Need for Travel

Do people need to travel these much?

As the world is becoming a Global Village, the scope/area of involvements for individuals and resultant requirement of travels are being augmented steadily. Over and above all other reasons, traveling a lot is widely considered as a matter of pride. This is also one of the factors that prompt people to set out for travel without considering the necessity. But I think that an intelligent planning of day to day business of individuals as well as business houses and proper use of information technology can save people from the difficulties of unnecessary travels. This will quite naturally pose another question; “is traveling that much a difficult task?”

In olden days traveling was really difficult chiefly because of the non availability of reliable and safe conveyance. When sophisticated technologies have begun to play on roads, rails, at sea and of course in the air, traveling has become a passion. However, now there are sufficient grounds to suspect whether we are going back to the difficult times; definitely not because of the old reasons. The reasons for the present difficulties of a traveler are multi facet and more serious ones. Unstable costs, security risks, tiresome procedures due to security threats, increased health risks including epidemics…all these and more add to the worries of a traveler. It doesn’t mean a no-travel policy; on the other hand we have to practice reasonable restrains and refrains – to make the public transport systems and public places less crowded and inviting to all those travel.

Higher Education, General Education and Local Self Government Departments of Kerala State Government in India have jointly launched an Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) as part of State Skill Development Programme to enhance the employability of students passing out of Higher Secondary Schools (+2) as well as Arts and Science Colleges in the state.

 Additional Skill Acquisition Programme has been conceived as an effective remedy for this situation. The whole idea is that the students will be given skill training, in addition to their regular academic programme/curriculum, in the crucial sectors as being demanded by the Industry.

Wayanad; everlasting memories of a travel

Wayanad, a northern district of Kerala state (my state) in India is always a passion for our friend Nelson, who has worked there for many years before joining us in Thiruvananthapuram, the State Head Quarters of Kerala. Through his narrations we (the other friends) have also got attracted to the place. Usually every year, we conduct two-three days trekking tour. This time we have decided to select Wayanad. Anil Kumar, Anoop, Nelson, Dileep, Sabu, Gopikrishnan and me (Anil Prasad) arrived at Kalpetta, the head quarters of Wayanad district in the misty and cold early morning of 9th October, 2009 by KSRTC bus from Kozhikode. We were travelling the whole night from Thiruvananthapuram to Kozhikoe by train. Another friend Asokan would join as there. Asokan would also arrange a rented van for our local trips.
