Bangalore: K.V. Ramani, the co founder of nasscom, that represents and sets the tone for public policy for the Indian software industry is also a successful entrepreneur who founded Chennai-based Future Software and co-founded Hughes Software in Delhi. This man is just not an entrepreneur who runs behind money but he is also a well known philanthropist. His philanthropic activities can inspire many entrepreneurs to follow this path; reports rediff.com.



Ramani was recently in news for one such activity where he built and donated Sai Ashram for Rs 110 crore and handed it over to Sri Saibaba Sansthan. This Ashram will formally be inaugurated by President Pranab Mukherjee on November 16. Apart from this, Ramani also extends his services by donating 80 percent of his total earnings to the Shirdi Sai Trust.



Being a devotee of Shiridi Sai Baba
Ramani became a diehard devotee of Shiridi Sai Baba 35 years ago, when he was 27 year old. He was never a spiritual person and nor was he a devotee of Sai Baba.

4: I could see many giving wrong notions than appreciating his contribution, how many amongst us would really do if at all we are like Mr. Ramani. May be he used Sai ashram as a medium through which he can share his wisdom, being that successful entrepreneur all these years, for sure he must be wise enough to contribute such huge amount.

7: Sai Baba trust now be richer then Tirupati trust & vaishno devi trust & a one stage they have billon of money but for what, they appoint any trustee & use such money for there personal uses. I think if Mr.Ramani want to donate there money then build any school or hospital for poor people of Top level as Tata Memorial & make command to self made trust. If think how many top level hospital of school in eastern India or in Rajasthan. we have amenities for develop location but not for UN-develop location.

8: great work??? for what?? Will the Saibaba trust distribute it to needy bleeding entrepreneurs?? will they help committing suicide farmers across India. will they help genuinley poor & medically deproved people for their daily breads & health issue.
It would have been really better if he has made two funds- one for helping people other of entrepreneurs funding them so that more employment can be generated & more lives could be serverd in better way.

10: Pl write the main facts e.g. he gives away 80% and what it is used for, closer to the beginning. Most people do NOT read the complete article and his philanthropy would remain unknown. (Aside: then Hindus are accused of not giving as their massive nonsectarian charity rarely receives publicity!) The article needs editing, word reduction and some more style....

11: Sai baba never happy for your work,only trust persons happy ,because they found big amount of money. If really worship sai baba so please think about baba work and Ideology .More and more people and women died and if baba alive then he save his/her life not too collect money for rich priests .Think your spent money culture.

16: Hats of KV Ramani ji,
Every entrepreneur will have money. But using them for society can only be done by people like Ramani.

It's really a noble gesture.
Posted by:UBG - 19 Nov, 2012
17: It's once own choice what they want to do with their money.
since comments are invited, i am sure that he would have done his due diligence before donating- and he has been smart to construct and hand over - to be sure of best end use.
Great ongoing effort and is surely commendable- whatever way you contribute to society at large is surely a noble gesture.
Sh. K V Ramani you are great Sir ji.

20: Hats off. Great effort true human being. Very very few people left in the world who have genuine heart and a feeling for a fellow human being. Not many people not even parents care for their children in this yuga who will care for together. Great job sir. Hope others also take a cue from this and live up.

In my opinion Mr. Ramani did correct and such things should be happen to check the loyalty and honesty of trustees of any religious sansthan. Baba gave him that much as Ramani desired and Ramani offered Baba as Baba ordered to him. He had no other way but to obey his(
