Presentation dispels rumours about subcontinent

If would-be tourists are looking for a vacation hot spot that has just about everything, India just might be the ticket.

That’s the word from a joint conference by India Tourism, Jet Airways and Airliners at the India Gate restaurant in Newmarket,

“I would say that whatever your reasons are, there is a good one to go to India. It is a kaleidoscope?” director of operations with Airliners and ATourz Kiron Kumar said.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and has also been named among the top vacation destinations, Mr. Kumar added.

For the most part, India is as developed as Canada, Mr. Kumar noted in his presentation.

Travel agents and representatives from across York Region and beyond dined on Indian fare provided by the restaurant.

Tourist information officer with India Tourism Vibhava Tripathi said his slide shows offered just a taste of what his country has to offer.

“You have seen a bit of India, but you have not seen it all,” he said.

“If you are not selling India, you are not doing much, because two or three years from now, people will be knocking on your door saying, ‘I want to go to India’. Be prepared when the time comes.”

Mr. Tripathi also attempted to dispel some stigmas.

The country is a 12-month destination that offers all the modern amenities and has plenty to keep tourists occupied.

There’s no need to worry about king cobras or other dangerous beasts, Mr. Tripathi said, adding he has lived in India for most of his life and never seen one of the venomous snakes.

Overall, the presentation and dinner seemed well received, which was good news for India Gate owner Parshotam Dhiman, who used to work in the aviation industry.
