This is my homepage, so I have to say something about myself. Sometimes it is hard to introduce yourself because you know yourself so well that you do not know where to start with. Let me give a try to see what kind of image you have about me through my self-description. I hope that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not so different. Here it goes. I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I am just someone who does some teaching, some research, and some writing. But my dream is still alive.
Vision, when it stems from the heart and spirit, when it is pure and intense, possesses awesome electromagnetic energy. You can rely, young man, upon this ageless promise as surely as you can rely upon the eternally unbroken promise of sunrise.Accept your destiny and go ahead with your life. Forget this failure, as you are destined for a different path. I took a different path with strong desires to lead my life.
I fully involved myself in my work, with a strong desire to achieve wherever and whatever work I did. Vision brought forth desires, desires brought forth dreams and dreams brought them into reality. Looking the way back, I feel now how true it is. Desires drive us to achieve the things we wanted to have. We are all born with a divine fire within us. When the desire is pure and intense, the fire gets ignited by the desire. The light which comes out of the fire will energize us and dispel the darkness and we all should strive for keeping up the light for achieving greatness for ourselves. This is a brief introduction of myself. If you are interested in knowing more, logon my web sites.
My Dream Projects
1998 onwards I am working for this dedicated dream projects. In 1998 I have started a web site for our church ie, http://www.orthodoxsyrianchurch.org, that is the first ever site of the Malankara Orthodox church in the web. In 2002 I shifted this site to a portal for all Indian Christian communities.
I believe that this portal would be timely and very much in keeping with the spirit of His words " All May be one " That would be a step toward Christians recoganising fellow Christians across denominations. I hope this work would whisper to Indian Christians of various denominations that " they are birds of the same feather flying different ways to one destination where they would flock together " : Our Lord Jesus Christ, inspired us, emboldened us when problems loomed, and guided us past all abstract and solid impediments to a gratifying finish. I invite you all, to share the richness on the journey of enlightenment toward Salvation and the reconciliation of all people.
May Almighty God Bless You all
