Photos of H.H. Mar Didymus 1, Catholicos of the East-Malankara
Metropolitan and a delegation of about 150 including bishops from the
Indian Orthodox Church visiting H.B. Torkom 11, the Armenian Patriarch
of Jerusalem and celebration of liturgy at St. Mark's Syrian Orthodox
Church. About half of the group will journey on to Egypt later this
week for an audience with the Coptic Pope Shenouda in Alexandria
before returning to Kerala on May 8.

Is there two Indian Orthodox Churches  ?? one in communion with the Syrian Church and other not ??
We believe that our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Logos, is perfect in His Divinity and perfect in His Humanity. He made His Humanity One with His Divinity without Mixture, nor Mingling, nor Confusion. we Anathematize the Doctrines of both Nestorius and Eutyches

There are two factions.  This is discussed in more detail in this earlier thread:

Yes. The Malankara Orthodox Church (Indian Orthodox Church) is autocephalous and is headed by His Holiness Baselios Marthoma Didymos I, Catholicos of the East. The Malankara Orthodox Syriac Church (the Jacobite church) is headed by His Holiness Ignatius Zakka I Iwas, Patriarch of Antioch. See the thread for details.

Well that depends on what you mean by 'teachings.' As far as faith goes, both confess the same Apostolic oriental orthodox faith. They do, however, differ in their teachings when it comes to the history and development of the Indian Church. So the difference is purely one of jurisdiction, and not of faith.

hehe...your question may turn this thread into a warzone.
From what I know, all OO churches (except the Syriac church) hold the view that the schism is an internal problem of the Indian church, and that both groups are in communion with the OO. Clergy from both groups have concelebrated the Divine Liturgy with other OO clerics.

If you want to know more about the dispute itself, I recommend the wikipedia article on the Catholicos of the East. It presents both viewpoints fairly well:
