Kerala - A Journey in Time Malabar

As a compilation to rediscover layers of Kerala history, cultural heritage as we aim to bring alive the few stories. From the ancient to the 21st century, the people, places and potpourri that crafted the magnificent mosaic that is our land of Kerala.  

Trials, Triumphs and Tales.

“From the ancient to the 20th century, the gentlemen who augmented enterprise, freedom curbs and adventurous explorations have crafted the magnificent mosaic that is our nation.”

Today we stand at the fork of a trail as a fingerpost from the past to the present and into future. If we join hands to revive these lost tracks of our biodiversity, culture and traditions which led us till today, we will not be the last generations to tread the gentlemen’s trails.

By the end of the journey with us, you can arrive at whether the personalities depicted here were loyal contributors or mere consumers. Some will be fade into oblivion; some may remain temporarily as tombstones in your mind.

Few greats will stay in your hearts forever as living memorials relevant every minute, as they stood for freedom, service, enterprise, upliftment and peace. Sadly, today many of them are misrepresented by those who do not know them and their real motives, which kept the fire kindled in them.

George Abraham Pottamkulam

George was born to a large estate-owning family in the 1960s when plantation was the main trade. He says in the 40 years that he grew up in comfort, the world in the estate life changed giving way to well-educated and diversified entrepreneurs from plantations in south India. 

Fascinated by tourism in plantation bungalows, architecture and the stories of the pioneers from the past, he compiled a coffee table book, The Path to the Hills: History of the Plantations of Western Ghats. Simultaneously, in 2005, he networked plantation tourism to the global tourism services.

All along the journey, George had his passion for exploring the lives of colonials and Indians who were enterprising, compassionate and had religious tolerance. The mission work of early missionaries caught his attention, as his native place was one of the early mission stations in Kerala. He brought out a compilation on history, culture and religion The Lanterns On the Lanes in October 2020.

He lives in Mundakayam, near Periyar, Travancore, Kerala with his wife Anju, daughter Rose and son Abraham. He is a compiler favored by many Indian tour companies as a storyteller and a friend to ex-planter’s descendants to trace roots in India.
