Nitinbhai is the founder of the Young Indian Vegetarian Society and for the past 39 years has hosted the Annual Christmas Lunch, a totally vegetarian affair, to promote friendship between communities living in Croydon.
He is an active campaigner for promotion of Vegetarianism and Veganism through regular appearances at various national events as well as articles in the national press.

He received an M.B.E., in 1999, for his services to the community. He has also received the Ahimsa Award from the Institute of Jainology and The Glory of India Abroad Award from the India International Friendship Society.

Nitinbhai can be described as a “lone warrior” in his quest to actively promote Vegetarianism and Veganism because his enthusiasm and energy is boundless even after more than 40 years of active campaigning.
