KESHAV PATWARDHAN’S fascinating life journey began in a small town called Nipani, in a traditional Brahmin family. As the son of a freedom fighter, despite being home taught until high school, his brilliance won him admission to Elphinstone College, Bombay, and scholarships to Benares Hindu university and an advanced Industrial Training in Germany in 1953, where he met his wife. His four children live in Germany, US and Singapore, while he now lives in Pune.
He started his career as a ceramic engineer, and went on to be a CEO, startup founder, director, consultant, advisor, and one of India’s foremost ceramic experts.
