KERALYEEM – GOD’S OWN COUNTRY IN FESTIVE MOODS 

The concept of KERALYEEM is being described as a sole, unique and unifying feeling among Keralites around the world, fostering a sense of oneness and connection with people from all walks of life. This sentiment of unity and solidarity is often found in communities that share a common cultural or regional identity. Cultural and regional identities can play a significant role in shaping one’s sense of belonging and can serve as a source of pride and unity for people from a particular region or background. It’s not uncommon for individuals from the same region or culture to feel a strong bond with each other, even when living in different parts of the world. This sense of oneness and shared identity can be a powerful force for building connections and support networks, celebrating cultural heritage, and promoting unity among people of a specific background.
