AN EARTH DAY APPEAL:
Did you know...
...#Plastic waste takes anywhere between 500-1000 years to degrade.
...50% of the plastic we consume is single-use plastic.
...Only a very small percentage of the tons of plastic that is produced ever gets recycled; most of it ends up in our oceans.

At the outset, a lot is being done to drive awareness around environment conservation but I feel we are not doing our part in reducing our plastic footprint, and this is mostly because we are NOT fighting our daily habits and making small lifestyle changes that can REALLY make a difference.

So I have put together 10 very simple, cost effective ways to DITCH THAT DRASTIC PLASTIC

The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre...99 years on

On this day 99 years ago, General Dyer & his armed troops fired 1,650 bullets into the hearts of innocent #Indians. This was the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, one that the #British government hasn't yet apologized for. I bring you stories from my visit there earlier this year.

You REALLY need to get your hands on An Era of Darkness by Shashi Tharoor

It was only after I saw #ShashiTharoor 's viral #OxfordUnion  2015 speech that I realized how little I knew about the colonial exploits of the #British  in #India . Tharoor turned his speech into a book An Era of Darkness that delves into well-researched truths of the Empire and its rapacity to Indians for over two centuries. In my blog I share some of the facts that absolutely shocked me, as well as some stories on why this hits close to home. I hope, in reading this blog post, you will read Tharoor's book.

Just Me Traveling with Myself
For someone who loves to travel, doing it as a solitary activity was never something I contemplated or fantasized about. The joy of exploring, I thought, was doubled when shared with someone. But the sense of exploring on your own is a whole different feeling. On this, I pen my thoughts in my latest post. And it seems so fitting as the 100th post for my blog!

MY ODE TO ZANZIBAR

A 20,000 year old home to humans
The Persians, Arabs and Indians
Ah 'karibu' to Zanzibar
The Africa you've only heard of from afar

The Arabs of Oman the locals liked
Imperial Europeans the brave-hearts despised
A history of slave trade surmised
Pride in Masa'ai culture has since survived

Here flourishes the sacred Jozani forest
Where green mambas, antelopes and red monkeys rest
'Hakuna matata' sings Rashid, our guide
He regales us with tales of mangroves as we ride

On a boat over choppy waters to Prison Island
Sold to a British Lord by an Omani Sultan
Never as a prison, but used as a quarantine
The turquoise sea views from here are mighty pristine

Adorning Stone Town are carved Indian doors
Coral walls, Arabesque interiors - all treasure troves
The markets aromatic with peppers and cloves
Just where once were auctioned slaves in droves

Birthplace of Freddie, Queen's front man
Strange few locals know of his jam
Africa, the keeper of Dr. Livingstone's heart
It was here, in abolishing slavery, he played his part
