Bewajah Ke Log

The Team


(he/him) |

Masto is the founder of Bewajah, a dream which he shaped from his over ten years of experience in the field of arts and theatre. Starting his journey quite conventionally as an engineer he ventured into the field of theatre and arts. There he discovered his passion in writing and worked on many scripts, plays, and lyrics. Experiencing the impact of arts on his life, Masto gravitated towards the idea of using arts to build meaningful experiences for young people. Deeply influenced by Gandhi’s vision of self-reliant and active youth, he aimed to build an inclusive, democratic space through different programs at Bewajah. Following his passion for storytelling, he is also a visiting faculty for Storytelling at NIFT, Raebareli. He also performs storytelling for adolescents on different subjects.
