There is no doubt that travelling broadens one's outlook and makes one more knowledgeable and wiser. We learn much more in a short span of time than we would ever learn in the whole of our school life. One learns more by experience than by being taught or by learning from books. World's best magazines or newspapers cannot provide the knowledge of, or the thrilling excitement of seeing the beautiful historical monuments such as the 'Taj Mahal'. To travel in one's own country and see its hills, mountains, rivers, valleys and forests and to experience its different climatic conditions increases the geographical knowledge of an individual. On the other hand it arouses in us a sense of belonging and love and unity when we meet people of different castes, religion, speaking different languages,following different customs and tradition.Even History, becomes interesting on visiting the places where Shivaji was crowned or where Tipu Sultan was betrayed and killed. We feel proud of our rich heritage. Beyond India there lies a vast wonderful world. It would indeed be wonderful interesting and educative to visit these foreign countries, experience their different climate and visit different historical places. Apart from natural and historical sights, travelling enables us to meet people of different races and faces that make an individual open-minded and tolerant. One's outlook becomes broad and progressive. Travelling removes prejudices and builds universal goodwill and fellow feeling. It helps us to become a citizen of the world. Fortunately, today travelling has become much easier with the increase of new modes of transport and the emergence of thousands of travel agencies for those who cannot set up their own travellings plans. Government should grant more facilities for the benefit of the people who cannot afford to travel and enjoy the pleasures of travelling. Those who can, should do as much travelling as possible.
