Kochi, July, 12th, 2016 (MattersIndia). Sister Jiya is creating history as the first Catholic nun in India to write the script and dialogue for a full length movie. She wrote the script for the film “Ente vella thooval” (my white feather), which is now under production in Kerala, southern India.

Cardinal George Alencherry, head of the Syro-Malabar Church, released the film’s music DVD in Kochi on July 8. Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Pulickal of Kanjirapally received the first copy at a function held at St Thomas Mount in Kakkanad, the Church’s headquarters.

Sister Jiya is a member of the Medical Sisters of St Joseph. She is currently serving as a lab technician at St Sebastian’s Hospital in Cherupuzha, a village in Kannur district of Kerala. She has already published a collection of poems titled, “Eesokku oru pookkuda” (A bouquet for Jesus), reports Hridaya Vayal, a Malayalam religious news portal.
