Foreigners to be invited to experience traditional marriages
Bengal has long been known for its tolerance – be it in religion, culture or anything else. Now, the State Government’s Tourism Department has decided to put that to good use by inviting foreign tourists to experience traditional marriages.
Foreign tourists would be invited to select marriages by the department, and it would be part of tour packages. The tourists would be able to experience and enjoy the various sights and sounds of traditional marriages of Bengal. They would be encouraged to be in traditional garb too, to have an even more immersive experience. This is a highly appreciable move to promote the cultures of Bengal.
In another bid to popularise tourism in the state, the department has decided to encourage wildlife photography, though taking care that wildlife and the environment are not harmed in any way.
In this connection, it may be noted that Bengal is among the top five states in terms of arrival of foreign tourists, and these and other measures by the Trinamool Congress-led government are expected to boost the sector further.
