Wardha is the land of prominent personalities- Gandhi, Vinova and Jamnalalji Bajaj. Once, Gandhiji has said about Jamnalalji- “Jamnalalji is the man of the people– a fisher of men who had the knack of gathering people around him and inspiring them with his idealism? Very active during India’s freedom struggle, Jamnalalji was a philanthropist who delighted in donating most of his wealth for worthy causes.
From the beginning, Jamnalalji was always more involved in social and philanthropic activities rather than business. Jamnalalji made Wardha the centre for Gandhiji’s economic and social development programmes.
