Just after submitting my thesis for the doctorate degree I got appointed at the University of Delhi to work as Assistant Director (Hindi), at the Directorate of Correspondence Courses in January 1965. After six months in July 1965 I joint PGDAV College (University of Delhi) as a lecturer in the Department of Hindi. Besides teaching Hindi I was given classes to teach Principles of Indian Textual Criticism to Pre ­Phd. students, the class which was later named as M.Litt and M.Phil. course .

In 1966, Department of Linguistics, University of Delhi started M.A. and M.Litt Courses in Linguistics under the guidance of eminent Indian Linguist Professor P.B.Pandit. I took admission in the M.Litt.( Research Degree Course ) in Linguistics in the Department of Linguistics. It was a time when I was teaching Principles of Indian Textual Criticism to M.Litt Hindi students in the Department of Hindi and doing M.Litt in Linguistics in the Department of Linguistics , University of Delhi. Here I had the good luck to be the student of renowned Indian linguists such as Professor P.B.
