Part 3 – Follow Up Questions
1. Do people in your country like to spend holidays abroad or at home?
India is a diverse country. There is a lot to see and do in India. People in my country like to spend holidays by visiting many places in India, and also abroad. It also depends on their pocket and the time they can afford for holidaying. There is so much diversity within India that it seems like visiting a foreign country at times. For example, if a person from the north India, visits the South, he experiences different culture, different food, different language and enjoys himself at the fraction of cost of what he would spend on visiting a foreign country.
2. What are the benefits of spending the holiday abroad and in own country?
Which one do you prefer? Holidays abroad are a much broader experience of a new culture, food and language. But domestic holidays are easier on the pocket and also very beneficial in many ways. Holidays abroad are also a status symbol, as they can be afforded by few people. Holidaying in ones own country is safer than holidaying abroad. I prefer holidaying abroad, but it seems like sour grapes for the time being.
3. What do we have to arrange before going to holiday?
We have to arrange a lot of things. We must see that the rail, road or air tickets have been confirmed. Then we must also find out about the weather of that place and pack our clothes accordingly. We must also make a list of places to visit in that place. A well planned holiday can have pleasant memories for a lifetime.
4. Do you like long holidays or short holidays?
I like long holidays as they can help me unwind the stress of everyday life plus holidays help me in focussing on other good things in life like reading, art etc
5. Do you think modern lifestyle gives people enough time for leisure?
Modern lifestyle is very stressful and due to intense competition people hardly get time for themselves leave alone leisure time.
