“Salswabhavi Uthaman – the deceptive title itself throws light into the characteristic of the protagonist and the plot in the novel. In Malayalam the name ‘Uthaman’ means an ideal man. This novel realistically exposes a false construct – Uthaman and the mutuality of such constructs and the societies. The novel reiterates that in a conducive environment evil flourishes like weeds in fertile soil. Uthaman is actually a silent villain, who exploited the weak and vulnerable ones and their emotions with knack of a wolf, but meets a tragic end, probably a deserving a fate.”

‘Kaleidoscope’ enhances the beauty of varied experiences one goes through life. It depicts the colours of life in short stories, emphasising on the silver lining in each story, inculcating gratitude in a subtle yet sincere way .The value and beauty of a kaleidoscope lies in its broken pieces which amalgamate to form a symmetry, symbolising that even though scarred and bruised, when put together as a whole one is perceived to be strong and the experiences that break ones well being are the ones that shape them into the being who they are today. These stories signify that change is the only constant and helps adapting become an easy task. When a kaleidoscope is shaken it loses its form but again settles down into yet another rare and fascinating pattern.

the thoughts, in paranoia of being caught, chasing no ends, running out of vortices — the tone of a definite crash, but the remnants of ideas coalesce to expel the delinquency — from transient humor to one exhibiting the true resilience, and emanating from it is the liberation of senses. here is no sentimentality, everything is elemental — an examination of the pursuit of independent spirit — acceptance of the intimate, and losing the burden of existence. eerie and tenacious, the melody that meets the need of malady strikes dream-like.

“The central theme of the poems contained in this book is humanity. They speak about the ills – superstitions, social stratification, etc. – inherited from the past. They manifest the gloom of the present-day world, the craving for peace, and sometimes call for total demolition to set the stage for the birth of a new world order – a warless, peaceful world. In the Indian context, the poems advocate logical, rational, and scientific approaches to issues. The poems stress upon equality, justice, and fraternity to bring about the desired changes.
Poems like ‘Night Falls’ and ‘Platform’ paint the picture of metro city life and the impact of urbanisation on rural and tribal areas. The poet’s fascination for ruins is reflected in some poems. It is more the mystique surrealism than the history of ruins that impresses him. The poems on nature are not the photographic narration of beauty. They contain harsh realities of the nature too, as in the poem, ‘Over Bhuj on Twelfth February’. ‘Silently She Burns’ and ‘Home Coming’ express the most delicate emotions of the human heart.”
