On this 1st November, Kerala state completes 58 years of its existence. It was on this day in 1956 that the reorganisation of Madras States was implemented forming Andhra, Kerala and Karnataka states. This greatly helped in these linguistic states plan their development and better living condition for the people.
As far as Kerala was concerned, it was the fulfilling of the dream of Aikya Kerala by merging of the Malayalam speaking Malabar, Cochin and Travancore areas in to one piece. And in the election to the first state assembly, the Communist Party came in to power and the Communist Government was formed with Com. EMS Namboodiripad as the Chief Minister. It was one of the best government Kerala has ever seen since.
