THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  The tourism sector in the state, which has been limping back to normalcy after the recent deluge, received a major boost on Tuesday as national cricket captain Virat Kohli exhorted people to pay God’s Own Country a visit.

Kohli, who is staying at The Leela Raviz Kovalam with the Men in Blue ahead of the fifth ODI against the West Indies, left behind a note that said: “Being in Kerala is nothing short of bliss.  I love coming here and love the energy of the whole place. The beauty of Kerala is something to be experienced and I would recommend to everyone that they come here and experience the energy of God’s Own Country. Kerala is surely back to its feet and absolutely safe to come to. Thanks to this amazing place for making me feel happy every time I am here.”
