Our land is a part of the globe

A map is a representation of the physical geography of the physical earth. Each piece of land is part of the whole. Why people choose a particular land for migration is a big question worth pondering. This may not always be propelled by the urge to conquer but to be part of it. One’s homeland may be a foster land for the other. Migraton through sea was comparatively a sort of harmonious exploration where as those through the land was more of a conquest. These are some specific reasons why a potion of the peninsula becomes center of attraction. The ocean currents and the wind is one factor which attributes to a place becoming a natural harbour. Water has always been the main conduit for trade and exploration. Kochi is symbolic of one such piece of land.
