M.P. Bezbaruah (Author)
Synopsis Bill Gates of Microsoft identified tourism as one of the three major industries of the future. With the projected arrival of 1.6 billion tourists by 2020 generation tourist receipts of US $ 2000 billion, creating one job every 2.5 seconds, tourism, today, had emerged as one of the biggest industries of the future. India offers, as is often said, the ‘World in one Place’ – with tremendous variety that provides everything for everyone. What is the present scenario of tourism development in India? What is India’s position in the global scenario? How is India prepared to participate in the great tourism boom of the 21st century? The book “Indian tourism Beyond the Millennium” by a person, who has an inside view of the development of tourism in India, delves into these and many other pertinent questions. As India prepares to enter the new millennium, the book traces the history of tourism development in India, the constraints that limit its growth and the issues that may fashion the future. Replete with valuable statistical information, its incisive insight into the emerging trends, coupled with commonsense prescription for the future, makes the book a ‘must read’ for policy planners, researchers, students and the general public alike. The book takes us through the global scenario, the progress of Indian tourism as unfolded in the 50 years since Independence, the specific issues of ecology and sustainable development with reference to fragile areas like Ladakh and North-East India, the Importance of public-private partnership – in fact a kaleidoscope of all you wanted to know about Indian tourism.
