New Travel Pics Site

I have launched a travel and tourism photograhy webiste named and the same was launched on Sep 27, 2010 World Tourism Day.
It covers certain regions of India and also International destinations.
There is good coverage of Maharashtra, Panchgani, Mahabaleshwar, Ganpatipule, Ahmadnagar, Boisar, Silvassa, Karnataka, TamilNadu, Goa, etc
As an add on it has Cricketing stars and music stars of the 80’s autographs of some stars and nature and abstract photographs too.
The govt. is going to give a great impetus to tourism and infrastructure in India for the next 10 years.
The idea is to sustain and enhance this site and add on new destinations by receiving advertising on the spaces that are available on various pages.
By visiting this site, the community can view the pictures, as they have one line or paragraph descriptions of each picture and its story. Do visit the Mumbai, Austria, Switzerland and Portugal pages, as a picture tells you more than what thousand words would.
Kind regards Adi Daruwalla.
