‘Bapu Bungalow’ is Nashik’s key landmark – Sanjay Khanzode, Founder, Impressions, shares its significance

14 December 2020: In 1977, I passed from Mumbai University with an Economics degree. Considering my love for technical subjects I decided to go into the printing business. I had no family background of printing business and no technical experience. To get more ideas about printing I joined a printing technology part time course in J. J. School of Arts, Fort, Mumbai. Due to the good weather, abundant water supply in Nashik, its nearness to Mumbai and industrial progress of the 1980’s, I decided to settle there and start business.

In 1978, I brought 6000 sq. ft. land near the highway. Construction of the bungalow was completed in 1981 and we went to stay there. In those days, there was nothing nearby except bare land. My father retired and as per his wishes, the bungalow was named ‘Bapu’ after my grandfather. In 1982, I started my printing business in the name of Impression. I used to visit Ambad, Satpur industrial estates to collect the printing orders. In 1987, my father started the ‘Bapu Bungalow’ scholarship for Nashik city SSC students, which continued for 10 years until he passed away.

Due to the lack of space for business, in 2010 I demolished the original structure and constructed a 3-storey complex in its place. During this time, State Bank of India was planning to start a branch in India Nagar. They were hesitant initially, but later on when I offered them a 3,000 sq. ft. pillarless hall, they agreed and the SBI Indira Nagar Branch started in December 2010. Due to this, Bapu bungalow not only became a landmark, but the surrounding area of 60 bungalows also started to be known as the ‘Bapu bungalow’ area.

Some years ago, HDFC started a branch behind our bungalow. They also named it the ‘Bapu bungalow’ branch. In 2013, I started a banquet hall on the second and third floors. Naturally, I gave it the name Bapu Bungalow Mangal Karyalay. I was in the printing business from 1982 to 2015 and employed 40 to 50 employees. We have won 3 national, 1 international, and 1 district level award for our quality in printing. To honor our printing service, Screen Print India magazine did a 4 page article on us in 2002.
