Second generation literate, born in a peasant family in Tuljapur block. The school education up to matriculation was completed in 1978 from a vernacular school in Tuljapur. Eighties, was a relatively better period for the agriculture sector; this was a reason for deciding the future education in the field of Agriculture. During the college days actively affiliated with the Peasant Movement i.e. Shethkari Sanghatana, after completing Masters in Agriculture engaged in family farming, joined TISS in 1989 as Horticulturist. The economic- ecological and sociopolitical challenges before the agriculture sector were most predominant after nineties, the situations was worst particularly in the drought prone area. TISS provided a platform and opportunity in exploring alternatives to these challenges through innovative projects with the active partnership of local communities.
