Deval was a school student in Belgaum where Annasaheb Kirloskar was a teacher. Later, on, in the Marathi stage also they worked as a teacher and disciple. They were associated with theatre in the roles of actor, playwright and drama-teacher (Taleem master). Deval acted in ‘Shakuntal’ as Goutami and Othello in ‘Othello’. Deval’s contribution is greater as a writer of plays such as ‘Durga’, ‘Phalgunrao’, ‘Samshay Kallol’, ‘Mruchhakatik’, ‘Shapsambhram’, ‘Vikramaorvashiya’, ‘Zunzarrao’, and ‘Sharda’. His social plays too enjoyed good fame. It is enough to say that Deval trained a disciple who is well-known as Ganpatrao Bodas.
