How to Make Sure Your “Budget” Airline Ticket Is The Real Deal

Airline tickets on low-cost carriers can be extremely affordable at first glance. But that’s before the addition of a cauldron of hidden expenses that can ensnare the unsuspecting traveler. Paying for your flight, for example, should not be an “optional extra”. The good news is that you can avoid these add-ons. With a little inside knowledge – and time – it is possible to travel for the advertised price of a budget flight. The key ingredient to inexpensive flying is flexibility. Can you move you...

Compendium of my published articles

I’ve decided (for my own convenience and reference) to bring together all my published articles (not books/manuscripts) since 1980 into a single “book”. This task is pretty daunting, but hopefully I’ll find time to complete it in the coming months. As a first step, I’ve managed to compile my TOI writings since 2007. DOWNLOAD WORD VERSION […]

Best things to do in Guadeloupe

“Most people, they think we’re in f**king Mexico,” my guide laughs over rum punches on my first night in Guadeloupe. “Like we’re gwa-da-LOOP-ay or something.” Such is the struggle of Guadeloupe (pronounced gwa-da-LOOP), the French Caribbean island that sits smack in the middle of the Lesser Antilles near St. Maarten and Dominica. AKA nowhere near Mexico. Though it’s one of the larger Caribbean territories, it somehow gets forgotten in North America’s collective consciousness. Which is a shame...

Sanjay Sonawani’s response on Reddit to some misguided “rebuttal” of his views

On Reddit someone called Mad_Sanghi wrote: This is weird. Instead of thinking vedas as the source of Hinduism, the author argues it is a later addition by some immigrants. I think it is BS, because bramahnical society was using them, before the gupta period, as is visible by rise of Buddhism or Jainism before 5 […]

Southern food, however, is forever tied to the story that Adjepong wants to tell about West African food. Gr...
