Malankara Jacobite

    Syrian Christian Network






Radio Malankara

On the eve of our 8th birthday, SOCM-Forum is crossing another milestone in its development, by adding another activity to its operation. We have started an Internet radio named as "shubho", for those members who love to listen the beauty of the Syriac Orthodox Worships, liturgical, traditional and special occasions songs, as well as hearing spiritual messages.


On Sep 4, 2008, at a grand function held in connection with the famous Eight-day lent festival at the Manarcad Morth Mariam Jacobite Syrian Cathedral, the internet radio of the Syriac Orthodox Church,  "Shubho"-Radio Malankara, promoted by was officially inaugurated by His Beatitude the Catholicos Aboon Mor Baselios Thomas I, the head of the Church in India.


For more details of official launching the radio

In the Syriac Aramaic language,
"shubho" means, "Glory"

Psalms 150: 1-6 says

1: Praise ye the LORD.
    Praise God in his sanctuary:
    praise him in the firmament of his power.

2: Praise him for his mighty acts:
    praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3: Praise him with the sound of the trumpet:
    praise him with the psaltery and harp.
4: Praise him with the timbrel and dance:
    praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
5: Praise him upon the loud cymbals:
    praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
6: Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.

These verses alone is our great inspiration for this project.

This project is initiated by SOCM-FORUM and it was a collective and successful effort of our faithful from different parts of the world.

The mission of the team behind
"shubho" is to praise HIM and to uphold the true faith of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church, handed over to us by our forefathers, as well as to make a platform for all Syriac Orthodox Christians around the world to listen the beauty of the Holy Syriac Orthodox Church worship. Our vision is to take "shubho" to new heights and to be the premier broadcasting station of its kind on internet.

We are fully aware that the e-radio
"shubho" is presently in its infancy and its further development and success will be entirely dependent on your right feed back and encouragement. The test broadcasting is now started on a 24-hrs basis, and you can hear it on the following URL:
. We request all of you to hear the radio and give us your valuable comments about the e-radio.

Also please support us by remembering this project in your prayers and providing us more audio (MP3) recordings of Syriac Orthodox worship, songs of different occasions and spiritual talks of our prelates, clergy and church recognized lay ministers.

We submit this project for the ultimate glory of our Lord Almighty and for the Holy Church.


Listen and be blessed
