Colors of India!

Since I have spent so much of time on my site writing about traveling, going new places, exploring, I thought this is the right time to write about a site which attracts all the Travelers who want to know more about India, its Culture, History & heritage. The idea was an incredible way to market our travel industry & as far I see, it was one successful campaign. I’m talking about Incredible India, a programme which the Ministry of Tourism undertook to promote India as a preferred Travel destination. It went to many places over the couple of years & its website’s making news for all the good reasons for winning the PC world awards 2008. The site gets an approximately of over 10 lac hits in a day world over, that’s infact a huge traffic movement I would say. Its theme for internet media called “Colors of India” is really superb. Some of the images used do really reflect the colors of India, a very colorful country with a lot of vibrant colors & places, that’s the reason I was really tempted to upload few images straight from the theme. If you haven’t been dipped into these colors it’s time to get out of your cubicle & hit the road. I remember a famous quote which often does appear on Discovery Channel from St Augustine- “The world is a book & those who do not travel read only one page”.

Some other Quotes which grab my attention:

“There is no happiness for the person who does not travel. For Indra is the friend of the traveler, therefore wander!”

“Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled".
-Prophet Mohammed

Don’t you think these statements from the wise are really good enough for a Headstart?
