Re: Peace treaty
- Dear Elias,
Thanks a lot for the suggestion and I will keep the same in mind.
But I don't know any method to understand what is about to come in
tomorrow's tv news and then to switch it off or change the
channel.Anyway, will be cautious in days to come.
About the beautiful usage "psycological slavery"...as far as I
know,Jesus also lived outside India..christ's followers were first
called 'christians' at some place.....Acts suggest it as an Arab
destination only...So what do you call yourself..who is
psycologically..and emotionally..self-contained and superior
Down through the years we had enough trouble.People like me were not
even born when we had days of major hardships.Most of those,I had to
read from publications or were word of mouth from my parents.But
now,we are in the headlines all these days.All other sects are making
fun of us.Eg.Hello Kerala programme by Asianet yesterday(27th
Dec)..Kerala Kaumudi etc.
Many churches in south..down from Kottayam onwards had problems
earlier adn through these years.We lost quite a lot of old churches
and there were days of tears for our ancestors who had to leave from
the home parish to safeguard our true faith.I have witnessed problems
for funerals from my childhood onwards.Those problems didn't get much
attention from all parts of the state (as on today) then and we were
the losers as we were not so united then.
Now,maybe because of the tore-apart team,problems still stand on our
way..and all of us realized the need to stand united for the word of
our faith.Its interesting to note that all problems and claims raised
now are in our churches (where we have clear majority) and life is
same as earlier in their churches.Why there is no issues in south
churches where they have majority?And why they even claim right on
our newly built churches here which were built after our grandfathers
had to leave their home church?Only reason is that our leaders always
taught us to compromise.We were ready of that in a desperate desire
for peace.Now with our Bava thirumeni and all of our true and eminent
thirumeni's in front,we should settle this deal this time for ever
and ever.Let us all keep in heart that whatever decisions/compromise
made at the end should assure atleast one thing in black and
white..that we will never again have to face any problem from
them.Hope that the newyear keep this promise in store for all of us.
Wish you all a great year ahead.May all your hopes , dreams and
wishes be realized in the coming year.
