Known primarily for his achievements as a business leader, Mr. Pradip Burman is just as much an entrepreneur as he is a philanthropist, as much a business tycoon as a conservationist. The seasoned veteran is also an Ayurveda follower, as seen in his choices of products for medication, personal care and nourishment.
Known primarily for his achievements as a business leader, Mr. Pradip Burman is just as much an entrepreneur as he is a philanthropist, as much a business tycoon as a conservationist. The seasoned veteran is also an ayurveda follower, as seen in his choices of products for medication, personal care and nourishment.
Pradip Burman is truly a one of a kind leader. While successfully heading a business for years, he has somehow always gone beyond the call of duty to work towards the society with several initiatives and social organisations, such as Sundesh, Ayurvet and Mobius Foundation.
For the uninitiated, he might appear to be just another business magnate – one who only cares about filling his coffers. A closer look at his life’s work, however, will paint a different picture. His zeal and drive to make a difference is exemplary. He cares deeply about the environment and the people inhabiting it, toils day and night to promote sustainable living and education for all, and spearheads campaigns to spread awareness about climate change, recycling and family planning, to name a few.
Some of his social initiatives are discussed as under:
Sundesh is a sustainable development society, continuously working for the upliftment and welfare of rural areas and communities in India. The society has multiple centres in India, providing informal education to school dropouts and others who’ve never been to school. This education is provided to both kids and adults. Post this stage, these kids and adults are not only encouraged to get formal education, but also linked to formal schools for guidance.
Ayurvet Limited was established by Mr. Pradip Burman to provide ayurvedic treatment to animals in need, using only 100% natural and safe herbal products. The company’s portfolio includes herbal healthcare and nutritional products for a wide range of animal species.
Mobius Foundation is an NGO working towards environmental sustainability, population stabilization, inclusive education and ecological conservation. Since its inception, it has undertaken many programmes to further its cause.
- Project Aakar is an initiative to promote population stabilization. It educates people on the importance of reproductive health, family planning and contraceptives.
- Sanjeevani Project is an initiative to increase green cover, under which several tree plantation drives are to be organised.
- Future projects under Mobius foundation are Gyan Anant Vidyalaya, World Environment School – Coorg and International Conference on Sustainability Education (ICSE) 2019.
The man behind it all, Mr. Pradip Burman is not blind-sighted by the promise of change. He believes that, while we as a people have indeed made a promising start, we still have miles to go before we can hang our boots and celebrate.
