Today I received a personal thank you message from the co-founder of a responsible tourism company I worked with last year, for the videos I made for them which has lately resulted in a lot of enquiries for their trips.

A story thread with lessons for all content creators ⬇️ During a travel summit in mid-2019 I met the co-founders of this decade old responsible travel company that until then had mostly catered to foreign guests visiting rural India. They wanted to work with Indian content creators and attract domestic tourists.

There has been a drastic fall in traffic on my @YouTube channel this month. I've been reading that it is the same with a lot of travel #creators across the world. ☹️

At the same time, we all seem to have a lot of time & less things to do in this work from home situation.😃

So.. Image If you are a creator, add your best vlogs/blogs to this thread. I'm going to add my best ones too.

All of us can watch/read these at home + add new places to our bucket list for the other side of the epidemic.

Let's support creators & spread some positivity.
RT for reach 😀

1/4 Taking my usual route home on-board the Bhubaneswar #RajdhaniExpress & I was greeted with this new decoration of the train rake by @NALCO_India. Brilliant initiative by @RailMinIndia to promote @odisha_tourism & the rich cultural heritage of #Odisha.

More pics in thread. ImageImageImage 2/4 I was able to spot several historic monuments, natural reserves, wildlife destinations, & dance forms of the state. ImageImageImage

It’s a sleepless night. Incessant rains since 12 hours. The tiny stream is a huge raging river now.

Every time I read about the civilian killings and protests in Kashmir, I'm reminded of my first visit last year and the army episode we had. And that just doesn't let me accept that 'the army is right no matter what and not supporting the army makes me anti-national'. If I as an innocent Indian have an emotional outburst and say something bad to an Army man in some hypothetical situation, I would probably be given a stern look and warning. Replace me with a Kashmiri and the response would perhaps be bullets without warning.

Hi @ola_supports @Olacabs , I just booked a cab from Bhubaneswar Railway station to the airport. Two things happened and you need to take some kind of action so pls read on:
1. I was shown an estimate of Rs.88 while booking, but then I reach the destination and the bill comes to Rs.160. The driver says it must be parking charges (Rs.55) which got added. I checked the breakup. It indeed was. Why do I have to pay a parking charge for entering the airport? It doesn't happen even in Delhi or Mumbai airports (There it happens only at 'Arrivals' and that

A positive @dominos_india story. Because these should be highlighted too:
We placed an online order yesterday that included two Choco Lava cakes with the pizzas. As usual got a call from the nearby store for order confirmation and was told that the cake isn't available. (1/5) I questioned why the website let me place the order in the first place if something wasn't available. The manager said he was helpless about that but since we had already paid, he said he would get it delivered next day or whenever we wanted it in the coming days. (2/5)

Just declined what could have been a great collaboration possibility for the blog from a reputed organisation associated with a TOURISM BOARD as they won't take care of flights (coming close to 25k for me) for THEIR event scheduled just a week from now on THEIR invitation. How can invite and say "We would like to reiterate that it will be a matter of pride for us to welcome you at the Event and look forward to your valued confirmation" and then say Travel expenses to/from will be borne by the Invitees?
