If you have visited my About page (Its ok, if you haven’t because I too don’t visit about pages in other blogs, that’s why I am making a separate post), then you would be familiar with the reason for starting this blog.
I forgot the exact year, but I guess I was studying in 8th or 9th Standard back then. There was a competition announced by the Tourism Department of the Government of India, and they had announced in the news papers that they were looking for a Tag line for Indian Tourism (mainly to use it to promote Indian Tourism abroad, I guess) and hence people could contribute their ideas (it was like a contest).
‘Incredible India!’ which you see so much nowadays, should have won that contest, I guess (To its credit, I too think its a nice tag line). But my entry to that contest was ‘Destination Infinity’. Just imagine Indian Tourism on top and Destination Infinity just below that…. I thought this was the most intellectual tag line that anyone could ever come up with!
But you know the Government no, there is a lot of red-tapism (In my case, I suspect corruption also but since I don’t have any proof to substantiate it, I just keep suspecting!) 🙂
So, I became very upset and I decided that one day, I will make Destination Infinity even more popular than Incredible India! (I don’t have any problem with Incredible India! being so popular, but I just want Destination Infinity to become more popular than that). So, common Government, GIVE ME SOME COMPETITION 😛
That’s one reason I have started to explore tourist places within my region (some of them not much popular) and write about them with photos. You could also give me some ideas in the comments section as to how I can achieve my goal.
Secondly, there is one more goal in my life that I am pursuing with equal zest. I want to write my autobiography. This is actually a consequence of my first goal and I am planning to publish it after 32 years, because that’s when I will become 60 years old.
I want my autobiography to break all the international best selling records (yes, you read it right – ‘international’) and I want my marketing campaign (for selling it) to go on records as the longest marketing campaign for anything. You’ll buy it won’t you?
You might have noticed that I read a lot of popular autobiographies. I do them not because I am amused by them. But I am assessing my competition – I want to see how well people have written biographies/autobiographies so that I can beat them all, with mine.
For some reason, I have classified this post under the ‘humour’ category! 🙂 Instead of laughing your heart out, give me some ideas.
