Truth of so called Kerala model.

Coronavirus spreads in cities.

Did you know Kerala has no cities?

No city from Kerala is in Top 50 in India.

Kochi, largest in Kerala, is 75th in population.

Check it.

So that's what "Kerala model" is. No cities.

So if you are someone who wants rest of India & world to learn Kerala model, get ready to shut down New York, Paris, Mumbai and Delhi.

Of course then you'd have to find a job in the Gulf.

But that's okay, because that's a lovely "workers paradise" run by secular law.

I also discovered something hilarious (and sad) about Kerala.

During 2011 census, seems Kerala was embarrassed about not having cities.

So they took huge extra areas around their cities and counted them as "metropolitan area"

In some cases, "metropolitan area" defined around Kerala cities was so big that population of the "metropolitan area" became 8 times larger than the city

This was so embarrassing that 2011 Census put official disclaimer that these should not be compared with rest of India

In other words, if you rename the whole of Jharkhand as "Ranchi metropolitan area" you will find that Ranchi is the biggest metro city in India.
