Padmabhushan Justice Dr. Chadnrashekhar Dharmadhikari
At a time when Gandhiji is thought to be inconsequential to the present global situation by a section of opinion makers, the iconic presence of the likes of Dr. Darmadhikari helps in building a counter opinion that it is only by following Gandhiji’s prophesies that a better, sustainable and equitable world can be rebuilt.
Gandhiji’s legacy is without age. Such traditions don’t become irrelevant with the passage of time. Gandhiji is as dead as Buddha or Mahavir. Patriarchs like Dr. Dharmadhikari add conviction to this notion.
Padmashree Dr. Bhavarlal H. Jain
Born to farmer parents of meagre means, Bhau’s persona and character are innately Indian. His ‘Indianness’ is nurtured and enriched by Gandhian value system, which dwells at its core. More importantly, Bhau is a practising Gandhian; his following of Gandhian ideals resonate more in his activities than his expressions.
Gandhi Research Foundation is his latest, and perhaps his most cherished philanthropic initiative in the Gandhian mould. He wants to ‘preserve for posterity’ Gandhian ideals through this Foundation. Bhau means business; he has built the Foundation to last at least 300 years.

corporate image and relationships building, events management, personnel and HR, communication, PR, art and publicity. Additionally, Ashok Bhau also serves as Commercial Chief of the company’s food processing division.
Ashok Bhau’s dedicated and selfless services to the Foundation will add zeal and vigour in all its endeavours. The Foundation will also depend on his vision for strategy formation and execution of present and future initiatives.
Shri Devendra R. Mehta
It would not be inappropriate to say that Shri Mehta is a financial wizard. He, however, is also a dedicated philanthropist who initiated several farsighted, ambitious activities. His single largest contribution to the society is the establishment of Bhagvan Mahavir Viklang Sahayta Samiti. It is one of the world’s leading limb-rehabilitation centres, renowned for the ’Jaipur Foot’ technology. It provides artificial limbs that are so efficient that they restore near-normalcy in all daily activities of affected people, thus helping them live a life of dignity and self-reliance.
His trusteeship of the Foundation is valued by one and all. The institute is bound to draw deeply from his wide circle of internationally renowned scholars and thinkers, his wide-ranging experience of over five decades, and his impeccable leadership trait.
