The Story

The Keraleeya Samajam, Andheri (West) is the dream come true for more than 400
families from Kerala settled in Andheri West, Mumbai, who came together to celebrate
Onam, the Harvest Festival of Kerala in 2003, 2004 and 2005 to have a continued socio-
cultural forum to bear and share togetherness.

School, Mhada, Four Bungalows, Andheri West. A Provisional Committee of seven
