Botanical Garden Ooty entrance fee need not be so expensive
It is British People soon after built their first stone house ( the first house) they have created with great difficulty Ooty Botanical Gardens for the residents of Ooty and visitors of Ooty at no enterace fee. Now one has to think twice to enter Ooty BOTANICAL GARDEN it's so expensive. This applies to boat house and other sight seeing spots. Park and other sight seeing places is not meant for making revenue. This has not collected by British who created why do you collect.
Collect only Rs5 for entry reasonable not Rs 25.
those who come to Ooty all are not stinking rich.Most of them are middle class and poor more
I think we need to appreciate the cost involved in maintaining the garden, especially with flowers during the season. The cost charged for tourist elsewhere in europen, american as well south east asia is atleast four or five times more than our charges. more
IN THOSE DAYS THE BRITISH LOOTED US AND POST 1947, THE POLITICIANS ARE LOOTING US..!!. That is all. The British brought the Hindu temples under the Govt. control to ensure that the spread of Chritianity is unhindered and the Wealth of Hindu temples is kept " under check ". Later, the Indian Politicians found it easy to dabble with the Wealth of the Temples and its Real estate. They even had found a way to make some quick money by STEALING the Centuries Old Idols and selling them in foreign countries. Thus what those British colonisers had done is being nicely perpetuated by the present day Politicians. more
It is nice that some one brought this issue to the Public to think and rethink. If you ask a Babu he will say we have to incur expenditure to main the place so we need money. Has any one checked what is trhe income and what has been spent in what way. There is simply big NO. Forget what Britishers did. What we are doing to manage such wonderful Botanical Gardens created? We are not able to create one . The numbers will be negligible. It is worth pondering to make the entrance fee at least to Rs 10/- more
A moderate view , appreciate . The collected Money
should be accountable . It is public money . more
People who can travel all the way to Ooty to enjoy the climate etc. can afford more then Rs 25. Each and everything should not be made as an issue. The trend is fast growing and is distressing. more
Do you realise that the British stole all our wealth & destroyed our native infrastructure replacing it with infrastructure that served their interests while destroying ours? And you sir are lauding them for "not charging" entry fee? more
