He was always on a move so as to protect himself from the exploitation of landlords and businessmen.
In October of 1940, a patwari came harassing the Gonds for taxes and threatened them with his men. During the struggle, Patwari died by the hands of Komaram Bheem. He ran away to Chandapur and their printing press owner, Vitoba took him in. There he learned English, Hindi and Urdu.
