KANYAKUMARI

According to legends, the formation of the fertile portion of land lying between the Malabar Hills or Western Ghats, and the Arabian Sea, spreading from Gokarnam to Cape Comorin was due to the ' Sage Parashurama. Parashurama, the son of Sage Jamadagni, obtained a boon by propitiating the Sun God that the area of the sea covered by the throw of  mighty axe would be reclaimed as an inhabitable country. Accordingly, the sea receded and the rich and luxuriant Malabar Coast came into existence.

The one distinguishing feature of the sand at the Cape is that it is of various colors. The modern scientists call it monozite sand. At present, Uranium, which is most valuable for generating atomic energy, is being extracted from this sand. Will it be far wrong to say in this correction that the Sakti or Power of the Goddess Mother is still scene in the sand which, according to the legend, is but the transformation of the dainty colored dishes cooked for the heavenly guests on the occasion of her proposed marriage?  'The  Atom, we all know, is the smallest practicle.
