Art of Travel - Sita
13 August 2020


Dear All


We, at the Destination Knowledge Centre (DKC), have taken the extended lockdown in India due to the Corona Virus as an opportunity to enhance the bond between different teams and verticals of the organisation.

Bridging the gap between what client wants and what is on offer is an important topic that we have addressed during this time. We have conducted extensive virtual interactions with teams catering to different markets to learn about their specific requirements to mould our experiences better. These sessions have helped us understand each market in depth and their unique needs whether it is exclusive luxury experiences or inexpensive out-of-the-ordinary value additions. Team DKC is now collating the information and in the process of creating curated and market specific experiences.

We have been organising webinars on different topics with our in house explorers including itineraries covering the Indian Subcontinent. From the basic Golden Triangle and Ranthambore to Special Interest itineraries, we have endeavoured to cover every corner of the Indian Subcontinent, share our first-hand knowledge and give our colleagues glimpses of these destinations. One of the most crucial topics that we have dealt with in these sessions is Sustainability and the role our organisation is playing to promote it through tourism.

We have also invited specialists to speak on and participate in panel discussions on a variety of topics ranging from textiles, art, architecture, wildlife, and antiquities etc to help our colleagues understand India’s potential as a tourism destination better. We have opened these engaging sessions up to our overseas business partners with great success and positive feedback.

This is what Team DKC has done since March 23 till July 16, 2020:

No. of webinars: 82
No. of attendees: 17,596
No. of session-hours: 101.08 hours

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy Everyone and see you in our sessions (Monday to Thursday)

Husna Tara’s Story of Bengal

Husna-Tara grew up with the best of both worlds: born and brought up in England, she spent eight years of her childhood at a boarding school in India. She returned to England at 16 to complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Oxford. During a gap-year backpacking expedition around the world, she met Anshuman Prakash, a fourth generation tea planter and six years later after a Natural Science and Post Graduate Certificate of Education degree at the University of Cambridge, she returned to India to marry him. After two years on a tea plantation in Kerala where tourism was growing, Anshuman and Husna-Tara conceived the idea of opening up tea estates to visitors, a bit like vineyards do in other parts of the world. In the summer of 2002, Husna-Tara and Bronwyn Latif, a talented designer from Delhi, lovingly restored The Burra Bungalow at the Glenburn Tea Estate in Darjeeling and then never looked back. Her latest venture is a new boutique hotel called The Glenburn Penthouse, an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of historic Calcutta.
