INDIA, KERALA : ON THE PATH TO GOD'S COUNTRY
The many routes of civilizations
An episode from the series THE PATH OF MEN
Kerala, a small state located in the south of India, is a place like no other. A land of tolerance where all religions live side by side. A land of history where Chinese, Arabs, Dutch, English and French have followed one another. A land of trade since antiquity where the best spices in the world are produced. An agricultural land with dense tropical forests and rich in exceptional biodiversity. A land of culture and a sanctuary for India's living traditions.
Kerala is prosperous, rich and peaceful. It boasts 100% literacy, near perfect parity and an ancestral ecological commitment. It could genuinely be called the "Land of God".
To understand the reasons for this nickname which carries many promises, we meet the men and women who inhabit this blessed land.
