Tourism managing director Sumita Misra said in a release on Friday that various competitions for students would be organised on the day at various resorts. Small gifts comprising sweets, balloons and biscuits would be distributed among kids and welcome banners would be put up at all resorts, she said.

She said tourism in the state started with the concept of providing neat and clean lodging and boarding facilities in 1974. Over the years, it has earned a name in the highway, recreation and heritage tourism, she said, adding that it had also launched the concept of farm tourism.

She said for promotion of human resource development, state institutes of hotel management had been set up at Kurukshetra, Panipat, Rohtak and Faridabad.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
