South India Culture

South India Culture

My experience with community events, fairs, and the like, was little, to none. Though I was and I am a fun loving person, buy my inclination is more towards adventure sports rather art & culture. Thoughts get shaped with time. Tastes get changed with time. The story starts with my tour to south India along with my family during summer vacations.

We explored a number of destinations in states like Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Pondicherry. That was an exciting trip and I surrendered my soul to south India attractions. Ranging from enchanting wildlife to serene backwaters and thrilling adventure sports to holy pilgrimages – every bit of that entire belt was incomparable. But what stole my heart was south India culture.

For instance, when it comes to the food – rice is a main dish that can be relished with coconut chutney, pickles, aromatic curries and sambhar. Though people are crazy for spicy sea food as well, but main food items are less spicy that do not harm your stomach.

Coming to music, the sophisticated Indian classical music of South India is called Carnatic music that is linked with various wooden instruments. These musical instruments are enjoyed with various dance forms of South India, like as Koodiyattam, Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, Kathakali, Theyyam, Ottamthullal, Oppana, Kerala Natanam, Mohiniaattam and Yakshagana. The people are humble and helping here. All these qualities make it fascinating and a crowd puller tourist belt.

I spent my most time in Kerala and enjoyed various rejuvenating Ayurvedic therapies in beach resorts. People in south India are addicted to festivities and celebrations. The age old culture of this region is so impressive that millions of tourists from all over the world flock here to spend their holidays.
