Avery good morning to the excellencies, respected Principle sir, vice-principle sir, teachers, madams, and my dear colleagues. My name is … and I study in class … standard. I would like to speech on travel and tourism in India on this occasion. India is the most famous country all through the world for the travel and tourism because of the availability of many religious lifestyles here. Our country is full of heritage sites, historical monuments, beautiful sight-seeings, etc which makes India a best tourism place. Tourism to India is the economical source for the country and many lives depends on this. Because of the technological advancements everywhere, tourism has been very easy to any country. People are interacting to a great extent with the natural and historical sight seeings in India.
Because of the technological improvement all over the world, tourism is becoming one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. It benefits a lot in many ways however, sometimes big challenges affect various resources of the country such as economic, environmental, socio-cultural, and educational. It positively affects the economic growth and development of the country including various industries especially healthy tourism industry like accommodation, transportation, arts, entertainment, wildlife, etc. Tourism in our country is the source of new jobs to many people and revenue to the country. It also improves the living standard of many local people especially in the heavily visited tourist destinations. The prices of the basic commodities get increased during more traffic by the local people for the visiting tourists.
People from the developed country go for tour in the developing country however people from developing country cannot go for tour in the developed country because of the low economy status. Tourism in the developing countries may be high because of the low cost tour and travel package. However, together with the various positive effects of the tourism in the country, there are various negative effects also. Tourism in the country first affect the environment of the surrounding areas in tourists destinations because of the collection of huge amounts of garbage materials such as bottles, plastic wastes, food materials, etc. It affects the life style of both fauna and flora.
It also arise the issue of safety and security of the tourists at all the tourist destinations in the country. To attract tourists from abroad, the government of the country needs to invest some money in making tourist destinations attractive, safe and secure for the tourists. It also needs some professional guides in order to correctly guide tourists of other countries. Tourist destinations also need some advancements of facilities such as availability of proper environment, luxurious hotels, car service, 24 hrs electricity, clean water supply, etc in order to attract more tourists and difficulty free travel and living. Now-a-days, the risk of criminal activities is increasing such as kidnapping, bomb blast, and other acts of terrorism at the crowded places, thus the tourism needs tight security .

However it needs investment first in order to make the tourist destinations clean, more attractive, safe, and secure for the tourists safety purpose. If we analyze the level of tourism in the country the question arises that what we do to promote tourism in our country. Do we maintain proper cleanliness and hygiene in all the villages, towns and cities of the country. It needs proper cleanliness, safety and maintenance of the tourists destinations in the country in order to promote the tourism. Only being full of historical monuments, heritages, etc do not attract tourists. Tourists see cleanliness, safety and security of the tourists destinations of any country.

Good morning to the respected Principal sir, teachers and my dear colleagues. My name is…, and I study in class…th standard. I would like to speech today at this occasion on the topic of travel and tourism in India. As we all know that India is one of the most famous countries all over the world for its unique tour and travel destinations. Tourism in any country plays great role in the economic growth and development of a country. If we see the tourism in India, it is the second largest earning source of India through the foreign exchange by foreign tourists. A great percentage of people’s lives is based on only tourism itself because the tourism industry in India has employed a large number of people of both category, skilled and unskilled. Tourism in any country promotes its national integration and international brotherhood.
Our country is naturally and culturally endowed with the lots of beautiful and attractive places which have fascinated worldwide people from all over the world. Our country is one of the rich countries having heritages, historical monuments, forts, beaches, religious places, hill stations, etc attracting tourists from corner of the world.

Because of being rich with people of many religions and languages, our country is full of diversity in handicraft, folk dances, fairs, festivals, music, classical dance, dress, eating habits, living style, languages, etc which gives rise to the will or desire in the heart of worldwide people to see India.
Now-a-days, the tourism in India is highly promoted by the Departments of Tourism by the help of many Bollywood actors on international and domestic level. All the measures for promoting the tourism and tourists traffic in the country are recommended by the Tourism Advisory Board. Indian tourism is highly affected by the terrorism, insecurity and pollution in the country however, sincere efforts by the government of India are continued in order to develop the Indian tourism industry. It is one of the fastest growing industries and plays great role in the country’s economic development. Our country is a popular country for the tourist destinations all through the Asia where a big crowd of people come every year in spite of many problems. Our country is naturally bounded in its all four sides (one by the Himalaya, and other three sides by the Arabian sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean) offering wide range of sight-seeings.
The availability of many diverse geographical scenes, places, things and celebrations in India have delighted the tourists for years such as monuments, museums, forts, sanctuaries, religious places, palaces, handicrafts, fairs, festivals, classical and folk dances, music, languages, Agra, Jaipur, Jhansi, Nalanda, Mysore, Hyderabad, Mahabaleshwar, Delhi, Aurangabad, Ujjain, Shirdi, Hardwar, Varanasi, Puri, Allahabad, Amritsar, Ajmer, Vaishno Devi, Badrinath, Rameshwaram, Kedarnath, Srinagar, Manali, Kullu, Dehradun, Darjeeling, Nainital, Ooty, Shimla, Kashmir etc.
Variety of interesting activities such as water sports, sailing, scuba diving, rafting, skiing, mountaineering, houseboats, winter sports, etc are promoting the tourism in India. In order to encourage people, a tourism campaign named as ‘Incredible India’ was started by the Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) in in 2005. Tourists places in India has also been divided under sections like spiritual tourism,’ ‘ecotourism’, ‘spa tourism’, and ‘adventure tourism’ in order to encourage tourism and better growth in India.
Pollution in India has hit the Indian tourism industry to a great extent for example, effluents from the Mathura Refinery is affecting the marbles of Taj Mahal in Agra because of the negligence of concerned authorities. Another example is, beautiful beaches in India is altering gradually into the dumping grounds of garbage and wastes left by the tourists. So, it needs to overcome the pollution issues in India as well as promote medical tourism in order to enhance tourism India. Medical tourism in the country provides great level relief, safety and security to the tourists which will regularly improve the tourism in the country. Many initiatives have been taken jointly by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Ministry of Tourism for maintaining the international standards in medical facilities to the tourists.
Terrorism implies the use of violence to terrorize a population or government for certain political, religious or ideological purpose. The threat of terrorism has become a worldwide concern with several parts of the world reeling under frequent terrorist strikes. With little concern for human lives, terrorists continue to strike with impunity, leaving a trail of death and destruction, wherever they choose to inflict their blows.
There have been several terror attacks in India, resulting in grievous loss of lives and properties. Here we are providing you some useful articles on terrorism under various categories according to varying words limits. You can choose any of them as per your need:
Article on Terrorism 1 (300 words)
Terrorism has emerged as a major threat to the unity and integrity of India. The masterminds of terror seek to achieve their objectives by creating an atmosphere of fear with a view to destabilize India. The major regions affected by terrorist activities in India include Jammu and Kashmir, east-central and south-central India (Naxalism) and the Seven Sisters (North-East).
Causes behind terror:
Unemployment has been one of the major causes due to which terrorist groups lure the young generation easily by providing them hoards of easy money. In return, the youngsters have to spread hatred, and indulge in bloodbath and killings on the street.
Poverty stricken young people belonging to poor socio-economic background are the ultimate target of the ISI, as they get easily influenced to do their bidding in return of easy money.
A Wide Network: India has already been ranked among the top ten terrorism affected countries in the world. Apart from radical terrorism affected states such as Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Tripura, Assam, Nagaland and Manipur, there are other states which have been victims of Naxalite terrorism, which emanated from Naxalbari village in West Bengal through a movement by the landless against the land owners of that village. This movement soon spread across the country.
Currently, there are various terrorist organizations operating in the country in a clandestine manner with their members hard to be recognized. The authorities have established their links with various international terrorism organizations most of which are being operated on a global level to supply arms, ammunition in different countries to destabilize the nation.
Poverty and unemployment are among the major reasons fuelling the growth of terrorism in India. If we want to curb terrorism, we are required to address the causes which have given rise to radicalization of youth in different parts of the country.
Article on Terrorism 2 (500 words)
Terrorism means the unlawful use of violence (or the threat of violence) intended to create terror for achieving a religious, economic, ideological or political goal, in deliberate disregard of the safety of victims.
According to a report issued by the Global Terrorism Index 2014, India was ranked among the top ten countries greatly affected by terrorism activities.
Causes of terrorism in India
There are several causes of terrorism in India. To begin with, there are political reasons for the growth of terrorism in India. This is primarily seen in The North-East region. The state government there have failed to control and manage large-scale illegal Muslim immigration from Bangladesh.
Economic causes too contribute to terrorism in India. These include rural unemployment, exploitation of landless labourers by those who own land and lack of land reforms. The major states affected by such causes include Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh. The absence of land reforms, rural unemployment, exploitation of landless labourers by land owners, economic grievances and perceptions of gross social injustice in these states have given rise to ideological terrorist groups such as the various Marxist/Maoist groups waging a war against the respective state government.
Thirdly, religious causes too lead to terrorism in India. Punjab witnessed the growth of terrorism when certain organisations of Sikhs led by Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale raised the demand for Khalistan, an independent state for Sikhs. Some elements belonging to different organisations shifted to terrorism for the creation of a separate state known as Khalistan for the Sikhs. Similarly, Jammu & Kashmir has been reeling under religious extremism which seeks to appropriate all rights for Muslim majority.
Agencies Fighting Terrorism in India
National Intelligence Wings: Among them, mention can be made of Intelligence Bureau, an internal intelligence agency under the Ministry of Home Affairs; the Research and Analysis Wing, an external intelligence agency under the Cabinet secretariat; the Defence Intelligence, and the intelligence directorate generals of the armed forces.
Physical security agencies: Among them, we have the Central Industrial Security Force, which is responsible for security at airports and sensitive establishments, and the National Security Guards (NSG), a specially trained force, which is called in the wake of emergencies such as hijacking, hostage-taking, etc. Then we have the Special Protection Group (SPG), which is responsible for the security of the prime minister and former prime ministers.
Paramilitary forces: Not to be left behind, forces such as Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Border Security Force (BSF), assist the police in counter-terrorism operations in times of need.
The Army: The Indian Army has a significant role in India’s fight against terrorism. It has a permanent position in J&K, which is bearing the brunt of large-scale infiltration from Pakistan and the presence of divisive elements within the troubled state.
At the immediate level, terrorism results in loss of lives and livelihood, and destruction of properties. But overall, terrorism creates a negative environment for the growth of trade and commerce, leading to huge losses, recession and unemployment. India needs a strong political will to fight the scourge of terrorism unitedly.
Article on Terrorism 3 (600 words)
Terrorism is an act of repeated violence committed by (semi-) clandestine individual, group or state actors, for peculiar, criminal or political reasons. The immediate human victims of terrorism are generally chosen randomly or selectively (representative or symbolic targets) from a target population, and serve as message generators.
India has long been a victim of terrorism. Terrorism in India is said to be largely sponsored by Pakistan, through its secret service and intelligence agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Pakistan has consistently denied its involvement, but in July 2016, the Indian Government released the data on a series of terror strikes in India since 2005 that claimed 707 lives and left over 3,200 injured, all pointing at Pakistan’s involvement.
Kidnapping: Terrorists’ favourite weapon
Kidnapping has been a favourite tactic employed by terrorist groups whether they are religious or non-religious for ransom. They have sought to make others agree to their demands through kidnapping. For instance, a Romanian diplomat was kidnapped by the Khalistan Commando Force, a Sikh terrorist group, in New Delhi in 1991. Similarly, the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front kidnapped some Israeli tourists in J&K in 1992.
Terrorist groups have affinity with terrorist groups of their ilk in other countries. For instance, the Marxist groups of India are aligned with Maoist groups of Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The separatist, terrorist Kashmiri outfits are connected with the religious, fundamentalist and jihadi organizations of Pakistan. Similar is the link between the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) with jihadi elements in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
The overseas diaspora too funds and supports home-grown terrorist groups both in moral and material terms. In its heydays, the Khalistan movement in Punjab found a resonance with the overseas Sikh community in the UK and Canada and flourished rapidly. The Mirpuris, migrants from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, who have settled in Western countries, are said to help Kashmiri organizations in all sorts of ways. Similarly, the Marxist groups within India find encouragement and support from the people of Marxist leanings within the overseas Indian community.
Causes of Terrorism
There are several causes of terrorism in India: political, economic, and religious.
The political cause of terrorism is primarily seen in Tripura and Assam where the political factors resulted in terrorism after the respective state governments failed to control and manage the large-scale illegal Muslim immigration from Bangladesh. The terrorist outfits capitalized upon the alienation of the daughters and sons of the soil who did not wish to share the opportunities of employment with the refugees.
Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh are prime examples of economic causes of terrorism in India. Factors such as rural unemployment, exploitation of landless labourers and lack of land reforms created perceptions of gross social injustice. All this led to the rise of ideological groups such as the several Marxist/Maoist groups waging a war against the State.
One of instance of religious terrorism was the growth of Sikh militancy in Punjab for the creation of an independent Sikh nation called Khalistan. In Jammu and Kashmir, the dream of a separate Kashmir nation has drawn many Muslim organizations together against India.
Terrorist activities have extremely adverse implications for any country, India being no exception. Terrorism poses a deadly threat to the unity and integrity of the nation. The society, media and political parties must make it a common cause to fight the menace of terrorism in a cohesive and united spirit. We have to show to the world that we are not a soft state in dealing with any terrorist strikes on our soil.
Article on Terrorism 4 (800 words)
Terrorism can be defined as an intentional act of terror or violence on the part of clandestine individual/s, group or state actors to inflict death, injury or property damage, or induce fear among its victims. Terrorism seeks to take refuse in posturing of political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or any other nature.
The victims of violence are generally chosen from a target population, to serve a message. Terrorism poses a grave threat to the citizens of India.
Terrorism: Spreading tentacles in India
India has been tackling the menace of terrorism ever since its independence. Jammu and Kashmir has always been a troubled state with Pakistan using it as a means of waging a proxy war against India. The North-East region has been the hotbed of part insurgent-part terrorist movements. The nation also had to grapple with the pro-Khalistan movements in Punjab in the eighties though now the situation has returned to normal there.
Causes of terrorism
Political factors led to insurgency-cum-terrorism especially in Assam and Tripura. The governments of these states failed to control large-scale illegal immigration of Muslims from Bangladesh. It resulted in insurgent movements that raised the demand of economic benefits for the sons and daughters of the soil.
Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Bihar are prime examples of economic causes behind terrorism. Against the backdrop of the absence of land reforms, rural unemployment, exploitation of landless labourers by land owners, etc, the economic grievances of people of the states multiplied, giving rise to ideological terrorist groups such as the various Marxist/Maoist groups operating under different names. They consider the ideology of Marx, Engel, Mao, Lenin as the only valid economic path. All of them resort to terrorist activities to reclaim social justice for the people.
In J&K, there is an unmistakable religious angle to terrorism. Pakistan has been making consistent efforts to cause religious polarization in the state. The state has various pro-Pak terrorist organizations such as Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen.
Funding of Terrorism
Terrorist and insurgent groups in India receive funding from various sources such as Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI); religious, fundamentalist and pan-Islamic jihadi organizations in Pakistan; ostensibly charitable organizations in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia; the mafia group led by Dawood Ibrahim who operates from Karachi, Pakistan.
Sometimes, terrorists resort to extortions and ransom payments for releasing hostages, and collect contributions — voluntary or forced — from the people living in the area where they operate. Narcotics smuggling is another source of funding for terrorist organizations and they use informal hawala channel to transmit funds.
Terrorist Attacks in India
Terrorists have struck time and again in India. Some of such incidents are as follows:
- 1985 bombing of an Air India flight from Canada to India, killing all 329 people on board.
- 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts, which killed about 250 civilians.
- 2001 Attack on Indian Parliament on 13 December 2001, in which 9 policemen and parliament staff were killed, besides all five terrorists who were identified as Pakistani nationals.

- 2011 High Court bombing on Wednesday, 7 September 2011 at outside Gate No. 5 of the Delhi High Court, killing 12 people and injuring 76.
- 2013 Naxal attack in Darbha valley, Chhattisgarh, which killed 28 people.
- 2015 Gurdaspur attack in Dina Nagar, Gurdaspur, Punjab, killing 10 people.
- 2016 attack at PathankotAir Force Station, killing 7 people.
- 2016 Pampore attack, claiming 8 lives.
- 2016 Uri attack that left 20 dead.
- 2016 Baramulla attack and 2016 Handwara attack at Rashtriya Riffles Camp.
Conclusion: Terrorism presents a grave challenge to the people and government of India. If we want to effectively deal with this menace, the entire nation needs to stand united to fight the perpetrators of terror. All political parties need to rise above their partisan lines to give a befitting reply to terrorists and their masterminds operating from across the borders. India has to demonstrate that it is not a soft state but a capable nation with zero tolerance to any terrorist activities carried out by the enemies of the nation.
