Three years ago The Hindu honored an educationist and spokesperson of the Jacobite Syrian Church,  Fr. Varghese Kallapara, who said, ““Life is a blessing to be experienced with an open heart and a call to devote yourself to your Maker.”

I came across this article while searching for other authors’ comments on Jesus Christ as an educationist. The last line of the article addressed my query: “Jesus Christ’s message of love towards one’s neighbour was the key to world peace.”

I can’t help but acknowledge my ignorance and question what prejudice exists within me that I find myself surprised to see such a quote in an online news forum whose title would lead me to expect something from a different world view.
