Modern Kerala - Traditional Yet Progressive:
Kerala boasts of a rich tradition and a deep historical background. People from far off lands have found their way to Kerala since ancient times. The coast was familiar country to the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Arabs and the Chinese long before Vasco da Gamma arrived in 1498 A.D. In fact, legend has it that Christianity was brought here by St. Thomas, the apostle himself. . However, inspite of the deep and lasting impressions left by all the settlers, the original inhabitants never surrendered their individual identity or passionate awareness of their own culture.
The traditional culture finds its biggest manifestation in the performing and visual arts, which play an important part in Kerala's life. A unique and spectacular dance form is Kathakali, a masked dance drama. There is the highly classical art of Koodiyattom, the lyrically sensuous dance of the enchantress-Mohiniattam, the religious fervour of Krishnattom and the Kalaripayatu - the martial art form from which Karate originated.

The Mt. Everest of Social development.
“ Kerala is a bizarre anomaly among developing nations, a place that offers real hope for the future of the third world. Consider: this small state in India, though not much larger than maryland, has a population as big as California’s and per capita annual income of less than $300. But its infant mortality rate is low, its literacy rate among the highest on Earth and birth rate below America’s and falling faster. Kerala’s citizens live nearly as long as Americans or Europeans. Though mostly a land of paddy-covered plains, statistically Kerala stands out as the Mount Everest of Social Development..”
