Have you ever wondered why our country continues to fail to attract foreign tourists? Smaller countries like the UAE and Singapore get more tourists than India. A site like Stonehenge in the UK gets more tourists than India does. What is the reason? We are a vast country with lots of different cultures, festivals and colours. Our historical sites are second to none. The country is a photographer’s delight. Then why do tourists avoid India? The answer is we lack infrastructure and more importantly, we do not know how to market our tourist spots. Until we do both, things will not improve.
This month is an accessories special. With the festival season approaching, treat yourself to the accessory you always wanted and in the process, improve your images.
