Shri Jamnalal Bajaj was the man who participated in each of Gandhiji’s programmes of Independence Movement on the one hand and National Reconstruction on the other. But it was in the implementation of Gandhiji’s Constructive programmes, that Shri Jamnalal Bajaj played a stellar role. It was because of Jamnalalji’s pure devotion to Gandhian ideology that Gandhiji adopted him as his ‘fifth son’. Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation strives to serve the ideals to which Jamnalal Bajaj had dedicated his life and promotes the kind of Gandhian constructive activities in which he himself was deeply involved during his life-time. Jamnalal Bajaj Awards are thus a fitting tribute to Gandhiji and the Man he adopted as his ‘fifth son’ .
