To commemorate the establishment of Kerala as an independent state in the nation, Kerala Piravi is observed with excitement and zeal. Travancore, Malabar, and Cochin were the names given to the three regions that made up Kerala before to its unification. After the three portions were combined, Kerala became a separate state on 1 November 1956. On this day, people celebrate Kerala Piravi, which celebrates the birth of the state of Kerala.

This day is often referred to as Kerala Day and the birthday of the state of Kerala since in the Malayalam language, the word “piravi” means “birth.”

History

Kerala Piravi

Kerala was not recognised as a state but rather as Cochin, Travancore, and Malabar even after India gained its freedom. Travancore dominated the southern region, Cochin controlled the middle, and Malabar was in charge of Kasaragod, Kannur, and Thalassery. All three regions were combined to form Kerala as a state in 1956 as part of the State Reorganisation Act. People have been commemorating this day as Kerala Day or Kerala Piravi ever since.
