Tourism essay - 26th May India
The traditional life style of local people in developing countries is attracting and increasing the number of tourists to the countries which has the effect of preventing local people changing to modern ways. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Recent years have witnessed a marked interest in international tourism and the traditional lifestyles of people in the developing countries are acting as magnets to the tourists. I firmly believe that this is deterring the local people to change their customs and traditions and adopt modern ways of life. A number of arguments support my opinion.
The most convincing argument to support this view is that the presence of visitors who continually praise the host culture gives people a kind of confidence and pride in their traditions, and makes them truly believe that their culture is glorious and thus worthy of this praise and therefore justly admired. This realization removes any possibility in the people's mind that their lifestyle was in any way inferior to that of advanced nations, and plays an important role in retaining their lifestyle in general. For example, when tribal people of Rajasthan, India are appreciated for their clothing style and their dances such as the ‘Snake Charmer’s Dance’, they put even more effort to practice those art forms and present them to the tourists.
Talk about things that can make you a bit angry. Please say
- What are they?
- When and where are they happening, usually?
- Why do they make you angry?
- I am a very cool person by nature
- Even my friends say that I am as cool as a cucumber
- But there are some circumstances when I feel a bit angry
- Firstly when I need to talk urgently to someone and that person does not pick up my phone or is busy on another call then it offends me.
- Secondly, when someone throws rubbish here and there, it annoys me because I like to keep my surroundings spic and span.
- I also get bugged when I am on my two wheeler and people behind me keep honking their horns for no reason at all.
