  1. Mar

    Mar or Mor is a title of respect in Syriac, literally meaning 'my lord'. It is given by custom to all bishops and saints. The corresponding feminine form given to women saints is Mart or Mort. The title is placed before the Christian name, as in Mar Aprem/Mor Afrem and Mart/Mort Maryam. This is the original meaning of the name Martha 'A Lady'. The variant Maran or Moran, meaning 'Our Lord', is a particular title given to Jesus, either alone or in combination with other names and titles. Likewise, Martan or Mortan is a title of Mary. Occasionally, the term Maran or Moran has been used of various patriarchs and catholicoi. The Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch, the Malankara Orthodox Catholicos and the Syro-Malankara Major Archbishop Catholicos use the title Moran Mor. Sometimes the Indian bearers of this title are called Moran Mar, using a hybrid style from both Syriac dialects that reflects somewhat the history of Syrian Christians in Kerala. The Pope of Rome is referred to as Mar Papa by the Nasranis of India.

    Mumbai nunca deja de sorprenderme, incluso después de más de tres décadas desde que salí de esa ciudad de dicotomías. Las paradojas son desconcertantes tanto como inquietante, por ejemplo, la riqueza extremas yuxtapuestos con la pobreza atroz; personas indiferentes y duros de corazón co-existente con modelos increíblemente generosos y excepcionalmente amables; icónica comerciales, pasos elevados, los rascacielos y los enlaces al mar justo al lado de barrios marginales asquerosamente dispersos; brillantes científicos y artistas increíbles que viven en paz con la fe ciega y supersticiones en la vida cotidiana, etc son sólo algunas paradojas que vienen a la mente. y sí, es sólo la punta del iceberg. La ciudad de las dicotomías a menudo deja al visitante con un millón de preguntas que son tan difíciles de responder.
