During our travels, we come across many kinds of people, speaking different languages and having a different set of beliefs, and we learn to move with such people. Travelling, therefore, reinforces a friendship between people of different regions of our country. We probably learn other languages, which is an advantage.
Travelling helps us see the historic monuments of our country. The Taj Mahal, the Qutab Minar, the Gol Gumbuz, the Sun Temple at Konark, the Ajanta and Ellora Caves, the Stupas at Saranath, the Triveni Sangam at Allahabad, Lord Balaji at Tirupati Hills and the temple city of Varanasi are only a few things which remind us of our historic past. A person who travels from the Kanyakumari at the southern tip of India to the foothills of the Himalayas becomes a true Indian. He is infused with the spirit of the past and the great thoughts and deeds of the earlier generations of people. This is worth more than all the knowledge books can impart us all our life.
