Promoting Indian Tourism

Recommended Posts

An advertisement appeared in the newspaper promoting Madhya Pradseh as a tourist destination. At Pachmari, one can see wooded hills, steep waterfalls, tranquil glades and nature trails. The city of Mandu is surrounded by impregnable defenses both natural and man made. Gwalior boasts of one of the largest forts – takes nearly 3 hours of walking. Then there are Bandhavgarh, Kanha, Panna and Pench – well known for their tigers and national parks. Bhimbhetka takes you to World Heritage sites prehistoric rock caves with paintings more than 12,000 years ago. The Khajuraho temple carvings are another attraction. Chanderi and Maheswar create beautiful brocades, muslins, silks and hand-woven sarees – the Chanderi sarees are well known all over the country. The advertisement goes on and on and indicates an official website – www.mptourism.com that can be referred for more information.

We have seen the visuals of Kerala that identify the state as ‘God’s own country’. There are other independent methods of attracting the tourists to India. But, these all are in isolation. If all of these combined together, it would help in promoting the country as a whole. There could be a series of programs on TV with one day reserved for each state. Such combined efforts will surely reap better dividends.

We have seen lot of programmes in TV regarding tourism in the past. Those programmes have become irregular of late. Moreover the programmes are not organized properly. It will be better if anyone launch a separate channel for tourism and cultural heritage of different Indian states.

I mean something of the type you have mentioned - a regular series on one of the popular channels where one state is taken every day.
