My Home Sweet home at Palakkad...

I am really happy and thankful to god to say that I am born and bought up in such a lovely country(another thanks for Kerala). As every one knows Kerala, the land of rivers and backwaters is a green strip of land, in the South West corner of Indian peninsula. Kerala is a state with full literacy, Higher Health care and lower mortality ratio. In Kerala you experience freshness and touch of mother earth every where. No wonder keralites call their State "God's Own Country".

Please opt a bike ride on a rainy day, this will give a such a thrilling experience, u cannot experience the same if you opt a four wheeler.
