Interview with Mr. Anil Kurup of Musings from Trivandrum

Here's a blogger who doesn't open up much on his posts; however when he writes a comment on someone's posts that's where you will come to know him more. Especially his comments on Doc's & Balan Sir's posts are one of it's kind and I am a big fan of his comments.

His blog Musings is my frequent stop. I don't make out much of any political arguments however in some rare moments Mr. Anil Kurup does share from his heart and not mind.  Here's my favorite of his posts where he dedicates a song to his beautiful wife: "Sweet Caroline"

The quote here is by Chief Seattle which makes a bold statement on the blog header and makes you pause and appreciate the air we share. Please join me on my quest to getting-to-know yet another fellow blogger Mr. Anil Kurup!

"...all things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man ... the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports." Chief Seattle, Dwamish"

 ? Can you tell us a little about yourself? Please include where you are from.
! Born and brought up in Thiruvananthapuram. About me? nothing much, honestly. Just another ordinary person.

? How did you first get involved in blogging?
! Stumbled upon a few blogs and began to love the idea of having ones own little space to vent and peep into what others offer.

? What do you do when you aren’t blogging?
! Planning the next blog , I guess.Well, worrying and running my life.

? How did you come up with the name for your blog?
! It reflects the posts itself. They are just thoughts that go through my mind "musings".

? What is your favorite post that you have written? What makes it special?
! I cannot tell that specifically. How can I determine if what I think today is better than my thoughts of the other day, or may be lesser than of tomorrow?

? Any regrets about any of your posts?
! Certainly no.

? Tell us a joke please.
! Man is the best in the animal kingdom and the most reliable.

? What can readers expect in your blog? What is it about?
! You see I do not offer anything to the reader. I do not write in blogs to entertain or put down others. My postings are my musings, thoughts that I vent in my own virtual world.If any is appreciated or ridiculed , critiqued or ignored that is only incidental.

? Is there anything else you want to share?
! About what?

? Now, if you have a question for me (NRIGirl) this is your chance to ask.
! How do you rate the quality of "self respect"?. I'm not talking about ego, just simple plain self respect.

Great to see Anil, one of my closest pals here! What distinguishes his blog posts from all, I repeat all the blogs I visit, is his exemplary command of the English language ( I keep my Wordweb readily open while reading him!), the incisiveness, searing honesty and un-minced opinions that leave the reader with no escape route but to surrender!

Hi ,
Noted the posted "interview".
I 'm impressed, quite impressed with your idea of these short questions- interviews of Bloggers.
I will keep in mind your observation of "in rare moments sharing the heart and not the mind". If that is so , I guess it is not out of my volition , though I believed that I gave out more in the mind than in the heart.

Thanks for your interesting venture.

Anil Sir! It did turn out to be a great "interview" for sure. Thank you for being a part of this series. Much appreciated.

To answer your question: Self respect according to me should not be contingent upon success so that it will remain stable in any circumstances.

I am already a follower. I completely agree with Balan sir's comment. And I too have a google page open always when I read his posts! :D

Anil and Balan are blogger friends whom I have met.I felt the vibes of friendship,from the moment I met them. It was as if I had known them for long.I forgot to ask Anil how he has mastered the language.

What he has posted at Musings today on Nature, is a lesson for budding writers. I don't think anyone could do it better.Like an artist's brush,he paints with his words !
