January 25 : India Tourism day
India Tourism Day on January 25th is aimed at increasing awareness about tourism through a range of activities. As an important sector in the services economy, “tourism” is increasingly playing a major role in contributing to the overall growth and sustainability of destinations and local communities by creating direct and indirect jobs. Tourism brings together people of different cultures and regions and fosters better mutual understanding. For doing this effectively and durably, it demands conditions of peace. It is, therefore, rightly said that tourism is the greatest peace movement in the world.
