Apart from Mythologies and all Kerala has got emerged as a state on November 1st, 1956. Today we are celebrating Kerala’s 64th birthday.
Kerala was three independent provinces before becoming a state.
Malabar, Cochin & Travancore are the three independent provinces and ruled by the Kings.
After independence, on July 1st, 1949 Both Travancore & Cochin kingdoms merged and formed Travancore-Cochin and recognized as a state on January 1st, 1950.
After nine years from independence, All those provinces merged and formed Kerala State by the ‘State Reorganising Act’.
That put an end to the Monarchy. In the year of 1957, elections for the first & new Kerala Legislative Assembly held, thus paved the way to Governance of Ministers.
