  1. Love your tips. Prevention is indefinitely better than cure. I used to work in the travel insurance industry and used to open claims for people who were on trip. We did have a few who had purchased our insurance and who had called, stranded in Nepal at the time of the earthquake. I can say, seeing as I worked in that field, that travel insurance is very important. Does not matter whether it’s for healthcare, flights or baggage, you just never know when something could go wrong. WE don;t wish for it to go wrong but sometimes, they still do. That’s why being prepared is the first step, like you said.

    1. thanks for your comment. It is my duty to share some tips to the public at large. As I encountered big flood in Ooty . I was stranded in a college hostel with one warden without clean water, electricity, and food for a week. We salvaged on the moulded bread and drank our 1st-day urine to survive. we ate pup for our protein supplement. After the flood had subsided, we were scrawny and dehydrated and unable to walk. A vividly experience that I will carry to my grave.
