The best places to travel in March

March, for many, is the best month of the year. It’s the month when the perpetual freeze of winter moves away, slowly making room for sunshine, flowers, and all that happy stuff you dream about when snow’s literally blocking your front door. It’s also the month that brings us spring break, spring training, and festivals with burning statues, throwing paint, and Aussies jumping in a river. And then there’s that holiday on the 17th where everybody is suddenly Irish and nobody goes back to work ...

Experiencing India As a Teenager

This article by my niece was first published in The Journal, the Intrepid Travel Blog. I have their permission to repost it. I am so proud of Erin for doing a write up for the Intrepid blog that I of course had to share it here! In addition, I didn’t help her at all with this, she worked directly with the editor; in fact I didn’t even see it until it was published! I’m so happy she enjoyed her trip and that she shared her thoughts on the Niece Project! As a 17-year-old girl living in Nebraska,...

The best (and worst) airline food

Airlines aren’t known for their culinary prowess. Putting the words “airplane” and “food” together inspires a mental image of mystery meat and peas stuffed into a tinfoil tray. But for one man, the meals are the inspiration behind a dedicated food Instagram and blog. Nik Loukas has been reviewing airline meals on his blog, Inflight Feed, and Instagram of the same name since 2012. Over the past seven years, he’s flown on (and eaten on) more than 500 flights, consuming everything from sushi to ...

Seven reasons why BJP’s breast-beating about the grand alliance of Opposition parties doesn’t make sense unless you are a ‘bhakt’, bot, troll, or media lapdog

Dainik Jagran front page on the day after SP and BSP announced a pre-poll alliance in Uttar Pradesh, accompanied by another “searing attack” by Narendra Modi *** The “United India” rally in Calcutta, where 20 political parties stood on one stage on January 19, has understandably sent BJP and its bhakts, bots, trolls, media lapdogs, and trojan horses into an almighty tizzy. Coming as it did exactly a week after the SP and BSP announced an alliance in Uttar Pradesh, 2019 doesn’t look qui...

Narendra Modi gets a lesson from a Harvard history prof: “To truly honour Netaji Bose, include the minorities; speak out against religious hatred; uphold equal citizenship; respect Tipu and Gandhi”

Modern politics is mostly a 2.20 minute video wrapped in a 280-character tweet of a hollow “I’m-so-honoured-to-be-here” speech that can be delivered in any one of India’s 640 districts to the same canned applause of bhakts, bots, trolls and pliable journalists. Sometimes, it is also about putting on the headgear from the region you are visiting in a concession to “local sentiment”. On the penultimate day of his worst year (so far) in electoral politics, Narendra Modi went to the And...

We Live in an Age of Bullshit

A slightly shorter version of this was published as of The Rationalist, my column for the Times of India. Whenever the pressures of the world get too much for me, I lighten the burden by going over to Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. Trump, the only president who would fail the Turing Test, keeps lashing out at opponents and saying outrageous things, often in ALL-CAPS, the internet version of screaming. It’s wonderfully entertaining, and got even more so when he lashed out at Narendra Modi last w...

Most popular street food in Mumbai

Even dishes that a country considers most traditional can come from somewhere else. Ingredients and recipes cross borders and transform, each meal containing its own narrative. This is as much true in India as anywhere else. Here, certain foods are one of the more benign legacies of colonization. And few dishes are a better example of this than pav, a soft Portuguese bread roll that’s a beloved component of some of Mumbai’s favorite street foods. In 1498, Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama lan...

First Nitin Gadkari, now Manohar Parrikar: Is the RSS sending clear signals to Narendra Modi not to take anything for granted in 2019? It is unlikely that Narendra Modi‘s media advisor is secretly writing a book titled ‘The Prime Ministerial Accident“, because of course, the smart man has not made the stupid mistake that Manmohan Singh made: of hiring a “dubious” media advisor like Sanjaya Baru. Notwithstanding that, the year of the lord, 2019, has already had its most exciting roadcrash. On January 1, M...

Some are obvious choices, others a little more unexpected but all are amazing places to discover for one reason or another. Also, these are in NO PARTICULAR ORDER. I don’t want to see anyone complaining that one destination is ranked higher or lower than another one; they all have my love and admiration. Non-Coastal USA I explored a lot of my ow...

Travel to Eat: My Favorite Food Moments of 2018

I write about food a lot on this site, but with good reason. I firmly believe that it’s the most important aspect of the travel experience, forming some of our strongest memories through taste and smell. It’s also the fastest way to learn about a new culture and what the people value. More than anything else though, it’s just a lot of fun. There’s nothing better than snacking your way through a foreign market, or tentatively ordering a meal, not quite sure what you’ve gotten yourself into. It c...
