Some of his novels tended to be tracts on social liberty. His awareness of the modern human situations and his deep sense of the need for social change, deserve special mention. His novel Ayalkar which won the Akademi award, gives a masterly social analysis and portrays a number of noteworthy characters. He was the President of the Kerala Sahitya Akademi for some time.
