He got to familiarize himself with Banking laws. The drafting of various documents pertaining to securities at the bank led him to the writing of several books, the most recent, published in 2008, being "Guide to Decisions of the Supreme Court of Mauritius affecting Banking (1861 - 2007)" with a foreword by the Chief Justice of Mauritius.

The book entitled "Manuel de droit bancaire mauricien" recently launched by the MCB Ltd has largely made reference thereto.
