Kerala is located on the south-western region of India.It is by Karnataka to the north, Tamil Nadu to the south and the east and the Lakshadweep Sea towards the west. On the southwestern coast of India, almost affecting the tip of the peninsula, Kerala inhabites the region known as the Malabar Coast. It is surrounded by the south Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Kerala is like a narrow strip of land lying between the Arabian Sea to the west and the hill ranges called Western Ghats. This geography defines Kerala's main identity as a green, rain-rich state filled with inland water bodies.
The rain-laden southwest monsoon comes across the Arabian Sea to hit Kerala around 1st June, and expends much of its waters here. More than 40 rivers flow down the Western Ghats to meet the Arabian Sea forming, with the backwash of the sea, a complex of canals and lakes called the Kerala Backwaters. This combined package of beaches, backwaters and greenery is what the tourism department promotes as 'Gods Own Country', making tourism one of Kerala's main businesses.
 
   
   
 
Goa is a tropical glen haven on the Konkan coast, along the Arabian Sea. Goa promises lots of Sun, sand and gaiety. This small state sandwiched between Maharashtra and Karnataka is quite distinct from the rest of India. The name ‘Goa’ is derived from the Konkani word 'Goyan', which means a patch of tall grass. This former Portuguese enclave has been a favourite with tourists. Goa's history stretches back to the 3rd century BC when it formed a part of the Mauryan empire. Later ruled by the Satavahanas of Kolhapur and then by the Chalukyas of Badami until the Vijayanagar Empire established itself for almost a century.
Then came the Sultans of Gulbarga, around 1469 AD, from whom the rule passed on to Adil Shah of Bijapur. At the dawn of colonialism, Goa became the bone of contention between the Dutch, English, French and Portuguese. Ultimately, in 1510, the Portuguese conquered Goa. After ruling for about four centuries, in 1961, fourteen years after India's independence, the Portuguese left the subcontinent but left a lasting effect on the culture of the land.
 
   
   
 
Rajasthan literally means the land of Kings and Warriorsand is India at its exotic and colourful best with its palaces of breathtaking grandeur, battle scarred forts of whimsical charm, its riotous colours and even its romantic sense of pride and honour. The State is diagonally divided into the hilly and rugged south-eastern region and the barren north-western Thar Desert, which extends across the border into Pakistan.This arid and sand bown western frontier of India is strewn with forts, palaces and temples done in sandstone, marble and other materials. All of these have fine carvings on the majestic façade, the palaces and temples have intricate filigreed work and some of the palaces were originally adorned with precious and semiprecious stones.
The State is the home of the Rajputs, a group of warrior clans who have controlled this part of India for 1000 years following a code of chivalry and honour akin to that of medieval European knights. While temporary alliances and marriages of convenience were the order of the day, pride and independence were always paramount. The Rajputs were therefore, never able to present a united front against a common aggressor. Much of their energy was spent squabbling amongst themselves and the resultant weakness eventually led to their becoming vassal states of the Mughal Empire. Nevertheless, their bravery and sense of honour remains unparalleled.
