Mozambique Diaries Part 3: Baia dos Cocos – The Coconut Bay by Debasish B.

Guest Post by Dr. Debasish Bhattacharya.

During my field trip a weekend came as an unexpected boon. Some community consultations were planned during the weekend but due to local festival villagers requested us to postpone those during the coming week. However, I had carried out a few consultations already to capture people’s views on the road infrastructure development.

Travel Tips: How to pack liquids in cabin luggage

When I travel on holidays, I almost always carry only a cabin luggage. I find my trusted backpack provides me with greater mobility and flexibility than having to carry a suitcase. Also, having only a carry-on luggage mean zero chances of lost luggage on long-haul flights and also eliminates waiting for luggage at the conveyor belt upon arrival.
With all its perks, carrying only a cabin luggage comes with certain restrictions. Before you decide to pack your luggage for carry-on, I strongly recommend you read the TSA guidelines from the airport/airlines' website.
In this post, I shall share with you how I pack liquids in my carry-on luggage.

Bengali-style Hilsa Fish Chutney Dessert Recipe

Us Bengalis, we like our fish. And of all fish, Ilish (Hilsa) occupies a special place in our hearts. Over the years, I have had all possible Hilsa preparations, or so I thought.
Last weekend, while at my in-laws' place, I had Hilsa Chutney and it was a singularly mind blowing bit of dessert I have had in my entire life - not only because it was tasty, it was - mother-in-law is a fantastic cook - but because I could have never envisioned this dish had I not had it.


Here is the recipe should you decide to try it:
