AiR Humanitarian Homes was founded in 1998 by AiR (Atman in Ravi), a
renowned philanthropist, spiritualist, author, speaker, motivator and singer. AiR
was greatly influenced by the words of Vivekananda: Shiv Jnani Jan Seva,
Service to Humanity is Prayer to God. Hence, this spirit of service constitutes
the core philosophy of AiR Humanitarian Homes. Ever since their inception,
these three altruistic establishments, spread across Bangalore in Bannerghatta,
Chikkagubbi Village (Kothanur), and Chandapura have been able to save
thousands of lives by providing timely medical help and a home to the destitute
AiR, at first, transformed his life from Ravi Melwani to RVM. After a successful career as a businessman who revolutionised the world of retailing in India, he realized that life is not just about making money. He shut down his business at the age of 40, and transformed to RVM. He started doing H.I.S. work – Humanitarian, Inspirational and Spiritual work. This transformation was followed by a spiritual metamorphosis when he realized that we are not the body, but the Soul, the Atman. He gave up his entire life as RVM and metamorphosed to AiR.
