Moment of pride for Rajasthan Tourism Industry!! Rajvir Singh Dundlod from Rajasthan is awarded by IATO (Indian Association of Tour Operators) for his great contribution in Indian tourism Industry at the IATO Hall of fame’ award at its 30th annual convention held in New Delhi recently.
Every year, IATO selects one or more persons, who have made enormous contribution to the industry for the “Hall of Fame award”. Some of the past recipients include legendary names like Rai Bahadur, MS Oberoi, Sir Edmund Hillary, Pandit Ravi Shankar, Maharaja Gaj Singh and Dr Mohammad Ali. Rajvis Singh Dhundlod is honoured for putting Rajasthan on the Indian tourism map with his out-of-the-box thinking. According to IATO, “His pioneering efforts made sure that Rajasthan got high-end tourists making an invaluable contribution to the state’s exchequer. Heir to an illustrious name and a princely state, Rajvir Singhji took it upon himself to be the first to offer Rajputana hospitality to tourists from all over the world by opening out the palaces and lesser known villages of the region.”
Dundlod was recognized by IATO for single-handedly making the lunar landscapes of the desert state of Rajasthan, as well its grand palaces and wild life sanctuaries, the stuff of modern legend and a must-visit for tourists across the globe besides pioneering some of the most widely practiced aspects of modern tourism.
Much respect, applaud and many congratulations to him from Rajasthan Tourism Buzz.
