I am writing a long

Friends, all of us need travel and tours really in our lives.
"Travel far enough, you meet
yourself.” ― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas.
Travel is the activity
of making a journey to another geographical
location other than where we live. We are compelled to travel
often because of family functions, meeting friends, and attend official
duties. We travel for pleasure on excursions and for recreation on tourism.
“Travel brings power and love back into your
life.” ― Rumi
Travel is a
necessary diversion for us from daily mundane routine. Travel enriches our knowledge and wisdom, which is not possible by
being in our place. Travel costs some amount. We need
to take precautions. We need to make plans for the journey.
However, it is worth all the effort.
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.
I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” ― Robert Louis
Tourism is travelling to various popular touristic and heritage locations
in the state, country or world. Tourism helps us to learn the good
history and rich cultural heritage that our ancestors have given us. We
can enjoy touring when basic amenities are available like lodging, conveyance,
boarding and public transport. All one has to do is to book well in
advance for all the facilities. It costs a lot, but
tourism allows one to see what we study in our lessons. We learn a lot of practical issues, see different cultures,
interacting with people of multiple backgrounds and manners.
Most of the employed are given annual vacation and to
go on tourism along with their family by a scheme called Leave Travel Allowance. We can get
information on the touristic spots through Internet or from Tourism department
or from travel agencies.
In India, travel and tourism is not so convenient as in
developed countries. The ministry of tourism needs to take corrective
measures. Many foreigners are not interested in touring India due to
risks of infection and dirtiness. Many countries like Sri Lanka,
Singapore earn a lot of revenue through tourists from developed
countries. Safety is also a concern.
In India people visit pilgrimage centers and big cities.
Tourism to isolated heritage centers is not the first choice. Is it right
that we boast of India's greatness, but not visit our own heritage centers and
remember our ancestors great deeds and constructions? Do not forget to know the weather at the destinations before
