Lanterns on the Lanes Lit for Life…

Author Name: George Abraham | Format: Paperback | Genre : Religion & Spirituality | Other Details

“Religions have evolved as a way of life; doctrines may fade as we move towards spirituality on the road to God which is bright as the daylight"

In this simple compilation, I have pictured a few lives, showed us some light to carry us through in the pervasive dark days of human lives.

I believe that God all merciful sends his messengers to take up mission and as they work with the delicate in need.

There are many more in the shadows working earnestly, never seen or heard much about, only God may know their beautiful, selfless works.

Thoughts came to me in the daunting times of COVID 19; the need looming large in acts of mercy and co-existence.  It recalled the road we travelled on a guiding light as lanterns on the lanes and saw beacons of hope.

 But will they fade away….

 Deviating halfway down the journey, we need to ask:

·         “Did we travel on the right path?”

·         “Will we inspire good minds to join us in the journey and embrace the unreached?”

·         “Will we ever try to live by the laws of nature?”

 Gita, the epic, in which Lord Krishna says, "If you walk in the path of Dharma if you absorb and follow the path of righteousness, then you not only emerge as a true leader but also serve and bring about a stronger nation, stronger universe and a stronger world."

The time has come for us to rethink and reset our way of lives, embrace life in its fullest potential, hear a Coherent answer, attain a peaceful world, and a meet a merciful God.  In this journey, we need your loving hearts, your caring hands and merciful deeds. We have seen some simple men and women do that in these dark days of sufferings. We shall Overcome… and make it a shining little blue marble, our home.

George Abraham

George was born to a large estate-owning family named Pottamkulam in the 1960s when plantation was the main trade. He says in 40 years while he grew up in comfort, the world in the estates changed, giving way to well-educated, diversified entrepreneurs from the plantations in South India.

He started Plantation Tourism in 2003 using colonial bungalows. He has compiled Books on Plantation History- Souvenirs from the Past a coffee table book on bungalow’s in Travancore in 2005; and in 2011, Path to the Hills, a comprehensive history of plantation upon Western Ghats and tourism. Simultaneously, in 2005, he networked plantation tourism to global tourism services.

All along the journey, George had his passion for exploring the lives of colonial Indians who were enterprising, compassionate and had religious tolerance. The Mission work of the early missionaries caught his attention, as his native place was one of the early Mission stations in Kerala. This book is a tribute to them and more.

George lives in Mundakayam near Periyar, Travancore, Kerala with his wife Anju, daughter Rose and son Abraham.

He is a compiler favoured by many Indian tour companies as a storyteller and friend for ex-planters’ descendants to trace roots in India.
