Northern Kerala, famously known as Malabar is rich for its rituals, myths, lore, legends, martial artists and the historically famous dhows. It was the gateway of ancient India. Merchants from all over the world came to India through this gate. This book deeply engages with the real stories from the history – the stories of royal families of Zamorins, Kolathiris, Arakkal and many others, the stories of European, German, Dutch, French and English invasions, the stories of the local heroes like Aromal Chekavar, Unniyarcha, Thacholi Othenan, Kunjali Marakkars, Manakkadan Gurukkal, Mathileri Kanni, the literary giant Kunchan Nambiar and many more. It also unfolds the colorful culture of Malabar through its mythical stories of Odiyans and Bhagavathis, many forms of Theyyam – the ecstatic god-dance and the famous temples of the area. This book is a romance, celebrating the tales of heroic men and women, some of whom were divine and conveying the beauty of an ancient society that had a code of life.
