The name of Sadhu is so relevent that nobody believe that he was dead 65 years before. Lived as shadow of Jesus Christ in Malankara and accept the decisions from God without any questioning. It is so joyful that I can see him at the days Jesus Christ.

What can I write here,I wonder.The life of Sadhu as learned through the commentaties is unbelievable,especially when we look upon the todays said spiritual workers who live in big mansions and enjoy all the pleasures of the world in the wake of Gospel work. Let such freuds learn the life that Sadhu lived and at least try to follow some of the good examples that Sadhu has left behind for the people who love the Lord. Hearty congratulations for this venture.
