“Tourism is very obviously run by those who have not understood its basics. This begins with the Chief Minister goes down to the minister of tourism to the director of tourism and more and more notably the chairman of the GTDC who has never encountered notions and theories of tourism ever before in his life. Each new announcement made under the aegis of the tourism department sounds more absurd. Such is foolishness.”
Goa’s first ice-cold amusement facility, Snow Park, was recently launched at Baga, Calangute.

Promoted by Jupiter Enterprises, this is the group’s second such park, the first one being in Surat, Gujarat.
