The author’s style is one in which he feels that brevity is of the essence.
In his work, the author wrestles with the aspects of the social milieu, life, love, sex, death, religion, realisation of self and God, and other serious issues.
The author touches upon the metaphysical side of all the above-mentioned issues whenever he deals with them in his work.
He is a serious writer, who also has a very subtle sarcastic wit about him.
Even though he is still young, many eminent persons including the late Prof. U. R. Ananthamurthy have appreciated him"
