India - EcoTourism
My recent visit to Sonapani - a small village near Nainital - about an hour and a half away, opened my eyes to the immense possibilities that enterprise and nature bestows in the area. A resort that is being run by an enterprising young man, is helping provide employment to the village folk, and is leveraging on the very environment ( without affecting it negatively) is a big achievement. If there were about a 100 such resorts set up in a state, tourism would surely be a big opportunity provider for the people of every state. The assumption is that there are many such locales available in every state that can be leveraged well - what is missing are the enterprising young people..
