Ashok Kadvani

Ashok Kadvani is the creator of KarmYogi Mart Ltd. based at G.I.D.C. Metoda, Rajkot. The basic concept of this initiative is to synergize the energy of youth and like minded people under one roof. To initiate this movement, he started with the shopping mall, a mall with great discount on routine life needs. The earning from this mall gets utilized in the various programs of KarmYogi Parivar. This is the basic idea behind this.

On 15/08/2010, fifteen friends go to gether to give a shape to their such thinking and thus was created KarmYogi Mart Ltd. The reason behind opening up mart in Metoda G.I.D.C area is that, as there is a good population of lower middle class families who are working in different industries, discount in various routine things becomes very useful for them. The mall was started with two things in store: Potato and Onion. And as of today, there are around 1600 different items being sold the mall.

There is a very beautiful theory behind choosing the name KarmYogi only. Ashokbhai says “KarmYogi consists of two different words, i.e. Karm and Yogi. Karm is what we do and Yogi is the one who does it with devotion. So here, KarmYogi different from the routine employee. What we do, we should do it with devotion.”

Anyone who shares the vision of KarmYogi is join this initiative.

In personal life, Ashok Kadvani practises meditation and it has given the inspiration to start such an initiative. There is also a very interesting part of his persona. In this era of internet, his communication is also in form of hand-written letters. To whomever he meets, he sends a letter with the feelings that he felt during the meeting.
