Jharkhand Tourism Development Corporation, Government of Jharkhand in collaboration with IHM, Ranchi is hosting an online story telling contest for all the adventure and travel enthusiasts
Great stories move us. They have the power to tap into our emotions and inspire a sense of wanderlust. Stories have the potential to take us from the glow of our various screens to places across the world. In the travel and tourism context, it's not hard to imagine the positive impact of good storytelling: after all, memorable travel experiences are all about stories - stories of the local communities and their cultural traditions, stories told by the expert local guides, and stories about the travelers themselves that become part of the travel experiences.
