Kerala is a small state on the western coast of India lying between the Arabian sea and the Western Ghat mountains. It receives plentiful rainfall and was once covered with tropical evergreen forests. It has plenty of water bodies and once had many lakes and ponds everywhere.

This state is now facing serious environmental problems, mainly caused by “development” that ignored the consequences on nature. But, in addition, it is also facing the consequences of global warming which could destroy life in the state in the coming decades. But, the people and the state and national governments seem to be oblivious to the impending disaster. This blog is a small attempt to draw the attention of everyone to this serious matter that could destroy the state.
