Bridge Builder

Manav A. Lalwani graduated from Princeton University in 2009, where he majored in Politics, with certificates in Political Economy, East Asian and South Asian Studies. While in college, he engaged in interfaith dialogue through the Religious Life Council, and helped establish the University's Hindu Life Program, the first such program in America dedicated to raising awareness about the ideals of sanatana dharma while enabling spiritual discovery among students identifying as Hindu.

Manav pursued his Masters in International Strategy & Economics at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, UK, where he researched public-private partnerships to build up India's educational infrastructure. He currently serves as the Vice President of Product Development at American Spraytech, a contract manufacturer of personal care and cosmetic spray products based in New Jersey.

Manav is a devotee of Dada J. P. Vaswani, the 96 year-young spiritual head of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission based in Pune, India, and is involved with the Mission's youth wing - the Bridge Builders. He enjoys reading, traveling broadly, practicing yoga, and engaging in seva, or service of the underprivileged.
