Open the Door of Mercy
The Book is divided into three parts consisting of ten chapters. It deals with the celebration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, and at the same time brings forth the significant insights of the Apostolic Letters: “Face of Mercy” and “Rich in Mercy.” The terminological analysis of the term “Mercy” gives us a factual understanding of the concept.

Mysticism in Tagore's GitanjalI
Mysticism in Tagore's Gitanjali is a masterly study of the mystical elements in Gitanjali in the context of Eastern and Western mystical concepts. It illustrates how Tagore attains to a direct experience of God in and through nature, joy, sorrow and art, particularly poetry. The presentation of Tagore's monistic-dualistic conception of God is a singular speciality of the book. This doctoral thesis has been highly commended by the members of the doctoral committee as one of the best of its kind. A superb literary piece, it is also so compelling and urgent in modern times

The Wise Man from India
The Play, based on the Bible examines the possibility of a person from India being among the three wise men – the Magi – who visited Jesus soon after his birth. It also tries to make an interpretation on the visit of Saint Thomas to India. The story also gives a brief perspective view of the historical, geographical and social background of the period, in the lands through which the principal character passes. The central message of his journey is that the path of every missionary is fraught with obstacles and distractions. The play also presents the story of two mothers who lost their sons. One tries to reach out to the other in a unique way. The play would help Indians of other religions to better understand Christianity and its origins in India. Also–through the medium of an entertaining story – Christian readers in other parts of the world would come to know about the uniqueness of Indian Christians
