South India also known as Peninsular India or Deccan India covers most of the part of peninsular India. The word “Deccan” is an anglicized form of the word “Prakrit” derived from the Sanskrit word “dakshina” meaning south. The states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka collectively form South India.
These states are bordered by the colossal Eastern and Western Ghats; Western Ghats being an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fresh and crisp air that caresses your face the moment you enter the boundaries of South India is the greatest discerning factor than the rest of the country and fills your heart with a childlike glee on eyeing the paddy fields. The quaint countryside while taking a road trip down South is a feeling that for sure cannot be put into words.
