His father who was an avid reader and an active member in DC Books book club was instrumental in inculcating the love for books in him. From his early childhood itself, Mr. Mangalath was introduced to the world of classic novels, short stories, poems and essays brought home by his father. This implanted the seed of reading and writing in him. He started writing poems and short stories from his schooling years and at present, his short stories have been published in leading Malayalam journals. Later, his enthusiasm for reading and watching plays of master dramatists like Omcheri, N. Krishnapilla, Naredraprasad, and Thoppil Bhasi among others instilled in him the love for scripting plays. Even though he wrote many scripts, he never published it. However,that experience fine-tuned his writing skills and instilled in him the confidence to become a screenplay writer.
