He has worked in medicine for twenty years. He was the person behind establishing SDMH. He started a nursing home with 11 beds and today, it is 400 bed hospital. Destiny made him leave this profession in 1976. There are not many people in India who are doctors and who have ventured in gems trade. He joined Gemstone business in 1975 at the age of 40. It was sheer destiny that brought him into this business. Then, by 2005, he retired.

After retirement he pursued his creative ideas. Stamp collection is his hobby; he developed this hobby from 1947 and it continues till today. He developed a website of stamps, a web museum of gems and jewellery stamps which houses 15000 individual and other varieties of stamps collected from across the world from all countries which is available freely on Google.

He always had in mind a creative idea and to do something which is not in routine. He did a lot of research for 10 years & published two books. He created a gem stone temple in NY which is unique in world. This is one of the biggest structure carved out of gem stone in the world. It started in 2001; It was established and donated to public in the year 2010

He is a Philanthropist who believes that a person should retire at the age of 70 and spend few years in social and other welfare activities. So that at the end of his life, he proves as a useful person to the society and not only to the business. He has donated for religious causes, education, hospital, establishing hospital was a major contribution. He has donated an outdoor building to Durlabhji hospital & the MBA building to Subodh College.

He further went ahead with his dream of museum, funds were not a limitation. In 2015, he decided to get involved with the making of a museum in Jaipur in gem and jewellery; he coordinated with jewellers in Jaipur and New York. By September 2017, the museum had taken shape and was opened to public. And as per his passionate nature, he is now working on his new creation, a gemstone temple in India…
