 Destination

OOTY
Century-old English architecture, a rich yet equally confusing Anglican tradition, gabled cottages set in the midst of mystifying blue hills, Ooty is perhaps the only hill station that has refused to keep fair-weather friends. So much so, at some point, it was called 'Snooty Ooty' even by the early Madras government, for its notorious snobbishness set it apart from the rest of Tamil Nadu. Steadfast in guarding its warbled British, Anglo-Indian, and native heritage, yet giving in to commercialization, little by little, it still manages to lure those in need of rest and relaxation without much trouble.

Undeniably charming, Ooty is one of the few places in India where you can feel the aura of the British Raj still envelop you. English is almost a native tongue here, and heritage gems are scattered all over town. Walk the length of Commercial Road, spend a day strolling by the misty Ooty Lake, or gorge on some hot Bondas and a cup of Cardamom Tea from a tea stall. It is hard not to fall in love with its temperament. Calm, cool and collected are not just code-words here, but a way of life.

Soak in the beauty of the hills from the toy train (the Nilgiri Mountain Railway) as it chugs along the hillside just as it did hundreds of years ago, ever so often stopping for no rhyme or reason. Get a snapshot of the 20 million year old fossil tree stump at the Botanical Gardens where it is overshadowed by a thousand other rare plants. Sink into the crumbling, torn seat at the Assembly Rooms theatre and watch a movie that probably released years ago. Lick on a puffy pink swirl of cotton candy as you skim through second hand book stalls that still sell obsolete prints. Taste Anglo-Indian delights at the stately British Fern Hills Palace, the former summer retreat of the Mysore Maharaja and let the sounds of the piano gently lull you to sleep soon after.

Run across the untouched wilderness of Avalanche Reservoir, and try your hand at Trout fishing in the ramshackle Wilson Fish Farm nearby. Squint and swipe with your lucky hand at the 100 year old Ootacamund Golf Course or mumble a prayer at the century-old St. Stephen's Church as the last rays of sun illuminate the altar through beautifully glass-painted windows. Enjoy a late evening walk as the last strains of the choir waft in the breeze onto town. There is simply no denying that Ooty remains regal, ravishing and royal no matter when you visit.

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
South India is the area encompassing India's states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu as well as the union territories of Lakshadweep and Pondicherry, occupying 19.31% of India's area. The region is also known as Dravida as is used in the National anthem. South India lies in the peninsular Deccan Plateau and is bounded by the Arabian Sea in the west, the Indian Ocean in the south and the Bay of Bengal in the east. The geography of the region is diverse, encompassing two mountain ranges, the Western and Eastern Ghats, and a plateau heartland. The Godavari, Krishna, Tungabhadra and Kaveri rivers are important non-perennial sources of water.
A majority of Indians from the southern region speak one of the Dravidian languages: Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Tulu, and Kodava. During its history, a number of dynastic kingdoms ruled over parts of South India whose invasions across southern and southeastern Asia impacted the history and cultures of modern sovereign states such as Sri Lanka, Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia.
While South Indian states have improved in some socio-economic metrics, economic disparity, illiteracy and poverty continue to affect the region much like the rest of the country. Agriculture is the single largest contributor to the regional net domestic product, while Information technology is a rapidly growing industry. Literary and architectural styles, evolved over two thousand years, differ from other parts of the country.

RELIGION:
South India boasts such a full and flavorsome diversity of landscapes, culture and history it leaves, most countries seeming bland and uninteresting by comparison. In the southeastern corner, the hot, dusty plains of Tamil Nadu are scattered with emerald green paddy fields and teeming with life.
This landscape, rich in history, is the centre of Tamil culture and full of temples with their towering, ornately ornamented gopurams or gateways.
From the east, the once thickly forested high slopes, in places long since cleared the tea, rubber or coffee, run down through a series o hill ranges to the narrow coastal strips of western India, with its fertile luxuriance of flora.
Across lowland Kerala the towering Coconut palms cover what seems to be one mammoth village, without beginning or end. From Kerala to Goa and beyond, a string of little ports still witness to the vibrant to the vibrant trade, which has linked southern India with the world to the west across the Arabian Sea. Arab traders have brought both their trade goods and their cultures to the west coast towns, while in Goa, countless white painted churches which were built in the heart of the old Portuguese Territories have given their wholly distinctive feature to another of South India’s cultural enclaves.
