After successfully passing out from Agriculture Scientists Recruitment Board (ASRB) as Asst. Professor-cum-Junior Scientist, he preferred to work in Vikas Bharati – Bishunpur instead of working in government offices which came his way.
Between the year 1993 and 2000 he did a lot of development work in Bishunpur – Jharkhand, leading so many campaigns regarding ‘Environmental Protection & Awareness Program.’ He did tree plantation in thousands of hectares of land by developing Nurseries in Villages. In this period Vikas Bharati got Indra Priyadarshini Vriksha Mitra Award from President of India.

In one way you can call him the pioneer of Gandhiji’s dream of Village Swarajya (Gram Swarajya), by campaigning Self Respect Awakening (Swabhiman Jagaran Abhiyan) and against Malnutrition problems, by creating Nutritional Garden Campaign. Nutritional Garden is his own initiative in which whole Nutritional Cycle (Poshan Chakra) – Bio-Geo-Chemical Cycle (Jal-Jamin-Jangal-Janwar & Jan) is maintained. It is the only and permanent solution to protect the Shrishti Chakra. By establishing one Nutritional Garden one can serve simultaneously – The Go Mata, The Ganga Mata & The Dharti Mata.
Presently he is the central guide (Margadarshak) for Self Respect Campaign (Swabhiman Jagaran Abhiyan) and Village Swarajya (Gram Swarajaya) and Central Incharge of Gramothan Yojana.
