A budding, young, social entrepreneur, Balwant holds Bachelors in Mass Media (BMM) from University of Mumbai and Masters in Advertising and Marketing Management (MBA) from NIBM. Balwant is a native of Wardha, born and raised in Gandhian atmosphere.
He was fortunate to get a chance to understand the Gandhian ideology of Swaraj and Swavalamban since early childhood. He has been closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi’s Ashram in Sewagram and Vinoba Bhave’s Ashram in Pawnar and several other social organizations in Wardha.
