Wayanad District, where my home is situated is in the north-east of Kerala , India. The etymology of the word Wayanad is Vayal (paddy) Naad (land); ‘Land of Paddy Fields’ (unfortunately not many fields are left!). There are many indigeneous tribals in this area. It is set lofty on the majestic Western Ghats with altitudes ranging from 700 to 2100 Metres above mean sea level. Wayanad is known as the land of spicy hills.
