Kerala is small state. It is blessed with mountains, forests, rivers and lakes. These gave it a very beautiful scenario attracting tourists from different parts of the world. Enjoyed with all these certain tourists started to refer the state as God's own country. That got established soon. The then State Government included this in the Tourism department's advertisements. Thus everybody started to use this when referring to Kerala.
From this it is clear that it is the Nature which is playing the role of God. And here the selfish people are destroying the Nature neglecting the importance of it. Destroying forests, hills, rivers, paddy fields, and other natural surroundings, has resulted in this calamity. Hence the Nature has reacted to man's selfishness.
