An Answer To A Prayer!

I'm certain this has nothing to do with me really but I am ecstatic that I'm not the only one who realizes that it is past time for Amritsar to improve. Which is why I'm proudly standing behind, supporting and and broadcasting this event in every way I can. Unfortunately I've been forbidden from participating but that doesn't mean I can't support the effort in my own way.

I know most of you don't live in Amritsar but if you know anyone here, please encourage them to also support these new endeavors which are going to be happening throughout 2012. I will be here broadcasting each one that I hear about and trying to rally more support as well. What am I talking about you ask? Well, the Amritsar Tourism Office (ATO) is now sponsoring a series of events to raise awareness and make Amritsar a better place to live. They are bringing awareness to the community to help citizens understand their own responsibility in making this city better.

The idea is to make this a more welcoming city for tourism and this makes me very happy. We see a lot of tourists here while we're out at night and on the weekends. There have even been reports that the Golden Temple receives more tourist annually than the Taj Mahal (which after all the traffic I see could be possible lol - don't go out on Thursdays if you have to pass by there!). If these endeavors pay off and don't get ignored by the public or sabotaged as some other cities efforts have then this is going to be the best thing to happen to Amritsar.

Here's a link to the news article so you can get more information and please, pass this along to anyone you know who lives here so they can come out and show their support as well.
