Coimbatore is well known for its culture, scores of rich temples and art treasures. The transition from a traditionally beautiful, friendly place to a technology savvy city has become possible because of the pragmatic approach of many young entrepreneurs. This visualization was conceptualized in the form of S.N.R. Sons Charitable Trust in this Manchester of the south India. The trust was founded on 9 February 1970 in order to fulfill the dreams of a great philanthropist and a man of vision Sri.S.N.Rangaswamy Naidu, by his four sons:
Late Prof. P.R.Ramaswami Naidu (Former Principal, GCT)
Late Sri R.Doraiswami Naidu
Late Dr. R.Venkatesalu Naidu
Sri S.N.Rangaswamy Naidu was an ardent devotee of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. His interest in man was as compelling as in God. He wanted to remove ignorance and disease especially from the poor by providing them with education and medical relief. The four sons of this great institution, who founded the Trust, set themselves the task of realizing their beloved father’s ambition.
