PATHANAMTHITTA: Joseph Mar Thoma, Metropolitan of Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar, said here on Sunday that the rising incidence of suicides was due to the fact that today�s youth failed to understand the meaning of life.
The Mar Thoma Metropolitan was delivering the valedictory message at the 115th Maramon Convention, which concluded on Sunday at its traditional venue of the Pampa river-bed.
�Man has no right to destroy God-given life and he should face the challenges and threats in life by keeping faith in God,� the Metropolitan said.
Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma said an insight into life was necessary to accept the varied experiences and man should have a definite idea of social life.
