The third endeavor of BMM Creations for the Orthodox Malayalee Community all over the world, the new Web Malayalam Edition of Indian Orthodox Herald, had launched today, April 3, 2010. This Malayalam Edition is dedicated to the sacred memory of LL Baselios Marthoma Mathews I, the fifth Catholicos of Malankara, who has always been the motive force behind the BMM Creations.
One can access the Web Malayalam Edition by clicking on the red navigation bar ‘Malayalam’ on extreme top right portion of English Edition of Indian Orthodox Herald. Thereafter one can navigate oneself by clicking on various nav-bars in Malayalam itself. Bonnie Mathew is the web developer.
“To updating Church-news to the world wide Malankara Orthodox presence, Indian Orthodox Herald is doing an exemplary job. There-beyond Indian Orthodox Herald puts up important suggestions with a specific aim to highlight the growth of Malankara Church. This is what I appreciate and therefore, I wish all success to the new Web Malayalam Edition also”, said the Sabha Secretary Dr. George Joseph.
Indian Orthodox Herald began its online edition in English in February 2002. It was in 2005 March that the pdf Malayalam online edition started honoring the frequent and wide spread requests of Indian Orthodox Herald readers. This was frequented as one issue on every alternate day. In order to collect news and to prepare the news paper on pdf format, an office of Indian Orthodox Herald was also opened at Thazhakkara, Mavelikkara under the Resident Editorship of Mr. George Thazakkara.
2007 onwards various online media handling Church news have set in and Orthodox Herald Malayalam edition as pdf was therefore limited as weekly. However, demand for an online Church-news edition in Malayalam with daily updates with a scope beyond the weekly pdf news paper became real strong and this new Web Malayalam Edition is thought to fill that gap up, which readers have appropriately identified. The pdf Malayalam weekly format will continue without interruptions with a revised emphasis on articles and speeches that highlight the faith, theology, history, liturgy and tradition etc. of the Malankara Church.
