Julia Roberts’ Latest Film - 'Eat, Pray, Love' Inspires Meditation Tours in India

Whether you are a Julia Roberts fan or you are keenly interested in Yoga and meditation, you sure have a new inspiration to do it all in India. Julia Robert’s much hyped forthcoming film with the name of 'Eat, Pray, Love' is inspiring tour operators on a large scale to offer meditation tourism packages in India. The film deals with a long cultural and spiritual trip to India by the protagonist. When merchandises and jewelry products are being launched with the film’s name, why should the Indian tourism industry remain far behind? But, whatever the reason, it’s definitely going to give meditation tourism in India a significant lift, even though it seems to be only a part of the 'Eat, Pray, Love Experience' when there are two other competitive destinations in the list like Italy and Thailand.
