Holiday ideas with a difference
Life today is veering round to the dictum, `Work hard, and play hard'. Happiness is a moot concept, but there is no doubt that seeing and experiencing nature is good for us. Better still, doing something different like trekking in the wild or cruising past glaciers triggers changes in our mental state that can be positively beneficial in day-to-day life. Moreover it is the season to do something jolly, so here are some ideas to tempt you off the beaten track, says SUMITRA SENAPATY.
Focus
OPINION
Pravasi Bharatiya or true Brit?
For many U.K.-based NRIs, the Indian Government's recent offer of dual citizenship may turn out to be more of a liability than a blessing, writes KALPANA WILSON.


PERSPECTIVE
Adding `life to years'
Working towards a hunger-free India needs the active cooperation of local bodies like the panchayat, says L.C. JAIN, but the blatant flouting of constitutional norms is an impediment to their functioning.
HEALTH
Marketing sanitation
The unhygienic practice of open defecation leads to contamination of water sources and high incidence of disease. AVIK GHOSH reports on a successful mission in West Bengal that led villagers to adopt sanitary toilets.
Time capsule
In a fast changing sports world, the Brisbane Tied Test of 1960 will always remain a very satisfying game of cricket, writes ASHWATH NITYANANDAN.

    Lifestyle
    ADVERTISING
    Peddling dreams in tough times
    Indian advertising is at a difficult intersection. Though armed with a marvellous technology, it often overlooks content. The form thus assumes meaningless importance, and sometimes communication suffers, writes GAUTAMAN BHASKARAN.
    JOTTINGS
    Roots ... in the High Ranges
    NICOLA-ROSE O'HARA didn't come to India to find herself, or the meaning of life, or a cure for anything, or any other thing than to see where three generations of her family lived. She found kindness, curiosity and openness ... The conclusion of a two-part article.

    REVIEW
    A third collection with variety
    One of the hazards of a single-author collection is monotony. But in this work, Keki N. Daruwalla offers such a variety of voices that boredom is kept away, says SHASHI DESHPANDE.
    EXTRACTS
    Challenges in science
    Science and technology have moved at a great pace since independence. What are the achievements and what more needs to be done? Extracts from a new book that focuses on this question.
