While it is not proven that celestial maneuvering was involved, Kerala is decidedly, a land blessed-resplendent with painterly landscapes, rivers and waterways, the sea and mountains; an opulence that also subsumes a rather large quotient of creatively inclined and intellectually vibrant people.
No surprise then, that Keralites epitomise [ as do Bengalis] Amartya Sen's discourse on the "argumentative Indian". Not surprising too, that the ideals of Communism should inspire and flourish in their veins. Communism had incubated in secrecy until a December day in 1937,when it was born. Within 18 years, a Left government was to be elected democratically for the first time in world history, with a new approach to land reforms, labour relations, education, development, decentralization, minority rights and other matters of socialistic concern.
