Welcome to the Aseema Trust

The Aseema Trust was founded to build bridges between traditional performing arts and education and Mahatma Gandhi and his ideas of truth and non violence inside and outside schools for young and old. Founded by V.R.Devika in 1998, it is managed by Coordinator and finance manager Vasantha Parthasharathy and a large team of resource persons.
