My dear Br. ‘george p. koshy’ –
Thank you for bringing this note back to the forefront of the forum – as it was dead and gone for almost two and half years. The original post was made on 26 Jul 2006 4:NN PM, during the time when there was a lot of ‘finger pointing’ as you say and bickering and disagreements regarding this subject.
Because of the very ‘pointing of fingers’ that you are alluding to and to which you are an ardent contributor in my humble observation and opinion, which can be contested by you by all means – I had refrained from looking at this forum for a while in the past several months. Hope you will thus understand and pardon the delay in the response to your poke.
At that time it occurred to me that many contributors may not have really thought through or made an effort in earnest to study themselves on this topic of such consuming interest to them, which I personally find curious (I mean the level of interest) which I may suggest is because of the cultural interest or bias or influence - meaning, that of the ‘B/brethren’ that you were also a part of, while in Kerala.
Hence I outlined a method above, for examination of the said topic by individuals, a method that works for me. Since you did not contribute any other method of study, which in itself astonishingly departs from your normal forte; I would take it that it was acceptable to you also.
Regardless, I find it very interesting even after more than two years, you have not been able to form an opinion on this subject, which is of probably no fault of yours, as it seems, this is a complex one in comparison to many others that are being debated here!
Would it be then possible, and fit to your reason, that I may request that you kindly follow the guidelines posted in item #6 above, especially, for you to continue this discussion?
