New Catholicos of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church

I'm a bit behind the times, but on Monday the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in India enthroned its new first hierarch, Catholicos Basil Mar Thomas Paul I ("Baselios Mar Thoma Poulose I") of the East. The new catholicos leads the larger part of the Orthodox Church in India, which is in schism from its mother the Syriac Orthodox Church (which also maintains a large following in Kerala), but remains on good terms with its sister Oriental Orthodox Churches.
