But his spirit of entrepreneurship made him give up teaching and lay down the foundation of the Kagal Education Society.

As an active politician, he assumed the post of President at Taluka Congress Committee and then became the President of Kagal Municipal Council.  A few of his decisions during the small tenure as president served as a landmark in the all round development of the town of Kagal. His yearning for education made him quit active politics and devotes himself fully to the cause of education.  He undertook different educational endeavors with the commitment to provide education to students from the rural area of the Kagal.  Particularly he inclined to impart job oriented courses to students to earn their livelihood for self, reliance.  Consequently, he established socio-agricultural and educational institutions of national importance & repute.

However, it is noteworthy that he struggled hard to establish the institutions devoid of any substantial financial support from outside.  His struggle is an indication of his determined spirit and commitment to the cause of socio-economic and educational advancement of the society.

His personal life was also an ideal example of ‘simple living’ in personal life.  He was a farmer and agriculturist by instinct and consequently, he relentlessly made experiments in agriculture.
