The delegates were astonished to see the facilities offered in government run schools in the state.  

Dr. Rajesh Tripathy, faculty, MNNIT says he was fascinated by the Granite statues he founded at Adi Sankaracharya Sthoopam in Kalady. Further, the drip irrigation system that is being used in banana plantations by the farmers in Kerala  is seen as a stark contrast to the banana farming followed in Uttar Pradesh.
