Abstract

A priest whose commitment to justice was a way of living his faith and working hard for the betterment of fishworkers, Thomas Kocherry was a firebrand among social workers on Kerala’s coast for over three decades. His talent lay in translating ideas into a language that could inspire and mobilise, and move people to action. Rightly known for his courage and compassion, Tom, as he was popularly known, left behind a void that is not easy to fill.
