Apart from his scientific career, he was also a profound thought leader, visionary educationist and a staunch follower of Gandhian philosophy in post-independence India, specifically in his domicile state Gujarat. He was vice chancellor of Gujarat University and Gandhi Vidyapith.

Vaidya Metric:

Einstein’s theory of gravity is described by a set of complicated equations which use the mathematics of Riemannian geometry. It is very quite complex to implore what describe a physically interesting and practically realizable solution. In 1942, Professor Vaidya took up on this mission, and accomplished pioneering work which led to conception of such a solution. The result was The Vaidya Metric.
