  1. A deep rooted tree on the river bank always flourish in sweet fruit, peeping through leaves evergreen. That is why Rev Mani did not fall sick. But, rise he did! Nay, he was raised to rest by loving father, in joy of tears without cares.
    From kottayam to bangalore, dear Mani was replanted to meet his better half and then to proceed to USA to water his fathers field to yield the growing glow of glory and grace Devine.
    God is beyond space and time. He is present with all anywhere at the same time. Nobody can hide from him. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes. This is the god to whom we must explain all that we have done. In fact we have his spirit living inside us. All of us together, are the temple of god and the spirit of god lives in us.
