I think that tourism in India is increasing because Indian culture is attracting the visitors all over the world. People from all over are eager to know Indian culture,its customs and tradition. The people residing in polar/cold countries love Indian climate. They even like celebrating festivals in India. Now-a-days people also get married in Indian style. India is best place for shopping.

Before I start, I would like to thank Mitali lad for posting this topic. It is an odd duck, and I just kept coming back to it, considering what I would say in this. So thank you Mitali, for posting this strange and obscure debate.

>>People from all over are eager to know Indian culture,its customs and tradition.<<

Culturally speaking, India is partially different from other countries. Because of it's geography it revives many immigrants, as well as invaders in ages past, earning the title of 2nd most populated country of the world. That earns it a sort of mix of cultures, a melting pot of ideals and customs that is gathered from the surrounding nations. However, their culture is somewhat hard to grasp, an acquired taste. Most of the cultural head points are in reclusive temples or mosques, so they are not as welcoming to outsiders or tourist as other cultures might be. Indian culture is also founded heavily on religion, and is still influenced by it today. That can also push visitors away, becoming isolated in a surging country of strong religion, and might be almost scary for some. In 1992 to 1993, religious tension erupted when Hindu and Muslims clashed in street riots all over Bombay, resulting in at least 1400 deaths. Even now, tensions between those two religions are high, and risk erupting into rioting again.

>>people residing in polar/cold countries love Indian climate.<<

The Indian climate is not all warm and humid, which what might attract visitors from colder nations. Its climate ranges from empty deserts in the western region, alpine areas and even glaciers hail in the north, and humid jungles in its southern region. It is not especially warm either, its summer only lasting two short months before heading into a long wet monsoon season. Therefore, it would not attract people ranging from cold regions as much as you stated.

>>They even like celebrating festivals in India.<<

American Heritage defines festivals as:
"An occasion for feasting or celebration, especially a day or time of religious significance that recurs at regular intervals."

Festivals can be celebrated in any nation. As you have not specified if these festivals are of Indian heritage or otherwise, there is no reason to go to any country to celebrate a festival unless it involves that country directly. Would I, American born celebrate Christmas in India? Perhaps if relatives lived in India, but you did not specify that either.

>>Now-a-days people also get married in Indian style.<<
Despite having no evidence to fortify this claim, this statement is questionable, at best. Why would Indian marriage be any more appealing than marriage of another country? If you were not born of Indian heritage nor your wife or husband, there would be no reason to marry in Indian custom.

>>India is best place for shopping.<<
https://www.cia.gov...
According to the CIA fact book, the United States has the "largest and most technologically powerful economy in the world" which makes that statement false.

As my opponent's profile does say that she is from India, it would not be unusual to try and promote her own country. That shows pride in one's birthplace and I admire that. Still facts are facts, and India is not increasing in tourism. It is one of the most popular places for tourism, I will not deny that. However, has it become more popular? Most likely, no.
