On 18th December 1981 while studying Degree Final Year, he opined ‘ask not what the village did for you, but what you did for the village’ by seeing the problems faced by the poor people and established the AMBEDKAR YUVAJANA SANGHAM. The funds required were mobilized from his own pocket money savings, and also from small works done for money by him and his friends. The funds were handled in utmost transparency. To involve more people, he stepped out of the shoes of his position in the organisation and inspired many others to join. Under this banner, he:
● strived to increase education by establishing library, honoring meritorious students and giving free tuitions.
● helped to distribute government waste lands to around 100 poor families so that they earn more income and their children could continue to study
● helped conduct medical camps for the health of the poor families
The organisation is currently being run by students and an advisory role is taken up by him.
He joined as a Group-C central government employee. Wherever posted, he inspired his colleagues to contribute in terms of money and time to visit the villages apart from his native village. He conducted extra-curricular competitions, and also awarded meritorious students. He did all these during his leisure hours. Due to the transparency in conducting the activities, many people were attracted towards the activities. After conducting such activities in many villages, some of the employees identified that education is the only weapon for development of the nation. They further suggested these activities should be in organised manner. The same was discussed with his father and his father also appreciated the charity work and promised to give back his agricultural income for carrying out the activities.
KKM EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY: As his father agreed to donate agricultural income and his house for the development of education, an organisation was established in the memory of his mother, who died at the age of 5 years. Thus he established KATIKALA KANTHAMMA MEMORIAL EDUCATIONAL AND HEALTH CARE SOCIETY, which was named in remembrance of his then late mother. Through KKM Society, he surveyed selected 35 villages, where he identified that the dropout rate was high. The main causes for high dropout rate was being lack of books, guidance and poverty.
Education: To increase the education level in the 35 villages, he demolished his family house and established a public library, employed a tutor and arranged power in his village so as to give free tuitions to poor students, distributed books and awarded meritorious students.
De-Alcoholism: To encourage de-alcoholism, awareness camps were conducted and those parents who ceased bad habits such as drinking were felicitated before the general public. Many families were rescued from the adverse effects of De-Alcoholism
Honoring Hard Working people: To encourage hard working poor people who were landless and acquired land, they were felicitated and were stood up as exemplary citizens.
Honoring exemplary Parents:- Those parents who encouraged their children to study despite being in poverty were honored before the general public.

SNEHA CLUB: Learning from the success of the KKM Society, where a few persons with a similar mindset made such a considerable change, a thought arose of what may perspire out of many people of the same mindset. With this thought, Sneha Club was established in the year 2001 as a charitable organisation functioning on the basis of principles taught by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar which are:
● “Those who are enjoying the constitutional privileges, come forward and take the responsibility to give a helping hand to our needy brethren” and
● “With great difficulty, I have brought this caravan where it is seen today. Let the caravan march on despite the hurdles that may come in its way. If my lieutenants are not able to take the caravan ahead, they should leave it there. But in no circumstances should they allow it to go back” Also, a general principle of ‘not to criticize anyone’ for the activities carried out by executive members is made effective. Instead of criticizing an executive member, that person is encouraged to replace the executive member for the sake of better working.
With these principles, the Sneha Club has forged on and built up a pan state presence. With around 100 to 200 active members in each district of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Sneha Club is a distinguished organisation now.
Many different types of activities are taken up by the Sneha Club patrons such as visiting Social/Tribal Welfare Hostels to provide pens, books, bedsheets, etc., which are lacking in the hostels, books distribution, medical camps, issuing medical cards for free treatment, training programmes, adopting villages to provide educational support, conducting coaching classes to admit into higher education, conducting pratibha awards given to 2 best students from all Social welfare and Tribal welfare Hostels in each district in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. CONCLUSION: From the last 33 years in service, several students were benefited in the form of books, coaching, training, etc.. Several medical camps were conducted through which many lives were saved. Conducted coaching classes through which many students got admitted into higher education. Apart from charitable activities, network was created in all districts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and inspired them for charitable activities without criticizing caste and religion permanently.Around 42 activities are carried out successfully by these like-minded employees every month.
