The event also marked the launch of the Indian tourism ministry’s 60 seconds promotional ad on yoga called ‘Yogi of the racetrack.’ “In four days we have had 7 million views for our promotional ad.

Tourism secretary Rashmi Bansal said that the ministry is working on promoting cultural evenings at national monuments in different destinations and has undertaken initiatives like keeping monuments illuminated at night. Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and UP are the top performing states in terms of foreign tourist arrivals. Alphons said that the ministry is also in the process of finalizing the national tourism policy and taking it to the cabinet.
