In the teens of his life after spending only a few years in the schools, he left for Himalayas to spend his time in deep study of Religion and Mystic and Spiritual Yogic practices.

The Degree of Doctor of Natural Science was awarded by the same university in the year 1936. At the beginning of World War 2, He left Germany and reached England where he joined the University of Liverpool to under take researches in Nuclear Physics in the Sir James Chadwick Laboratory of Nuclear Physics. After doing a few years of work there, he was awarded the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy by the University of Liverpool for doing research in the Spectroscopy of Beta-Radiations and for developing a Beta-ray Spectrograph. During that period a book on High Vacuaa was written which was afterwards published by D-Van Nostrand Co., New York, U.S.A. After spending 5 years in England he left for U.S.A. Where he carried on extensive work on Spectroscopy of Beta-radiations. Then he returned to India in the year 1947 December and joined the National Physical Laboratory of India., Delhi. as the Assistant Director-In-Charge of Electricity and Electronics Divisions. Then in the year 1954 he joined the Andhra University where he was Head of the Department of Nuclear Physics. A number of papers have been published from 1954 onwards. His work was being carried on various projects and some publications were also given out. During this period a new work entitled " The Elements of Nuclear Physics" has been written and it was being published by the Andhra University. The work was expected to come out as a Text-Book before the end of December 1961.
