother Smt. Putta Tayamma, hailed from the village Gudibande in the vicinity of Bangalore. He was a great social worker with many innovative social experiments to his credit. His unique style of functioning was based on the principle “Concern for all, attachment to none”. He was often called “A saint in a hurry”. After his graduation in 1957, till his last breath in 1990, he was a full time social worker and a bachelor. An unfortunate road accident cut short his life when he was just 56.
Having the legendary Yogacharya Shri. B.K.S. Iyengar and Shri. Pattabhi Jois as his mentors, he became an authority on Yoga and an expert in the field. Besides taking up Homeopathy, to which he was introduced by Dr. Krishnamurthy, he showed great interest in Psychology, Accountancy, Anatomy and other such disciplines. He strived for excellence in all walks of life. Hindu Seva Prathisthana is his brain child.
