Not all Auto-Rickshaw Drivers in India are Inconsiderate

How My 5 Year Old Daughter Saved the Lives of My Entire Family
At 03:00 in the morning on 02 Jun 2015, I got a phone call from my uncle. By the time I could pick up the call, I missed it.

Little did I know that my day on 02 Jun was about to begin with a horrific message.

What I learnt from an Unknown Pan Shop Owner on a Bus Journey from Kannur to Mysore
It had been a merry-go-round trip for me the whole morning. I was desperately looking for a ride from Kannur to Mysore, but on enquiring from a local, he advised me to go to the Kannur town. However, upon reaching the town, I realized there wont be any bus until afternoon, by which time, I would have lost my flight back to Nagpur.
