In November last year, my younger sister decided to make a lone trip to North-East India. I asked (no, I demanded!) that she write her experiences and do a guest post on my blog. When she showed me what she had written I liked it so much that I wanted it to be published on a reputed platform with a much wider reach than my blog. And so I suggested the online magazine “Women’s Web”.
Before her article was submitted I happily put on an editor’s hat for her and gleefully slashed my sword through any stray grammatical and spelling errors I could pounce on. I also chopped quite a few heads… err…I mean, words to whip it into shape within a decent word limit. And here is the final product: http://www.womensweb.in/2016/02/my-experience-as-a-woman-traveling-alone-in-north-east-india/
The preamble, which was written by the editors at Women’s Web says: “A woman traveling alone is rare in India. Here’s a journey taken by the writer to the Northeast, on which she learnt a lot, not just about the place, but about what she could do alone.“
