Abstract : The flood is the most recurrent natural disaster in India which in turn had resulted in huge loss of life, infrastructure and financial crisis. It has played a prominent role in Kerala civilization, culture and economy. This study is a comparative study of the floods that had happened in the years 1924 and 2018 in Kerala. These two disasters which happened in two different eras have altered man’s perception of life and the traumatic experience they have encountered stays within them forever. The flood taught Malayalis the importance of nature and its influence in the lives. Thus, it is requisite to take into consideration the areas affected in the flood in both the years so as to get to know the disaster-prone areas and the necessary measures to be implemented to reduce the impact of the catastrophe in the coming years. © 2019, World Research Association.
