Kerala is a state in India that stands out from the rest due to its unique geography, climate, culture, and cuisine. It is blessed with 44 rivers and the imposing Western Ghats, making it a must-see destination for centuries. The food in Kerala has more distinctive flavors compared to other states, and the language is completely unique. People in Kerala are more relaxed and have their own alcohol.
Following the State Reorganization Act of 1956, the current state of Kerala was formed through the merger of the Malabar district of the state of Madras, the Kasaragod taluk in southern Canada, and the former state of Thiru-Kochi. This gave economic and social freedom to the majority and allowed Kerala to concentrate on other areas of development. Kerala's birds include the Malabar trogon, the Great Hornbill, the laughing thrush from Kerala, the dart and the myna of the southern hills. The inhibitions caused by a series of wars between Chera-Chola in the 11th century led to a decline in foreign trade in Kerala's ports.
In the forests, there are over 1000 species of trees including Sonokeling, Dalbergia latifolia, Anjili, Mullumurikku, Erythrina and Cassia. The Malabar region in northern Kerala was part of Madras province during British India and later became part of Madras after independence. Islam came to Kerala through spice and silk merchants from the Middle East. Kerala cuisine includes a wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes prepared with fish, poultry and meat.
In the 15th century, Portuguese merchants were attracted to Kerala due to its spice trade which eventually led to European colonization of India. Keralites are stereotyped as an educated family with lots of relatives in the Middle East and abroad. The corporation is divided into three zones (north, center and south) with headquarters in Thiruvananthapuram (the capital of Kerala). The cold factor in Kerala is due to its climate and natural beauty which makes it difficult to feel bitter in such a beautiful place.
Despite being a major state with less influence on India's general politics, Kerala stands out from other Indian states due to its unique geography, climate, culture, and cuisine.
