The Prime minister donated a trophy to make an event of snake boat race.Later the trophy is named   "Nehru trophy"

  1. Alleppey in Kerala also called Alapuzha is famous for backwaters, so the attraction of the beach is sometimes overshadowed by the backwaters. There are beautiful beach resorts in Alleppey. They are situated at the sides of the sea beaches to attract the tourists to the place.
