Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

Went to Mass on a night-out yesterday. Never quite tried that out before! Anyway, it was also the first Syro-Malabar Mass I've attended since ... uh ... hmm ... when was the last time I went to a Syro-Malabar Mass? Anyway, last night, while having dinner at my LGs' (Local Guardians), I was told that, during weekdays, the Readings of the Mass at our local Syro-Malabar church happen in English because children in Mumbai do not know Malayalam! Disgraceful, isn't it? Anyway, the upside is that, because the church is new, this situation is not expected to last long. Along with Catechism, Malayalam classes have also been launched at this local church - so I guess SM kids should be able to do the Readings in Malayalam in a year or so.
