Indian Shame in Turkey- Dilemma of the Indian traveller



This is a narrative of a meeting on our last day in Turkey.

How does you deal with the reality of one’s country being unsafe for women? The feeling of shame that follow when you are unable to recommend your country to  a female tourist is overwhelming…

An EXCERPT”……my friends cancelled their holiday at the last minute. I am traveling alone. So, our embassy advised me not to travel to India, because it is unsafe for women.”

We digested this information in silence and some consternation.

 It was, indeed, true that female tourists are being dissuaded from traveling to our country.
