Rebelling against caste discrimination at an early age at a convent school and dropping himself out, he diverted his youthful energies into the formation of "Yuvak Mandal" in 1968 at Poinsur for providing civic necessities to the Slums like drinking water, providing electricity, Balwadis and other needs. His leadership skills were rewarded with his first electoral entry into politics in 1992 as a municipal councilor. Quickly building up, he was rewarded with the Best Corporator award and above all being the first deputy mayor in the only "Mayor in Council" of the city of Mumbai.
