Dhillon authored 'Titan in Andamans' dedicated to the life of his father Dr Dewan Singh Kalepani, a doctor who dedicated his life for the care of the prisoners at Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Kalepani was himself taken as a prisoner at the cellular jail there when the Japanese invaded during the World War II. Dhillon worked relentlessly to give shape to Diwan Sigh Kalepani Museum which came up at Siswan village, near the PGI, in 2000.

Dhillon joined as a lecturer at Government College, Tanda Urmur. He was the founder principal of Government College, Port Blair, where he went in 1968. He was also associated with the establishment of Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College, Gidderbaha. He retired as an education adviser of Punjab.
