Photo Essay: Portraying the Real Life In Kerala

Kerala even though is a very small state in India, it is rich in its cultural diversity. You will find followers of almost all the major world religions here. This completely reflects in Kerala culture and traditions.

The hush and rush of city-life interspersed with calm and quiet villages – that is what you can expect in Kerala.

Yes, there is poverty, there are slum areas…but then, it is part of India, one of the most populated countries of the world. I have heard many travelers yearning to experience the adrenaline rush that they feel while traveling through the diverse India. Kerala is diverse in its own way!

Through this post, I like to portray the real Kerala through the eyes of prominent and amateur photographers.
