Message Of The Former Chief Secretary


Mr. Rajiv Kumar
Former Chief Secretary U.P.

I am pleased to know that a comprehensive kit containing tourism literature on Kushinagar, this book, a video file and a brochure has been prepared for release by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Sri Yogi Adityanath on the World Tourism Day. These are being supplemented by a dynamic website on Kushinagar which is likely to enhance the awareness in the media, among the pilgrims, tourists and the people of Kushinagar.

Kushinagar is the sacred land where Lord Buddha attained Mahaparinirvana. There could not have been a better offering than this book on Kushinagar for this auspicious occasion. I am aware that information on Kushinagar is scant and this comes as a boon for those who are looking for a book on Kushinagar. This book blends authoritative information with vibrant pictures.

This is indeed a great effort towards promotion of tourism in Kushinagar. To my mind, this book is a landmark in its own right. I offer my congratulations and best wishes for this thoughtful project and hope that this helps enhance the tourist inflow into Kushinagar.
