The Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation was set up by Mr. Indoo Shivdasani, a Cambridge educated, highly successful businessman who firmly believed that the young should study abroad to fully develop their capacity. Indoo Shivdasani & his wife, Lakshmi, thus set up the “Inlaks” Shivdasani foundation that has been sending young Indians to study abroad since 1976.
