Blood Rain and Other Stories contains fifteen stories that explore life situations embedded in contemporary reality marked by violence, selfishness, insensitivity, anxiety, corruption and revenge.

They are also alive to the presence of love and forgiveness, though rarely, in people who may have no reasons to possess them, in the eyes of the world. They vary in their tone from the serious, tragic and contemplative to the satiric and sardonic. While a number of them are portrayed on a realistic canvas, some of them verve into the fantastic and bizarre. The author has sought to set most of the stories in the ethos of Kerala to which he belongs.
