Beneath the clouds and coconut leaves, tells the story of a political extremist, Naxalite, who returns from jail after nine years of imprisonment as result of the political government's decision to give amnesty to the political convicts. Arjuan, the hero, had become an extremist due to his strong compassion towards the downtrodden and exploited in the society and inspired by the early lessons, from the Hindu Epic Bhagavadgita and other religious books, he learned from his parents. He felt the village he had left, changed. People alienated him first, but he gradually involve in the social life with the support of some virtuous individuals. He accidentally finds a chance to support the Brahmin Mana, the once rich and pompous family where Ahalya, the Assassinated Ramabhadran Nambuthiri's daughter, her bed-bound mother and the younger brother, Kesu, live pathetically; as expiation for his past as an extremist, which devastated them. Ahalya starts a garment factory to export garments abroad with the support of Smitha, a social worker, and financial help from Arjunan. The women managed factory, as it prospers withstanding many hindrances, support many village women who lead lives in difficulties. Ahalya gets chance to understand Arjunanís real self and it develops to a soulful intimacy, but it is unacceptable to the village culture. Through the lives of many village characters and their strange lives, this novel visualizes a different world which will be definitely a novel experience to the readers around the word.
