Gandhi Memorial Trust
"It was in 1960 that on Vinoba Bhave's persuation" that Devendra Kumar "became the secretary of the Gandhi Memorial Trust at New Delhi. This gave him an opportunity to interact with many core thinkers of that time such as Rachel Carson, E.F. Schumacher, Ivan Illich, the Dalai Lama and Lanza Dalvasto.
"In 1965, Devendra formed an advisory board of prominent scientists and planners of that time including D.S. Kothari, M.S. Swaminathan, Y. Nayudamma, Sethna, Ramalingaswami, B.D. Tilak, M.G.K. Menon, V.G. Bhide, and A.P. Varma."
