Rice eating people of Kerala discards its production.People of Kerala used to depend on rice for their staple food from time immemorial. Naturally they gave importance to its production within the state. But these days things are changing. They are depending on rice imported from neighbouring States such as Tamil Nadu, Andhra, etc. The paddy fields are being converted for construction of residential or industrial buildings. This not only reduce the rice production but also adversely affects the water conservation.
Again another tragedy is that the hills are getting removed because of soil removal for filling paddy fields or roads. This again affects the water conservation adversely.
