a bland TTF

I've been accused of not updating my blog everytime i'm home. I actually wonder, if people do glance through whatever i write(i think not). Considering that most of my time is spent in another city.

I'd been to the Travel and Tourism Fair(TTF) which was held at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium. I was impressed when they gave a pack of cards along with each ticket. Each card had the photo of a tourist destination. It was really a good effort.

Karnataka playing host, the Karnataka Tourism Development Corporation had put up a pretty good stall. With pillars and short sculptures hewn out of granite, it looked ethnic.

Not many state tourism development boards had stalls of their own, and i was disappointed and annoyed at the same time. Except for Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Bihar, Sikkim, i didn't see any other states showcasing their land. Most of the players were private, you know. Hotels, resorts, travel agents, the business lot, promoting their goods. also had a stall. They were better than the rest, i should say. The posters were colourful and bright. My room shall adorn atleast one of them.

It could have been organized in a better way. I would like to be informed more about a state and it's tourist attractions, than a particular hotel and it's tarrifs.

Bah! Bah!
