topic ‘pedagogy’ appears more elegant and beautiful with Professor’s characteristic in-depth treatment. Probably, the fact that the most of his teachers demonstrated and excelled themselves  in imparting knowledge acted as a very strong foundation to Professor.  He wrote some classic books on pedagogy, such as ‘Tamil Payitrum Murai’, ‘Ariviyal Payitrum Murai’ and ‘Kalvi Ulaviyal Kotpadukal’ which prove the depth and breadth of his pedagogical knowledge.  Dr S Thiruvenkatachari, Professor of Education in his Foreword to ‘Tamil Payitrum Murai’, observes that the book is Professor’s magnum opus. For nearly fifty years [the book was first published in 1957], this book is considered as a prime source-book in almost all training schools/colleges in Tamilnadu.   His another book, ‘Kalvi Ulaviyal Kotpadukal’ is considered as Bible by the  teaching community.

On specific request and permission from UNESCO, Professor has translated the UNESCO publication entitled "Source Book for Science Teaching" into Tamil as ' Aritiyal Payitrum Moola Mudhal Nool' and the book was published by Orient Longmans, Chennai, Tamilnadu.
