Birad Rajaram Yajnik is a speaker, author and curator. His name is synonymous with fine print production and his books have been translated in nine international languages. In 2012, when invited to speak to the delegation at Harvard Model UN India, he delivered an interactive talk on Mahatma Gandhi in the 21st Century and then created the ‘Ahimsa Harley’ as a catalyst for change. The bike is now a mascot for Peace around the world.

In his interactive talk at HMUN India 2013, he spoke to the delegates about “Tea, Salt & Whites only” – where he linked the Boston Tea Party, The Salt Satyagraha and The March on Washington to show the power and ability to cause change, change that created Leaders of Humanity and not just nations.

Interactive Installations by him are now present in three continents. The KING Gandhi Wall at Howard University in Washington DC, The Mandela Gandhi Digital Exhibition at Constitution Hill and The Mandela Gandhi wall at the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Johannesburg as well as the largest engagement wall in the world on Mahatma Gandhi at the Peace Truth Ahimsa Museum in Hyderabad – which he curates.

At Harvard Model UN 2014, he spoke to the leaders of tomorrow on the concept of Global Citizenship and introduced them to an idea – ‘The World Citizen Passport’, a tool that he believes can engage the entire population of the world to turn them into citizens of the world, hence doing away with the concept of boundaries and borders and feelings of communal territorialism. He issued 1300 of these passports at HMUN 2014 in a bid to kick start this process as an experiment.
