World Tourism Day

Picture - Deccan Chronicle

September 27 is World Tourism Day. Foreigners
in an autorickshaw. (Rickshaw is short from Japanese
jinrikisha. jin = man, riki = power, sha = carriage)
You hardly see any human powered cycle rickshaws on
the streets anymore. More and more foreigners come to
Hyderabad to study. I was surprised to know that students
from the following countries are studying English here -
Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Ukraine, Korea, China,
Thailand, Mongolia, Nigeria, Kenya among others. Will the
world be speaking Indian English? ;)

They are all looking in different directions. Just goes to prove that there's so much to see wherever you look in India. Tee! Hee!
