    In Calcutta with the efforts of Sri Thakur Santan Dharm Vidyalaya and Saswat Khetriya Vidyalaya were established and he held the post of Headmaster of both the institutions in Calcutta. Mr. Thakur was appointed as translator of Government of Bengal. Thereafter the vice Chancellor of Calcutta University and Hon'ble Justice of Calcutta High Court Sri Ashutosh Mukherjee appointed him as the member of council of Post Graduate in Calcutta University and became the professor of Calcutta University in Hindi Subject.
