Kerala Piravi

 

Kerala Piravi marks the birth of the state of Kerala. The state of Kerala was created on November 1st, 1956. Malayalis from around the world celebrate November 1st as Kerala Piravi, which in Malayalam means the 'Birth of Kerala'.

 

1 November 2010 marks the 54th Anniversary of Kerala Piravi.

 

Kerala Stretch along from Gokarnam to Parasala with Arabian Sea as the border on one side. The other border is the Western Ghats with the rich flora and fauna. According to the Hindu mythology Parasurama, the sixth incarnation of Mahavishnu (The God-Lord), created Kerala. Parasurama flung his "Mazhu" (a weapon) from Kanyakumari (cape comer in) to the sea and the sea receded to create the land Kerala.

 

Earlier, Kerala was made up of three distinct areas. Malabar as far up the coast as Tellicherry, Cannanore and Kasargode with the tiny pocket-handkerchief French possession of Mahe nearby (it was returned to India in the early 1950 's and is now administratively part of Pondicherry). This area belonged to what was once called the Madras Presidency under the British. The middle section is formed by the princely State of Cochin; the third comprises Travancore, another princely State.

 

The modern Kerala is divided into fourteen Districts with Trivandrum as the State Capital. Kerala is the first place in the world where a Communist Ministry came into power by General Election in 1957.

 

 Kerala is truly the undiscovered India. It is God's own country and an enchantingly beautiful, emerald-green sliver of land. It is a tropical paradise far from the tourist trial at the south-western peninsular tip, sandwiched between the tall mountains and the deep sea. Kerala is a long stretch of enchanting greenery. The tall exotic coconut palm dominates the landscape.
