Apart from his research to obtain PhD degree from Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupathi, Andhra Pradesh, Professor did some serious research on his own. As a part of PhD research, he visited 102 Vaishnav Shrines with his family members. Also, he did most comprehensive research on Vaishnavism when he was assigned the research project by Tamil University, Tanjore.  These books stand as an exhilarating evidence for Professor's dedicated and devoted approach to research. In fact, when the Department of Tamil, Sri Venkateswara University published a book entitled, "Collected Papers" (comprising all research articles in English presented by Professor in various All India Conferences/Seminars), on Professor's wish, the book was dedicated to 'all research guides' - such was his affinity to research fraternity.
