    20th back to life...

    a few points I observed in my travels to our tourism has become hoteling industry...
    Mussorie is an example the queen of hills has now become a concrete jungle

    Cleanliness is a major issue...The Taj and agra fort are great but the minute you step outside its urine and spittle.....same in Jaipur Jantar mantar/...

    The ASI declares camera fees and video fees but no body checks only a cursary still he na...what about all the video and camera afcilities in phones that the majority
    Sriraman sir....That might be some thing worth tapping

    Its about time we ivest in poilets in these places with baby changing facilities...

    there are highway hotels in UP and Uttaranchal which claim green envirorment clean water clean toilets(they do maintain it)

    TN needs those not mammandur Urea depot for services!!!

    Shatabdi services were great comparable to airlines but the coaches could do with cleaning outside

    Jaipur walled city still preserved out developement clean and planned.

    Madras is far cleaner than Delhi Jaipur and Dehradun

    The raods are great but we could still use lane discipline that would be the need of the hour If thailand can do it why cant we...

    The Big temple as majestic as ever Thanks to SPS and Kudavoil Balsubramaniam got to darshan the Akasa lingam and Aruba lingam and see the Karanas

    The Musuem is Great Sriraman sir and Sathyamoorthi sir Great work....But audio tours will be great...

    In fact we should allow people to see the paintings and karanas for a price because thats art not worship but there are security issues..but since it is a small confined areas metal detectors could be used and people could be frisked.

    I thought the digital remaster pictures could be photoed there were no signs saying we shouldnt bit a cleaner said its not permitted.

    The nandhi where people place two fingers just to see the Uadayar is now imprisoned...

    SPS sir I did check the bronze statue on the left side its still there

    this is facing the Siva Parvathi Urchava moorthis and it was called RRC i the olden days

    Nice to see special poojas for varahi and publicising that this and kasi are the only two places with shrines for Varahi (I dont know if its ttrue)

    the Linga navagraha is publicised and you see people going there...but a question will the navagraha not always be in the Sanimoolai...



    Sorry its a lomg mail will continue
