“KERALA - Why its called God's Own Country?
God's own country? How Kerala got the name? Kerala located in South india in an extra ordinary land with almost all elements of nature. Kerala is the 100% literate state in India is also famous for tour and tourism. Poets wrote poems about this state and many writers find hard to express the full beauty of this place.Nestled between the pristine waters of the Arabian sea on the west and the lush Western Ghat mountains on the east, its intense network of rivers and lagoons, thick forests, exotic wildlife, tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters and a long shoreline of serene beaches make it a traveler's paradise. God's own country! Paradise !!! The rich cultural heritage , the dance form and the essence of music are so impressive that the tourist will be spell bound by this magic features of kerala. The literary meaning of Kerala is "the land of coconuts". "Kera" in Malayalam (the language of Kerala) means coconut. As Kerala is abundant with coconut plants, it naturally got the name Kerala. In Kerala, you can find Coconut trees everywhere. The state has such wonderful and magnificent attractions beyond one's imagination.
Still we have not covered our core point or the question: How Kerala got that magical tagline "The God's own country"? In fact even many of the Malayalees, the son of the soil, don't know how it got that attractive tag-God's own country
it was created by one Mr Walter Mendez, who was also the Creative Director of a reputed Ad agency in India. The creation took birth in the year 1989. Sadly, the man is no more now as he died some 10 years ago. Walter coined the tag on the request of Kerala Tourism Department when the Kerala government wished to market Kerala's high tourism potentialities before the travel world. The phrase "God's own country" did wonders. Also it had a magical impact. The tourists changed their travel plans and made Kerala their preferred destination when they noticed the ads in tourism magazines and other periodicals. They longed to experience and feel the luxury of "God's own country". As the tag was so catchy, the travel folks easily developed a love to see the land. And they were never disappointed while returning.
Every nook and corner in Kerala you will see Hindu temples, Muslim mosques and Christian Churches; and unlike many other parts of India, people live happily without communal riots and great religious tolerance. Hence it is God's own country full of worship places!
