Why is September 27th designated as World Tourism Day?
The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) was established on this day. On this day in 1970, the UNWTO established its rules. The organization has a big part in promoting travel all around the world. As a result, its founding is seen as a significant turning point in tourism. India’s economy and culture, which consistently promotes “Atithi Devo Bhava,” both heavily rely on tourism.
Tourism and the Birth of Technology
It’s hard to imagine a time without some form of communication with other people or places. At one point in history, there was no way of telling if you were experiencing a dream or reality- other than experiencing it yourselves. This is one reason why language became so important to technology in the early days: in order for humans to implement objects that work for them (rather than the animals for which they were used), they needed to be able to communicate with other people and things around them. In the late 18th century, there was no such thing as a universal language, so signs and symbols became popular ways to communicate with others.

The World’s First Tunnel
Mont Cenis Tunnel, early 1900s. No photos are permitted inside the tunnel today.
It probably comes as a surprise to most people that one of mankind’s greatest inventions was not a building, but instead an underground structure- known today as the Mont Cenis Tunnel. Built between 1857 and 1871 under direct orders from Napoleon III, it is still used by cars today for transportation across the Alps Mountain range on the border between France and Italy.
Plumbing and the Ganges
The Ganpati festival in Mumbai, India. Hundreds of thousands of people gathered together in the city to offer prayers for good fortune and safety for their families. This photo was taken in 2002.
The modern-day flush toilet is one of the most widely used inventions: a device that prevents waste from polluting our environment through decaying matter, retaining it so it can be disposed of properly. It’s likely that humans had toilets before they had plumbing in their homes, but once they started building bigger dwellings and living in more crowded areas, they needed to have something to dispose of the waste from these dwellings.
