Education and Childhood Memories:

Young P V 
Philip Verghese Ariel
Young P V

My Basic education was in Malayalam, a popular regional language in Kerala, one of India’s southern states.  I have completed my Pre – University education in English from St. Aloysius College, Edathua, Kerala, and  finished higher studies from Osmania University Hyderabad and Ranchi university). I have secured my Postgraduate diploma in Journalism from The Rajendra Prasad Institute of Mass Communication (Bhavan’s College) in Hyderabad.

I was an avid reader in my early days, and many of my Knols capture the memories of this time.
P V Ariel
My Beloved Mother

As an example, you can read A Brief Memoir of My Mother. Saramma Verghese.  She was my source of inspiration in my writings, especially on my spiritual writings she had a great influence.

A knol on How I got my pen name “Ariel” and my encounter with a famous Malayalam Poet and writer are some of my early experiences in my writing life. Read more here.


I have translated some of the books and articles of prominent authors in the English language into the Malayalam language.  Few of them are given below:
Dr. Woodrow Kroll: (President, Back to the Bible, Lincoln, Nebraska, USA), A popular speaker at such conference as ‘The Cove”, Bibletown and Word of Life’.  Author of numerous magazine articles and books including ‘7 Secrets to Spiritual Success,Empowered to Prayer’  “Giants of the Old Testament” etc). Read More Here.
Wesley L. Duewel:  A former president of OMS International. A missionary to India for 25 years, is also the author of ‘Ablaze for God’, Heroes of the Holy Life (Ebook, ePub) More God, More Power, Revival Fire etc.
John MacArthur: A well-known author and preacher, President of  “Grace to You”  Ministries, and  Masters College and Seminary, Sun Valley, CA). He has authored more than 30 books, including fifteen volumes of the ‘MacArthur New Testament Commentary’, Charismatic Chaos, Signs, and Wonders Speaking and scores of articles and study guides.
Latest on this line is the translation of the book George Verwer’s “More Drops”
George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilisation, a Christian missions organization. Verwer has written several books on various Christian themes.

Web and other Blog Writings:

I also write and blog at different sites on the present political situation and on Christian spiritual articles:
Gulf Brethren Voice
Also write at different Social Web Sites, like twitter, facebook, orkut, digg, delicious etc..
I also contribute to several secular newsweeklies and newspapers like The Week, The Sunday Indian, Outlook, India Today etc.
I authored many Christian Spiritual articles especially in the Malayalam language, and also composed about 60 Christian spiritual songs and poems.  Few selected ones can read here at my knol Malayalam Directory. I am also the recipient of many literary prizes. My  Malayalam Writings and Malayalam Knol Directory:

I have created a new Malayalam Directory of my knols:
Here you can read few of my Malayalam writings, and also some of the translations of prominent knol authors like Peter Baskerville, Shastri JC Philip, Gust MEES and others.
Few of them you can read here. Peter Baskerville’s coffee Knol into the Malayalam language.  Read More Here:
Shastri JC Philip,   നോള്‍ എന്തിനെഴുതണം? (why write a knol?),ന-ള-എന-ത-ന-ഴ-തണ-why-write-a-knol/3aw752rt3ywhc/188
A Recent one on this line is an invitation knol to my fellow Malayalees (persons who know the Malayalam language—or known as Keralites). It can be read here നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കും ഒരു നോള്‍ എഴുത്തുകാരനാകാം… (You Too Can Become a Knol Author…)
I also started translating a knol series on Computer basics written by Gust MEES and Knol Publishing Guild (KPG)
More of my Malayalam Knols can read here: Malayalam Knol Directory.

Recently I created a Malayalam blog titled  “Arielinte Kurippukal”- Ariel’s Jottings (ഏരിയലിന്റെ കുറിപ്പുകള്‍). After the Knol’s closure, I am mostly concentrating on this blog and many of my Malayalam, as well as other writings, are slowly migrating to this place.

A Word  About My Involvement with Google’s Knol:

Though I have joined knol on September 23rd, 2008 I was inactive for quite some time and recently I started contributing again and it’s really interesting and encouraging to interact with people here, though I had some unpleasant experiences with few, but that was a blessing in disguise and it helped me to go further with more vigor and enthusiasm. And within a short span, I could make it to the ‘Top Viewed Author Award’ list and could make comments and reviews to the other authors at knol.  I now introduce and encourage my friends and other contacts to join this community called KNOL  Though knol is still in its infancy thousands of contributors are already joined and it is a fast-growing website to acquire genuine and trustworthy information about anything in this universe.  There is a good response to my call and few are already here with their knols on my invitation and doing a tremendous job here.
I take this opportunity to invite my other friends and readers to actively involve here at knol as well as to tell about this to their friends and relatives.  Knol is a wonderful place to air your knowledge, views on any subject.

A Word About My Writing Experience:

The role of the Hindu newspaper describes some new experiences I had after leaving my native place. As I have mentioned in one of these Knols, I slowly shifted my writing from Malayalam to English. A good number of my works were published in the print media, and have procured many literary prizes for my writings.  My work has appeared in newspapers, weeklies, magazines and on the web, mainly on the Christian religion and the subjects related to the Bible. I have also concentrated on subjects like current affairs, social problems, and politics with many of my political articles appearing in different print media. Some of them can be read at this link here at knol. Some of my Write-ups (Published and unpublished) – Part I
Before joining Knol I was an active member and source/content producer for the site called (AC).  I really enjoyed being with people there and had a good rapport with many co-writers there.  From AC, I secured a good number of contacts in the writing field and I still maintains those relationships.  Two of the AC authors interviewed me. My first interview was with Mr. Donald Pennington of USA. Donald is an active member and source/content producer/contributor at AC, and a top 1000 and Hot 500 badge holder. Read more @ this link about that interview. Ladies and gentlemen P.V.Ariel
Another interview was published at AC by another Associated content writer Sheryl Young. She is a well known Jewish author and freelance writer and a three-time Amy Foundation “Roaring Lambs” Writing Award, Winner. She is also a Concerned Women for America 2002 Special Projects Award recipient. Sheryl is the Author of the book “What Every Christian Should Know About The Jewish People” Read more @ this link. Sheryl Young
