Due to health troubles, he was relieved from his responsibilities of Vanavasi Kalyan three years ago. After that he was staying in Kumta, Uttar Kannada. He had moved to Belagavi for treatment recently.

Sri Kamath was behind the starting of Vanavasi Kalyana activities which focussed on working with the tribals in the state. He worked under the guidance of Late Sri Ajith Kumar.

Born in Sringeri, Karnataka on 10th April 1949, Sri Prakash Kamath won gold medal for his Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical engineering from the Regional Engineering College, Surathkal.

He had worked in various capacities for the development of Vanavasis including serving for 10 years in North Eastern part of Bharat. He has devoted his entire life to the society and the upliftment of Vanavasis.

He was stationed at Patna and had held the Akhila Bharatiya responsibility of Gram Vikas  a project of Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram which focussed on welfare of Vanavasis at village level. Sri Kamath was a firm believer of the fact that the task of upliftment of Vanavasis was to be done by karyakartas with whole heartedness and with a continuous, long term dedication.
