Kerala is strategically located right in the middle of the travel-trade corridor connecting Europe to the Pacific Rim, at the south-western tip of India.  Sandwiched between the Arabian Sea and the forested western ghat mountains, the state of Kerala is blessed with unique geographical and cultural features.  Its overpowering tropical greenery with forty one rivers and countless waterways, fed by two annual monsoons, intoxicates every visitor
Apart from being one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia, Kerala can claim some of the most startlingly radical credentials in India.  Like being India's only 100% literate state.  Having India's largest concentration of Science and Technology personnel.   India's highest life expectancy.  India's lowest infant mortality, India's most balance mix of Hindus, Muslims & Christians.  India's cleanest, most peaceful, pollution free State, India's highest Physical Quality of Life Index, India's most advanced society
" This small state in India has a population as big as California (USA)  and a per capita annual income of less than US$ 300.  But its infant mortality rate is low, its literacy rate among the highest on Earth, and its birthrate below America's and falling faster.  Kerala's citizens live nearly as long as Americans and Europeans.  Though mostly a land of paddy-covered plains, statistically Kerela stands out as the Mount Everest of social development; there's truly no place it on the planet earth.
