8:50 AM: “It is happy to see Indians are traveling to various destinations across the world for vacations. It is great news that their children are getting international exposure. However, today, I have one request to every Indian traveler of today. Before you consider international destinations for your travel pleasure, please give a thought to visit atleast 4-5 Indian destionations. However inaccessible they will be, however deep it might be in the North East, give it a thought. Educate your children about the importance of India’s heritage and cultural traditions through local travel. India is diverse and rich in heritage. Foreigners mention about the beauty of a temple in Tamilnadu, however, we smile and tell them that we have not visited them. This is not a good sign for the future generations”. – PM Modi.
