It gives you a good feeling when you read in the newspapers how patients from abroad come to hospitals in India and get themselves treated at a fraction of expenses they will have incurred elsewhere. Write a letter in 120- 150 words to the editor of a national daily describing the importance of medical tourism for India.

Subject: Importance of Medical Tourism for India
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the readers regarding the importance of medical tourism for India.
I read an article in your newspaper on how the patients from abroad are getting treated in the hospitals of India at a very low expense when compared to any other nation. I am impressed and being an Indian, I feel proud when I read such news.
India has quite a cost effective and efficient medical sector which the government should promote to attract more foreign patients. In addition, world class medical facilities and infrastructure are run by skilled physician and nursing practitioners, providing comprehensive solution for all medical needs. This benefits both Indian and foreign patients.
In conclusion, medical tourism is important for India because not only we earn foreign exchange from it, but also treating foreign patients enhances image of India, further improving relations with other countries.
I hope medical tourism is encouraged by the Government of India.
