It was a wonderful experience to be on that stage receiving this award. News appeared in the Mathrubhumi, Deccan Chronicle Newspapers the next day.
A 4 nights/5 day Kerala tour package was also awarded to me. We were provided with to and fro flight tickets, resort accommodation in various places like Kovalam, Kumarakom, Alleppey, Thekkady and Cochin. A vehicle from the Tourism Department was also allotted to us for these 6 days by Kerala Tourism.
Everything was arranged in a very good manner. Thank You Kerala Tourism and Invis Media. Special thanks to Shri. Prasanth and Ms. Lakshmi (Invis Media) for corresponding with us and making all arrangements. We had a great time.
