Prof M S Swaminathan’s tribute to Dr Azim Premji on his Gandhian concept of Trusteeship
Chennai, March 14, 2019: My good friend the late Russi Lala always used to cite you as the example of approaching to your surplus wealth as a trustee and not as the owner (Gandhian concept of trusteeship). I am therefore extremely happy to see the announcement of your further major commitment to philanthropy. I hope this will stimulate others to follow your example. I thank you and pray for your good health and personal happiness in the years to come.
