- 49th year of death of THUKALAM PAILO AVIRA, former Lay trustee (1935-’62) of the Jacobite Syrian Church (d. 31 Oct 1962).
He became the lay trustee in 1935 at the historic Karingachira Association and was since then been a close associate of Valiya Thirumeni. There is a general perception spread by MOC that all the cases (mainly the compensation case) against our bishops has been withdrawn by MOC following the peace of 1958, but the fact is that they didn't withdraw the case for compensation against the lay trustee even after the said peace day and this case was remaining like a 'sword over head', taken as a precaution against any possible uprising of the Jacobite Syrian Christian again. This case died only with his death that happened on 31 Oct 1962.
