Grand Kerala Shopping Festival 2012 /12/15

"Over the years, Grand Kerala Shopping Festival (GKSF) has become yet another reason for travelers to visit Kerala. This annual event takes place at a time when Kerala goes through its peak tourism season. In a way, it is a double bonanza, especially for the visitors, who could enjoy the shopping festival as much as the delightful experiences of traveling in Kerala. For the visitors, GKSF is a big opportunity to explore and buy an array of traditional products of Kerala. Let us together make the sixth edition of GKSF a grand success."[Secretary, kerala tourism]

 "Kerala has made its mark as a well-known travel destination in the world. And we are now witnessing another phenomenon that is fast transforming Kerala into a shopper's destination. Grand Kerala Shopping Festival (GKSF) has become an event that is charting a new course for Kerala, since its launch in 2007. Looking forward to yet another successful edition of the event, I hope that travelers as well as the local people would have a great time during the sixth edition of GKSF, beginning in December 2012." [Minister of tourism, govt. of kerala]

Vasudevam: Relax, Rejuvinate, Realize !!

Their mission:

"Provide guests a safe and hygienic stay experience along with traditional Travancore cuisine and hospitality."
Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam ("vasudha", the earth; "eva", emphasizer and "kutumbakam", family) is a Sanskrit phrase that means that the whole world is one single family. Vasudevam, situated in an exotic locale in Thiruvananthapuram referred to by Mahatma Gandhi as the "Evergreen city of India” has really imbibed this saying and have opened apartments to travelers from far and wide, extending them a hearty and warm welcome.

Being the capital of Kerala, often known as "God's own country", Thiruvananthapuram is also called as "God's own capital". The name literally splits into "Tiru","Anantha""puram" meaning "the town of Lord ANANTHA". This is really true since the temple is at the heart of the town and for generations, the kings have called themselves "Padmanabha-Dasa" or the "servants of Lord Ananthapadmanabha", and ruled the state as the representatives of Lord Anantha-Padmanabha. The cultural background of Thiruvananthapuram originates from the efforts of the rulers of erstwhile Travancore, who took an active interest in the development of arts and culture. Thiruvananthapuram has produced several great artists, the most famous ones being Maharaja Swathi Thirunal, Irayimman Thampi and Raja Ravi Varma. for more information click here

Silent Valley National Park !!

Bio geographically, "Silent Valley" and the adjacent forests of the Western Ghats represent “ecological islands” in which it is possible to observe the conditions that prevailed before modifications set in, in the humid tropical forests of peninsular India. Though the stability of these ecological islands is fast dwindling, these ecological products introduce an important factor in the bio geographical evolution, viz. isolation mostly due to physical barriers as a result of the Palakkad gap. Isolation, therefore, has had the effect of preserving the relict characters of the flora and fauna of Silent Valley and adjacent areas, as indicated by the presence of primitive groups of flora and fauna. The distribution range of these relict species had been considerably restricted, presenting an apparent picture of endemism. The intermingling of Indo-Malayan elements in the flora and fauna of the area is due to preservation of the once extensive tropical forests, which extended over the whole of the Peninsula. The concentration and isolation of these elements only in some areas of the Ghats, present precarious picture of survival of relicts of an otherwise impoverished flora and fauna.

Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary !!



Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary is the most protected ecological piece of Anamalai sub unit of Western Ghats, surrounded on all sides by protected areas and sanctuaries of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the sanctuary is endowed with a peninsular flora and fauna which are excellently conserved due to total protection and minimal human interferences. The sanctuary being a major ecological continuum from Peechhi to Eravikulam through Anamalai aids the large viable populations of wildlife.

Thus it is popularly revered as ‘Nature’s own abode’. It has a total area of 285 Sq. Kms. for more click here

Future of farming in kerala !! (Kerala Agriculture)

Kerala, since its formation is earmarked as a food deficit stateproducing only 50% of its requirements of rice. Several rain packed monsoons though has blessed the state the rice culture in Kerala is seen dwindling year after year. The area now is less than 2.6lakhs hectors while the production is just six lakhs tones. Trade records reveal that
the state is producing only 15-20% of the rice required. When rice fields disappearour enchanting greenery is replaced by very ugly grey spots. The shining green
leaves and golden coloured earheads which dance to the tune of breeze is slowly disappearing from our rural life. A close examination of the situation reveals that the main reason for deserting the rice culture was the availability of quality rice in plenty in markets after the success of green revolution especially after 1977. It created a situation making
rice culture an unprofitable enterpris. The rise in the cost of production due to paucity of labour, huge wages, high cost of inputs, a rice culture slowly became a huge loss making job in the rural area,
which forced the farmers to gradually look out for more profit generating crops. This led to the expansion of cash crops like banana, rubber, spices and even
vegetables. Good price and generous assistance extended by the government motivated farmers give priority to cultivate cash crops ignoring rice, tapioca and even pulses. The attitude of the farmers slowly changed from producing rice to the promotion of the crops which give then better profit for a comparatively lesser quantum of job and attention. In this process another  crop which lost its glory
is coconut. The fall in the price of
coconut, import of cheap vegetable oils etc lead to a condition which made coconut farming also an unprofitable enterprise. Various new efforts like popularization of tender coconut, andproduction of value added products are expected to generate a new wave of enthusiasm for farm families for investing better care to the "tree of heaven". All problems especially emerging in the farmsector require quick solutions as thedelay will worsen the availability of farm produce which is a must to keep the hunger and poverty away.Farming and farm families require arefreshing new wave of modernization.It is required not only to preserve our
greenery without creating environmental hazards but also to attract the youth to the charming world of farming. Technology has made tremendous progress and the life style of the masses is changing fast. In this context unless farming is made more profit generating and a profession that make modern lifestyle, livelihood security, and above all social recognition the younger generation will not come towards this occupation. Another change is that the families will not allow this generation to take up the farming as an occupation since they themselves are not happy with their lifelong association with agriculture.The new steps introduced for providing pension for farmers, insurance cover for crops and domestic animals, modernization of farming, introduction of hitech farming, large scale mechanization, improving marketing structure, export promotion etc are steps in the right direction and need wider support from people belonging to all walk of life.
Paucity of funds for farm development schemes has become a story of the past. The allotment for
agriculture programs has been doubled in the stage budgets and central schemes are providing a challenge to the capacity of the state to collect and spend more money in the agriculture sector through commodity boards, horticulture mission and University. The real need of the hour is generating programs and implementing the same in a more farmer friendly manner recognizing the fact that the peasant is the real link between the soil and crop generation exercise. Stimulating his efforts and providing him modern livelihood security, social recognition and above all faith is sure to make Kerala a Holy land of green prosperity. for more regional language agriculture news, kerala agri sites available in this blog

Kerala house boat tourism - Alappuzha


Kettuvallam or Kerala house boats are country boats that were used in the early days for the transport of goods from the isolated interior village to the towns. With the advent of roads, bridges and ferry services, gradually  the Kettuvallam went off the scene, Now the Kettuvalloms are back again as a major tourist attraction. A ride on a Kettuvallam is a fabulous way to explore the fascinating  beauty of the backwaters.
House boat cruise in Alleppey backwaters will be memorable with the mind blowing view of Canal systems and endless lagoons, Paddy fields, rivers joining the backwaters, small houses on small stretch of land.  There are villages in all over these backwaters but the land area is very small. for more details click here

YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE INDIAN ECONOMY BY FOLLOWING FEW SIMPLE STEPS:-


Dear All,                    (READ Complete post,; even if you don’t have time)

Before 12 months 1 US $ = IND Rs 39
After 12 months, now 1 $ = IND Rs 50

Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down.

More than 30,000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned
out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea,
beverages, etc... which are grown, produced and consumed here.

A cold drink that costs only 6-10 Rupees to produce, is sold for
Rs.30-40 and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This
is a serious drain on INDIAN economy. We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our  own interest we request everybody to use INDIAN products only atleast
for the next two years. With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not
do this, the Rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much
more for the same products in the near future.

What you can do about it?

1. Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.
2. ENROLL as many people as possible for this cause.....

Each individual should become a leader for this awareness. This is the
only way to save our country from severe economic crisis. You don't
need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate
product.

All categories of products are available from WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.

THEY DIED PAINFULLY TO ENSURE THAT WE LIVE PEACEFULLY. THE CURRENT
TREND IS VERY THREATENING.


MULTINATIONALS CALL IT GLOBALIZATION OF INDIAN ECONOMY. FOR INDIANS
LIKE YOU AND ME, IT IS RE-COLONIZATION OF INDIA. THE COLONIST'S LEFT
INDIA THEN. BUT THIS TIME, THEY WILL MAKE SURE THEY DON'T MAKE ANY
MISTAKES.

WHO WOULD LIKE TO LET A "GOOSE THAT LAYS GOLDEN EGGS" SLIP AWAY?

Now birth death certificates just a click away !

Birth, death and marriage certificates issued by local bodies are now just a click away. Information Kerala Mission (IKM) has uploaded details of all the certificates registered since 2000 which can be downloaded from the IKM website. The print-out of the certificate down loaded from the website is authentic as it carries a watermark of the Kerala Government. Around 80 per cent of the local bodies had registered the details of the certificates. Steps have been taken for establishing broadband connection at all the local bodies, he said. “Around 450 to 500 local bodies have been provided with broadband network. After completing the web connection, the certificates can be downloaded as soon as the data is entered,’’ Shamsuddin said. IKM is in the process of completing computerisation of 978
grama panchayats, 60 municipalities, 14 district panchayats
and 152 block panchayats. It is hoped that all the panchayats
would go online within five months. This system helps the public in ensuring that the data entered in the system are correct. Any correction in the certificate can be carried out by approaching the local bodies with relevant documents.
