the great indian outdoors

@sum.err.pun The past few months of staying indoors under lockdown have got to have gotten to even the most dedicated of homebodies. By now, most of us are itching to get outside and explore beyond our four walls. We must adapt our lives and lifestyles to the new normal. While governments across the world figure out best practices and ease up on restrictions, we can find hope in the fact that there’s plenty to explore still, away from urban hubs and crowds, and more in the soothing lap of nature in India. Across the length and breadth of our country, there are many places to get out amid nature and reconnect with the planet and the other species that inhabit it. Travelling locally has many advantages. Not only does it minimise risks…

turkish airlines shows the way with international aviation

The aviation industry is one of the crucial pillars of the global economy, and plays an especially important role when it comes to travel. With the pandemic shutting down flights across the world in March, aviation was critically affected. Now, months later, with lockdowns across the world easing up and international travel gradually resuming, there’s some great news from Turkish Airlines. It was reported last week, as the busiest operator in Europe. In just the first week of June, the airline operated 359 flights out of Istanbul. Eurocontrol, a pan-European civil-military organization that supports European aviation confirmed that on June 17, the airline had 400 flights in the Eurocontrol zone, the first time any airline has hit that number since March. Of course, all safety and health protocols are being adhered…
