Since the most important places adhere to our culture of “atithi of tourist interests are temples so let us have a look at the tourism facilities devo bhava”. Everywhere over here. would they be given respect and would be made to feel at• Tourist harassment:- home. tourist are harassed everywhere in India. Even here sometimes they are charged very high rates for something that costs something very less.

  12. 12. Let’s work towards making the tourist destinations here give eternalpleasure.•All these tourist destinations would be interconnected throughunderground roads and waterways.•For example all the major temples in vrindavan would be connectedthrough underground roads and on the sides would be music boxeswhich would play some piece of spiritual music and make all thesetourists get lost in HIS worship.•Also there would be proper parking facilities for the vehicles so thatthey donot create any havoc.•Let us take the case of Dwarikadhish temple.

And they would be able to get the PWD attend to their grievances.

CONCLUSION• So finally I would like to conclude in my dream there would be greater incomes for people through development of software technology parks, industries and tertiary sector creating a cycle of greater income.• Greater income would mean that people would be able to earn greater income which would lead to higher tax payment• Through these taxes government would be able to spend more on the maintenance of these infrastucture and provision of civic amenities
