His fiction was an outcome of his conviction that for it to impact readers, it should be the soulful rendering of characters rooted in their native soil but not the hotchpotch of local and foreign caricatures sketched on a hybrid canvas.

His non-fiction works are Puppets of Faith: Theory of communal strife, Bhagvad-Gita: Treatise of Self-help (sans 110 interpolations in verses with contemporary idiom) and Sundara Kănda: Hanuman’s Odyssey, also in verse, all available as free e-books in umpteen sites including Project Gutenberg Self-publishing Press and obooko,com

Besides articles on general management (The Hindu), materials management (Purchase) general insurance (The Insurance Times) and literary/social subjects (Triveni,) he contributed ‘Addendum to Evolution: Origins of the World by Eastern Speculative Philosophy’ to The Examined Life On-Line Philosophy Journal, Vol. 05 Issue 18.
