    Babukutty thanks for the compliments,but the revolutionary decision taken by the church is meant for lady members who is a widower,spinster and not for those having men who leads the family.

    This is a revolutionary decision taken by our church especially H.G. Yuliose thirumeni. Best wishes to thirumeni and Ms.Jaya.

    Some comments may be coming from their culture and family back ground. Don’t give much importance

  3. Joseph John says:

    Beena Thanks for your compliments,but in my family the lady members won’t even sit in front of male members.

  4. Beena Bijoy says:

    @ Joseph John: Just to correct the fact. Jaya Koshy comes from Mattackal family where there are two Bishops and countless priests serves the sabha. Please contact us to know more about our family.

    But your comments and your language proves that you don’t come from a cultured family.
