Born on 3rd September 1981 at midnight 12.00 am in Nagpur, Nishikant has grown up getting used to public life his parents had all along. Since his early years, he has been influenced by his parents’ devotion in working for people, which he has later inculcated in him. Simplicity is one of his natural characteristics. Working selflessly for all the Social and Educational institutions Nishi has spread the gamut of his activities beyond his parents’ legacy. After Doing his basic schooling from Centre Point School & Modern School, Nagpur, he studied in Dharampeth Science College for HSC and completed Graduation from G S College of Commerce Nagpur. To understand Nishi further, as he says,”Its better to know more about me as a friend, than reading about me as a stranger”.
The Kashikar family, in which Nishi was born is a mix of two cultures coming from the adjoining districts of Vidarbha – Wardha & Nagpur. Nishi’s father hails from wardha district & his mother is from Nagpur itself, where the family is now based out of.
Nishi’s father, Late Shri Kishor Narayan Kashikar was an Ex Member of the Legislative Council, Ex President, Nagpur City Congress and Ex Chairman of Development Corporation of Vidarbha Ltd. Nishi’s Mother Smt. Snehal Kishor Kashikar was the Ex President of Nag Feme Jaycees ( An all Ladies Jaycees Chapter). She is socially active in various organisations and winner of Internation Award for her contribution in Jaycees.
With such a heavy influence of his family’s commitment to public welfare and varied initiatives as his legacy, Nishi grew up with an inclination for working towards development and welfare of people.
In Nishi’s words, “Apart from social, personal & professional achievement MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT IS MY WORLD OF FRIENDS which i have gained from my so far life”. It goes to say how seriously Nishi values his personal relations more importantly over and above the milestones he’s crossed in his life!
