Kerala is one of the rare states in the south Asian country India, which has highest living, health and educational standards, one of the reasons that is mainly attributed to its expatriate community. The southern tip of India has been open to foreign cultures and it’s sea ports acted as routes for Arab and European traders. Kerala has the highest rate of literacy among Indian states. Keralites form the biggest expatriate Indian community in Arab countries.
Many Keralites have found successful jobs in their career and set businesses in Gulf countries for many decades.
