Manasi forges her own path, while taking pride in the 150-year Kirloskar family legacy and embracing the brand’s values as the fifth generation Kirloskar.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in USA and post that, underwent comprehensive training for three years at Toyota Kirloskar Motor, encompassing technical processes, manufacturing practices, the Japanese work culture, industry-leading quality management systems, and business functions.
Manasi has always been committed to community service since a very young age. She started teaching at schools for the lesser privileged. Being an artist, she taught them art & craft to bring colour to their lives, and bring out their creative instincts.
Compelled by her own experiences as a student and a student volunteer teacher in government schools, Manasi has realised her dream of establishing a non-profit foundation to bring a revolutionary change in India’s education system. Through Caring With Colour she encourages learning in the classroom through arts and activities, focused on exploration and innovation, enabling solutions for real-world issues.
