Kerkar grew up in the company of Gandhians including Jnanpith Awardee and Padma BhushanRavindra Kelekar, Dada Dharmadhikari and Justice Chandrashekhar Dharmadhikari. So, he had a connection with Gandhi from his childhood days. He has passionately learnt about Mahatma Gandhi’s life and teachings. Kerkar used his artistic side and created works inspired by Mahatma Gandhi.  He has documented 70 sculptures of Gandhiacross India and converted them into Augmented Reality images, which can be viewed using the Gandhi AR App, which he developed.
