He has done an exhaustive work on the Bhagavad Gita titled “Gitadarsanam” which is very popular in Malayalam language. The present book “Bhagavad Gita: Modern Reading” critically approaches yoga sastra in the light of modern science and, at the same time evaluates modern science vis-à-vis yoga sastra.
His research on problems fundamental to astrophysics gave rise to a monograph titled "Unity of Space-Matter Manifestations", published as early as in January 1988. "Stuff and Style of the Universe", a book which is a popular science elaboration of the monograph, was published Nov. 2002 by Hi-Tech Books. The first Scientist-President of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, expressed appreciation of the work done, and the model attracted world attention. An article based on the book was also published in 'Science India' (ISSN 0972-8287) in two issues, which came out on September 2012 and October 2012 (Vol. 15 No. 9 and Vol. 15 No. 10 respectively). Continued researches resulted in the book "The Secret Behind the Universe", published July 2016, in which the original ideas were further refined and updated. A condensed version of the physics section of this book was published in January 2017 as an article titled "Avyakta: The Fabric of Space" in the Prespacetime Journal Vol 7 Issue 16 (Prespacetime Journal (ISSN: 2153-8301), QuantumDream Inc., P.O. Box 267, Stony Brook, NY 11790-0267, USA; is a physics journal which focuses on the origin, nature and mechanism of spacetime and its possible connection to a prespacetime; and models and experimental results on elemental particles, fundamental forces including gravity and related topics.)
