Over the past 15 years, Archbishop Thomas Menamparampil has gained a well-deserved reputation in India and throughout Asia as a peace maker, and earlier this year he was proposed as a candidate for the Nobel Prize for Peace.

This dynamic, inspiring member of the Salesian order, who turned 75 last month, has worked most of his priestly life in India’s troubled north-eastern region which is home to 200 tribes and 40 million people, among them 6 million Christians, including 1.5 million are Catholics.
