Ajit Dayal || Founder
Ajit DayalNSPA has evolved out of the vision of our founder Ajit Dayal, best known as the founder of Equitymaster, Personal FN and Quantum Mutual Fund. Recalling his childhood days of watching street performers in Mumbai city and noting how street performers continue to brighten the lives of residents of cities like London and Paris, Ajit wished to "rekindle an atmosphere of street performances in urban India (starting with Mumbai) that aims to bring some joy to the lives of millions as they go about their daily commute".

- Amit Si

I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.
- Satish Kumar

Congratulations!! Great start NSPA!!!
- Ritika Afb

It was a wonderful experience for me watching Rahul Pais sing and play music. Thanks for a wonderful effort by NSPA in putting up performances. I have never seen something like this at churchgate station.

Pratyul Joshi, All the best. You have a promising career ahead. As for the initiative, thumbs up. Suggestion: You can conduct street plays on general awareness. Am sure people will watch just like this!
- Radhika Shetty

It's something new. Want you to come to Vasai.
- Harsh Shah

Love it !! Great finding some fresh music in the city. Maybe have it in a more open spot in the station so even more people can enjoy it 
