Extract from Golden jubilee message of K. Kamaraj

        The Gandhi Ashram, Tiruchengodu is the standing monument for Rajaji who was its founder. He was compelled to start the Ashram when he found grinding poverty, unemployment and starvation which stalked the land. The Ashram was a great service centre to attend relief to poor. From this centre Gandhiji’s Gospel was radiated around. Rajaji rought cheer to poverty – striken villagers and gave them employment through the Charkha, and other ameliorative activities of the Ashram. He brought light and happiness where there was darkness and misery. Over a period of fifty years the Gandhi Ashram has been carrying on the work unostentatiously.
