Swami is not someone owns immense wealth, yet he took this initiative because of his positivity surrounding education.

The land that he donated is now used for the High school which accommodates at least 400 children. Rajkishore cannot use his legs but this has not let down his spirits who sells vermillion, bindi and other needful to survive.

Though Rajkishore has two sons, both of them are differently abled and cannot help him in earn for the family. But their wives help as much as possible. Dharampur did not have school for their children and when it was proposed to build a school, people refused to give away their lands.
