Kms., covering almost all rock formations in the country. Later he attended to various mineral/ore exploration projects acquiring specialization in explorations in Bauxite.

He examined all the bauxite occurrences in Maharashtra State, proving some of the deposits in the virgin areas of Saurashtra and kutch in the Gujarat State. His studies on the genesis of these deposits fetched him the Ph.D. degree, with a unique distinction of working without any recognized guide.

In 1965, he won another distinction of becoming Technical Secretary to the Deputy Director General, where he coordinated all the Mapping and Detail Mineral Exploration Project in the states of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, right upto the submission of the final reports on them. In 1972 he was promoted to the post of director, Engineering Geology Division, in which capacity he guided the Geo-technical exploration on several medium and major irrigation and hydel projects in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh states for about nine years. He has a rare experience in examining three major earthquake episodes and submit comprehensive reports. They were the earthquake of dibrugarh, in Assam in 1951, the Anjar earthquake of Gujarat in 1956 and the Koyna earthquake in 1965.

Dr. Shasrabudhe, in spite of a heavy schedule of field and office work, kept a live interest in academical research. He is the fellow of the Maharashtra Academy of Science and Life Member of several National and international Scientific Institutions. He is the author of about 40 publication/papers presented at different national and international seminars etc.

He had the privilege to participate in the International Geological Congress, Sydney (Australia) in 1976 as an official delegate. He was the member of the working group of IGCP 129 and led three field excursions for the three international conferences, namely, The International Geological Congress, India (1964), International Symposium on the “Deccan Traps and Related Volcanic Provinces in other parts of the world”, held in Bombay, 1979, and the IGCP 129 session at Trivendrum (1979).

He was the chief (Indian Side) during the two Indo-Japanese joint studies on the Deccan Traps in India. He also represented the department on its few special committees, such as Committee for reservation of areas for iron and Manganese deposits for Public Sector, Tariff Commissions, etc.

He has been a recognized guide in the Nagpur University and was responsible for successfully guiding a few of his officers for Ph.D. in the Department.

After retirement, he was nominated as a Panel Member for the “Dam Safety Review Panel” in the world Bank-aided projects in Madhya Pradesh for 8 years. He also worked as a consultant to the prestigious project of konkan Railway Corporation, in areas of 85 tunnels and about 100 high level heavy duty bridges, etc.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
