    I am so glad to read this, Indrani!! A worthwhile project indeed! There is so much incredible history in your country, so much incredible beauty and it would be such loss for everyone — certainly in your country but for all the many travelers from all over the world.

    I hope this program is a success. Anything that will be help with the preservation on national monuments and antiquities should be encouraged.

  8. The adoption program sounds like a great idea for maintaining the many ancient sites you have in India plus give lots of people jobs.

  9. Beautiful image, and a project so needed.

  10. Great idea. Hope the program is a success. Have a great week ahead!

    I am all for it. Where is this image from? its beautiful!

  13. Thanks friends I am so glad you all agree positively with this initiative. Hope it sees grand success.

  14. welcome initiative. But no billboards / hoardings / chest-thumping, please. There is likely to be a code by which this kind of adoption is made socially purposeful, and not just a token CSR feather-in-the-cap.

  15. Seems this could be a good program. Lets hope it gets implemented well.

    This is a great idea! The corporate funding will ensure the monuments are preserved and looked after .

    Great idea there and for elsewhere in India. I would love to see many haveli get adopted.

  18. Now that's really a great initiative..wishing it a grand success..

  19. Well thought about idea. Hopefully it materializes.

  20. Excellent initiative,hopefully we can preserve our treasures from getting defaced/scribbled on and destroyed

  21. Thanks for sharing this valuable information about which no such notification came to my desk. It shall be much better if on the same line adoption of manuscripts are taken up.

  22. Great initiative.. Should be followed by other states too..

  23. nice initative by the government

    wonderful initiative and much needed. Heard about the destruction at Hampi? It's rather sad to see this sorry state 🙁

    Was away for a week, glad to be back online into this world now:)

  25. Great initiative and a way to develop sustainable tourism, hope it is successful and companies respond positively. Really should be rolled out to other states as well, too many historical sites in India suffer from neglect and lack of funds.

  26. Hope WB Goverment will also be part of this. We have so many historical monuments and destinations which are neglected and can be reviewed as a tourist destination.

  27. Adopting animals and allowing them live freely and safely is such a noble thing to do. I am so happy to see the initiative being made 🙂

    Awesome. Great Idea

    Nice concept, if operated properly. Tourism is one area which needs attention. Because once implemented properly, it may become a cash cow for most of the state's revenues. Like Kerala, Tourism has helped Kerala and the innovative marketing campaigns led this to be a success. Likewise Private partnerships can be helpful as u said, will improve the infrastructure and the overall amenities at the location. Moreover for the corporates, this is a solution where they can showcase that they are giving something back to the society. Win-Win situation for all.

  30. Great initiative

    Great idea. Where I live there are programs to adopt streams. Volunteers who adopt a stream keep them clean of rubbish and check for pollutants. Different from this but I guess similar in that the idea is to adopt something worth preserving whether in nature or ancient architecture.
