My reading habit continued and started reading all Malayalam Newspapers available in the library. Malayalam newspaper’s letters (Kathukal) column attracted me a lot and I started sending letters to this column. Immediately after sending letters to the newspapers I eagerly wait for the next day’s paper to see my letters, but nothing published, again I send, nothing published. This continued for few days without any result. Days and months passed I could not find any result. I was really frustrated at that but my passion for newspapers and writings did not stopped me there, instead with more care I prepared letters and send. One fine morning as usual when I picked up the daily I found my letter printed with my name. I was overjoyed by seeing my name in print that too in one of the major and famous publication called Malayala Manorama. (The largest circulated Malayalam daily in Kerala and also the leading and largest circulated vernacular daily in India). www.manoramaonline.com
About that time I heard about a Christian magazine called “Suviseshakan” (Evangelist) published by a well known evangelist from Madurai (Tamil Nadu State). I thought of sending some of my writings to that magazine and picked up some of the jottings from my note books and copied it in a paper and send it to the Editor. A week later I received a letter from the editor saying, ”the story which you send is good and will publish it in one of the coming issues, but the song is not up to the mark but don’t give up, write more ok!!” Reading the editor’s letter I could not control myself, with joy, I jumped up and down. My first story is going to see the light of the day, that too in M E Cherian Sir’s Magazine. (A word about M E Cherian, lovingly known or called as ‘M E C’ or ‘Cherian Sir’. (Before becoming an evangelist he was a high school teacher, so most of the people called him Cherian Sir).

Later he become a well known Christian preacher, teacher, song writer and a poet in the Malayalam language. A good number of his Christian melodies are sung by the Malayalee (Keralaites) Christians in their congregations in worships as well as at other occasions all over the world. He published many books on spiritual subjects).
