Aurangabad, 25 Nov (Kalyani Pawar) – About 70% of Indian population live in rural India and so the concept of “Rural Agricultural Tourism” is becoming very popular today. Along with foreigners Indians living in cities are getting attracted towards it, the famous Junnar Agri Tourism model founder Manoj Hadvale said.
Hadvale was guiding the presence during a seminar jointly organised by MGM Journalism College and Yashvantrao Chavan Pratishthan on the topic “The New Face Of Rural India: Rural Prosperity Tourism”.
The seminar was organised on the occassion of 35th remembrance day of State’s first Chief Minister Yashvantrao Chavan.
During this program secretary of MGM Ankushrao Kadam, Professor Prataprao Borade, Santosh Tendulkar, Principal Dr. Rekha Shelke and students were present.
Mr. Hadvale Further said. “Farm House culture is old and Chandrashekhar Bhadasavale from Mumbai introduced this concept in the 1980s. It has recently become a business model. According to GDP 50% of the population is dependent on agriculture, but the people living in the city, whose previous generation was in the field, or whose agriculture was concerned, do not allow their next generation to connect with the soil. And this same class is becoming the main consumer of agricultural tourism. The country of rural India is a special attraction for foreigners, tourists.An attempt is made to discover the novelty. Therefore, unemployed youths should turn to agricultural tourism.
