What is so special about our God's Own Country?If there is one region I admire most in India, it is Kerala. Look at the 100% literacy. Look at how the Mallus ( as they call themselves) are so neat, keep their surroundings also clean, and go to any corner of the world, to not only survive and grow but also to make a deep impression.

Years ago, I visited the home of our former Executive Director at a place called Angamali, which is near the Cochin International Airport. The area looks like Kashmir, so seat, so beautiful and so superbly maintained. Right in front of a huge hall, there was enough space on the roof for a thief to conveniently enter the building. When quizzed, the gentleman, merely replied that he had provisions for rainwater harvesting!! He also said that his brother was the police chief of the area, and no thief dare enter their house. The mansion was also superbly maintained with the finest gardens.
What is so special about God's own country? How is that everything is so beautiful, there is so much of nature, and places like Munnar keep the tourist traffic going and thriving?
