My Great Grandfather, Rev. Vethamanickam of Osaravilai CSI Church (formerly LMS in Kanyakumari and surrounding areas) had 5 daughters and one son. The eldest daughter Gnanavadivu and her family moved to Colombo in the early forties of the last century. Later, some of her descendants came back to Nagercoil and Neyyoor and settled there.
However, the family of Jasmine Acca migrated to Germany, after miraculously escaping the genocidal tide of violence in 1983. Two of her sons are with her now there in Germany and the other two had gone to Canada and the United Kingdom.
This Jasmine Acca had paid a short visit to Chennai and we were in fact blessed of meeting her at our Secretariat Colony residence.
See, how the children are blessed of a servant of God, who died in utter poverty in an unknown village!
O Lord, your ways are in deep waters! Who’s here to find and follow your blessed footsteps, Lord?
