The Rogation of the Ninevites is not at all lost among the Puthenkoor Orthodox Churches!
Although the Puthenkoor have lost the East Syriac Rite, in adopting the West Syriac Rite, they haven’t lost the Syriac ethos nor the Syriac celebrations and feasts and fasts, including the Rogation of the Ninevites.
In fact, the Rogation fast is always strongly encouraged as a preparation for the 50 day fast of Lent.
The procession with a ship, is of course, not used — that doesn’t at all seem to be what the Syriacs do in West Asia either. It must be some local thing in Kuravalingad.
