    The visit of President may be a boon to the Kottayam citizens and people near Ashtmudi Kayal area. Before her visit, the local government departments will spruce up the areas and there will all round improvements in the infrastructure facilities in these areas and the areas through which the president pass through.

    The boat race teams in the area will have one more opportunity to compete and show their mettle in the rowing.

    The centenary celebration of the Kottayam Arch Diocese is not the correct nomenclature as the history pints out to the existence of the church in 1887 itself by Pope Leo XIII. Thereafter there were changes in the rites and they were allowed to have their own rites in 1896. In 1911 the Pope Pius X conferred the Universal Christiani to the church. The centenary celebration is of this incident of 1911.
