Ramchand Kewalramani founded Sitaram Prakash Higher Secondary School, initially at Karachi (Sind) in 1938 (after retirement from Post & Telegraph Dept.)
After partition, he was one of the very few educationists, who restarted the school in Mumbai in the same name, in Nov. 1947, just to meet the dire need of displaced Sindhi students.
Initially the school started at the rented premises of Robert Norway High School at Grant Road, but in a year or so the School was shifted to its own premises in Wadala, Mumbai.
The school under the able leadership of Ramchand, took rapid strides and today it is one of the best schools in Mumbai with almost 100% results in Higher Secondary examinations. Ramchand was an able administrator and strict disciplinarian. His pension money (after retirement from Post & Telegraph Deptt.) was earmarked for upliftment of poor & needy.
