Survive in a Novus Ordo parish inspite of having Traditional Catholic leanings...?
#10
Are there any un-latinized Syro-Malabar or Malankara parishes close to you?  Do any of them adhere to the authentic Syriac tradition?  If possible, I would suggest going to those in preference to a traditional Latin parish.  The Syriac rite and spirituality is part of the patrimony of India - don't let it be wiped out if you can help it!  The Latin church didn't mind suppressing it when Portugal colonized Kerala, it is not good that the Latins should have a greater foothold in India than the Syriac churches, as they would cry foul if an Eastern rite ever poached away its own people in the West.  I'm sorry to say it, but some traditional Latin Catholics are very chauvinist about their rite.  Perhaps a strong Syro-Malabar church could absorb the lax Roman parishes into it one day.
