The Location

Know Kerala!!!!!
 Kerala is a strip of a state on the south- western edge of the Indian peninsula, just 650 km long and 120km at its widest. This land, sandwiched between the Arabian Sea to the west and a tropical mountain range to its east, is from where the monsoon starts (the rainy season for the rest of the Indian sub-continent).
Forty-four mountain rivers further cut up this tropical strip into fertile river deltas making Kerala a lush, wet and explosively fertile bit of real estate, distinctly different from the rest of India and the world.
 
This unique biosphere has given rise to such rare and unique herbs, spices, fruits and animals that it altered World History. For centuries Kerala was the most sought after destination worldwide being the birthplace of Pepper at a time when pepper was far more valuable than gold. Her liberal and intelligent rulers welcomed trade settlers and set up seaports from the days of King Solomon.
As descendants of settlers from the Middle East, China, Europe and Africa since centuries mingled with the local populace, it gave rise to a multi-cultural mix that reflects in the everyday life here, even to this day.


Here are some exciting facts: -

  • King Solomon and Cleopatra is said to have picked up their spices, elephants and timber from here.
  • Christianity hit Kerala within years of Jesus's death on the cross.
  • Among the worlds first Christians were Keralites, a good 400 years before Europeans embraced it.
  • Arabic settlers were here even before the advent of Islam!
  • Hindus, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Jains, Buddhists and others have lived here since the last 2000 years and more, in great harmony.
  • Many Portuguese and Chinese words have been assimilated into Malayalam - the native language of Kerala
  • Chinese fishing nets are still in vogue here.
  • Kerala is also the first state in the world to have an elected Communist government that sincerely and effectively brought about sweeping land reforms and free education for all.
