Malayalees-came from the southernmost state of India, Kerala. Kerala state also known as “God’s own country” because of the stunning landscape of green paddy field, tall coconut trees, clean backwaters, rivers and green forests throughout the state. Our native language is “Malayalam” and so the name “Malayalees” or other young Indians call us “Mallus”. Our state produces several types of spices – Black pepper, Ginger, Cardamom, Turmeric, etc. From ancient time onwards, our state has trade routes to Middle East, China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and to even Europe. Other names associated with Kerala state are “ India’s Malabar coast”, and “Land of Adi- Sankara”
