Although i have never visited the province, but its contribution to the glory of the nation is known to us all. the province has contributed in every walk of life.
i know that culturally it has great heritage, sea product, spices, various fruits all are from kerala.
dance form, a wrestlin style, and services in medical field; all are the gifts of the province.
in a nutshell one without going to kerala is feels its presence all over the country. whereever you are in india, you owe to kerala for something or the other; isn't it.
