An Interview with Prof. George Menachery by a German TV presenter

Question: Where do you get your ideas?

GM: I try to draw my idea from real life as much as possible, such as things I notice in my own land around me, in the life and culture of people I know or I have known in childhood. These ideas I test for truth with books, documents, other sources.

Q: What has the response been to your most recent speeches?

GM: Most people have been very interested in them. Though some have been greatly disturbed by them, too. The christians themselves are surprised and others shocked. But death threats aside, I feel it is all to the good,as Jeeves would have said.
