Summer Rain: Harvesting the Indigenous Knowledge of Kerala by C.R. Rajagopalan (ed.). Thrissur: Centre for IK/Folklore Studies 2004. Rs. 125.

Indigenous knowledge in Kerala, as in any part of the world, was impeccable in matters concerning the forests, the agricultural fields, the ponds and the rivers. It had a holistic understanding of the social and ecological fabric of the living planet. This book is a compilation of articles that echo the sheer joy of being part of a natural heritage that is simply rich; the articles also echo the pain of many a vanishing tradition. It is an effort to map the indigenous memories.
