This home is the “Gateway” to my heart. First of all, let me tell you about My INDIA, My Kerala My Palakkad and My Edathanattukara.
My KERALA the “God's Own Country”

The state of Kerala is situated on the western coast in the far south of India. It is a tropical state- green and lush. It has a 550km coast line on the Arabian sea. Its eastern border is formed by the magestic Western Ghats mountain range. Kerala has a diverse landscape ranging from wonderful beaches, soothing backwaters, hill stations and wildlife reserves.
Kerala has India's lowest birthrate, lowest infant mortality, highest marriage age and 100% literacy rate. Kerala's geography combined with its strong culture means that it is a wonderful introduction to India for the first time visitor and offers complete diversity to people who have already visited the north of India.

ThiruvananthapuramThiruvananthapuram is the state capital of kerala. The International airport is situated just 15km away from the city.

My Palakkad

My Mannarkkad
Mannarkkad is a small town in Palakkad district of Kerala state, south India. Silent Valley (a tropical evergreen rain forest with an unbroken evolutionary history of 50 million years) is only 66 km from Mannarkkad.

A rough population estimate is 150,000+. Mannarkkad has an agri-based economy. Main agriculture produce consists of natural rubber, coconut, areca nut, banana, plantain, nutmeg, pepper and rice. Due to inordinate use of chemicals, the natural ecosystem was adversely affected. But over a decade or control, has revived many almost extinct natural species of reptile, butter flies, fresh water fish and other organisms.
70%-80% of the agri-income is earned by 20%-25% of the population. Of the rest, 10% are into trading and the remaining 65% of the total population are below slightly above of below the poverty line. Quite a few people were involved in illegal logging and marijuana farming in the nearby western ghats. The promise of quick money drove the menfolk to abandon traditional professions and agriculture for smuggling snadal wood and marijuana. Social problems have forced many women to take up menial jobs and tobacco rolling (beedi) to support their families.
Over the past few years charitable organizations and civil societies have stepped in the tackle these problems at the root by providing education and other facilities predominantly aimed towards empowerment of women.

Well, since you have shown interest in knowing about me. I was born in a tiny beautiful village called EDATHANATTUKARA situated in the corner of Valluvanad of Malabar area Mannarkkad Taluk, exactly in between Palakkad and Malappuram districts of Kerala state in south INDIA. A well known village in Malabar because of its natural beauties’ and natural resources hosted several peoples from other areas. It is a greenish nostalgic village .. Sleeping the history of old Naturajas and Natu Pramanees life. Every nook and corner has a sleeping story to narrate about their old life…

Two years after I born my family we moved to Nandini-Bhilai-Madhypradesh. It was a dark days in Kerala with poverty and unemployment issues. My father was doing hotel business there.. Hotel Mubarack Nandini Mines. I spent few years there and returned to our village ..I cannot recall the days but ..It was a sweet and bitter memory in my life. I started my schooling at AMLP (W) Orphanage (Yatheemkhana) then AUPS Nalukandam and GOHS Kottapalla. High School was around 3 KM far from my house even it was far, I used to walk from my home to Scholl from class XII. If comparing about it now, Amazing, I feel great because now a days I am not walking even 3 minutes a day. But loving my Volley ball and spending one and half hors. Now I am stationed in a “LAND OF SAND” that is in Gulf ....Custodian of Two Great Holy places (Makka & Madina) and Oil Giant Country … SAUDI ARABIA… In between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia a place a small city called Al Kahfji. I will write more lately about Expatriate life of a Gulf Life of a poor Indian and my life in Riyadh, Najran, Medina, Yanbu, Jeddah Al Khobar and Al Khafji Where I was spent my life…

My childhood was mostly spend like a grasshopper with lots of kids of my age surrounding area of Edathanattukara known as Chirattakkulam, Yatheemkhana, Nalukandam, Kodiyankunnu, Kottapalla, Vattamannappuram, Velliyancheri, Kappuparambu, Alanallur etc.. It was a great days … Totally enjoyed, I mean maximum utilized natural beauty during my childhood. But now we are enjoying all on PC Monitor or on TV Picture tube.
