Want to take a trip these holidays? Make planning your vacation easy with this step-by-step guide which has many useful travel tips.
I am such an obsessive planner when it comes to traveling that my husband often wonders if I enjoy traveling or planning for traveling. By the time I actually board the flight, I practically have had a virtual tour of the place. Some people might call this process the murder of ‘spontaneous fun’ but, trust me, it’s not.
A decent planning ensures that you don’t land up in shady places, waste your time in unimportant (which may be famous) places, end up buying low quality local products for obnoxious prices and eat Chinese food in a Goan restaurant and vice versa.
What I leave for spontaneity is the experience that the destination offers. Whatever information I find out during my obsessive research-this-travel-destination phase, I use that only to plan my itinerary.
Once my itinerary is set, I let the travel take its own course. I never get into “Ah! this place had a bad review of blah site. I should have avoided it.” mode. I then enjoy that “bad” experience and move on to the next item on my itinerary.
So, if you are someone like me, who likes to gather a lot of information before planning a trip, here are some quick and easy-to-follow tips for your research-this-travel-destination phase and plan-your-travel phase.
PS: “A management degree ruins your life”, says my adventurous husband after reading this draft! So, take your call!

Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
Sullu vows to never, ever speak to Renu again. Every time, a Hindi film song extolls the virtues of ‘Dosti’, she feels a tide of anger within her.
Sullu arrives at the duck-pond and seats herself on ‘their’ bench.
Two girls are standing near the edge of the pond. Around seven or eight years old, they are clutching a bag of food in their hands. They call out making cooing sounds.
Sullu knows what will happen next and watches with amusement.
