Kerala Modal is a much discussed term not only in India but all over the world. It was because the kerala model of development was really a surprising factror for the western world as with one by eithtyeth percapita income of the america, the kerala achieved the standard of living equal to or more than to the standard of living of the developed countries. The literacy rate, the health facilities, the maternal mortality rate, the child sex ratio, the child mortality rate, old-age care and the care of the destitutes, all have equal standard with the developed nations. one more thing was that the savings from the income was higher in kerala. Now we could think about why the other parts of the india did not achieve this development? As in other parts of the country, similar situations of caste dicriminations,un touchability, backwardness of the communities and other social evils were prevalent in Kerala with ample strength. However, Kerala move forward in the case of development leaving behind other states many miles.
Gurudevan ignited the boom for development thinking among the keralites irrespective of the caste and religious boundaries as the SNDP yogam was established in 1903 for the upliftment of the ezhavas on these lines many other organizations in other communities started working. Gurus aruvippuram prathishta in 1888 and the subsequent developments really have generated a fertile ground for developmental thoughts.
