Father of two, and grandfather of four, Ramaiya, recently completed his research on the ‘Critical study of Niti Manjari by Dwivedi,’ under Gauri Mavlikar of Mumbai University to earn his PhD.

Explaining his love for Sanskrit, Ramaiya recently told TOI:



“Our culture has developed from this ancient language. All the virtues and vices of mankind are ingrained in this language, and unless you study and know it you wouldn’t know your culture. As I was busy earning for my family, I didn’t get a chance to do what I loved and so after retirement from work I concentrated on this goal.”

Besides earning a mechanical engineering degree, Ramaiya also got a law degree in 1971, thirteen years after he had become an engineer.
