    Tourism is the most neglected sector of modern India in spite the huge potential it offers towards employment and business.
    The unique and beautiful destinations are not presented to the Tourists with proper information. New forma of presentation are not created either.
    Private players need to get into this field to develop and maintain sites with long term vision and business plans too.
    Young India should learn from the world and implement fresh ideas.
    Tourism can be a very profitable business if destinations and ideas are showcased well.
