A package has been issued to local residents of a popular Indian restaurant, in an attempt to help them survive the heat in the scorching summer months.
The package, which is being distributed by the Kerala Tourism Corporation (KTC), includes a cafe and eatery in Thiruvananthapuram.
“We have been working on it for a few months and it has been in the works for two years.
We have asked the local government to help us with this,” said Thiruvathur Prakash, a KTC member.
The KTC is currently distributing around 40 boxes of the new package, including a small one-bedroom unit in the hotel.
“It will provide a place for us to stay for the night.
It will provide us a place to cook and keep our supplies in the fridge,” he said.
The distribution of the KTC package has taken on a festive feel with the help of an interactive map.
It is designed to help residents understand the benefits of the hot and humid summer months in Kerala.
“For a week, all we have done is pick up the KTM bags, put them in the vans and drive back to our homes.
The whole day we were driving to our home and we had a lot of fun.
I am happy that I have found something to do.
There is nothing like it,” said Anil Dharmesh, who was among the first to get the Ktm package.
He said that during the monsoon season, he could only cook one meal a day and the heat was unbearable.
“I had to cook all the meals that I could afford.
But the Ktc package was the answer to my problem,” he told The Hindu.
The local government is now considering whether to start the Kttm distribution in other areas of the state.
