Rtn. H. Govindaraju was born in 1963 in Thanjavur in an agricultural family. He has in-depth understanding about the labour class and how they have been denied fair opportunities to come up in life. He aims to improve their well-being. Being a post graduate in Yoga and Human Excellency, he always wanted to see good in everything.
