especially those of the foreign variety, treat as
sacrosanct whatever is written in guide books for
tourists, survival kits, etc. This
being so, all that remains in the way of our very own
JAMALPUR becoming a tourist haven is an elegant, slick,
welloiled, well written brochure--skillfully
marketed and sufficiently hyped Purists might argue, but
why not? Jamalpur has all the makings of a great tourist
center. Just consider this-
For those with a keen sense of history and a love for Shakespeare, a signboard proclaiming that the great lovers Jomeo and Ruliet died from that very spot can be put up.
The place can be billed as one for the tourist with Adventure-in-his genes, a sobriquet no one would not want to be attached to him/herself
After all, arent a huge number of places such marketed-words and pictures make them appear more beautiful than they really are.
However, theres much more to Jamalpur than just natural beauty-amongst them, numerous relics of the Raj.
By itself, it would be one of the points on the tourist map, but with death hanging over the SCRA scheme like a Damocles sword, would we like our dear Gym to die away as well-NOT IN A ZILLION YEARS
Gym could be converted into a 7-star hotel marketed as a British style resort, with traditions of the White Sahibs kept alive.
And hey, man, what are we getting-THE DESTINATION OF THE 22nd CENTURY- all that remains is a small brochure.
Armed with the experience of having done half a dozen brochures, for IRIMEE, I am ready to prepare it, if someones there to sponsor it.
