Agragami – The forerunner - is St. John the Baptist, a prophet who prepared the way for Jesus Christ.. The initials of ‘J’ and ‘B’ joined and crowned by the cross forms the main part of the Emblem. The waves suggest the waters of river Jordan where St. John the Baptist baptized thousands of people. The Holy Bible shows John as the man of Integrity, the fearless ascetic, the humble and selfless forerunner of Christ. The burning torch in the emblem is a symbol of His zealous life. The zeal for God’s kingdom fills him with fire. John stood for TRUTH and JUSTICE and risked his head and his future. He remains as burning torch for us and for the people of all times.
