THE TOURISM INDUSTRY IS A HUGE PART OF OUR ECONOMY. BUT IT FLOURISHES ONLY IF THE TOURISTS’ SAFETY IS ASSURED.

While the city’s coast was reverberating with Sounds on Sand, the Krishna riverbed was echoing with sad cries of the kin of 20 victims of the boat capsize. Touting the Vizag music festival as a harbinger of a big growth in the industry, AP Tourism insists that the Araku Hot Air Balloon Festival is bound to take it to a new high. We congratulate the tourism initiatives but can’t help pointing out the chink in its security system. The private boat operator has no licence; the driver has neither licence nor the experience and worst of all, the boat was overloaded. How could officials overlook such lapses? If the state looks at the tourism as a megabuck earner, it has to take the necessary steps to ensure the tourist’s safety. Compensation and condolence can never fill the gap left behind by the victims of the tragedy.

The needless protests against Miss Vizag Beauty Pageant showed our uncanny knack of blowing things out of proportion. The so-called activists didn’t, perhaps, even know what they were rising against. They were shouting hoarse against the event being associated with the Save the Girl Child theme, but missed a point. The event is a stepping stone for youth, who want to try their luck in films, modelling and fashion. By scuttling the pageant, are they not robbing them of an opportunity? Their claim that multinationals make money out of women's bodies is equally contentious. The line may appear thin, but there is a clear-cut difference between aesthetics and vulgarity. Let us not mix them up. The minister unveiling the poster irked them. It looks more politically motivated move than a genuine concern for women. Don’t we need such elegant shows to meet the Smart City parameters? It is time we accepted the winds of change.

Mehreen Pirzada has put her best foot forward. We cover her talent. Under the guidance of President, Asia Pacific Chapters, Mahesh Mac Srinivasan, BNI recorded huge growth. Fortune Inn Sree Kanya completed a decade. All credit to K.Gurumurthy & Gurumurthy Gupta. Promoted by Ramesh Raju, Fairfield By Marriott promises to be the next big thing in the town.

Meet all of them in this edition as we get busy with upcoming issue.
