He established postgraduate science education in Nepal when he was the vice chancellor of Tribhuwan University.

He was successful to shift the venue of SLC examination from Patna in British India to Kathmandu so that the examinees would not need to travel to India. Further he also made it possible for examinees to appear in Nepali medium.

Sardar Late Pandey was a devoted adherent of the Gita and the Bed and a very spiritual man. Dr. Lohani highlighted the spiritual life of Sardar Pandey.

Even 123 years later, people and well-wishers continue to remember the efforts and contributions of the late Rudra Raj Pandey, who is one of the few to have such a devoted family.

Sardar late Pandey was a self-made commoner from a far-off hamlet who was born in Kathmandu. Dr. Pandey, who holds an MA from Allahabad” University, and has dedicated his life to advancing Nepali literature and education.

According to what is said, people pay for what they do and much more so for what they have enabled to happen via their simple choice of lifestyle. People receive lives based on their Karmas from previous lifetimes, claims the Bhagavad Gita. So what did I do in the past to make my life so wretched and pointless? Why didn't I have a wealthy family that would have supported me or lived in a better nation?
