Well, that has mostly got to do with our love for the country. The beaches, the hills, the ocean, the jungles, are our home. Our culture is rich with the remnants of past civilisations, flavourful culinary and artistic skills. All we do is take care of them, and share it with the world to cherish it as much as we do.
