He has written on themes relating to secularism, non-violence, postcolonialism, Mahabharata, Shakespeare Vivekananda, Tagore, Gandhi, and the city of Allahabad. He is the author of Gandhi and Tagore: Politics, Truth and Conscience (Routledge, 2016), and An Alternative Idea of India: Tagore and Vivekananda (Routledge: 2011). He has edited Learning Non-Violence (OUP: 2016), and co-edited, Exploring Agency in the Mahabharata: Ethical and Political Dimensions of Dharma (Routledge, forthcoming March 2018).
