Founder - Secretary - Aji Krishnan

To know and explore the real India one has to linger around the street lanes of remote villages in India since that’s the place where one can readily find the real and bare faces of India.Aji Krishnan, fortunate enough to be born in one such village of Kerala. It is the key reason as to why he meticulously identifies the environmental impediments, from generations their family were into pastoral and agro based occupations. His father, Sri C.K. Krishnan was a planter and a frontier in bringing up group farming in the high ranges of Kerala and mother, Smt. V.K. Omana was a prolific and devoted teacher. His parents influenced him largely, if he has attained the disposition of being a philanthropist today; it is because of his father who played a significant role in bringing poor farmers together and forms the group to do group cultivation, which helped the farmers intensely. Since his parents kept accommodated and he is the eldest at home from the nascent young age, he had to become the mentor for both his sibling and advocate to resolve any crisis. These obligations naturally made him a matured and helpful person that he is today. He was an active participant in the co-curricular activities in his school. During his University graduation, he was a state committee member of the Left Wing student group. He additionally conducted many educational reformation strikes. He was arrested by police and was put behind the bars. Further, he went through tormenting polite harassment as well. He was an enterprising and vibrant member of the cultural club in school and showed his keen interest in the rest of the academic and non-academic pursuits. Apart from these plenty of undertakings it is his motivation, strategy and action that chalk out the characteristic traits of his fearless career.

Recapitulating the past, like any other young layman Aji Krishnan started his college days with a bucket of sky-high dreams, all good and bad encounters of his school life and experiences he then procured at pre-degree college made him ponder about our education system. The observation that illiteracy and destitution are flip sides of the same coin disturbed him, he wished to bring a change in the whole system and he started to think like a revolutionist, it was this passion that brought him into the Frontline of students’ politics. He was passionately interested and successfully participated in the university level election and represented the college, at that time he took leadership for many revolutionary strikes for the innovative educational reformations in Kerala for which he was not only put behind the bars but also had to go through a daunting police distress. He represented the oppressed and closed section of student segment and led forward from the front fighting for justice. Since he grew up in a village, the beauty and admiration for the nature had inspired the artist in him. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Arts, simultaneously his interest developed in sculpture making and freehand painting. In fact, he wanted to shape and design the future of humankind. He graduated from Govt. R L V College of Fine Arts, Trippunithura, specialized in sculpture making. Later he became an active member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). When cultural and intellectual degradation began in the party, the leaders of the party away from the common people due to their trading policies, soon after the sad demise of the great leader EMS, his mind, thoughts were wounded, and hence he left the party in 1995.

After completion of his graduation, Aji Krishnan had to choose between joining his family farming and plantation business or pursue his own dream; he started his career working as a sub editor of the magazine “EKOPANAM” which was published in Kerala. As part of the job he had to travel all over India during this journey he saw the actual India the poor and underprivileged, this left a big mark on his mind and he decided to uplift them from their pathetic plight of brutal realities.

Fostering Humanism through HRDS INDIA
HRDS INDIA has implemented various projects for the development of Poor, Women Empowerment, Tribal Development and Child Help projects. HRDS INDIA had successfully developed more than 3500 Self Help groups, each consisting of five people and gave them training and monetary aid for doing various types of farming. Another project of HRDS INDIA, “Micro credit initiative HRDS INDIA and Gramin bank of Bangladesh” financing program was successfully implemented with Aid from Nobel prize winner Dr. MohmmedYounis funds, which helped to create an income source for many families from the state Tamilnadu and Kerala. Under Women Empowerment project developed by HRDS INDIA more than 540 women were given skill development training and helped them to get placement in various SSI units in South India. For the school going children HRDS INDIA provides kits consisting of a pair of uniform, footwear, umbrellas and some books. As the Secretary of HRDS INDIA it is the sheer dedication and determination of Aji Krishnan the reason behind the successful implementation of all this program and the success of HRDS INDIA.

HRDS INDIA is a registered Non-Governmental Organization founded and endowed by Founder Secretary Aji Krishnan and President Dr. S. Krishnakumar IAS (Retd), Former Union Minister. The organization diligently works for the development of the Rural and Tribal people and takes development programs to interior and physically inaccessible areas of the country. HRDS INDIA had been formed in the year 1997to pursue wider social aims, through strengthening of the downtrodden and weaker sections of society. It is a committed organization with core normative values, which has extensive roots in the rural & high range territories of Kerala and is resolutely devoted in constructing houses for the indigenous native people. It is also actively involved in “DDUGKY”-A Skill development program whereby the objective is to develop a workforce empowered with the necessary and continuously upgraded skills, knowledge and internationally recognized qualifications to gain access to decent employment and ensure competitiveness in the dynamic global market.HRDS INDIA successfully identifies the needs of livelihood and understands the philosophy governing the concept of oppressed as well as segregated groups. They strive towards propagandizing activities to relieve suffering and promote the interest of the poor as their immediate concerns are being readily addressed.

One such initiative took up by HRDS INDIA is “Ekagrah”- A Scholarship Program that facilitates financial aid for higher education and consists of both need- and merit-based aid, in forms such as grants, loans, tuition remission, and private or institutional scholarships.Therefore, pecuniary variables, particularly NGO funded scholarships, plays an increasingly large role in attempts to support student success in higher education.Also there are varied functions in accordance with the programmes they undertake i.e. they provide essential basic services like housing roads, school education and primary health care services into the habitations of the marginalized people in distant remote areas.Principles of altruism and volunteerism remain key defining features of HRDS INDIA. Therefore, it makes an honest endeavor to empower the marginalized, so that they can stand on their own feet with self-reliance and depend less on charity and concessions, protecting them from the exploitative clutches of the society. Their conventional volunteerism is aimed primarily at charitable works, ushering in social reforms by providing relief and rehabilitation for the people who became victims of natural calamities like draught, flood, cyclones etc.

Another enterprising and visionary project, “Karshaka” under which there would be a large cultivation of cost effective medicinal plants as these are more affordable than conventional medicines and also is easier to obtain than prescription based medicine. The project brings awareness to the benefits of medicinal plants that has taken a backseat in the present times. How natural healing stabilizes hormones and metabolism, giving strength in the immune system with lesser side effects. HRDS INDIA simultaneously supports Niramaya Traditional Indian Medicine Research for important information about disease trends and risk factors of non-natural medicines, outcomes of treatment or public health interventions, functional abilities, patterns of health care and use.In addition to this, it runs effective projects in service deficient tribal areas and addresses the tribal problems and issues more consistently and adequately. It further provides them with requisite amenities for the noble and respectable living and imparts skill development training to the youth dwelling there.

Its efforts are directed at rehabilitating total human development and bringing a social change through awareness as well as forming local level organizations to ensure social justice and self-reliance. A very apt mode to explicate this self-reliance and social justice through empowering disempowered women in India. This productive idea is taken forward by HRDS INDIA through “Jwalamukhi”-A women empowerment project for progression of women under pressed circumstances. Hence, it is an attempt to analyze the status of women empowerment in India using various indicators like women’s financial autonomy, freedom of movement, political participation, acceptance of unequal gender role, exposure to media, access to education, experience of domestic violence, etc. The NGO is well versed in community motivation and social mobilization, thus they are increasingly delving into philanthropic programs of the government.

One of its main projects is “Sadhgraha” a Tribal housing project for three lakh houses all across India, particularly in the states like Assam, Jharkhand, Tripura, Odisha, Gujarat and Kerala wherein they facilitate free boarding and lodging to tribal children for higher education and ensures the promotion of participatory character of the highly backward and deprived children by organizing them into better social collectives. The ongoing execution of the same in Palakkad and Wayanad exhibits the project’s headway in leading it to wider horizons. It would soon cover the regions of Trivandrum and Idukki to drag the tribes of this area into the mainstream.

From 1999, he moved to the North East India, where he initially set up an NGO in Imphal, Manipur by the name of the Boys Town Foundation, which is a non profit, non political and non religious organization aimed at visualizing a self-sustaining, self-reliant and dignified community where people live responsibly, striving for a just, equal and harmonious society.

The pioneering activity consisted in establishing a structure which began catering for 23 orphaned boys in 2005. The heart of compassion made him branch out into identifying clever but poor students from the remotest villages of Manipur and began supporting them for their education. Such a work began to gain acceptance even among government circles and gradually spread to the other six north eastern states of Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal, Tripura and Mizoram gradually culminate in various Community Development Programs and Community Health Projects supported by friends and benefactors from India, Italy and Austria. Along with this, the preaching and healing ministry across the villages of the North East gained wide popularity and today, he is an internationally acclaimed preacher with support groups all over and is constantly involved in reaching across to the needy people regardless of caste, creed and belief systems. Conflict resolution and peace building among the various tribes of the North East made him gain proximity to government servants and Ministers and the Manipur Government recognized his services by allotting a completed building together with 75 cents of land in 2015. Citations and commendations from renowned personalities in the North East is an added proof of the commitment he has to the North East India.
