In the nuances to Tour Kerala did you ever realize that the smallest state in India has the most soothing effect as it looks like mother earth has rendered the best of her in this place and has retired to eternity in the lush green place and hence maybe rightly called as ‘God’s own country’. And the real joy to Tour Kerala comes from the acquaintance of encountering the facts of its past.
Kerala is a distinct region separated from the adjoining states of India by the Western Ghats and mountains which run parallel to the sea for about 85 miles along the shores of the Arabian Sea. While Kerala has the densest population in India it has a literacy rate of almost 100%.
The recent history of Kerala includes the prelude to independence, the road to Communism and the evolution of the modern state of Kerala. Kerala was formed out of three political units- the princely state of Cochin, which dates back to the middle ages, the kingdom of Travancore, which was created in the 18th century, and the Malabar district which was the former Kingdom of the Zamorin of Calicut. Among the modern line of traders - the Portuguese, Dutch, French and the English, it was the English that presided over the fate of Kerala from 1791, to the end of British rule in 1947. During the first eighty years of British rule life changed very little. Caste structure and the matrilineal joint family systems continued in the three units that were to become Kerala. By the end of the eighteenth century, tea and coffee plantations developed. An industrial revolution began in the 1850s - textiles, tiles, coir etc. Modern education took root. The influx of missionaries contributed to western education. Democratic institutions were formed in 1888, and political activity which began during the following decade, intensified during the 1920s when the Indian National congress spearheaded the national independence movement. This was a period when the communist movement gathered momentum especially in Malabar.
Post independence Kerala is one of the most advanced states in India in the fields of education, transportation, communication and health care delivery. Most of the advancement since independence has come in the field of education. Industrial development has lagged behind some other centers in India due to labor unrest, lack of power resources and government ineptitude.
Vast pools of highly trained technical people from Kerala are serving elsewhere in India or overseas. Profound economic changes are taking place in India and there is no doubt Kerala too is very eager to be part of that development with major initiatives in a variety of fields such as airports, electronics and power development. This is Tour Kerala at a glance.
