Kerala is different from the rest of the India in many ways.
History was created in 1957 when Kerala became the first state in the world to democratically elect a Marxist government. It has the highest literacy rate in the country, lowest infant mortality rate and the highest female to male population ratio.
In fact, Kerala has the highest physical Quality of Life Index too.
Kerala is a state tucked away in the southwest corner of India.
The state is often referred as "God's Own Country".
The Western Ghats have an average height of 4920 ft (1,500 m) above sea level, with highest peaks that reach around 8200 ft (2,500 m). The districts of Kerala are Alappuzha, Ernakulam, Idukki, Kannur, Kasaragod, Kollam, Kottayam, Kozhikode, Malappuram, Palakkad, Pathanamthitta, Thiruvananthapuram, Thrissur and Wayanad.
The coastal belt is comparatively flat and is crisscrossed by an interconnected network of canals, estuaries, lakes and rivers which are collectively known as the Kerala Backwaters. The districts are further subdivided into 75 taluks, which are further divided into 1453 revenue villages.
Rice is the most important cereal crop and staple food in Kerala.
