1. Which are the best school bags in Kerala?
Most good durable brands have a national presence. So, you can buy it from a good shop order it from a well known site like amazon or flipkart etc. Also the concept of school bag only has changed to a school bag that will double up as a sports bag, day out bag etc. So, it's more of a multipurpose bag rather than a school bag only.
