Who is Baba Ramdev? 

He was born 25 Dec 1965 as Ram Krishna Yadav to Gulabo Devi and Ram Nivas Yadav in the village Ali Saiyad Pur of Mahendragarh district in Haryana,India.
He was inspired by the portraits of 'RamPrasad Bismil' and 'Netaji Subhash ChandraBose' that were hung in his room.  As soon as he grew up and read the autobiography of Ram Prasad 'Bismil', his mind was totally washed. After completing middle education (8th Std) from Shahjadpur Haryana, he joined Aarsh (Arya) Gurukul, Khanpur and studied Sanskrit and Yoga under the guidance of Achary Pradumn.
Eventually when he came in the contact of another saint Achary Baldevji, he renounced worldly life and entered into Sanyas and changed his original name Ram Krishna to the present one of Swami Ramdev.
He shot into prominence when he started the Divya Yog Mandir Trust with the company of Achary Bal Krishna. In 2003, 'Aastha TV'began featuring him in its morning yoga slot. Within a few years, he had gathered a cult following.He was best known for his efforts to popularise yoga among increasingly health conscious Indians.
His flagship project is Patanjali Yog Peeth (a registered Trust which was inaugurated on August 6, 2006 by Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, then Vice President of India). The primary aim of this institution is to build India the world's largest centre for Ayurveda and Yoga with the facilities of treatment, research and training. At present the trust offers free treatment to those who cannot afford to pay and for the rest, it is provided at a reasonable cost.
