A visionary that he was, he dreamt of lighting candles in the hearts of others and despite all pressures that he should open a college, if at all he should, at Jaisalmer, he made up hismind to open a college at the place which gave him food to eat, streets to play, friends to love and a roof to shelter. With his hard earned money he willingly made generous donation towards the purchase of 8.8 acres of land to open a learning centre of higher education in the year 1961. And thus a dream got fulfilled and under the Chairmanship of Hon'ble Bar. S.K. Wankhede, the then Finance Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra and working president K.K. Chandak and with goodwill and co-operation of Ex-Secretary Shree G.M. Deshmukh, Ex-Commissioner Shri Dinkarrao Deshmukh and Ex-treasurer Shri Srikishandasji Nabira.
