Kerala is India’s most idyllic state. Endowed generously by nature, it is an exotic paradise of golden beaches, palm-fringed backwaters mist-covered hills, lush tropical forests and unique wildlife. Kerala also has a rich cultural heritage and tradition of performing arts.
In the midst of all greenery and countless coconut palms, are the pepper creepers swaying enticingly in the gentle breeze, which have, all through history brought sea-traders to this legendary land. Ships from countries of the East and the West, laden with gold anchored off the ports of Kerala bringing the Arabs, the Jews and the Christians to this marvel land. Today Kerala presents a melting-pot of various cultures blending in graceful harmony.
Better known as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala is today one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. It has been described by the National Geographic’s Traveller magazine as ‘one of the 50 places of a lifetime’.
Kerala is also foremost in having the largest inflow of petro-money from the 20-lakh-odd Malayalis working in the Gulf, which has somewhat changed its landscape.
This book on Kerala and Lakshadweep is the 8th in the series ‘A Vision of India’. Supported by colourful illustrations, the simple text will help you to discover the endless charm of Kerala and Lakshadweep.
