For some people, the whole point of vacation is a break from the humdrum of urban life and an escape from the maddening crowd. If you fall into this bracket of travelers, you would be more than happy to know that you can have a whole island to yourself. In addition to majestic hill stations and deciduous green forests, South India is also endowed with several islands. Kerala’s Munroe Island is a cluster of 8 islands located in the Kollam district. Situated in the stunning backdrop of magical backwaters, the island is surrounded by Kallada River and Ashtamudi River. The island offers an astounding view of the lush green coconut plantations. Tamil Nadu’s Quibble Island is a small island formed by the Adyar River and its tributaries. The fact that it is not very far away from Chennai, makes it a perfect gateway for short weekend vacations. Karnataka’s Netrani Island is situated in the temple town of Murudeshwara, and also known as ‘Pigeon Island’ as it is inhabited by a large population of pigeons. This heart-shaped island is the perfect destination in India if you want to experience underwater life through snorkeling and diving. Andhra Pradesh’s Bhavani Island is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. Situated in Vijayawada, the island is one of the largest islands on the Krishna River. The vast expanse of the island is perfectly conducive for water sports and a good choice for a serene weekend outing.

While sexual assaults in shady and deserted places are quite rampant, even places which are usually perceived safe for women like international flights are not immune to sexual assaults. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reported that it had recorded 38 cases of in-flight sexual assault in 2014. The latest crime data from FBI indicates the number increased to 63 in 2017. Recently, a woman was molested by a co-passenger on an international flight bound for India from the Netherlands. Considering the rising incidence of molestation and sexual assault on international flights, the fear of single women traveling on their own is evident. But taking a few measures will lower your chances of becoming a victim of molestation. Most of the offenders test their victims on the pretext of accidental brushing against them. In case of such incident, even if it is a genuine case of accidental brushing, communicate your discomfort to the person. Despite the communication and warning, if the person persists with such behavior, do report the incident to the cabin crew and ask them to record the person’s identity and put the offender on notice. If you are traveling without any company, it is highly recommended that you avoid taking alcohol and sleeping pills since the risk of molestation and sexual assault is very high when the victim is on sleeping pill or not sober. If a minor is traveling unaccompanied, try to reserve an aisle seat so that flight attendants can keep a closer watch on them. In the absence of company, children are more vulnerable to sexual abuse during air travel. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act 2018 that President Donald Trump signed recently, includes a resolution to set up a task force to investigate sexual harassment cases in the air travel industry.

The frail bodies of old people always run on the high risk of sudden onset of serious medical conditions. The absence of proper medical attention in such a situation puts the lives of senior citizens in jeopardy. Kolkata’s Dr. Dhires Kumar Choudhary realized the need for a 24/7 clinic for the elderly long ago. In 1995 despite being a student, he started the organization ‘Banchbo (Survival)’ along with few like-minded students. The objective of the organization was to attend the medical needs of senior citizens round the clock. Eventually, they started arranging for home-based medical care and try to reach patients at their residence in less than 30 minutes of receiving the call. Then they started a weekly medical camp for the underprivileged. Between 1999 and 2000, they ran various health camps in the interior areas of Kolkata. Over the years, some of the people with whom the organization started left it due to various circumstances. It was then Dhires realized that the key is to look for things to sustain the organization in the long run. Dr. Dhires Kumar Choudhary aims to replicate the 24/7 clinic model throughout the city and extend a similar model across the country.

(FYI, not an endorsement) Undeniably, Mumbai never feels boring. Right when you think you are done exploring the city, it entices you with new surprises. The latest additions to must-see places in Mumbai are two new floating restaurants named the Queensline Sea YAH and the Queensline Neverland. The cruises are docked at the Gateway of India and Domestic Cruise Terminal and will ferry its customers till Marine Drive, Elephanta and Kanheri Island. Open to guests from 12 pm till midnight IST, each floatel can accommodate 450 people at a time. Due to the volatile nature of the Mumbai sea, the floatels will not operate during monsoon. The floatels are designed with an upper and a lower deck with two bars and one restaurant where customers can hold private parties, lunches or dinners. Considering the incident of the floatel Art Deck Bar which capsized in Bandra and claimed 15 lives, several safety measures have been installed on the cruises. Both the cruises are equipped with 500 life jackets and 15 rafts, and additionally, two marine staff members are posted on each ship. Further, each guest will be given a QR code to trace their location during the voyage. If you are looking for a new place and crave an amazing dining experience in Mumbai, you can consider these floatels.

Rural women of India make immense contributions towards reviving the dying handicraft traditions and globalizing them through entrepreneurship. Pabiben in the Kukadsar village of Gujarat’s Kutch region represents those women and their collective struggle from making the ends meet to achieving something extraordinary. Being the eldest child of a widow, Pabiben would fetch water to the villagers for a meager wage of Rs 1 per family in order to meet the family expenses. At a young age, she learned the art of weaving traditional embroidery named Rabari, unique to her community. When the craft of weaving was dying in her village, she set out on a mission to keep it alive. She reinvented the art with the machine application of readymade elements, which came to be known as ‘Hari Jari’. The first accessory she weaved out of it was a shopping bag. It was a hit in the village markets. With steady support of her husband, Pabiben launched her line of embroidered merchandise online, Pabiben.com and mobilized women in her community to join her. Today, her website sells a great selection of products featuring Rabari embroidery, like quilts, cushion covers, handbags, purses, and other home décor items. Her embroidery work has become a rage in international markets and featured in films across geographies.

At a time when even attending school was a distant dream, Thanjavur Santhanakrishna (TS) Kanaka inspired a generation of young girls to pursue a career in the medical field and excel in this domain. TS Kanaka was Asia’s first female neurosurgeon and the third female neurosurgeon in the world. Born on March 31, 1932, in Chennai, her parents believed that irrespective of the gender, a child should be educated. The human body and its complexity fascinated her at very young and consequently, she decided to study for medicine. While she was pursuing her bachelors, her brother-in-law developed seizures and was taken to Dr. B Ramamurthi for treatment. Ramamurthi was one of the first neurosurgeons of India. It was during that period, she developed an interest in neurosurgery. Whenever she accompanied her brother-in-law for treatment, the inquisitive medical student in her used to shoot several questions to Dr.Ramamurthi. One day he asked Kanaka to finish her MBBS then he would teach her everything about neurosurgery. Eventually, she became Asia’s first female neurosurgeon and the first Indian neurosurgeon to perform chronic electrode implants in the brain. In addition, she pioneered the performance of deep brain stimulation in 1975 and received immense recognition in the medical community for her work in stereotactic surgery (stereotaxy), a minimally invasive form of surgical intervention. Post her retirement, she set up the Sri Santhanakrishna Padmavathi Health Care and Research Foundation, which offers free treatment to the economically disadvantaged. On November 16, 2018, she breathed her last at the age of 86.
