I have recently written an article for the Maharashtra Economic Digest on Tourism, and the economic spin-offs of a vibrant, growing industry. In the article I also presented a focus on the draft National Tourism Policy 2015, prepared by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. The centre in partnership with the states is giving high priority to the development of tourism activity in the country.

Pratap J is a landscape and travel photographer from Bangalore, India. He loves shooting in the great outdoors of India – a country so vast that he thinks one lifetime is not sufficient to cover the length and breadth of the country. An engineer by education and profession, Pratap J works hard to balance his hobby and day job. His weekends are almost always dedicated to photography and travel. When he is not living off a backpack, he is mentoring other photography enthusiasts in a classroom or in the field.

Pratap loves to write about the places he visits in detail. He has been blogging at http://www.pixelshooter.net since 2006.

Q&A – February 2017

If you have read my message for December you probably know what I’m going to talk about in January – the first month of the new year. Yes, it is about the kind of resolutions you can make for the well being of your family. I am saying this from the point of view of annual vacation that help you spend good, quality time together – far away from the pressures of work.

The first part of this message has to do with end-customers of timeshare. And my concern here is about customers understanding timeshare as a vacation product, and being aware of the long-term benefits and commitments.

Gerhard and Beate Schreiber came on a long planned holiday to India – they were coming back after 35 years, which is a long, long time. This endearing German couple has fond memories of their first holiday in the country, and always looked forward to coming back to retrace their first vacation trail and revisit familiar tourist spots.

According to Gerhard, India seems like a country that has moved into a whole new era. I can see progress, I can see advancement and I can see a whole new pace in terms of lifestyles, architecture, entertainment, sport and travel.

For us, it was like an experience that can be described as back to the future.

Come December, I usually have a special message for my readers. This is the last month in the year and a good time to do some introspection – always useful to look back and place the last twelve months under review.

Doing a review usually means asking yourself some tough questions, and the answers must be as honest as possible – you won’t be fair to yourself, otherwise.

Over a period of time AIRDA’s editorial team has played the role of a listening post for feedback on timeshare from customers and non-customers. Our keen interest to know more has led us to a wide cross-section of people from different backgrounds, professions, age groups and locations. These are people who also share something in common: the need for a unique holiday experience that timeshare can provide.

This month we feature a selection of responses to provide an overview of the timeshare experience. Our responses here are primarily from people who have seen the benefits of going on that well deserved vacation, every year.
