“I” is for Interview: Jidhu Jose the Blogger from Doha Interviewed me…

Yet another interview from a foreign land:


Jidhu Jose, an IT Engineer by profession, and a Blogger cum photographer from Doha interviewed me today in the hectic schedule of A to Z business.  


I present it here for your further reading as well as  my take for the day,  Yes, Today’s Letter is “I” I is for Interview 


Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?


I am Philip Verghese ‘Ariel’, a native of Kerala, commonly known as the “God’s Own Country”.  Born and brought up in the villages of Pothanicadu, near Moovattupuzha and Valanjavattom near Thiruvalla, Kerala, India.  Presently I am working in a Christian Organization as an editor to its publication division.  I started blogging, (not exactly blogging) writing at a very young age.  Started writing Malayalam poems, articles and stories.   And a good number of them were published in the leading Malayalam publications like the Malayalam Manorama Daily, Balarama, Deepika Daily, Kuttikalude Deepika, Balayugam, Poompaatta, Balabhoomi etc My main genre is spiritual or religious ones, and I published a good number of articles, and poems in the print media.  At a later stage I entered into the secular field and published many number of letters, stories and poems in English and in Malayalam languages. . I was a regular contributor to major English publications like India Today, The Week, Outlook, The Open Magazine, Tehelka and The Sunday Indian etc.   And at a later stage one of my colleagues suggested me to write on web pages or to start a blog page of your own. I thought, it a good idea to start a blog page of my own.  And I did a search and found out few platforms and started posting materials to them and finally concentrated on Google’s Knol pages and then Google’s blogger pages.  And now I am regularly post blogs in my English (Philipscom) and Malayalam blogs (Arielinte kurippukal – Ariel’s Jottings).  Some of my writings translated into Hindi and Telugu languages.

  3. Hi PHil, great to read this interview and learn more about you. I love that you’re a poet and an artist. I like that because we’re similar. When I was younger, before blogging, I wrote poems in my native Serbian and was quite a literary buff. I still like to read a lot and my favorite poets are Homer, Dante Shakespeare and Goethe.
