I have retired from my constitutional post of State Election Commissioner from 5thof July 2014. I was in active Government service for 42 long years.

Although I am busy with my writings, I feel the loss of speed. My life had a certain rhythm which is not there. Passing the time is not my problem. I want to take up something which fulfils me.

I am doing a series for DD. On Sakhi Sahyadri. Doing 4 episodes on Women. This programme is meant for women viewers.

There is a Marathi film titled Babanchi Shala. It is based on my story drawn from a real life experience. It is going to be released shortly. Shri. Vikram Gokhale, a legendry Marathi stage and cinema icon is directing a serial based on my novel, Ratra Vanavyachi. The shooting is complete.It is likely to be telecast from Divali time.

I am starting a new service. It is called Aarohi. It is a programme meant for students aspiring for competitive exam. We are a small team consisting of myself, a counsellor, an in service officer, a nutritionist and a couple of junior officers helping the students with interviews, conversational English, Personality development and actual one to one interaction with senior level officers from all services. This programme is meant for rural students who lack necessary skills for interviews. We are trying to tie up with a suitable media partner. We will reach out to students from all over Maharashtra by visiting the divisional Head quarters.
