I spend a lot of my teenage years in Kerala.The backwaters and landscaping are exotic. I loved the different varieties of hibiscus and the pink and the white Mussanda. I loved the smell of the jackfruit trees. We would smell the pepper trees on our way to school. "Certainly Gods Own Country".
The keralites are very simple and educated. When we driving past we would have to wait for groups of school children to cross over. Dignity of labour is very important in kerala. My driver who drove my car had more money and property than me and worked merely for Dignity of Labour. Women and men of Kerala even don't mind commuting 2 to 3 hours to work to hold their job. Keralite women are beautiful with their long dark tresses and love to wear a lot of jewellery.
Most of all the secret behind the Women clad in the Mundu. Society is matriarchal, with women inheriting the property.
