Introducing Special Guest Mr.B.D.Gawai, Ashish said that he Mr.Gawai was born in poor family in Buldhana district of Maharashtra. He took his primary education struggling with his life, as his family was employed at construction sites and these sites were kept moving from one place to other resulting in shifting their houses. He had done B.Com, M.com and LLB from Sidhharath college, Mumbai. Even he got enrolled for LLB, but could not complete it. Considering his family requirements he started his first part time employment while he was studying in 11th standard. He was account manager at Yashoda Industries. He had also done course of Intermedia cost accounting and shipping management. In 1978 he joined L&T and was there till 1982. He joined HPCL in 1982. While in HPCL he completed his Executive MBA.

In 2002 he established his own entrepreneurship firm of oil trading with local Arab partner and started his own business and made it 400 million Dollar company. But there were problems created by arab partner and he was forced to leave that JV and start independently his own firm of “Saurabh Energy” in 2008. Today he is chairman and managing director of this company.

Mr.B.D.Gawai always thought that Business is such a sector where Mulnivasi Bahujan are least represented. He thought of developing as many entrepreneurs from our community. He started dialogue with likeminded people in UAE and in 2008 established an organisation called Maitreya Developers Private Limited. Today there are 50 shareholders in this Company. Many resources can be created with the help of such organisations and they can help to meet the requirement of social organisations like BAMCEF. This group has also established one local company in UAE called as Maitreya International and is partner in one of newly formed Oil and Gas Offshore Construction Company called as DASOFF Petroleum Services. One of the shareholder Mr.Niranjan Waghmare has established his own firm of training 10th and 12th class fail students for retail shops and malls considering majority of our students are not able to continue their studies. Mr.Gawai is trying his best to create as many entrepreneurs from our society to strengthen our society brethren, which in turn will help social movements in India.
