Jane Austen wrote, ‘To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment,’ and Kerala is one such destination that not only rejuvenates but in a way cleanses one’s body, mind and soul. Home to age-old science of ayurveda; energetic and vibrant dance forms; ever-so scenic backwaters; aromatic spices; pristine beaches; opulent wildlife; flavoursome food; scintillating rivers; and rich history, the southern state of Kerala is a destination in India that truly makes it feel proud.
