    First of all, I am not aware of the place called "Permannur". I have never heard of this place, and I have never been anywhere close to this place, hence I am innocently ignorant. However, I am very pleased that the Permannur Parish is creating an effort to provide a special awareness towards women and their health care. Women deserve our best attention and dedication because each and every woman is giving so much to the household, specially towards their husbands. I have my dear partner for fiftyfive years without whose support I would have been dead long time ago. I am handicapped for the past nine months with a fractured leg, and my help has been a tremendous help and support for me, day and night, with utmost focus on her husband. What a lovely gift on earth that God can give to a man of the house with so much of devotion, love and care. Thank you, God, for giving us such a lovely gift in life within the four walls of our dear home. Myself and my two sons will ever remain grateful for the best and valuable gift that has been bestowed upon us.

    We would like Permannur Parish to rise to the occasion of honoring the women every now and then so that the Parish comes forward with something special in dedication to all the women. In the audience that we witness in the pictures, there are more women than the men, and that was surprising. Men should come forward and initiate many more projects in honor of the women. Women in India are very "forward looking". They are well educated. They are very affectionate and they are very energetic as well. May God take good care of all our women.
