Tamil The Taming of Women by P. She has written novels around Dalit and feminist themes.

The central concern of the novel is the relation between man and the earth he cultivates. Already Uroob had developed the concept of an extensive canvas in Sundarikalum Sundaranmarum. The grand narrative found its rightful place in Malayalam fiction during the period after independence. Kesava Dev, in Ayalkar Neighbours , used the large-framed novel to recount the intricate relationships between different castes and communities.

The Nairs , Ezhavas and Christians figure dominantly in the complex and involved story of the people who live in any Kerala village as neighbours. These novelists were holding a mirror up to life in all its diversities, without identifying individual heroes and heroines or villains.
