Abraham, who was born in Kerala in 1889, moved to Sri Lanka after some time. There he taught people to think from a scientific point of view. He told them how these established god-men were actually spiritual frauds and also exposed the phenomena behind the magical appearance of ‘Holy Ash’. He had also written a book titled Begone Godmen and Gods.
