Culture - Kerala



Culture is the spontaneous outburst of happiness, excitement and contentment of life. The culture is the celebration of life, the way how people live their life happily with the resources and conveniences that the region provides. The combination of climate, nature, food production, health and happiness ascertains a culture thus the culture resembles the very life style of the people of the particular region.

Even the food dishes one eats and one’s traditional attire is the resemblance of his/her culture. Once a dominant culture, a way of live, is established all the traditions, rituals, festivals, flock dance forms, flock songs, food dishes, life style would automatically fall in line with the culture thus everything got automatically influenced by the culture. The culture becomes the way of live and the way one lives his/her life becomes his culture.     

Perhaps no other region in the whole world would not have been so blessed with natural splendor, waterfalls, rivers and soothing climate that of Kerala. As the geographical territory of this state, better known as a truly God’s Own Country, is always vibrant and colourful so as its very culture thus it makes Kerala – an abode of Ayurveda.

The very culture of Kerala is deeply resembled through its ethnicity, religious harmony, rituals, festivals, dance forms and the language; these aspects make Kerala one of the most-sought-after tourist destinations. The highest rate of literacy and a variety range of spices really spice up the whole region. 

Kerala is such a harmonious place to be, the enchanting landscape and agrarian society, nature loving and eco friendly people of the land keep the culture preserved and handed over the culture to the next generation. The rituals, festivals and traditions keep the culture preserved and all these play as an agent of culture and keep culture alive in the value declined society.

The factors that make a culture dominant are the traditions, rituals, flock dance, flock songs, festivals, dance forms, food dishes and the language. The dance forms such as Kathakali, Theyyam, Thullal, Koodiyattam and Kaikottikali resemble the culture of the state and these forms keep the state lively and welcoming.
