KOCHI: For 92-year-old K A Kumaran it was a moment of great pride and delight when he saw his daughter Lalitha K K in the convocation gown, with the certificate proclaiming that she has been enrolled with the Bar Council of Kerala. She was one among the 120 law graduates who were enrolled as advocates at a function held at the Maharaja’s College Auditorium here on Sunday.

But, I had decided to pursue my dream when I retire from the bank. I will start practicing as soon as possible,” said Lalitha.

Ramban in Lawyer’s Garb

Kochuparambil Geevarghese Ramban of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church might be the odd man out among those who were enrolled as advocates on Sunday. At the convocation ceremony, his long beard and Church robe made him the centre of attraction.  Though he is serving as vicar of St George Orthodox Church, Kathipparathadom, in the enrolment certificate, his name is given as Pramodu K A.  The 40-year-old priest was ordained a sub-deacon in January 2002, and he completed Orthodox Theology course from the Theological Seminary during the 2003-2008 period. Later, he was ordained deacon, and then as priest and Dayaroyuso. The enrolment function was attended by his family members.
