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.

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.
